BreastCheck

BreastCheck is a Government-funded programme providing breast screening and invites women aged 50 to 64 for a free mammogram on an area-by-area basis every two years.

The aim of BreastCheck is to reduce deaths from breast cancer by finding and treating the disease at an early stage.


BreastCheck encourages all women who receive an invitation to attend their appointment.Women who have any concerns regarding their appointment can contact BreastCheck on Freephone 1800 45 45 55 or online at http://www.breastcheck.ie/

Breast screening is for women without symptoms and we urge any woman who has any concerns to visit her family doctor/GP immediately even if she has had a recent mammogram. We also encourage all women to remain breast aware between or after screenings and to check for any symptoms or changes in their breasts.
