BreastScreen Victoria, Bendigo, is part of the national breast cancer screening program, inviting women to have a free breast screen every two years. The program targets women aged 50 to 74 years and women in their 40s and 75 and over are also welcome to attend.
Regular breast screens are the best way to find breast cancer early, before any symptoms are noticed and when treatment is likely to be most successful.
The Australian Government's Cancer Screen website provides links to various different screening organisations, including:
The National Bowel Cancer Screening Program aims to reduce the incidence and death from bowel cancer by offering people turning 50, 55, 60 and 65 years of age screening with a faecal occult blood test in the privacy of their own home. Visit www.cancerscreening.gov.au for more information.
For bookings please visit www.breastscreen.org.au for more information or call 13 20 50.
We value feedback from patients, family members and carers.
