Montana Cancer Control Programs

The Comprehensive Cancer Control Program coordinates a statewide collaborative effort to implement the Montana Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan. Comprehensive Cancer Control is broadly defined as "a coordinated approach to reduce the incidence, morbidity and mortality of cancer through prevention, early detection, treatment, rehabilitation and palliation". This approach integrates multiple disciplines in a coordinated cooperative effort to address cancer prevention and control in Montana

The Cancer Screening Program supports comprehensive cancer control in Montana by providing ongoing quality screening services to Montana men and women and education in a manner that is appropriate, accessible, cost-effective and sensitive to the client's needs. Screening services include mammograms, clinical breast exams, Pap tests and pelvic exams for the early detection of breast and cervical cancers and colonoscopies and FOBT tests for the early detection of colorectal cancer. Diagnostic testing is also provided for the follow-up of abnormal screening tests.

Early detection is the best way to combat breast cancer and cervical cancer. Women who do not go for regular screenings are more likely to be diagnosed at an advanced stage of breast cancer or cervical cancer. If you put off your exam because you are low income or have no health insurance, call now.   

  •  Must be underinsured or have no health insurance and meet income guidelines.

"Breast Cancer is not a club you would choose to join, but if you are made to join you belong to a sisterhood forever that will always have a special bond. To apply for assistance all that is required is to have breast cancer. Each patient's case is treated individually and everyone who applies is eligible for assistance. Please do not think someone else needs it worse than you- everyone can use some sort of help. The organization is here to help." states Jan Nelson
