WOMEN are being urged to see breast screening as part of their normal health care routine.
All women between 50 and 70 are invited to come along for screening once every three years as part of the Scottish Breast Screening Programme.
Medical experts fear that some women are being put off attending because they’d rather not know whether or not they may have breast cancer – despite the fact that early detection increases the chances of recovery and can limit the extent of treatment required.
Dr Sue Payne, breast screening co-ordinator in Lothian, encourages women to attend.
