Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening


The Breast and Cervical Screening Program provides breast and cervical cancer screening to eligible women and diagnostic follow up tests for those with suspicious results. Women diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer or pre-cancerous conditions for these cancers are enrolled for treatment coverage through the state’s TennCare Program. All women for any service (screening, diagnosis, or treatment) must meet the general eligibility guidelines for the program.

Mission:

The mission of the program is to reach and serve lower income uninsured or underinsured women for these basic preventive health screening exams. “Cancer screening saves lives.”

Funding:

State and federal funding support the direct services of this program. All six Komen Affiliates in Tennessee also provide funding for direct services.
