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 breast screen every two years. Women in their 40s or aged 75 and older are also eligible for a free breast screen.
You can have a breast screen at either a permanent location or at our mobile unit. You do not need a doctor’s referral.
A breast screen, 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 breast screen 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.
