Screening

The Australian Government's Cancer Screen website provides links to various different screening organisations including:

  • BreastScreen Australia which aims to reduce mortality and morbidity from breast cancer by actively recruiting and screening women aged 50-74 years for early detection of the disease. 
  • The National Cervical Screening Program aims to reduce incidence and death from cervical cancer, in a cost-effective manner, through a more organised approach to cervical screening. 
  • The National Bowel Cancer Screening Program aims to reduce the incidence and death from bowel cancer by offering people turning 50, 55, 60 and 65 years of age screening with a faecal occult blood test in the privacy of their own home. Visit www.cancerscreening.gov.au for more information.
