Your next breast screen

For women aged 50–74, a breast screen (mammogram) every 2 years is the best way to find breast cancer early, before you can notice a change or feel a lump.1550 

Some women have a higher risk of developing breast cancer and may be asked to have a screen every year. 

If you are aged between 50–74 years, we will send you a reminder when your next screen is due. Don’t forget to tell us if your contact details change. 

Know your normal – be breast aware  

It’s important to know how your breasts look and feel, so you can tell if something changes between breast screens.

Check for changes by looking at and feeling your breasts regularly.

If you notice any breast changes, see your doctor as soon as possible.
