LOCAL women over 50 will have the
opportunity to access free breast cancer
screen procedures later this month, as a
mobile unit visits Gawler.
Over 16,000 new cases of breast cancer were
diagnosed in Australia during 2016, with just
over 15,900 women and 150 men impacted
by the illness.
BreastScreen SA general manager Jane
Burden said the most effective way to ensure

"Screening mammography is currently the
most effective tool for the early detection of
breast cancer in asymptomatic women aged
50 to 74," she said.
"A screening mammogram is currently the
only clinically proven way to detect breast

"Regular participation within the
BreastScreen program is known to prevent
deaths from breast cancer."

a specially trained female radiographer
taking two X-rays of each breast -- a top-to-
bottom image, and a side-to-side image,"
"A mammogram usually takes eight
minutes and the images are then sent to
BreastScreen SA's central State
Co-ordination Unit to be examined by at
least two specialist radiologists.
"Most women who attend BreastScreen SA
will receive their results via a letter, within
two weeks, stating that no signs of breast
cancer were found (and) they will then be
invited for their next breast screen in two
The mobile unit will be open at the Gawler
Sport and Community Centre car park from
Tuesday, January 24 until March 24.

Early detection, best protection

PEOPLE are being encouraged to have a think about
their new year financial resolutions, after recent
research revealed nearly 70 per cent of respondents
are concerned about their finances in 2017.
The research, commissioned by St.George, shows the
main reasons for concerns in 2017 are the Australian
economy (55 per cent), housing affordability (44 per
cent) and household debt level (42 per cent).
Saving is top of mind for Aussies in the new year,
with 34 per cent ranking it as their number-one
financial priority, followed by paying down debt
(25 per cent) and staying afloat (23 per cent).
The biggest financial challenges in 2017 for Aussies
are cutting back on discretionary spending
(39 per cent), getting personal debt under control
(29 per cent), maintaining a lifestyle during retirement
(28 per cent), and saving enough for a house deposit
(28 per cent).
