COVID-19 Change to BreastScreen Queensland service information

BreastScreen Queensland's Gold Coast service has recommenced routine breast screening, following a temporary suspension of screening. We understand some women may have concerns about attending a screening at this time. If this is you, please talk to your doctor, who knows you best, about whether breast screening at this time is right for you, based on your individual circumstances.

BreastScreen Queensland is an important early detection service for women, which reduces illness and death from breast cancer. The decision to recommence breast screening is to ensure women can access services as soon as possible, where it is safe to do so. The wellbeing of women and our staff is always our top priority. A range of strategies are being implemented to minimise and address risk from COVID-19 for women who attend a screening and our staff, including asking all clients to reschedule if they are feeling unwell or are required to self-quarantine or self-isolate due to COVID-19.

For more information call 13 20 50 or visit the website.

BreastScreen Queensland Gold Coast Service

BreastScreen Queensland provides free, high quality breast cancer screening and assessment services for women. 

Women aged between 50 and 74 years are recommended to attend for a regular breast screen every two years.  Women in their 40s or aged 75 and older are also eligible for a free breast screen. 

You can have a breast screen at either a permanent location or at our mobile unit. You do not need a doctor’s referral.

A breast screen, or screening mammogram, is an x-ray that can pick up very small changes in the breast tissue, before they can be felt or noticed. For women over 50, a breast screen is the most effective way to detect breast cancer in its early stages.

If you have a lump, nipple discharge or any new breast changes, please contact your doctor without delay.

Our services

  • Health promotion and education
  • Screening mammograms
  • Assessment of screen-detected abnormalities
  • Counselling
  • Reminders to invite women to return for rescreening.
