BreastScreen SA is the accredited
statewide breast cancer screening
program. It provides free screening
mammograms (breast x-rays) at two-
yearly intervals, primarily for women
aged 50 to 69. The aim is to reduce
deaths from breast cancer in this
target group, through early detection
of the disease.
What are the benefits of breast
Breast cancer screening is the
process of looking for breast cancer
in women who have no signs or
symptoms of the disease. Each
woman receives a set of standard
breast x-rays. These can detect most
breast cancers, including some too
small to be felt.
If breast cancer is found at an
early stage, before it spreads, there
is a greater chance of simpler,
Who benefits from having a
Screening is primarily recommended
for asymptomatic women aged 50 to
69. It is estimated that for individual
women in this age group, having a
screening mammogram every two
years reduces the chance of dying
from breast cancer by about 40%.
One screening mammogram is not
enough to last a lifetime, and women
are re-invited and encouraged to
attend for regular screening.
Research is less clear about the
benefits of screening mammograms
for women aged 40 to 49 and over
70. However, all women aged
over 40 with no breast symptoms
are eligible for screening and are
very welcome to phone for an
appointment if they wish to attend.
For appointments, phone
BreastScreen SA on 13 20 50. A
doctor’s referral is not required.
