Early detection is key to successful diagnosis and treatment of breast and cervical cancer; and the health department encourages residents to know their risk during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Each year in the United States, about 264,000 women get breast cancer and 42,000 women die from the disease. Though not as common, about 1 out of every 100 breast cancers diagnosed in the United States is found in a man.
The Florida Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (FBCCEDP) offered by the Department of Health, can make it easier to get the breast and cervical cancer screenings doctors recommend.
The screenings are free or low cost if you meet program eligibility requirements. A clinical breast exam, mammogram, pap test and follow-up care for abnormal results are included in the program.More information on the FBCCEDP
