The objective of the study was to obtain information concerning the barriers in the accessibility to specialist breast examinations experienced by rural women. The study covered 402 rural women from the Lublin Region, and a control group of 100 urban women from this region, aged 35-70 and over. The study was conducted by means of a questionnaire form. In addition, all respondents had mammography performed. The result of mammographic examination was correlated with the result of the survey. The results of the study showed that rural inhabitants reported the problem of hindered access to specialist breast examinations more frequently than urban women. More than 70% of them encountered various barriers, which, in their opinions, made the performance of the above-mentioned tests impossible. Among the limitations reported there were primarily organizational and economic barriers. Every third woman living in a rural area resigned from the performance of mammography or USG, because of fear of the test itself or its result.
