Breast screening

The breast screening programme in Queensland targets women between the ages of 50-74. However, women over the age of 40 and women over 75 are eligible to attend Breast Screen Queensland.  There is no need to have a referral and Breast Screen Queensland can be contacted on ph: 132050.  Once you are registered with Breast Screen Queensland they will send you a reminder once every 2 years to go for repeat mammograms.

For quality breast screening in Broadbeach or Gold Coast-wide, be sure to get in contact with our friendly team.

Family History of Breast Disease

There are some hereditary genes that are associated with a high incidence of breast cancer. If you have a family history of breast cancer, please come and discuss this with us. In most instances, it is unlikely to be a genetic cause, but with strong family history of breast disease, testing may be required. Gold Coast Women’s Health can provide referrals to genetic counsellors and breast specialists for further discussion regarding this.

Concern over Finding a Lump

In a situation where you may have detected a lump or thickening, we will perform a physical examination and arrange timely investigations and appropriate referrals.  Many lumps are benign (not cancer), but it is important to obtain an accurate diagnosis as soon as possible, to be sure a cancer is not missed.

Breast awareness

At Gold Coast Women's Health, we encourage our patients to be breast aware. This means knowing what is normal for you and telling your doctor if you notice a change in your breasts. There is no right or wrong way to check your breasts for any changes. The best way to notice a change is to look at and feel your breasts regularly - the ideal time is when you are in the shower or bath. Be aware that awareness should extend to your armpits as well as breast tissue. The McGrath Foundation has lots of information about what is normal in terms of breast development and how to be breast aware. There is also an app to download.
