Breast screening service

In 2008, the lifetime risk of a person developing breast cancer was 1 in 8 – that means that 1 in every 8 women may develop breast cancer at some time in their life.

The risk of breast cancer increases with age. 80% of all breast cancers occur in post menopausal women. The risk continues to increase as a woman gets older.

Breast cancer is very rare indeed in women during their teens and early twenties and is uncommon in women under the age of 35.

We offer a breast screening service in conjunction with the local commissioning group. Call us for more details.
