Cancer Screenings for Everyone

Premier Health offers a wide variety of cancer screening procedures.

Colon Cancer Screenings

Colon cancer almost always starts with a polyp. Testing can save lives by finding polyps before they become cancer. If pre-cancerous polyps are removed, it can help to prevent colon cancer.

Lung Cancer Screenings

Lung cancer is one of the few cancers that can often be prevented and is usually caused by long-term tobacco use. If you are a smoker, ask your doctor to help you quit smoking. If you don’t smoke, don’t start. You can also be at higher risk for lung cancer if you breathe secondhand smoke, have a family history of lung cancer or you have been exposed to certain environmental and workplace substances.  These include asbestos, arsenic, chromium, tar and soot.  Taking beta carotene supplements (pills) increases the risk of lung cancer, especially in smokers who smoke one or more packs a day. The risk is higher in smokers who have at least one alcoholic drink every day. 

Premier Health Cancer Institute offers lung cancer screening using low dose CT. Find out if you qualify.

Skin Cancer Screenings

Anyone who spends time in the sun can develop skin cancer. People with fair skin, especially those with blonde or red hair, are more likely to get skin cancer than people with darker coloring. Those who have had a close family member with melanoma and those who had severe sunburns before age 18 are more likely to get skin cancer.

Talk with your physician if you think you might be in need of a skin cancer screening or if you are interested in more information about them.
