THE BreastScreen NSW mobile breast cancer screening bus will return to Muswellbrook PCYC next month, for a limited time.

Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women in Australia. 

And, local residents can take advantage of this service from June 21.

One in eight women in NSW will develop breast cancer in their lifetime and nine out of 10 of those women do not have a known family history of breast cancer.

BreastScreen NSW provides a high-quality service for the early detection of breast cancer. 

Early detection improves treatment outcomes and survival. 

While women 40 or older are eligible, women 50+ are particularly encouraged to attend because breast cancer risk increases with age.

Women should have regular screening mammograms every two years – once is not enough.

Having a mammogram isn’t difficult and early detection is vital.

Appointments are free and only take 20 minutes.
