BreastScreen WA’s mammogram truck is rolling its way in Yarloop to offer residents free x-rays and raise awareness around one of the most common life threatening cancers. Women aged between 50 and 74 will be able to receive the free mammogram, which can detect up to 90 per cent of breast cancers. Recommended to be undertaken twice-yearly the mammograms take 20 minutes to complete and BreastScreen WA’s medical director Dr Elizabeth Wylie said screening mammography was the most effective method for early detection of breast cancer. “Screening every two years is vitally important to increase the chance of a breast cancer being detected when it is too small to feel or be noticed. BreastScreenWA’s free mammogram service will be available at the Yarloop Community Resource Centre from June 20 to June 22.
