Breast Cancer Awareness 2019


Breast Cancer remains the most common cancer
among Australian women.

89 out every 100 women diagnosed with invasive breast cancer
now surviving five or more years beyond diagnosis.

Tests to diagnose breast cancer may include:

MammogramA mammogram is an X-ray that can find changes that are too small to be felt during physical examination.

UltrasoundIf a mammogram picks up breast changes you may have an ultrasound. This is a painless scan using sound-waves to make a picture of your breast.

BiopsyA doctor removes some of the breast tissue for examination under a microscope.

Other scans – If cancer is detected in your breast, you may have other scans to see if the cancer has spread to other parts of your body; such as a CT scan or MRI scan.
*Those with dense breast tissue or augmentation can now also benefit from a 3D mammogram improving detection rates.
