Don’t miss the BreastScreen bus

COMMUNITY members are reminded to take advantage of free breast screenings currently being offered in Glenorchy.

The BreastScreen Tasmania mobile screening unit ‘LUNA’ will be available for appointments until mid-December 2016.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in Tasmanian women and will affect one in eight women during their lifetime.

Although there is no way of preventing breast cancer, there are ways to make sure that people have a better chance at beating it.

This includes increased awareness, seeing a doctor about any unusual changes and using the free BreastScreen service.

The mobile unit is located at the front of the Glenorchy City Council building at 374 Main Road Glenorchy, with appointments available between 8am and 5pm.

All women in the target age group of 50 to 74-years are encouraged to attend and women in the broader age group of 40 to 49-years are also welcome.

For more information or to book an appointment, phone 132 050.
