Ten Most Affordable Cancer Screening Centres in Kenya

By Virginia Mwangi / February 19, 2019




Breast and cervical cancer have been identified as the leading cause of cancer death amongst women and the only way to reduce the deaths is to ensure early detection. Cancer screening is, therefore, highly recommended for individuals, particularly those at higher risk for the disease, if they want to stand the best chance for a cure.

Cancer cases are mostly reported at an advanced stage documented to be at 80 percent when chances of survival are slimmer. It is advised that ladies self-exam their breasts every month and seek an examination by a health worker every year. Cervical and breast cancer do not have to claim so many lives if they are always detected early.

One of the major hindrances to early detection, other than lack of awareness and spread of myths is fear of the financial cost. There are a number of centers that offer cancer screening for free or at affordable prices and we list them for you in the spirit of fighting cancer and eradicating the myths.

  • Women for Cancer Early Detection & Treatment

The Women for Cancer Early Detection and Treatment organization provides awareness, educates, and offers cancer screening services to patients all over the country.

The Women for Cancer Early Detection and Treatment conducts cancer screening medical camps that integrate other Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD). They offer HPV DNA Testing, Pap smear for cervical cancer screening, clinical breast examinations, and health assessments for obesity, diabetes, hypertension and vision assessments and management.
