October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is close to all our hearts as we all have had a friend, neighbour or relative who has had breast cancer. Mammograms are available for free every 2 years for women from 50 - 74 but women in their 40s and those 75 and older are also eligible to attend for a screening  mammogram. Book an appointment to discuss with your GP. 

Breast awareness is being familiar with the normal look and feel of your breasts, so that you can identify any unusual changes. Read more about how to check for breast cancer signs and symptoms here: https://url.nbcf.org.au/WHW22
