Cancer Screening

We offer evidence based cancer screening

Screening tests look for cancer before a person has any signs or symptoms. Regular screenings can catch some cancers early, when they’re small, have not spread, and are easier to treat.

More about screening tests


Colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, and high-sensitivity fecal occult blood tests (FOBTs)

Colonoscopy and sigmoidoscopy also help prevent colorectal cancer because they can detect abnormal colon growths (polyps) that can be removed before they develop into cancer. Expert groups generally recommend that people who are at average risk for colorectal cancer have screening at ages 50 through 75.

  • Mammography 

    This method to screen for breast cancer has been shown to reduce mortality from the disease among women ages 40 to 74, especially those age 50 or older.

  • Pap test and human papillomavirus (HPV) testingThese tests reduce the incidence of cervical cancer because they allow abnormal cells to be identified and treated before they become cancer. They also reduce deaths from cervical cancer. Testing is generally recommended to begin at age 21 and to end at age 65, as long as recent results have been normal.
  • Alpha-Fetoprotein 

    This test is sometimes used, along with ultrasound of the liver, to try to detect liver cancer early in people at high risk of the disease.

  • Clinical breast exams and regular breast self-examsRoutine examination of the breasts by health care providers or by women themselves has not been shown to reduce deaths from breast cancer. However, if a woman or her health care provider notices a lump or other unusual change in the breast, it is important to get it checked out.
  • PSA This blood test, which is often done along with a digital rectal exam, is able to detect prostate cancer at an early stage. However, expert groups no longer recommend routine PSA testing for most men because studies have shown that it has little or no effect on prostate cancer deaths and leads to overdiagnosis and overtreatment.
  • Transvaginal ultrasound 

    This imaging test, which can create pictures of a woman’s ovaries and uterus, is sometimes used in women who are at increased risk of ovarian cancer (because they carry a harmful BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation) or of endometrial cancer (because they have a condition called Lynch syndrome).

 

Making Decisions About Cancer Treatment

After a cancer diagnosis, patients and their families have to make a number of decisions about cancer treatment. These decisions are complicated by feelings of anxiety, unfamiliar words, statistics, and a sense of urgency. However, unless the situation is extremely urgent, take time to research your options, ask questions, and talk with family or a trusted friend.

 
Decisions about cancer treatment are personal, and you need to feel comfortable with your choices. But, many people don’t know where to start. Here are some but important, steps you can take as you start the decision-making process.
