Early Detection Saves Lives
Norfolk General Hospital participates in the Ontario Breast Screening Program (OBSP), which provides breast screening mammography services for women of all ages.
If you are a woman aged 50 years and older, and at average risk for breast cancer, clinical guidelines recommend breast screening every two years. Regular mammograms (breast x-rays) help with early detection and treatment of breast cancer.
Women enrolled in the Ontario Breast Screening Program will be notified of their test results, and will automatically be sent a reminder when their next mammogram is due. If follow-up is necessary, it is coordinated by either the screening site or your family doctor or nurse practitioner.
Self referrals for breast screening are available through Norfolk General Hospital. Please call (519) 426-4006 to book your digital mammogram.
