Cancer Screening

 

Early diagnosis of breast or cervical cancer offers women more treatment options and greatly reduces the risk of death.


We offer cancer screening services to income eligible women age 21 and older without a third party payer source. Services may include pap smears, pelvic exams, breast exam, and to determine need for further follow up such as a mammogram or Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure (LEEP).


Monthly breast self-exams, annual clinical breast exam, and regular mammography screenings aid in the early diagnosis of breast cancer.


Routine periodic screening encourages early identification of precancerous conditions of the cervix and early stage diagnosis of cervical cancer. Most cervical cancers CAN be prevented with detection and early treatment of precancerous lesions.


These services are available, with an appointment, in our five county health departments. Please contact the local health department for more information.
