Health Screenings

Health Screenings Can Save Your Life

Protect yourself today for a healthy tomorrow

We’ve all heard how eating right and being active are the secrets to a long, healthy life. These are important. But there’s more you can do to stop disease. Finding health problems early gives you more treatment choices or a cure. That’s where health screenings come in. 


Health screenings are vital for all people, from newborns to seniors. These tests are designed to look for signs that you may be at risk for certain conditions. They help spot health problems at an early stage, even if you do not have symptoms. 

Types of cancer screenings

Breast Cancer

A mammogram is a breast X-ray. It can spot breast cancer early when it’s most treatable and when your chance of a cure is much higher. Both women and men can get breast cancer and should get screened every two years, starting at age 50. Those who are at high risk or would like to start screening at an earlier age can talk to their doctor about starting screening at age 40.

Cervical Cancer (Pap Smear) 

The Pap test, also known as a pap smear, can detect not normal cells on your cervix early enough so they can be treated before cancer has a chance to grow. The screening is recommended for women ages 21-65 every 3-5 years, depending on the risk and type of screening. To schedule a screening, talk to your doctor. 

Colorectal Cancer

Colorectal cancer affects the colon and the rectum. Screening can find and remove growths in these areas before they turn into cancer. Everyone ages 50-75 should get screened for colorectal cancer every 1-10 years, depending on risk and type of test used. Talk with your doctor about which test is the best for you.

Lung Cancer

Screening for lung cancer with imaging (CT scan) in people who smoke or who have quit within the past 15 years, can help find cancer at an early stage. Catching it early keeps you healthy. A yearly screening is recommended for anyone ages 50-80 who smokes cigarettes or has quit smoking in the last 15 years. 


If you’re due for a screening, call your doctor today to schedule your appointment. Don’t wait. Take charge of your health!
