| North Western BreastScreen
North Western BreastScreen provides a free mammographic screening program for women without breast symptoms or breast problems who are aged 40 and over. The program especially targets women aged 50 to 69.
BreastScreen recommends a screening mammogram once every two years.
BreastScreen is free and no doctor's referral is required.
While screening mammograms are primarily recommended for women age 50 to 69, women in their 40s and over 70 are still at risk of breast cancer and are welcome to have a free breast screening mammogram with BreastScreen Victoria every two years.
It is important for all women to get to know the normal look and feel of their breasts. Please see your doctor without delay if you develop any breast symptoms or notice any unusual changes.
Melbourne Health staff members are able to make free, confidential appointments at Parkville BreastScreen, located at The Royal Melbourne Hospital - Royal Park Campus or any of the other BreastScreen centres across Victoria by calling 13 20 50. Interpreters are also available upon request.
North Western BreastScreen operates screening sites at Moonee Ponds, Sunshine, Footscray, Broadmeadows, Werribee and Melton, as well as a visiting service to Broadford, Seymour, Gisborne, Kyneton & Sunbury.
North Western BreastScreen also provides counselling, support and information. Information workers are available to provide information sessions.
