Breast cancer screening

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women, other than skin cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, about one in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer during their lifetime. Screening mammograms can find cancer early, when treatment is most effective.

Cervical cancer screening

Cervical cancer screening is important because women in the early stages of cervical cancer usually do not show any signs of the disease. Cervical cancer can be found early by having regular screening with a Pap test. With early detection and treatment, the cervical cancer cure rate is nearly 100%. The Pap test may be combined with a test for human papilloma virus (HPV).

Colorectal cancer screening

Colorectal cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer in both men and women, and the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. Regular screening can find colorectal cancer early when treatment is most effective. Screening tests can also prevent cancer by removing polyps before they have the chance to turn into cancer.
