    Breast cancer screening 

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

    The good news is that, if detected early, the five-year survival rates for breast cancer is the highest of all cancers.

    Every woman aged 50–74 is eligible for free two-yearly screening mammograms through BreastScreen SA. It takes just 10 minutes, and you can book by calling BreastScreen SA on 13 20 50. 

    Women aged 40–¬49 and 75 and older may also be eligible for free screening mammograms. 

    Women of all ages are encouraged to stay breast aware—regularly checking their own bodies for any signs of changes. To do this effectively, you need to know what’s normal for you, and see your GP if you notice any changes.  

    If you’re concerned about your breast health or family history, talk to your GP.

    Screening mammograms and self-checks don’t take much of your time, but they could save your life.

    So get screened, and get on with living.
