Free breast cancer screening this October

Breast Cancer Awareness

Posted on Sep 18, 2018

Breast cancer is the most common cancer found in women worldwide. During the month of October, organizations around the globe unite for a common cause, breast cancer awareness. 

Free screenings for qualifying community members

To support early detection, KAUST Health is providing free screenings to qualifying community members this October.  

KAUST Health recommends that all women aged forty and over have a breast cancer screening every one to two years. To support this effort, KAUST Health is waiving the 26 SAR administration fee for KAUST-insured women aged forty and over during the month of October

Those who do not qualify for free screenings are still welcome to participate in the screening program, but copayments and consultation fees may apply, based on your insurance plan. 

Book your screening today

To book a breast cancer screening, please call 940 from a landline or 012 808 0940 from a mobile phone and mention this campaign.

If you have any questions about the breast cancer screening campaign, please email fatmah.hadadi@kaust.edu.sa for more information.
