BREASTSCREEN WA will bring one of its state-of-the-art mobile clinics to Kwinana’s Koorliny Arts Centre carpark from Monday to April 6.

BreastScreen WA recognised the closest permanent clinic to Kwinana is Rockingham, and for some women, travelling would be an issue.

To ease this barrier, BreastScreen WA will encourage eligible ladies to book in for their free screening mammogram.

BreastScreen WA’s medical director Liz Wylie said she encouraged women to have a free screening mammogram as early detection and treatment could save lives.

“By taking the time to have a regular screening mammogram every two years, women will increase their chances of detecting breast cancer at an early stage,” she said.

BreastScreen WA screens women 40 years and over, specifically targeting those aged 50 to 74 years with no breast symptoms.

Appointments for the Kwinana visit are now open.

To make a booking go to www.breast|screen.health.wa.gov.au or phone 13 20 50.
