Did you know that a breastscreen is the best way to detect breast cancer early, well before a woman or her doctor can feel anything.

Finding breast cancer early provides women with the best possible chance of successful treatment and recovery.

Breast cancer is still the most common cancer diagnosed among women with one in eight Queensland women developing breast cancer at some stage in their life. 

Most women diagnosed with breast cancer are over the age of 50 and have no family history of the disease.

BreastScreen Queensland has been providing quality, world-class breast cancer screening services to Queensland women for over 20 years and is the only nationally accredited breast cancer screening service in the state.

All women aged 40 and over are strongly encouraged to have a free breastscreen every two years. The breastscreen is done in private with a female radiographer and a doctor’s referral is not necessary.

The BreastScreen Queensland bus will be onsite at the Rocky Expo and walk in appointments will be available.

For peace of mind, why not make time to attend for this important health check at your preferred location.
