Woodstock Hospital is an affiliate site of the Ontario Breast Screening Program (OBSP). 

The Ontario Breast Screening Program (OBSP) is a province-wide, organized cancer screening program that provides high-quality breast cancer screening throughout Ontario to 2 groups of women. The OBSP recommends that women between the ages of 50-74 get screened every 2 years with mammography and women ages 30-69 who are confirmed to be a high risk of developing breast cancer get screened once a year with a mammogram and breast MRI.

Women can be determined high risk if they have a referral from their physician and fall into the following risk categories:

  • Are known to have a gene mutation that increases their risk for breast cancer (e.g., BRCA1, BRCA2, TP53, PTEN, CDH1)
  • Are first-degree relatives (parent, brother, sister or child) of someone who has a gene mutation that increases their risk for breast cancer (e.g., BRCA1, BRCA2, TP53, PTEN, CDH1), have already had genetic counselling and have chosen not to have genetic testing
  • Have been assessed at a genetics clinic (using the IBIS or BOADICEA tools) as having a 25% or greater lifetime risk of breast cancer based on personal and family history
  • Has a personal or family history of breast or ovarian cancer
  • Has had radiation therapy to the chest to treat another cancer or condition (e.g., Hodgkin lymphoma) before age 30 and at least 8 years ago
