Your Questions Answered
Q: Due to the coronavirus, I can't get a mammogram done through the breast screening program in my province. Is there somewhere else where I can access a mammogram?
A: If this is a regularly scheduled mammogram, as part of a screening program, public programs are currently suspended to ensure the safety of patients. It's expected that these programs will resume after the peak COVID-19 period has passed; you should follow up with your screening program at that time. If you are symptomatic, meaning you've found a lump or there are noticable changes in your breast, your family doctor can still refer you for diagnostic imaging; however, there may be an increased wait time for this testing
