Chwefror 2004 February

Corwen Health Centre

‘Breast Test Wales’ will be in Corwen this February. Screening is by automatic postal appointment for all women between the ages of 50 and 64. Breast screening is important because 1 woman in 11 in the UK develops breast cancer at some time in her life, most often after 50.

Screening finds those changes that often cannot be seen or felt. Early diagnosis offers the best chance of full recovery. Women who reach 65 in this year, and those over 65 will not receive an automatic appointment.

If you wish to be screened please telephone or write to North Wales Breast Screening Centre, Maes Du Road, Llandudno LL30 1QZ Tel. 01492 860888 and you will be sent an appointment.

Whatever your age - please contact your doctor if you notice any unusual changes in your breasts - even if you have been screened recently.
