Gynecologic cancer screening
Gynecologic cancer screening is an essential component of our gynecology services, and it begins with a yearly pelvic exam and Pap test at your healthcare provider’s office. Your provider may also use the human papillomavirus (HPV) test to screen for cervical cancer, which can be informative if your Pap test results are inconclusive.
Always discuss abdominal, menstruation or urinary concerns with your doctor. These conversations will help your doctor determine if and which screening tests are needed.
Lung nodule program
We use innovative technologies to detect suspicious lung nodules by analyzing computerized tomography (CT) exams for the presence of incidental lung nodules, which could represent malignancy. Our lung nodule coordinator works collaboratively with you and your team of healthcare providers to improve access to care with early detection and intervention.
We are encouraging all our healthcare partners to prioritize low-dose lung CT (LDCT) screenings and identify at-risk patients. You may qualify for LDCT if you meet the following criteria:
- Between ages 50-77
- Current smokers with at least a 20 pack-year history
- Former smokers who have quit within the past 15 years with a 20 pack-year history
- No current signs or symptoms of lung cancer
- No personal history of lung cancer
If you think you are a good candidate for lung cancer screening, please contact your healthcare provider.
