Breast and cervical cancer are two cancers of great concern to
many women. Both can be detected early with current screening
methods. Finding abnormal cells before they become cancerous can
actually prevent cervical cancer. The Ohio Department of
Health, through funding by the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention, has a Breast and Cervical Cancer Project (BCCP).
The project provides education, screening, rescreening,
diagnostics and case management related to breast and cervical
cancer. Between March of 1994 and March 2006, 49,558 women have
been enrolled in, and screened by, the Ohio BCCP.
