Most women share a common fear - breast cancer. From the age of 53, they are invited by their GP to have a mammogram - a procedure that screens the breast for any abnormalities. But many women don't understand what this involves. The 3 video tracks on this album explain why it is important to have a mammogram, hear from women being screened, show the processes involved and demonstrate what happens should an abnormality be found.

This material forms part of The Open University course SDK125 Introducing health sciences: a case study approach.
