About screening

Maybe this is your first time having a breast screen or you have been before but have not maintained your two-yearly breast screen.

Either way, making an appointment today with BreastScreen Queensland is a positive step and could save your life.

A breast screen, or screening mammogram, is an x-ray that can pick up small changes in the breast tissue, before you or your doctor may notice any changes.

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 breast screens is currently the most effective way to detect breast cancer early.
