Make an appointment to visit the lovely staff at the BreastScreen Queensland mobile van while they are still in the area
Reminder that the BreastScreen Queensland mobile service is still in the area until 8 April 2022 so if you haven’t already made an appointment make sure you do so!
Call 13 20 50 or book online at breastscreen.qld.gov.au to visit the van located at Lions Park Tin Can Bay.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women, with one in seven Queensland women diagnosed in their lifetime. A breast screen can detect cancer early, before a woman or her doctor can feel anything, and regular breast screening is the most effective way to reduce deaths from breast cancer.
Women aged 50-74 years are particularly encouraged to have a free breast screen every two years.
Women aged 40-49 and those over 75 can also attend this free service.
Women who are unable to attend the mobile van while it’s visiting Tin Can Bay, can book an appointment at the BreastScreen service located at Goldfields Plaza in Gympie. This service operates Mondays, Tuesdays and one Saturday each month.
