Information in other languages

Information about breast screening should be available to everybody. This area of the website lets you change information into the different languages that are commonly spoken in London.

The website uses a tool called 'Google translate' to automatically change one language into another via the internet. This is a valuable service, but it is automated so can present some problems with word for word translation. We have tried to use plain English on the website so it is clear and easy to read, and the automated translation makes it accessible to many more people.

If you require further language assistance, please contact The Barts and the London health advocacy service on

Norma breast screening attendee
(Screening attendee)

My breast cancer was found on a mammogram four years ago. I was 62 years old at the time and had attended my breast screening appointments regularly. I was totally unaware anything was wrong even though I self-check my breasts regularly. So it was a shock to find out I had cancer. But I was fortunate that it was found early through screening. It meant that my treatment for cancer was more successful and I am still alive four years later. I encourage all women invited to this free service to take up their invitation. It could mean another life saved.
