Breast cancer

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women, except for skin cancer. Breast cancer caught early is often treatable. Mammograms are the best way to find cancer early, when it is easier to treat and before it can be felt.

If you are 40 or older, talk to your doctor or healthcare provider about getting screened.

It is easy to get screened, and it takes very little time. The Utah Cancer Control Program (UCCP) offers free mammograms to women who qualify.

Cervical cancer

Thanks to more women getting screened for cervical cancer, the number of women in the U.S. who get, or die from, cervical cancer has gone down over the years.

Cervical cancer is highly treatable if it is caught early. A Pap test can find abnormal cells before they turn into cancer.

Hereditary cancers

Everyone is at risk for cancer, but if you have had cancer, or have a family history of cancers, you may be at a higher risk than the general public.


Every year in the U.S., 27,000 people get cancer caused by HPV. That is 1 person every 20 minutes of every day, all year long.

Almost all cases of cervical cancer are caused by HPV. The HPV vaccine protects against 6 types of cancer.

Other cancers

Cancer is a term for diseases in which abnormal cells divide without control and can invade other tissues. Cancer cells can spread through the blood and lymph systems. There are more than 100 types of cancer.
