Breast screenings in Ireland restarting 

I was really glad to hear today that breast screenings have restarted this week. I think there haven't been any screenings since March because of Covid! They are restarting with people that have waited the longest for screening.

To be eligible for free breast screenings in Ireland, you have to be over 50, I really think this needs to be lowered. I was 37 when I was diagnosed. If you have any doubts about changes in your breasts, please speak to your GP regardless of your age.
