Breast Screen SA - Be Part of our Circle of Friends

Breast Screen SA is on a mission to strengthen our circle of friends and screen more women than ever before in the hope of finding more early stage breast cancers. This gives our friends (the women of South Australia) a greater chance for simpler breast cancer treatments and more successful outcomes.

With only 1 in 2 South Australian women aged over 50 having a regular breast screen, that’s almost certainly someone you know and care about who isn’t taking part.

Breast Screen SA has set a target to screen an additional 5000 women by 30 June 2016, with the hope of finding another 30-40 breast cancers.

Breast Screen SA have seven metropolitan clinics that are open Monday to Friday, with some Saturday morning appointments available. There are also three mobile screening units that travel to 27 rural locations across the state every two years, ensuring every South Australian woman aged over 40 has access to free breast cancer screening.
