This question is only to be asked to women aged 40 to 69 years. The purpose is to identify when was the last time the respondent had a mammography. Read the following description(s) if the respondent does not understand what is meant by
mammography: “A mammography is a special x-ray of the breasts. It involves standing in front of a machine where each breast is placed between two plastic plates. The plates come together, pressing on the breast to make it as flat as possible. This procedure allows for lumps to be detected by the x-ray, to help detect breast cancer at an early stage.”
