For cis and trans women
If you live in NSW, are 40 or older and are female identifying with breast tissue, you are eligible for a free mammogram with BreastScreen NSW every 2 years. If you are a cis woman aged 50-74, or a trans woman aged 50-74 and have been on hormones for 5+ years, it is recommended that you are screened every 2 years.
BreastScreen NSW does not offer mammograms to people who have breast symptoms. If you have noticed an unusual breast change, such as a lump or thickening of discharge from the nipple, you should see your doctor straight away – they will advise what to do next.

For trans masculine, non-binary & gender diverse people
For trans masc, non-binary & gender diverse people, we recommend talking to your doctor about your personal risks and whether you require regular screening. This is because risk of breast cancer can be impacted by multiple factors including the amount of breast tissue, hormone use, whether you have had your ovaries removed and your family history of breast and ovarian cancer.
