BreastScreen bus coming to town
THE free BreastScreen Queensland mobile screening service is visiting Cooroy from Monday through to November 7.

BreastScreen Queensland strongly encourages women aged 50 to 74 to have a breast screen every two years.
The service is also provided free to women aged 40 to 49 and over 75.
A breast screen is the most effective method of detecting breast cancer at an early stage even before a lump can be seen or felt.
This is important because finding breast cancer at an early stage gives a women the best possible chance for successful treatment and well being.

Doctor’s referrals are not required.
