  • Breast Cancer Awareness Month

    October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 

    Breast cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in women. Every week in South Australia, 27 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and four will die. 

    The good news is that around 90 per cent of cases are curable if detected early.

    You can help catch breast cancer by promoting free, two-yearly mammograms to women aged 50–74. They take just 10 minutes and can be booked by calling BreastScreen SA on 13 20 50. 

    Not in Adelaide? The BreastScreen SA mobile unit is travelling throughout South Australia. Find out when it’s coming to a location near you.

    This month, start a conversation and encourage action in your practice, workplace or community to save more women’s lives.
