Breast screening and procedures

Finding breast cancer when it is small improves the chances of treatment being successful. You can help find breast cancer by being ‘breast aware’. This includes knowing what is normal for your breasts and knowing what changes to look and feel for. Also, make sure you have your mammograms. In New Zealand, women aged 45 to 69 are eligible to have a free mammogram every two years with BreastScreen Aotearoa 0800 270 200.
