Cancer Screenings

Breast Cancer Screening

The American Cancer Society recommends annual mammograms for women beginning at the age of 40. We offer screening and diagnostic mammograms (including 3D Mammography) with expert follow-up care. Schedule yours today.

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.

Skin Cancer Screening

Regular skin self-exams are the best way to spot changes to moles, freckles and other skin marks between regular medical exams with your primary care doctor.
