Breast Screening

Breast screening aims to detect breast cancers at an early stage, through mammography, before they have become large enough to feel. Women aged between 47 and 73 and registered with a GP are invited every three years to take part in the NHS Breast Screening Programme. Women over the invitation age range can still have screening every three years, by making their own appointment at their local breast screening unit. In the meantime, if you're worried about breast cancer symptoms such as a lump or thickened tissue in a breast, do not wait to be offered screening - make an appointment with your GP.
