Maybe this is your first time having a breastscreen or you have been before but have not maintained your two yearly breastscreen.
Either way, making an appointment today with BreastScreen Queensland is a positive step in the right direction.
A breastscreen, or screening mammogram, is an x-ray that can pick up small changes in the breast tissue.
As there is currently no means of preventing breast cancer, the focus is on reducing deaths by finding cancer as early as possible to maximise treatment options.
Having regular, two yearly breastscreens is the most effective way to detect breast cancer early or reassure you that your breast health is okay.
