This study explored reasons for non-participation in breast cancer screening among previous cancer patients, who have high risk of developing a new primary cancer.Method: We conducted a population-based historical cohort study, including all women invited to the first organised screening round in 2008-2009 in the Central Denmark Region (n = 149,234). All data were based on national registers.Results: Among women with previous cancer (n = 6638), 25.3{\%} did not participate in breast cancer screening compared to 20.9{\%} of women with no registrations of previous cancer, thus previous cancer patients were 21{\%} less likely not to participate in breast cancer screening (PRR 1.21, 95{\%} CI 1.16-1.27).
