Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (BCCP)

This program allows women who meet age, income, and insurance guidelines the opportunity to have a Pap test and pelvic exam, and a mammogram screening. It’s sponsored by the Indiana State Department of Health and is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, with additional support from Hancock Regional Hospital Foundation, for women who, due to budget restrictions, might not otherwise have these important tests.

Diagnostics

Every woman is different, with needs that will vary at different times in her life. That’s why we offer a full range of diagnostic tools to aid your team in making the most complete and accurate diagnosis. Capabilities include: Ultrasound Imaging A common diagnostic medical procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce dynamic images (sonograms) of organs, tissues, or blood flow inside the body. It can be used to treat many conditions critical to women’s health including cardiovascular disease, pancreatitis, and many menstrual disorders. Ultrasound imaging can help characterize abnormalities found during physical examination or mammography. Stereotactic Imaging In the event an abnormality is discovered, stereotactic imaging allows your treatment team to pinpoint exactly where the abnormality is located in three-dimensional space, in order to minimize damage to surrounding tissues while maximizing the precision and accuracy of your treatment. DEXA Scan (Bone Density Scan) A bone density scan is used to help your health care provider confirm a diagnosis of osteoporosis. The most common test method uses low-dose X-rays to scan the body.
