Mammogram Appointment: FAQs
Taken from BreastScreen NSW website
Do I have to pay for my breast screen?
No, BreastScreen NSW offers free screening mammograms for all women over the age of 40.
What should I wear to my screening mammogram appointment?
You should wear a two-piece outfit, i.e. a skirt or pants, with a separate top. This is because you will need to remove your top for your mammogram.
You should also avoid using deodorant, talcum powder or creams before your breast screen appointment, as these can show up on your x-ray.
How long will my appointment take?
Most screening mammogram appointments only take 20 minutes. If you are a wheelchair user or have specific requirements, you may need to allow more time for your appointment.
Will I have privacy during my breast screen?
We understand that a screening mammogram can be a little daunting for some women. You should rest assured that our female-only screening staff are respectful of your privacy at all times.
You will be asked to remove your top in private. Your female radiographer will then work with you to ensure you are comfortable.
What should I do if I have breast implants?
Women with implants can have regular screening mammograms. It is important you let us know you have implants at the time of making your appointment and remind the staff on the day of your appointment.
I have a health condition or disability – can I still have a screening mammogram?
In most cases, women with health conditions or disabilities can still have a screening mammogram. Many of our screening centres are accessible, and our staff are trained in assisting women of all abilities.
