Breast & Cervical Cancer Screening Program

The goal of the Connecticut Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program is to increase early breast and cervical cancer screening in women age 19 to 64, especially if they are un-insured or underinsured.

You may qualify for free breast and cervical cancer screenings at the Cancer Institute if:

  • You are 40 to 64 years old (mammogram) or 21 to 64 years old (clinical breast exam and Pap test)
  • You are 35 to 39 years old with symptoms and/or specific risk factors for breast cancer
  • You have limited income and no health insurance
  • You have health insurance that excludes routine Pap tests and/or mammograms
  • You have an insurance deductible of $1,000 or more
  • You have no Medicare Part B

What to Expect

The Program offers many breast cancer screening and diagnostic services for free, including office visits, screening and diagnostic mammograms, breast biopsies, breast ultrasounds, fine needle aspirations and clinical breast exams.
