Cancer Awareness

The Comprehensive Cancer Control Program coordinates a region-wide (Site 13; Dawson, Fallon, McCone, Richland, Prairie, and Wibaux Counties) collaborative effort to implement the Montana Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan.

The Richland County Health Department has three programs dedicated to cancer awareness and prevention: The Montana Cancer Control Program, Cancer Screening Services, and the Cancer Coalition.


Montana Cancer Control Program (MCCP)
Comprehensive Cancer Control is broadly defined as (a coordinated approach to reduce the incidence, morbidity, and mortality of cancer through prevention, early detection, treatment, rehabilitation and palliation." The approach integrates multiple disciplines including administration, research, clinical services, evaluation, health education, program development, and public policy in an effort to address cancer prevention and control in Montana. It partners with the Screening Program and the Cancer Coalition to increase awareness of the need for cancer screening tests and the benefits of early detection and treatment.

Cancer Screening Services

The Cancer Screening Program supports comprehensive cancer control in Montana by providing ongoing quality screening services to Montana men and women and education in a manner that is appropriate, accessible, cost-effective and sensitive to the client’s needs.

Screening services include mammograms, clinical breast exams, Pap tests and pelvic exams for the early detection of breast and cervical cancers and colonoscopies and FOBT tests for the early detection of colorectal cancer. Diagnostic testing is also provided for the follow-up of abnormal screening tests. For information about low cost screenings for eligible clients call (406) 433-2207, or call the state hot-line toll-free at 1-888-803-9343.
