Early Detection is our Best Protection!

BreastScreen NSW is part of the National Screening program.

Screens are recommended every 2 years particularly for ladies between 50 and 69 as 70% of breast cancers are diagnosed over the age of 50 years, however all ladies over the age of 40 are eligible for our service.

The BreastScreen service is free, high quality and may be coming to a centre near you.

They also have screening available at their fixed sites in Bathurst, Orange and Dubbo and offer blocks of screening during the year at Broken Hill Hospital.

Call 13 20 50 to make your appointment while the van is in your area, or to go to a fixed site what ever is most convenient to you.

Only takes about 20 minutes, and it might just save your life.
