Q. I would like to get a cancer screening. I need help financially and where to find screenings.


There are many benefits to screening for cancer. Early detection is key to improving outcomes if a cancer is diagnosed. There are several recommended cancer screenings, including: breast, cervical, colon, lung, prostate, and skin, depending on an individual’s risk factors. It is important to ask your doctor about which screening is right for you. Many times, insurance companies will cover these recommended screenings if you are eligible to receive them. If someone is uninsured or underinsured, there may be options for assistance. Free or low cost screenings can be found in several ways.

  • First, ask your doctor if they have any services or programs in the community
  • The Department of Health provides free cancer screenings. Check your state’s location and program
  • The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), provides information on screening and access to care

Additionally, CancerCare offers a Time To Screen line at 855-537-2733 where you can talk to one of our specialists about screening information.
