Think pink -- it could save your life
Top five reasons why women over
50 should have a regular breast
Breast cancer -- it has touched
many of us, either through personal
experience or someone we know.
We can't prevent it, but if you're
a woman aged over 50 there is
something proactive you can do.
You can have a free, two-yearly breast
screen with BreastScreen SA (BSSA)
to help detect breast cancer early. If
you're still deciding whether breast
screening is right for you, here are a
couple of facts to consider:
1. It could save your life
A screening mammogram (breast
X-ray) is currently the only clinically
proven way to detect breast cancer
early, before symptoms can be felt.
This gives women a greater chance
of more successful treatment.
2. 75 per cent of all breast
cancer cases in Australia are
diagnosed in women over 50
This is why BSSA targets women
aged over 50 and strongly
recommends they participate in
regular breast screening until the
over 50 being diagnosed, and 9 out
of 10 having no family history of
breast cancer, do it for yourself and
3. BSSA has a team of leading
specialists working for the
Some of South Australia's premier
breast specialists (surgeons,
radiologists and pathologists) work
as part of BSSA's clinical team.
Together with stringent quality
assurance and national accreditation
standards, women attending BSSA
can be reassured that they receive
the highest quality care and service.
4. It's fast -- an appointment can
take less than 10 minutes
Often women think they are "too
busy for a breast screen". We lead
busy lives, juggling work and family
commitments. But an appointment
with BSSA can take less than 10
minutes, with Saturday morning
appointments offered at some of its
seven metropolitan clinics.
5. It's free, and you don't need a
So if you're a woman over 50,
call BSSA on 13 20 50 to make
an appointment or visit www.
It might just save your life.
