Cancer screening is integral for early detection of cancer. Cancer is more easily treated in the early stages and screening can detect cancer before symptoms appear.
Talk to your primary health care physician about what cancer screenings you should be receiving. Individuals with a family history of cancer should especially consider regular cancer screenings and discuss the regularity of these screenings with their physician.
To schedule a cancer screening, or to learn more about available screenings, please call (801) 855-4100.
