This webpage provides information in English about the Dutch national breast cancer screening programme. If you are between 50 and 75 years old, you will receive an invitation for breast cancer screening every two to three years. 

Around one in seven women develop breast cancer at some time in their life. The national breast cancer screening programme enables us to detect at an earlier stage if someone has breast cancer. With early detection, there is a greater chance that treatment will be successful, and often less far-reaching treatment is required. 

On this webpage, you will find information materials about the breast screening programme, like a leaflet, an invitation letter and result letters.
