Breast Cancer Screening
A mammogram, an X-ray of the breast, is the best way to detect breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat and before you begin to feel symptoms. Having regular mammograms may help reduce the risk of death from breast cancer. Learn more about Mammograms...
Females between the ages of 50-74 years old are recommended to get a mammogram every 2 years by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force.

Colorectal Cancer Screening
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.
