Routine breast screening services are fully operational in Lancashire and South Cumbria. Local people are being assured that it is safe to attend this quick but vital appointment if invited. Breast screening can spot cancers when they are too small to see or feel, and it is important to find early signs of cancer to improve the chances of recovery. The risk of breast cancer increases with age, which is why all people with breasts aged between 50 and 70 are invited for screening every three years. Hear from Janet Ellison, Patient Navigator at South Lancashire Breast Screening Unit, about the support that is in place for you.
