Screening Programs

CancerCare Manitoba operates three provincial, population-based, organized screening programs: BreastCheck, CervixCheck, and ColonCheck.

BreastCheck provides screening mammography to women 50 years of age and older. The BreastCheck registry includes information on mammography results, follow-up tests, and final diagnoses.

CervixCheck operates a registry of all Pap test results, coloposcopy, and biopsy procedures, and HPV vaccination for women 18 to 69 years of age.

ColonCheck provides fecal occult blood tests to men and women 50 to 74 years of age. The ColonCheck registry includes the results of the FOBT, follow-up tests (colonoscopy), and final diagnoses. The programs also provide health promotion and public education for the public and health care professionals.
