20 minutes every two years could save your life

Did you know that one in eight women in NSW will develop breast cancer in their lifetime? Approximately 90% of them will have no history of breast cancer.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. To celebrate, the new BreastScreen clinic in Campsie is giving ladies a beautiful pink scarf when they attend the clinic throughout the months of October and November.

BreastScreen’s new site in the Campsie Centre offers appointments from 8.45 am – 4 pm on weekdays. A free Cantonese and Mandarin speaking interpreter is available all day every Tuesday to assist with forms and answer any questions about the mammography process. Bookings are recommended (call 13 20 50), however women can drop in for assistance or to make an appointment.

The Campsie clinic is also home to Australia’s first SensorySuite; focus on the sounds, sights, and smells of a waterfall, tropical garden or the seaside as you have your mammogram.
