How to make a breast screen booking
BreastScreen SA provides more than 90,000 free screening mammograms (breast X-rays) each year to South Australian women primarily aged 50 to 74, with the aim of diagnosing breast cancer at an early stage, before it can be felt. With 1 in 7 Australian women developing breast cancer before the age of 75 (and 9 out of 10 women diagnosed having no family history of the disease), early detection can maximise the options for simpler treatments and more successful outcomes.
