BreastScreen Queensland has decided to temporarily suspend routine breast screening to safeguard the health of clients, staff and community during the COVID-19 outbreak.
All women with cancelled appointments will be notified as soon as possible. Clients will be called to reschedule appointments once we can reopen.
Please be assured that if you have recently had a breast screen you will receive your results through the post or your online account. BreastScreen Queensland remains open for those women who have been asked to return for additional tests.
We know this will concern many people. If you have any questions or concerns, please call your local service on 13 20 50.
Please remain aware of the normal look and feel of your breasts. If you notice any changes please contact your doctor immediately, do not wait until your next breast screen. Breast changes to look out for include:
- a new lump or lumpiness, especially if it's only in one breast
- a change in the size and shape of your breast
- a change to the nipple, such as crusting, an ulcer, redness or the nipple pulled in
- a discharge from your nipple that happens without squeezing the nipple
- a change in the skin of the breast such as redness or dimpling or puckered skin
- a pain that doesn't go away.
We will keep you updated on when breast screening services will be available again and thank you for your understanding.

Early detection is your best protection – breast cancer screening saves lives. Regular breast screening is an excellent way to detect breast cancer in its early stage, even before you or your doctor can see or feel something.
Getting screened every 2 years will give you best chance for early detection and more treatment options.
It is FREE and available to you every 2 years.
While all women 40 years and over are eligible, women aged 50–74 years are particularly encouraged to have a breast screen every 2 years as this is the age group most at risk.
Women over 50 years are at an increased risk of developing breast cancer, with 76% of women diagnosed with breast cancer being in this age group.
