Cancer Screenings and Diagnostic Services
To make an appointment for a cancer screening or early detection services at Community, please call 800-777-7775 to be referred.
Free Oral Cancer Screenings
Available August 22 at Community Cancer Center South. The screening is quick and painless and could save a life, especially for those patients who are at higher risk of developing head and neck cancer. Risk factors include: heavy alcohol/tobacco use, exposure to HPV, males over age 55.
Colonoscopy is the gold standard for screening for colon and rectal cancer, especially if you are at high risk due to personal factors or family history. If you are over the age of 50, schedule a colonoscopy with one of our gastroenterologists by calling 800-777-7775.
Concerned you may be at higher risk for certain types of cancers due to family history? Commonly inherited cancers include breast, colorectal and ovarian cancer, among others. Our genetic counselors can answer your questions and help you decide if testing is right for you and your family.
Lung Cancer Screenings
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. Low-dose CT lung screening will show the lung tissue in high diagnostic detail to help you understand your risk for lung cancer. USPSTF guidelines and Medicare eligibility criteria recommend annual lung screenings for individuals ages 55 to 77 with a tobacco smoking history of at least 30 pack years. If you have stopped smoking, you must have quit within the last 15 years. You must also have met with your physician to discuss your eligibility, and the physician must order the CT lung screening.
Mammography and Breast Screenings
Community Breast Care’s accredited and FDA-certified breast screening centers offer comprehensive breast diagnostic services, including screening and diagnostic digital mammography, breast ultrasound, breast MRI, fine needle and ultrasound-guided cyst aspiration, ultrasound-guided core biopsy, stereotactic core biopsy and ductography. All tests are conducted by nationally certified breast technologists and interpreted by board-certified radiologists.
If you have symptoms of prostate cancer, visit your physician or call 800-777-7775 to have a physical exam and a PSA screening blood test to rule out other causes of your symptoms.
