Breast Screening (Mammogram)

Breast screening checks use X-rays to look for cancers that are too small to see or feel.

Anyone registered with a GP as female will be invited for NHS breast screening every 3 years between the ages of 50 and 71. You'll get a letter in the post inviting you.

If you have not been sent a letter

If you have not been invited for breast screening by the time you are 53 and think you should have been, contact your local breast screening service.
