Interval cancers are cancers that are diagnosed in between screening episodes only within the routine population and very high risk NHS breast screening programmes. The management of women screened through family history services is governed by National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidance.
This document provides advice for services on:
- reporting, classification and monitoring of interval cancers
- how to carry out reviews for cancers that occur following a previous assessment
See Breast screening: interval cancers and duty of candour toolkit for guidance on the role of breast screening and symptomatic services in identifying interval cancers and giving results to women.
