Over 70?

Breast cancer risk rises as women get older. Even though women over the age of 70 are not automatically invited for breast screening, you are still encouraged to go for screening every three years. You can contact your local breast screening unit to make an appointment (call 0191 282 0202). For more information, please see the 'Over 70' Guide at the link below.
