Join BreastScreen WA as it turns Perth pink!

October is the busiest month of the year for BreastScreen WA as it takes part in Australia’s Breast Cancer Awareness month.
A range of events have been planned to increase the awareness of breast cancer, including:
  •          the annual BreastScreen WA Pink Ribbon Breakfast on Monday 24 October
  •          the 10th anniversary of Picnic in the Park on Tuesday 25 October to raise awareness about breast cancer and breast screening among Aboriginal women
  •          and more – see our Events page for more opportunities to engage with BreastScreen WA.

BreastScreen WA provides free screening mammograms every two years to women aged over 40 years with no breast symptoms.

Women aged 50 to 74 years are specifically targeted as screening has been shown to be most effective in this age group.

Up to 90 per cent of breast cancers can be detected via screening mammograms, significantly increasing a woman’s chance of surviving breast cancer and reducing the intensity and duration of any treatment required.
Here is your chance to engage with BreastScreen WA staff, ask questions and book your screening mammogram.
