BreastScreen Victoria is part of a government-funded, national breast cancer screening program that provides high quality, free mammography screening, particularly for women aged between 50 and 69 years old.

One in 9 women will be affected by breast cancer. A screening mammogram is the best way of detecting the disease at its earliest stages and increases a woman's chance of survival. Research shows that when combined with improved cancer treatments, breast screening reduces breast cancer deaths. The screen takes just a few minutes and can identify cancers that are too small to be felt by you or your doctor.

Early detection of breast cancer can improve the chances of successful treatment and recovery. Fifty percent of women diagnosed with breast cancer are aged 50 to 69 years. BreastScreen Victoria provides women in this age range with a free screening mammogram every two years.

To arrange your free screening mammogram, call 13 20 50.
