  • Breast Cancer Awareness Month

    October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 

    Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in South Australian women. Every week in South Australia, 26 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and five will die. 

    The good news is that the five-year relative survival rate at diagnosis is the highest of all women’s cancers at 91 per cent.

    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

    Getting to know your body by being breast aware at any age is also important, as well as getting to know your family history of breast and ovarian cancer.

    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.
