Hi Have any of you had your check up mammograms during Covid crisis. I am due my 2nd mammogram post treatment in December. I am anxious it won’t happen as apparently there is a backlog of 1 million people. I don’t know if these are only the 3yearly Screenings or are also the post treatment mammograms. Anybody know?

Good question. My 3 year mammogram would be due in January, so we'll see. A friend had asked the same question about the regular bowel test kit screening, has this stopped? Are all these screenings administered by PHE?
I had my first one back in September 2013, all others since have been in September, so I was surprised to get a letter to go a couple of weeks ago, off I went, bit apprehensive to the the virus, but needn't had worried, was told results would be through in about 3 weeks , they came after 10 days, all clear
I had my 2nd follow-up mammogram as normal & an MRI in Aug & Sept this year. I do wonder if it's a 'postcode lottery' and depends on where you live and the local situation re. covid.
Hope you get your appointment, they are so important for peace of mind aren't they.
Hi I had my first yearly one after diagnosis was due in march but was put back until June, got results in a few days, all good. That's in Leicester x
Hi, I had my first follow-up appointment pretty much a year to the day from my operation. Couldn’t fault my local hospital. Hope yours is on time and all goes well x
I am in my 5th year of post treatment and had my annual mammogram in June as normal. Given you are a much earlier stage would not think there should be any problem. Don't worry they will be in touch. Hope you reach your 5 years with no worries.
Mine are 2 yearly now but should’ve been this year, I was wondering the same thing. I usually get invite from the mobile unit. Don’t like to think it will be delayed at all, I know I’ve only one but it’s still very important
Hello, Just to say that I too had my mammogram as scheduled. I too was worried but the appointment came through no problem. I am now 3 years post surgery. My mammograms are scheduled on the anniversaries of surgery rather than diagnosis or the start of treatment. I hope your appointment comes through soon, but I wouldnt hesitate to chase it up if you feel they may be a delay. Good luck. x
My friend was due to have hers July/Aug cant remember which and it was done she had go different hospital than usual - so I am hoping this bodes well for me for February next year we had it both in the same year I finished treatment in the June and she was diagnosed in August same year we live North West London area
