Cancer Screening

Everyone is at risk for developing cancer. Certain cancers are preventable or can be screened for and detected early.
Education and information about how you can prevent and control cancer is essential to your overall health.

You will be asked some simple questions that generally assess your risk for colorectal, lung and skin cancer. If you are female you will answer questions for breast and cervical cancer risk and if you are male questions about prostate cancer risk can be completed. This tool should not be used for diagnostic purposes. Please discuss any health concerns with your physician.
