Corryong and Tallangatta women have been offered free breast screens.
BreastScreen Victoria's mobile van, 'Marjorie', has returned to the North East to run the service, with women aged between 50 and 74 asked to be screened if they haven't already done so in the past two years.
Screening is the best way to find breast cancer early and when treatment is most likely to be successful.
All breast screens are with a female radiographer, don't require a doctor's referral or Medicare card and take just 10 minutes.

The van is operating with COVID-19 safety measures in place, with all clients asked to wear a face mask.
BreastScreen Victoria CEO Terri Smith has encouraged those eligible aged 50 to 74 from Corryong, Tallangatta and surrounds to take advantage of the van's visit.
"Marjorie is one of our two mobile screening service vans which travel the state throughout the year. This visit to Corryong and Tallangatta has been organised to make sure women in this part of Victoria have access to a potentially life-saving mammogram," Ms Smith said.
"The vans use the highest quality digital radiography machines to ensure that women receive the best service, regardless of their location."
The van is at Corryong at 76 Hanson Street next to the Towong Shire Council offices and Elyne Mitchell Library until Friday, December 4.
It will then move to Tallangatta from Monday, December 7 to Friday, December 18, in a new location opposite the Towong Shire Council building at 32 Towong Street.
