BreastScreen van comes to Docklands

BreastScreen van comes to Docklands Image

From February 4 to 22, women over the age of 40 can get free breast screens – the best way to find cancer early and save lives.

BreastScreen Victoria’s hot pink van, known as "Marjorie", is coming to Docklands to give free breast screens to women who work and live in the area.

Women over 40 are eligible for free breast screens and those aged between 50 and 74 should have a screen every two years. They are the best way to find breast cancer early, before there are symptoms and when treatment is most successful.

A breast screen can find cancer as small as a grain of rice, long before a woman or her doctor can see or feel anything.

All breast screens are with a female radiographer, in a friendly and safe environment. They don’t need a doctor’s referral or Medicare card and only take 10 minutes.

BreastScreen Victoria CEO Vicki Pridmore encouraged women to book in.

“Marjorie is one of our two mobile screening service vans which travel the state throughout the year. This visit to Docklands has been organised to make sure women can access a potentially life-saving mammogram,” Ms Pridmore said.

The van will be at 800 Bourke St (outside NAB) from February 4 to 22.

Appointments can be made online at breastscreen.org.au or by calling 13 20 50.
