BreastScreen Victoria encourages women in Pakenham and surrounds not to delay two-yearly breast screen

Pakenham’s first permanent BreastScreen clinic opened in February, replacing a two-yearly visit by the program’s mobile screening van.

While this new fixed clinic ensures that breast screening is available to local people year-round, a portion of the community have not returned for this important health check since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.

A breast screen is recommended for all women and eligible trans and gender diverse people every two years, between the ages of 50-74. They are the best way to find cancer early-before symptoms present and when treatment is most likely to be successful.

A breast screen can find cancer as small as a grain of rice, long before it can be seen or felt.

Pakenham BreastScreen is fitted with modern facilities and state-of-the-art imaging technology. The friendly staff are trained to provide a quick and easy screening experience in under 10 minutes. There’s no need for a doctor’s referral or Medicare card.

The clinic is located at 20 Main Street, Pakenham 3810. Appointments at the Pakenham clinic can be made online at or by calling 13 20 50.

* Trans and gender diverse people can have a unique set of factors that may affect risk. People can check their eligibility at
