Breast screening

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia, with more than 75% of all cancer occurring in women aged over 50.

The most effective way to reduce breast cancer illness and fatality is through regular screening of women using mammography.

BreastScreen Queensland provides free screening and assessment to eligible women every two years in Brisbane south.

The National BreastScreen Australia Program is open to women without symptoms of breast cancer who are aged between 50 and 74-years-old, as this demographic is most at risk of developing breast cancer. Women in their 40s or 75 years and over are also eligible to participate in the BreastScreen Queensland program.
