Breastscreen unit coming to town
SPRINGSURE women aged between 50 and 69-years-old are being urged to take advantage of a free breast cancer screening at BreastScreen Queensland.
From Wednesday, May 4 to 11, a state of the art digital mobile unit will be at the Springsure Hospital Grounds on Woodbine St.
The unit gives women in the region access to a service that would otherwise require lengthy travel and expenses.
BreastScreen Queensland Health promotion officer Stephanie Bacon said it was essential for women to look after their health and have regular breatscreens.
“One in eight Queensland women will develop breast cancer at some stage in their life,” she said.
“Early detection could save your life.
“All women between 50 and 69-years-old are strongly encouraged to have a free breastscreen every two years.
“Women aged 40 to 49 and over 70 are also eligible to attend.”
Women do not require a doctor’s referral. Call BreastScreen Queensland on 132 050 to make an appointment.
