In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently unable to accept new self-referral breast screening appointments. Please contact your healthcare provider if you are experiencing any new breast symptoms.

All sites are working at a reduced capacity for breast imaging appointments in order to implement public health directives and ensure it is a safe environment for patients and staff. If you have an appointment booked, someone will contact you to confirm or postpone your appointment. If you are feeling unwell, please contact us to determine if your appointment should be rescheduled.

Your patience is appreciated as we work through rebooking cancelled appointments. Please check back for updates.

Welcome to the Nova Scotia Breast Screening Program. This site is designed to provide information about the Nova Scotia Breast Screening Program and how to access its services. Please take the time to read the information presented here and contact the Breast Screening Program for additional details. We welcome your interest in your own health care.

Statistics show that one out of eight women in Nova Scotia will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. Very early detection of breast cancer improves the chance of a cure. The Nova Scotia Breast Screening Program has been developed to assist in the early detection of breast cancer. The program offers women information on breast health and mammography (breast X-ray).
