Gynecologic and breast cancer screening

Our OB-GYNs perform gynecologic cancer screening in the office and may refer you to one of our Kettering Health Breast Centers for a breast cancer screening or a full cancer risk assessment.
Financial assistance for women’s health
Women who are uninsured or underinsured can receive a free breast cancer screening through Kettering Medical Center Foundation’s Women’s Wellness Fund. You may qualify for additional financial support through one of our financial aid programs.
