Approximately one woman in every 20 is asked to come back for more tests. This is because the mammogram results show that more tests are needed before we can give a result. These tests may include more mammogram's, a clinical examination, an ultrasound scan and possibly a needle biopsy.
Sometimes we need to call women back because the mammogram does not seem to include all the breast tissue or is not clear. We will tell you if this is the reason.
If you are diagnosed with breast cancer, finding it early gives the best chance of successful treatment. Our senior clinical team will discuss all the treatment options with you. The team will also make arrangements for your treatment.
