Breast health & awareness

Early detection of breast cancer while it is still small and confined to the breast provides the best chance of effective treatment and can boost your chances of surviving breast cancer. Many people have no signs or symptoms. However, some people do and there are things you can look out for.

Being 'breast aware' means becoming familiar with the normal look and feel of your breasts and reporting any unusual breast changes to your doctor as soon as possible.

Breast Screen Australia’s national screening mammography program for women aged 50-74 years in asymptomatic people aims to detect breast cancer early.
