BreastScreen Victoria

BreastScreen Victoria is an accredited part of BreastScreen Australia, jointly funded by State and Federal Governments. The program includes three service components: the BreastScreen Victoria Coordination Unit, 42 permanent screening sites and eight Reading and Assessment BreastScreen Services across the state.

What we do

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:

  • BreastScreen Australia which aims to reduce mortality and morbidity from breast cancer by actively recruiting and screening women aged 50-74 years for early detection of the disease. 
  • The National Cervical Screening Program aims to reduce incidence and death from cervical cancer, in a cost-effective manner, through a more organised approach to cervical screening. 

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.
