Who is invited?
The Norwegian Breast Cancer Screening Programme invites all women between 50 and 69 years of age every two years, because the effect of mammography screening is best documented in this age group.
A personal invitation letter suggesting a specified time and date is automatically sent to women in the target group. Age at first invitation may vary from 48-53, but all women will receive ten invitations in total.
It will normally be two years between each invitation, as long as the woman is not reserved against permanent storage of personal data in the Cancer Registry.
When will you receive an invitation?
Women born 1943 - 1962 are now invited in all counties.
Here you can find an overview of when women will be invited to the programme, based on county of residence and municipality (last updated in July 2012).
