If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to consult with a healthcare provider to receive a cancer screening. It is crucial to detect cancer at early stages so you can receive the care you need as soon as possible. Regular screenings significantly improve cancer prognosis and decreases the risk of cancer-related deaths.
Certain screenings we recommend receiving regularly include mammograms, colonoscopies, pap smears, and more. There are also habits you can adopt to reduce the risk of developing cancer, such as maintaining a healthy lifestyle, exercising regularly, receiving annual wellness exams, and avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption.
