Breast Cancer Facts


Breast cancer is the top cancer among Singapore women.


Your risk of breast cancer increases as you age.


A mammogram is the most reliable way of detecting breast cancer.

Breast cancer is easiest to treat in its early stages, when the cancer cells have not spread to other parts of the body. A mammogram, which is a screening tool to detect or confirm breast cancer symptoms, is the only effective method of detecting this disease early.


Going for regular mammograms should be part of your fight against breast cancer. Detecting breast cancer in its early stages:

  • Makes it highly curable.
  • Reduces the need for aggressive treatment.
  • Improves treatment outcomes and your chances of survival.

Besides routine mammograms, it is also helpful to do a monthly Breast Self-examination. This allows you to detect any changes in your breast, so you can seek medical help if needed.

Learn how to a Breast Self-examination, and understand the types of lumps you may find in your breast during your examination.


As part of the 2018 Breast Cancer Campaign, the Singapore Cancer Society is offering a $25 subsidy to eligible women* for their next mammogram.
