During your breast screening you’ll have 4 breast X-rays (mammograms), 2 for each breast.
The mammograms are done by a specialist called a mammographer. The mammographer will be female.
Each mammogram will only take a few minutes. Your appointment should only last approximately 20 minutes.
Watch this short video, which demonstrates what you can expect when attending a mammogram appointment.

This is a state-of-the-art facility in The Glass Works shopping centre in Barnsley town centre.
