Breast Screening

Breast Screening - MedRay Imaging Gordon Professional Center

MedRay Imaging houses the BC Cancer Breast Screening. Screening Mammograms are for healthy women with no known breast problems who do not have a history of breast cancer or breast implants. Screening Mammograms are recommended for all women in British Columbia between the ages of 40 and 74 at regular intervals every one or two years.

Screening Mammograms do NOT require a referral from your family doctor. You may arrange your own appointment by calling 604.927.2130. Please have your BC Care Card or your  Program I.D. number ready. 

Mammograms save lives

They help find cancer when it is small, allowing more treatment options and a better chance of recovery.

It is estimated that 1 in 8 BC women will get breast cancer in their lifetime.

Mammograms are safe and effective

Screening mammograms are considered the international gold standard for detecting breast cancer early. Mammograms can usually find lumps 2 or 3 years before a woman or her primary care provider can feel them.

Research has shown a 25 percent reduction in deaths from breast cancer among women who regularly screen.

Your breast cancer risk increases with age

While women with a family history of breast cancer have a higher than average risk, the biggest risk factor for breast cancer is being a woman over 50 years of age.

80 percent of breast cancer cases are diagnosed in women 50 years of age or older.
