The American Cancer Society recommends that a woman after the age of 40 should receive a yearly mammogram which can detect 85 to 90% of all breast cancers even before you feel a lump.
MBPJ is sponsoring free mammogram for PJ female residents of age 40 - 69 years. You may get this mammogram done at the SS20 Damansara Specialist Hospital.
Just walk in to the X-ray department and fill up a form. It is suggested you go in the afternoon as the morning session is always busy.
The average cost of a mammogram is around RM180 at a private hospital. So enjoy this benefit funded by MBPJ.
