Appendix I:
Recommendations Regarding Cancer Screening
By The American Cancer Society 1

Breast Cancer:

Women Ages 20-39 -

Women Ages 40 and older -

If you have a history of breast cancer in your family, discuss mammography screening guidelines and scheduling with your health care provider. Contact the American Cancer Society at 1-800-ACS-2345 or ask your doctor or nurse if you have questions about how to perform breast self-examination.

Colon & Rectal Cancer:

Women and Men ages 50 and older - follow one of the examination schedules below -

A digital rectal exam should be done at the same time as a sigmoidoscopy, colonoscopy, or double-contrast barium enema.

If you are at moderate or high risk for colorectal cancer, talk with a doctor about a different testing schedule.

1From Cancer Facts & Figures - 1998, American Cancer Society, p 31.

Prostate Cancer:

Men ages 50 and older with a life expectancy of at least 10 years -

The above schedule also is for younger men who are at high risk for prostate cancer, e.g. a strong familial predisposition (two or more first-degree relatives with prostate cancer), black race.

Cervical Cancer:

Women sexually active or ages 18 and older -

If three or more consecutive examinations are normal, the Pap test may be done less frequently; discuss this with a physician.

Endometrial Cancer:

Women at high risk for cancer of the uterus should have a sample of endometrial tisssue examined when menopause begins.

Cancer-Related Checkup:

A cancer-related checkup is recommended every 3 years for people ages 20-40 and every year for people age 40 and older. This exam should include health counseling and, depending on the person's age, might include examinations for cancers of the thyroid, oral cavity, skin, lymph nodes, testes, and ovaries, as well as for some nonmalignant diseases.


Appendix II:
New Jersey Breast And Cervical Cancer Control Initiative
(NJBCCCI)

The national Breast and Cervical Cancer Mortality Prevention Act of 1990 authorized the federal Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to implement a national program to ensure that all women who need them receive regular screenings for breast and cervical cancer with prompt follow-up if necessary. Accordingly, the CDC funds the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services to bring breast and cervical cancer screening services to underserved women, including older women, women with limited income, uninsured or underinsured women, and women of racial/ethnic minority groups.

The NJBCCCI, of the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services, has been screening women since January 1, 1996. The program began in 5 counties: Burlington, Camden, Mercer, Middlesex, and Morris. As of September 1, 1997, every county in the State had funded screening projects. The screening projects provide mammograms, clinical breast exams, instructions in breast self-exam, pelvic exams, and pap smears to eligible women. The NJBCCCI contracts with an agency in each of New Jersey's twenty-one counties to provide these services. The phone number of the program office in each county are listed below:

Atlantic County(609) 653-4624      Middlesex County(732) 521-1402
