Our Services Gold Coast Health

BreastScreen Queensland Gold Coast Service

BreastScreen Queensland provides free, high quality breast cancer screening and assessment services for women. 

Women aged between 50 and 74 years are recommended to attend for a regular breastscreen every two years.  Women in their 40s or aged 75 and older are also eligible for a free breastscreen. 

You can have a breastscreen at either a permanent location or at our mobile unit. You do not need a doctor’s referral.

A breastscreen, or screening mammogram, is an x-ray that can pick up very small changes in the breast tissue, before they can be felt or noticed. For women over 50, a breastscreen is the most effective way to detect breast cancer in its early stages.

If you have a lump, nipple discharge or any new breast changes, please contact your doctor without delay.

Our services

  • Health promotion and education
  • Screening mammograms
  • Assessment of screen-detected abnormalities
