Picture of Health
Screen with pride. Get your picture of health.
We provide free breast screens to women and trans and gender diverse people with no breast symptoms. Regular breast screens are the best way to find breast cancer early.
BreastScreen Victoria is Rainbow Tick accredited, meaning we are committed to offering a safe, inclusive, and welcoming service to LGBTI+ and trans and gender diverse people.
Check your eligibility
You should screen every two years if you are aged 50 to 74.
Trans and gender diverse people can have a unique set of factors that may affect risk. Check your eligibility and ask your doctor about your personal risk factors and if you need screening.
Picture of Health is a partnership between BreastScreen Victoria and Thorne Harbour Health to encourage more LGBTI+ community members to have regular breast screens. LGBTI+ people are less likely to have had a breast screen, and we want to change that.
Meet our ambassadors
Our Picture of Health ambassadors Brenda, Ricki, Caroline and Deb share the importance of screening and urge others to check their eligibility.
