Ladies, around 50, if you get the invitation..

For breast screening, please go!

Iíve just had my first, 3 weeks ago. Unfortunately they found something and I had to have further tests and a biopsy, I have family history of breast cancer also, but luckily today I got the all clear.

I initially was going to put the appointment off until after my holiday, but I would have probably forgotten and it would have been months before i thought about it again, but now Iím so glad I went, as they said I probably would never have felt it myself, it was only picked up on the mammogram.

I know us Dibbers are a sensible lot, but I was surprised at the take up rate, about 70%. Better than the cervical screening rate, but still not enough ladies looking after themselves properly.

To all the ladies that werenít as lucky as I was today, I wish you all the luck in the world and send a big hug, my two weeks of waiting have been traumatic enough so I canít imagine how ladies cope with a different diagnosis.

Look after yourselves girls xx

Yes! If you get the invite please go, if not for yourself, then for all of us too young to be invited but have this awful disease!

I completely understand that weíre a small minority of breast CA statistics and thatís why we donít get regular testing but all the more reason to go when youíre offered it - FOR FREE! (also why itís important that everyone of every age and gender checks their breasts, armpits and collar bones regularly!)

Thank you for going for your screening and I am so happy that you got good news! Xx

I've had 3 screenings and got called back after all 3. There is no history of breast cancer in my family and those call backs are scary. Thankfully all was fine on each occasion.

Yes please go - I was diagnosed with breast cancer aged 51 (no family history either).

Even if it is bad news there are quite a few of us on here who have survived to tell the tale.

Yes this, I was diagnosed aged 47 and no family history either, it's the club nobody wants to join, but thankfully is beatable.

Definitely go, i was diagnosed at christmas age 43, currently having treatment. In the waiting room they write on the board how many people did not attend for screening in the month and its frightening, i've also seen people leave the waiting room because they feel they have been waiting too long to be seen.

I got an invitation a few months ago thankfully it was all clear, my friend who is a couple of years older didn't get one, and was unfortunately diagnosed with breast cancer recently. She has had surgery and radiotherapy and is now ok. So even if you don't get the invitation when you reach 50 ask, it doesn't hurt at all.
Glad you got the all clear OP and a great reminder for all us ladies of a certain age.
