Isolation and lockdowns have been disruptive for many women’s health routines, but Sue encourages women not to delay their mammograms.
“BreastScreen Victoria is open, and I urge you not to put off your screening,” she says. “We’re a program for those with no symptoms, so if you notice any changes in your breast or have any symptoms, please contact your GP without delay.
“It’s important to remember this Women’s Health Week that health is not just about your physical self, but also about your wellbeing. Please look after yourself both physically and mentally.”
BreastScreen Victoria is a Women’s Health Week community partner.
BreastScreen Victoria has joined with Jean Hailes for Women’s Health as a community partner to help spread the campaign message to ‘check in on your health’, reminding women to keep up to date with regular health checks.
Regular breast screens are an essential part of routine wellbeing, and are the best way to find breast cancer early, before any symptoms are noticed and when treatment is likely to be most successful.
