Prevention & Detection

Cancer Screenings

Screenings are a helpful way to detect cancers early — when they’re most treatable.

Healthy Living

A healthy lifestyle is one of the keys to living a life that’s free of cancer.

Take a Proactive Approach

Half of all men and one-third of women in the United States will develop cancer in their lifetime. That’s a startling statistic from the American Cancer Society, but we don’t often feel the magnitude of that loss in our day to day lives.

Cancer cannot be prevented, but there are many ways to reduce your likelihood of getting cancer. Start by having a mutually respectful relationship with a primary care physician who provides preventive care for long-term good health. Your physician can guide you toward lifestyle changes that may reduce the possibility of cancer in your future. Consider preventive screenings that uncover cancer early — especially if you have a family history of cancer.

Community Outreach

We work in local schools, businesses, churches and civic organizations providing free cancer screenings and lifestyle guidance that can can yield better health.

  • Mobile Mammography
    Our mobile mammography unit brings digital mammograms and bone density scans to women out in the community.
  • Prostate Screenings
    We provide men with free prostate-specific antigen (PSA) tests to help identify the presence of an elevated protein in the blood.
  • Tobacco Cessation
    We distribute tobacco prevention and cessation packets within Columbia, Lexington and surrounding-area businesses, churches, health fairs and local festivals.
  • Group Feedback
    One-on-one or group feedback sessions help individuals understand their health care results and find appropriate health care providers.
