Breast Screening

Breast cancer screening participation rates among women aged 50-74 years (52.5%) in the Sydney North Health Network area are slightly lower than the NSW rate (52.8%).

The use of BreastScreen by Aboriginal women and those from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds has increased (43.8%) and is slightly ahead of the NSW average (42.5%). (2019 RBCO).

Screen-detected breast cancer is less likely to cause death than breast cancers diagnosed in women who have never been screened.
