BreastScreen Tasmania is part of BreastScreen Australia – a national breast screening program that aims to continue to reduce deaths from breast cancer through early detection of the disease.
BreastScreen Tasmania provides a free screening mammogram every two years to women between the age of 50 and 74 years throughout Tasmania. While women in the target age group are particularly encouraged to participate, all women over the age of 40 years are eligible for the program.
There are two permanent clinics:
- Level 4, 25 Argyle Street, Hobart (BreastScreen Hobart map)
- Queen Victoria Complex, 7 High Street, Launceston (BreastScreen Launceston map)
There are also two mobile units that visit rural and remote locations across the state. Each year, approximately 30,000 women have a breast screening mammogram through BreastScreen Tasmania.
