Why is breast screening important?

  • Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women in NSW
  • 1 in 7 women in NSW will be diagnosed with breast cancer by age 85
  • Age and being female are the strongest risk factors for developing breast cancer
  • 9 out of 10 women diagnosed with breast cancer do not have a family history
  • A mammogram can pick up cancers that cannot be seen or felt
  • A mammogram every two years takes just 20 minutes and it could save your life
