Dr Jane Brazier, Director of BreastScreen Queensland’s Brisbane Northside Service encourages all women, in particular those aged between 50 and 74 years, to make an appointment at one of the many BreastScreen Queensland services.
‘Making an appointment to have a free breast screen is a really good New Year’s resolution because it is so easy to do and so important for women,’ Dr Brazier said.
A breast screen is the most effective method of detecting breast cancer at a very early stage even before a lump can be felt or seen. This is important because finding breast cancer at an early stage gives a woman the best possible chance for successful treatment and wellbeing.
‘All women from the age of forty are eligible for a free breast screen every two years. It is an important part of looking after your health,’ Dr Brazier advised.
BreastScreen Queensland Brisbane North services are located at Chermside, Kippa-Ring, Keperra, Indooroopilly, North Lakes and David Jones in the City. Appointments only take about 20-30 minutes and a GP referral is not required.
