How can I afford regular breast and cervical cancer screenings?

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) provides screening and diagnostic services in every state through the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program. This program offers an early breast and cervical cancer detection program for women who have low incomes or are uninsured and underserved. Services include clinical breast exams, mammograms, pap tests, surgical consultations, and referrals to treatment and diagnostic testing if a screening outcome is abnormal.

Contact your state Department of Health or the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program for specific information about the programs in your area.
