Mobile breast screening services visit outer metropolitan areas and country towns every two years. Some towns are visited annually.

  • Please bring your Medicare card with you to your appointment.
  • Women whose breasts become tender before their periods find it more comfortable to have a mammogram during or just after a period.
  • If you’ve had a previous mammogram elsewhere, please bring these images with you.
  • Please don’t wear talcum powder or deodorant on the day of your appointment. It may show on the X-ray picture.
  • Please be aware you will be reading information and signing a consent form at the appointment.

Get to know your breasts and what is normal for you. Look in the mirror at your breasts and feel your breasts from time to time.

If you notice any unusual changes in your breasts such as lumps, nipple discharge, or persistent new breast pain, even if your last screening mammogram was normal, please see your GP promptly.

Ask your GP to check your breasts regularly.
