Regular screening is the best way for a woman to lower her risk of dying from breast or cervical cancer.
See, Test & Treat® is a free breast and cervical cancer screening program for women in need. The program is funded by donations to the CAP Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the College of American Pathologists (CAP).
Dedicated CAP member pathologists, together with a team of health care professionals, donate their time and expertise to deliver same day screening, results and follow-up care in a dignified setting at no cost to the women served. Women are seen, tested, and treated in one visit—removing significant barriers to preventive and follow-up care, such as arranging childcare or additional time off work.
At a See, Test & Treat program, volunteer pathologists interact directly with patients in need while providing essential cancer screening tests and follow-up treatment. Women receive a pelvic exam, along with a Pap test to screen for cervical cancer and a mammogram for early detection of breast cancer. A pathologist is on site to provide counsel, diagnoses, and interpretation of the results from earlier or follow-up biopsies, including fine-needle aspirations or colposcopies.
Through the generous giving of CAP Foundation supporters, See, Test & Treat has provided services to countless uninsured and underserved women since its inception. And the program continues to grow.
Health care providers, advocacy groups, and pathologists interested in learning more or hosting an event in these or other locations, please email the Foundation: CAPFdn@cap.org or phone 800-323-4040 ext. 7846.
