Free breast screening mammograms are provided to eligible women aged 45-69 by Breast Screen Aotearoa every 2 years. For Cromwell patients this is done in Alexandra or Frankton.
New Zealand wide, they diagnose 200 cases of breast cancer every 6 weeks. Another 200 women will find their own breast cancer every 6 weeks.
No breast screening mammograms have been available over the lockdown, however the programme has now restarted – if you are overdue a screening mammogram please contact Breast Screen Aotearoa on 0800 270 200 if they have not contacted you by phone.
If you have noticed a breast lump please make an appointment with your doctor at CMC.
