90% of women diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history?
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 two years will give you best chance for early detection and more treatment options.
It is FREE and available to you every two years.
While all women 40 and over are eligible, women aged 50–74 years are particularly encouraged to have a breast screen every two years as this is the age group most at risk.
Women over 50 years of age are at an increased risk of developing breast cancer, with 76 percent of women diagnosed with breast cancer being in this age group.
