BreastScreen Queensland is the state program of BreastScreen Australia.
We’ve been providing Queensland women with free, quality breast screening and assessment services since 1991.
What is a breast screen?
A breast screen uses a special machine to look for very small cancers in breasts that can’t be seen or felt by a woman or her doctor. A breast screen is also called a mammogram. During a breast screen a machine will take at least 2 x-rays of each breast – one from the top and one from the side. These pictures will be read by at least 2 doctors who are specially trained to look for breast cancers on x-ray pictures.
