The mobile screening units provide a biennial screening service to rural and remote areas and operate across 44 different locations in Far North Queensland and the Torres Strait. To view the mobile schedule please visit BreastScreen Queensland.

The BreastScreen Queensland Program is a population-based, public health program that offers free breast cancer screening and follow-up assessment services for women aged 50 to 74 years. This is the age group where research shows screening to be most beneficial. Women aged 40 to 49 years and 75 years and older can also attend if they choose.

All BreastScreen Queensland Services are now fully equipped with state-of-the-art digital mammography technology.
