A total of 900 women residents participated in the study, with ages of 30 years old and above using quota-sampling technique.

The results were the following: (1) respondents have low level of awareness towards mammography; (2) respondents have positive attitude towards mammography which means that respondents are willing to subject themselves to mammographic procedure; (3) no significant differences were found between the overall level of awareness when they are grouped according to family background while there are significant differences when grouped according to age, civil status, educational attainment, employment status family history and monthly family income; (4) no significant differences were found between the overall level of attitude of women when they are grouped according to age, civil status, educational attainment, family background, family history, and monthly family income while employment status does not have significant differences on attitude.
