Routine Screenings to Stay Ahead of Cancer

Men’s health screenings are more than just routine appointments. In many cases, it’s a screening that saves a life. Colorectal, prostate and lung screenings help catch cancer early, when it’s easiest to treat — and often before symptoms start, too.

Colon Cancer
Colon cancer is more than 90% curable if diagnosed early. You’re eligible to start colorectal screenings at age 45 with an average risk of colon cancer — an update from the previously recommended age 50.

Our team can perform colorectal cancer screening tests like stool-based tests (yearly), minimally invasive options like a flexible sigmoidoscopy or a CT colonography scan (every five years) and colonoscopies (every 10 years). If you’re due for a screening, schedule with us today – physician referral may be required.

Schedule Your Screening

Prostate Cancer
Because prostate cancer now affects 1 in 8 men in the U.S., screenings are more important than ever. You’re eligible to start annual prostate cancer screenings at age 45 if you have a high risk of prostate cancer, or at age 50 if you have an average risk.

A urologist is the best expert to work with to get a prostate screening test like a digital rectal exam (DRE), a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test, a lipid panel or an imaging test. Your urologist will work with you to understand which is best for you. 

Lung Cancer
After prostate cancer, lung cancer is the most common cancer among American men, and it often doesn’t show any symptoms until it’s more advanced. You’re eligible for a lung cancer screening if you’re at a high risk, meaning you’re age 50 or older and have smoked one pack of cigarettes per day for 20 years or two packs for at least 10 years. 

Our Nurse Navigators can connect you with a specialist who can perform lung cancer screenings like low-dose computed tomography (CT) scans, which are available as a self-pay option for $150 at most of our imaging centers. If you meet the high-risk criteria, most insurances will cover your lung cancer screening. 

American College of Radiology Accreditation for Radiation Oncology

We’ve been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in radiation oncology as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology (ACR). The ACR seal of accreditation represents the highest level of quality and patient safety.
