Ontario Breast Screening Program (OBSP)

Hanover & District Hospital offers services for self-referral breast exams through OBSP. OBSP, is a province-wide, organized cancer screening program designed to encourage Ontario residents to get screened.  The program screens 2 different groups of people who are eligible for breast cancer screening in Ontario: those at average risk and those at high risk.


Regular screening is important because it can find cancer early, when treatment has a better chance of working.  Research shows that people ages 50-74 who get screened regularly with mammography can lower their chance of dying from breast cancer. See if you are eligible for self-referral and find out more information regarding the OBSP.
