Cancer Screening

Purpose

The purpose of the Illinois Breast & Cervical Cancer Program is to provide screening and diagnostics for breast and cervical cancer for women who meet our income, insurance and age requirements. The program covers clinical breast exams, pelvic exams, pap smears, mammograms, and various other procedures when done in connection with screening for breast or cervical cancer.

If you are diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer through our screening program we will assist you in obtaining a medical card to pay for cancer treatment.
