The American Cancer Society and National Cancer Institute published recommendations for cancer screening tests. When abnormal tissue or cancer is found early, it may be easier to treat or cure. Early-stage cancer may not cause any symptoms. By the time symptoms appear, the cancer may have grown and spread. This can make the cancer harder to treat or cure. Understanding cancer screening recommendations will arm you with the information that you need to make the best decision for you.
Cancer Screenings We Offer
There are many different screening tests, and they can include the following types of exams. Talk to your doctor about the different options for each type of cancer screening so that you can make an informed decision that’s right for you.
How do I know if I'm high risk?
Some people may have an increased risk of developing cancer based on a previous cancer diagnosis or family history of cancer. Your age or gender may also be a factor. For this reason, it’s important to understand what “high risk” means for you. Talk with your doctor if you think this may apply to you. Your doctor will determine if you need to be screened more often or at an earlier age than other people.
REDUCING YOUR CANCER RISK
Why is my lifestyle important?
Eat Healthy and Get Moving
For most Americans who do not use tobacco, the most important cancer risk factors that can be changed are body weight, diet, physical activity and alcohol consumption.
Stay Away from All Forms of Tobacco
Smokers are up to 30 times more likely than nonsmokers to develop lung cancer – the deadliest of cancers.
Protect Yourself From HPV
Human papillomavirus (HPV) is very common and can cause six different types of cancers, including cervical cancer in women, penile cancer in men, anal cancer and throat cancer.
Win by Quitting
You Can Quit Smoking!
Usually, people try to quit smoking two or three times or more before they are successful. UC Cancer Center offers a six-step program, supervised by a physician, which makes the process of quitting easier. The decision to quit and your success depends on how much you want to stop. Are you ready?
