Cancer is a disease that no one ever wants to think about, but unfortunately, is all too real. Women especially, have to be on the alert for issues like cervical cancer and breast cancer. Cancer screening is vital in this regard, as early detection is our best weapon against all forms of this disease. Regular screening for cancer is always a good idea. However, if you are currently experiencing pelvic issues like pain or bleeding, or think you have detected a lump, we recommend you come in for a cancer check-up immediately.
What Is Cancer Screening?
A cancer screening is a basic cancer check-in in which we examine you for early signs of cancer. If serious issues are detected, we may recommend further tests like a biopsy or colposcopy to confirm our diagnosis. If we confirm a diagnosis of cancer, we will want to begin treatment as quickly as possible. This is important to prevent spread.
What Screening Tests Are Available?
The types of cancer we most commonly screen for here at Radiant Women’s Health are breast cancer, cervical cancer, and colorectal cancer. The procedure for all of these begins with a basic physical evaluation. Afterward, we can provide the basic screening tests for these types of cancer: mammograms, Pap smear, and colonoscopy. We may recommend more tests based on your age, symptoms, and family history of cancer.
