Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women.

If breast cancer is found at an early stage, there is a greater chance of saving a woman’s life.

As an Aboriginal woman, it's important you have a breast screen every 2 years from the age of 50. It is completely free and only takes around 20 minutes.

We want you to feel as comfortable as possible during your breast screen and will treat you with respect and care. Our screening staff are all women and we acknowledge your cultural and individual needs.

You are also welcome to come for a breast screen with family and friends - we can arrange group bookings.

We run special events for Aboriginal women - please contact our Engagement Team via email at for further information.
