These life-saving screenings are performed at Comanche County Medical Center.

Free mammograms are provided for women without insurance and those who qualify. Mammograms are for women age 40 and over who haven’t had a mammogram in a year or more. To qualify and to schedule an appointment, call 800-405-7739.

A lung cancer screening is recommended for adults who are: 55 to 74 years old, current smokers or former smokers who quit within the past 15 years, and generally in good health. Medicare and most insurance companies cover a yearly screening for those who meet the criteria; financial assistance is available for those who qualify. A physician referral is needed for the program. For more information, call 800-405-7739.
