Any woman can get breast cancer. You do not have to come from a family with a history of breast cancer to be at risk. In an effort to increase early detection of breast cancer, the Public Health Department offers breast examinations and patient education. Based on the exam, the practitioner may refer patients for mammograms or additional diagnostic services. Uninsured or underinsured women may be eligible for services under the Breast Cancer Early Detection Program. | Other Resources
