Be Breast Care Aware

Today 50 women in Australia will hear the words “you have breast cancer.”

It’s a shocking figure – and a shocking message for any woman to hear.  One in four Queensland women diagnosed with breast cancer will receive their treatment at Mater.

Every day, Mater's multi-disciplinary team supports these superwomen through the toughest challenge they will ever face.

We encourage you to be breast aware this Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Breast checks

Up to 50% of women diagnosed find their breast cancers themselves. This means self-examination and becoming familiar with your breasts is vital for you to recognise any changes – it’s the key to early detection.

This video explains how you can check your breasts.
