The "mammogram" programme in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is offered to all women aged between 50 and 69 and consists of a mammogram every two years.


If risk factors are identified, the specialist (or referring GP) suggests a more extensive examination (ultrasound, ultrasound-guided biopsy, etc. ).
