Breast and Cervical Health

Breast, Cervical and Colon Cancer Screening Program

Pacific County Public Health and Human Services Department offers the Breast, Cervical and Colon Cancer Screening program to women. If you are male and are interested in more information please call 1-800-992-1817.

Early Detection is the Best Protection!

Early detection is the best way to prevent breast, cervical, and colon cancer. Low-income people are less likely to receive cancer screening, due to costs, so are more likely to find cancers at later stages. This program provides free access to screening and treatment services to help reduce deaths.

  • Women between 40 and 64 years.*

  • Ages 50 and older.
