Breast lumps are a common occurrence in women, the majority being benign lesions such as fibroadenomata in teenagers and young adults, and fibrocystic change and cysts in the older women. Only approximately from 10 to 20% of breast lumps are malignant.
As early detection of breast cancer can save lives, women aged 40 and above are strongly encouraged to undergo regular mammographic screening.
At KK Breast Centre, we understand and recognise the special needs women have when it comes to selecting and receiving expert consultations and treatments for any type of breast disease, cancerous and non cancerous.
We offer a one-stop centre fully dedicated to looking after breast health. First in Singapore to house a state-of-the-art breast imaging centre, this set-up enables women to have their
digital mammography, breast ultrasonography, surgical consultation, minimally invasive biopsies and procedures all under one roof. The imaging and procedures may not be performed on the same day of doctor’s consultation.
The centre is managed by a multi-disciplinary team of breast surgeons, radiologists, reconstructive surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists together with pathologists, physiotherapists, medical social workers and breast care nurses.
KK Breast Imaging Unit offers state-of-art dedicated breast imaging modalities which include full-field digital mammography, ultrasound as well as magnetic resonance imaging services. With digital mammography, more cancers can be detected earlier. It is also significantly more accurate in detecting breast cancers at the earliest stage, or when it is hidden by dense tissues. We do not encourage women age below 40 years of age to perform screening mammogram unless she has a family history of breast cancer.
