Discount on mammograms and MRI's

In support of Breast Health Awareness Month, members of the RSSA are offering a 10% discount on mammograms and breast MRI during the month of October and first half of November.

In support of Breast Health Awareness Month in South Africa, the RSSA is highlighting the benefits of good breast health and promoting breast imaging for detecting breast cancer in its early stages and all participating members of the RSSA are offering a 10% discount on mammograms and breast MRI during the month of October and first half of November.

In ‘Westernised’ communities the incidence increases to one in eight and if you have close relative who had breast cancer the risk increases to one in six. October is Breast Health Awareness Month, and women throughout the world are looking at ways to reduce the risk of getting breast cancer and diagnosing it early to optimise treatment. 

Symptoms of breast cancer include a new lump or mass. A painless, hard  lump which  has uneven edges is more likely to be cancer. However some cancers are tender, soft and rounded. Other signs of breast cancer include, swelling, skin irritation, nipple pain or a nipple turning inward, redness, scaliness or thickening of the nipple or breast skin, discharge (other than milk), or a lump in the underarm area.
