Cancer Center and KGH Offer Cancer Screening Clinic

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - The Tri-Cities Cancer Center and Kennewick General Hospital will offer another free breast and cervical cancer screening clinic.

Fifty uninsured or underinsured women between the ages of 18 and 64 can schedule appointments for a free screening to take place on Friday, May 17, from 1 to 4 PM at KGH's Medical Mall, located at 521 North Young Street in Kennewick.

Each screening appointment will take about 15 minutes. The TCCC will supply a cervical examination with a pap smear while Kennewick General Hospital will conduct mammograms for women over 40 years of age. 

To make an appointment, call (509) 737-3420 during normal business hours (9 to 5) on weekdays.

The free services are sponsored by KGH Foundation, TCCC, Three Rivers Pathology, Kennewick General Hospital, and Benton Franklin Fair & Rodeo's "Tough Enough to Wear Pink" Program in support of breast cancer awareness month.

The hospital encourages women over the age of 21 to have regular pap smears to screen for cervical cancer, and women over the age of 40 to have annual mammograms to screen for breast cancer.
