The mobile screening service visits Cheltenham for the first time

Mobile screening service

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! 

Location:  
Cheltenham Library (carpark) 
12 Stanley Avenue

Book your appointment online or by calling 13 20 50. 

This service is supported by funding from the Australian Government under the South Eastern Melbourne PHN.
