Breast cancer screening
In Estonia, women aged 50-69 years are invited to breast cancer screening at two-year intervals. In 2023 we invite women (including uninsured) who are born in 1955, 1957, 1959, 1961, 1963, 1965, 1967, 1998, 1971 and 1973.
The aim of breast cancer screening is to detect breast cancer at an early stage and in this way reduce the amount of painful and costly treatments and the rate of mortality.
The Health Insurance Fund pays for the screening of all health insured women
