Women’s Health | Free Breast Cancer Screening for Ages 50-74

Are you aged between 50-74? Are you up to date with your breast cancer screening?

If the answer is no to the above then it’s time to get screening.

According to the Australian Institute of Health & Welfare, only half of women in the target age group are taking up their two yearly free mammograms to test for breast cancer.

Breast screening is important for the early detection of breast cancer. The earlier breast cancer is detected the sooner it can be treated with more favourable outcomes. Breast screening also helps to provide women with reassurance following a normal result.

Breast screening is performed using a machine called a mammogram that pushes pressure onto the breasts whilst images are taken. This usually lasts for 10 seconds at a time.

These images are then analysed by a specialist doctor and the results are sent to yourself and your GP. You will then be put on a register to remind you to return every 2 years until the age of 74.

If you have any concerns regarding breast cancer or would like advice on how to check your breasts come and see me in clinic today.

Did you know that the traditional PAP smear is changing in Australia?

It’s being replaced with a new Cervical Screening Programme from 1st December 2017.

What is the Cervical Screening Programme?

This is a test that is quick and simple to check the health of your cervix (neck of the womb). It is done by your health care provider.

What is different about the new programme?

The cervical screen is done in the same way as the traditional PAP smear so it will not feel any different to you.

The new test is more effective at detecting the human papilloma virus (HPV) that causes cervical abnormalities, at an earlier stage.

Who needs testing?

If you’re a woman aged between 25-74 years of age and have ever been sexually active the test is open for you every 5 years.

When shall I have a cervical screening test?

Your first test will be due at 25 years of age or two years after your last PAP test. If your result is normal you will be due in five years for your next test.

How common is Cervical Cancer?

Cervical cancer is rare. In Australia every year around 800 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer. However most cervical cancer is preventable with regular screening.

Feel free to drop by my clinic if you have any further questions.
