Florida Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program
When was your last pap smear and mammogram?
Early detection is the key to successful diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer and cervical cancer. You may receive no-cost or low-cost exams through a federal program, including:
clinical breast exam
follow-up care for abnormal results
Women screened through the program and diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer receive treatment.
For more information, please call the Florida Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Screen Program at the Florida Department of Health at 800-226-6110.
