Breast and Cervical Cancer

Midland County Health Department is apart of the Michigan Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Navigation Program (BC3NP). This program is part of a nationwide effort to decrease breast and cervical cancer lost of life by offering free breast and cervical screening services, follow-up care, medical referral and cancer treatment to low income women. 

What Services Are Available Through the Program?

Screening Services
Through these local public health programs, women aged 21-64 can receive screening services such as: 
  • Pap smears (ages 21-64)
  • Screening mammograms (ages 40-64)
  • MRIs - based on client personal and family risk
Diagnostic Services 
If a breast and/or cervical abnormality is identified from the screening test/exam, the woman will be referred to community providers for follow-up. Over 75 diagnostic services are provided free of cost through the BC3NP. Some of these include:
  • Diagnostic mammograms
  • Ultrasounds
  • MRIs
  • Breast Biopsy
  • Colposcopy services
  • Colposcopy-directed biopsy services
  • Medical Consultations
Family Planning women enrolled in the BC3NP are eligible to receive cervical screening and diagnostic services.
Cancer Treatment
In the event of a diagnosis of breast or cervical cancer through the BC3NP, a woman may be eligible for Medicaid coverage. If eligible, Medicaid will pay for all of her medical expenses for as long as she is being treated for the cancer.

Not all breast lumps are cancerous. However, don't guess with your health, let's work together and get you screened. Yearly mammograms saves lives! Early detection, Saves lives!
