Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, except for skin cancers. Routine mammograms and breast exams can often detect cancer early, when it can be most successfully treated.
Cervical cancer is also treatable if detected early. Often, there are no symptoms, so it is important for women to get screened regularly.
Through the Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (IBCCP), eligible women can receive, at no charge to them, the following services:
All uninsured women between the ages of 40 and 64 for free breast cancer screenings and all uninsured women between 35 and 64 for free cervical cancer screenings.
Women with the following qualifications may also be eligible:
Women who have already been diagnosed with breast and/or cervical cancer may also receive free or low-cost treatment through this program.
