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.

Our Unique Approach

Your Care Team at Work

Screenings are medical tests done when you’re healthy, with no signs of illness. Just because your doctor recommends that you get screened, doesn’t necessarily mean you have cancer. And if you do, the experts at the UC Cancer Center are here to help you every step of the way.

Our Lung Cancer Screening Program is the first screening program in Greater Cincinnati.
Our triple-accredited breast cancer team is highly specialized in diagnosing breast cancer.
UC Cancer Center is the only center in the region to offer phase I clinical trials.
Our scientists work to better understand who may be at risk for certain types of cancer.
