The BreastScreen Victoria mobile screening van will be in Cheltenham for the first time from Monday, 21 March to Friday, 1 April 2022, offering free breast screens.
If you’re a woman* aged between 50 and 74, you should have a breast screen every two years. They are the best way to find breast cancer early—before there are symptoms and when treatment is most likely to succeed.
A breast screen can find cancer as small as a grain of rice, long before it can be seen or felt.
The van provides an opportunity to have a screen in a convenient location with friendly staff. COVID-19 safety measures will be in place to protect both the community and staff.
All breast screens are with a female radiographer in a safe and friendly environment and take 10 minutes. There’s no need for a doctor’s referral or Medicare card.
If you’re due for your regular breast screen and haven’t made an appointment yet, book today!
