If you are over 50 and never had a breast screen before, or are due for your two-yearly screen, the Monash BreastScreen team is making it easy for you to book an appointment and ensure as many women as possible undergo this important screening.
Throughout November, the team have opened up free sessions specifically for Monash Health employees and volunteers.
You can book your screening by calling either Moorabbin Hospital on 9928 8760 or Casey Hospital on 9928 8761. Should you wish to get a screen closer to home, we encourage you to book online here: https://bookings.breastscreen.org.au/
What happens at a breast screen?
The Monash Health BreastScreen team did an insightful presentation and covered topics such as: how to check your breasts, what the breast cancer risk factors are, and the importance of early detection. Watch the presentation here.
