FAQ 3

I've found a lump in my breast - can you tell me how I can get a mammogram?

The NHS Breast Screening Programme is a population screening programme which invites all women aged 50 to 70 as a matter of routine. It is not aimed at women who already have symptoms.

If you have found something that worries you or are concerned about your breast health, do not wait for your routine screening appointment. Instead, you should consult your GP in the usual way. He or she will decide whether or not you need to be referred for further investigations or treatment.
