Breast and Cervical Cancer

The Barry-Eaton District Health Department provides breast and cervical cancer screening through the Michigan Breast and Cervical Cancer Control and Navigation Program (BCCCNP). We work with local doctors and specialists to coordinate screening tests and follow up care as needed.

You may qualify for life-saving cancer screening services, including diagnostics and cancer treatment if needed. If you have an abnormal Mammogram or Pap test, and your insurance doesn't completely pay for additional tests, we can help! The BCCCNP can pay for your follow-up care or work with your insurance to help pay for the services you need.

  • The best way to survive cancer is to find it early, when it is most easily treated.
  • Every year, more than 1,300 Michigan women die from breast cancer and 100 women die from cervical cancer.
  • Although all women are at risk to develop breast cancer, this risk increases as a woman gets older.
  • There are simple tests to screen for both breast and cervical cancer.
  • If you are 40 years of age or older, you should get a mammogram (a type of breast X-ray) and a breast exam by a health professional every one to two years.
