Mid-State begins offering Free Breast and Cervical Cancer Screenings

Oct 17, 2022 | Health Highlights, News

Mid-State is pleased to announce that appointments are now available in their Bristol and Plymouth offices for FREE breast and cervical cancer screenings to eligible patients as part of the New Hampshire Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (BCCP).

The program aims to reduce mortality rates through the early detection of breast and cervical cancer among NH residents. Regular screenings and follow-up care can help prevent, or more effectively treat, breast and cervical cancers. A screening test looks for signs of disease, such as cancer, before a person has symptoms. In its early stages, cancer is easier to treat.

Individuals aged 21-64 who are uninsured or have insurance that doesn’t pay for screening tests, or have a limited income, are invited to call the center to schedule an appointment. To confirm your eligibility and schedule an appointment for the free screening, please call Mid-State Health Center at 603-536-4000.

Mid-State Health Center is part of the Breast and Cervical Cancer Program, led by NH Healthy Lives and funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
