When to expect an invitation

BreastScreen Norway invites all women between 50 and 69 years to have a screening mammogram every other year. Women automatically receive a personal invitation letter with a suggested screening appointment. Participation is voluntary. Age at first invitation may vary from 48 to 53 years.

When will I be invited?

NOTE: Due to the corona virus pandemic and a stop in all breat cancer screening services during spring 2020, invitations in BreastScreen Norway are delayed by two to three months. The delay is expected to last until summer 2022. 

To find out when women from your municipality are in line to receive an invitation, you can click on the area you belong to in the overview below. Please note that the list only applies to women who are invited for the first time. Women who have been invited previously will receive a new invitation about two years after the previous one (but delays must be expected, see above).
