Lake Cumberland District Health Department - Services | Adults | Breast and Cervical Cancer

Early diagnosis of breast or cervical cancer offers women more treatment options and greatly reduces the risk of death.


Breast and cervical cancer screening services are available to women at each of our ten county health centers. 


Services may include:
  Annual Exam
• pap smears

• pelvic exams

• breast exam

• abnormal test result follow up and care

• counseling on treatment options




Routine periodic screening encourages early identification of precancerous conditions of the cervix and early stage diagnosis of cervical cancer. Most cervical cancers CAN be prevented with detection and early treatment of precancerous lesions. Monthly breast self-exams, annual clinical breast exam, and regular mammography screenings aid in the early diagnosis of breast cancer.


You may contact your local health department for more information.
