Most cancers are detected through medical imaging. Imaging can be used for cancer screening (as with a mammogram), or as a follow-up when a primary care physician or surgeon detects an abnormality. Our radiologists use computerized tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) to take a closer look at areas of concern.
When your physician detects an abnormality, he or she may order a biopsy to obtain a tissue sample. At this point, a pathologist determines if a mass is cancerous. After a surgeon removes all or part of the mass, the pathologist helps stage, or determine how advanced the cancer is, by studying the size of the mass.

We offers cancer screenings throughout the year. Check with your physician for a screening schedule that is most appropriate for you. Screenings for diseases such as breast cancer, cervical cancer, colon and rectal cancers, and skin cancer can be scheduled through your physician at a time convenient for you.
