At the Breast Clinic, patients feel cared for and comfortable in a safe environment, and are encouraged to actively participate in managing their breast health.

It is the best screening and diagnostic tool to detect early breast cancer and breast abnormalities in women with or without symptoms. It is recommended annually for females 40 years old and above, and for those with a family history of breast cancer.
Sonomammogram (Breast ultrasound)
A complementary study to mammography using soundwaves to evaluate and detect breast abnormalities and characterize breast nodules whether solid or cystic in nature.
