From Tuesday 31st May - Friday 17th June, BreastScreen WA will be in Waroona offering FREE screening mammograms in their mobile clinic for Women aged 50 to 74 years! (Women 40 years and over are also eligible to attend)
Breast cancer is the most common life threatening cancer for women, and 1 in 7 women in Australia will develop breast cancer in their lifetime.
Having a screening mammogram (breast x-ray) every two years significantly increases the chance of a woman surviving breast cancer and reduces the amount of treatment required.
More than 75% of breast cancers occur in women over the age of 50. Research shows that screening is most effective for this age group.
Screening mammograms may detect 70-90% of breast cancers.
Any woman with a persistent change in a breast should contact her doctor immediately. Dates may be subject to change. If visit dates are not suitable, participants are welcome to book at the clinic in a different town or at any of their permanent clinics.
For more information please visit BreastScreen WA’s website www.breastscreen.health.wa.gov.au
To make your free screening mammogram appointment – book online www.breastscreen.health.wa.gov.au or call 13 20 50.
