SCREENING AND PREVENTION

The Québec Breast Cancer Screening Program (PQDCS) offers women aged between 50 and 69 a mammogram every two years. Eligible women receive a letter in the mail inviting them to go to a designated screening centre for a mammogram.

Visit one of our breast clinics

The breast clinics at the Hôpital de Saint-Jérôme and the Hôpital de Saint-Eustache are cancer screening centres and work with patients who were referred by their family doctors.

When they arrive, patients are initially met by a nurse. The nurse will explain how the appointment and investigative examinations will be conducted. A social worker and a psychologist are available if support is needed.
