What other women’s health services are offered by Health PEI?

  • Pap Screening and Cervical Cancer Prevention – Regular pap tests can reduce your risk of cervical cancer. A pap test can detect changes in the cells of your cervix early. If you are 21 years of age or older and are sexually active, it is recommended to have a pap test every two years. 
  • Breast Cancer Screening – Regular breast screening can detect breast cancer at an early stage. A mammogram is recommended for individuals aged 40-75 who:
    • have never had breast cancer;
    • do not have symptoms such as a breast lump, puckered skin, rash or nipple discharge;
    • have not had a mammogram in the last 12 months;
    • do not have breast implants; or
    • have a parent or sibling with breast cancer.
    • How can I get screened?

      • Call 1-888-592-9888 to schedule a mammogram.
