Cancer Screenings

C.H. Chub O’Reilly Cancer Center offers a variety of recommended cancer screenings to help detect cancer at early stages. Cancer screening greatly improves odds of early detection, which can lead to less invasive and more successful treatment because the cancer has not had a chance to spread.

Breast Cancer Screening

The American Cancer Society recommends annual mammograms for women beginning at the age of 45. We offer screening and diagnostic mammograms (including 3D Mammography) with expert follow-up care. Visit our Mercy Breast Center to schedule yours today:

Mobile Mammograms:

You can visit us at one of our scheduled mobile mammogram bus locations, or arrange to have us visit your business, community organization or church group to provide fast and professional screenings on-site. The screening takes just 15 minutes and is performed by registered female technologists from Mercy Breast Center. 

 

Lung Cancer Screening

Lung cancer symptoms may not show up until an advanced stage. Screening with a low-dose CT (LDCT) can detect lung cancer earlier than ever which can improve chances of surviving. It’s recommended for people age 55-77 with risk factors for lung cancer.

Colon Cancer Screening

The American Cancer Society recommends annual colorectal cancer screening beginning at the age of 45. Mercy primary care doctors and Mercy colon specialists can help determine which screening test is best for you. Colorectal cancer can be hereditary and genetic testing is available.
