Breast Cancer Screening
Females between the ages of 50-74 years old
One in eight women will develop breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.It’s the most common cancer in women and the second leading cause ofcancer death among women. Getting regular mammograms is the best way to catch cancer early, before symptoms are present and when the disease is easiest to treat.

Colorectal Cancer Screening
Everyone starting at the age of 50 years.
Regular screenings can help find pre-cancerous polyps in the colon so they can be removed before they develop into cancer. Screenings can also find cancer early when it is easier to treat. Learn more about Colorectal Cancer Screenings....
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends colorectal cancer screening starting at the age of 50 years.
- Colonoscopy is an exam that inserts a tiny video camera attached to a long and flexible tube into the rectum and colon to view any changes or abnormalities. This type of colorectal cancer screening is good for up to 10 years unless otherwise noted by your doctor.
- FOBT (fecal occult blood test) is a non-invasive test used to check stool samples for hidden blood. Occult blood in the stool may indicate colon cancer or polyps in the colon or rectum, though not all cancers or polyps bleed. Therefore, this type of colorectal cancer screening is good for only one year.
Educate yourself about Colorectal Cancer.
If you have received a notice regarding any preventive screenings from Hill Physicians, contact one of our Health Navigators above to help with scheduling.
Please contact one of our Health Navigators to schedule your cancer screening appointment or request a FOBT kit.
