Early Cancer Detection for Women

Beliefs and emotions connected with women's health issues have great impact on how women care for themselves and access health services. Breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer screening aid in protecting our health through early detection.

Finding breast cancer early allows for earlier treatment and better outcomes. The Pap test finds changes in the cells of the cervix long before they are even cancerous. The colorectal Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT) can detect any bleeding from a polyp or cancer in the large bowel.

Don't let fear or embarrassment prevent you or a woman you know from taking the best possible care of our most precious resource, our health. Talk to your doctor about a breast exam and Pap test.
