Screening for breast cancer (English)

Breast cancer is a common disease. Approximately 1 in 8 women in the Netherlands will get breast cancer during their lifetime. Most of these women are over 50 years old. We are therefore inviting all women over 50 to take part in the screening programme. They will be invited to undergo a free examination once every two years until they turn 76.
