Florida Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women. Cervical cancer is highly preventable in most Western countries because of preventative care. Taking preventative measures on a regular basis can lower your risk of dying from breast cancer. The Breast & Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program at the Florida Department of Health in Seminole County is here to educate and raise awareness about breast and cervical cancer through community education and outreach, early detection, and treatment, and to reduce the number of deaths from breast and cervical cancer.
