Finding Cancer When It Starts

Early detection is critical to catching and treating different kinds of cancer. Through screenings, biopsies, and clinical exams, Intermountain’s skilled physicians and technicians can better watch for and monitor any risks. Talk to your doctor about how often you should receive a mammogram, colonoscopy, skin exam, or prostate exam.

No words are more dreaded by patients and physicians alike than being told you have cancer. We are dedicated to detecting cancer early, and helping our patients fight it through advanced therapies and proven cancer treatments.

If cancer is detected through a screening or exam, Intermountain’s expert team of oncologists and care managers will determine a treatment plan that fits your individual needs. We employ a variety of effective treatment options including chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgery to get you cancer-free and living well. We fight cancer with you and for you.
