BreastScreen NSW provides screening mammograms and associated assessment services via a state-wide network of fixed and mobile sites. Currently there are 19 fixed screening and assessment sites in NSW.This site provides assessment services only.The aim of BreastScreen NSW is to detect breast cancer early, before it has a chance to spread. This is important because women with breast cancer can have a 97% survival rate if they are diagnosed early with breast cancer and when it is localised. Unfortunately once the cancer starts to spread the survival reduces to 85% for regional spread and 40% for distant metastases. Therefore, early detection is vital.Women 50 to 69 actively recruited to the program via an invitation to make an appointment with BreastScreen NSW when they turn 50 years of age. Once a women aged 50 years or older joins the program they will be sent reminders every two years until they are 69 years of age. Although women aged 40 to 49 years or over 70 years they are eligible for free screening mammograms they will not be sent reminders.The Electoral Commissioner has granted BreastScreen NSW permission to use the Electoral Roll to identify women in the 50 to 69 age group.
