A cancer screening can provide peace of mind. Not just for you, but for your loved ones as well. These days, more people are surviving cancer than ever. That is partly because more people are realizing the importance of screening and early detection.
We are committed to defeating cancer here at Goshen Health. That's why Goshen Center for Cancer Care and Goshen Physicians offer a number of cancer screenings and risk assessments throughout the year.
- Mammograms produce computerized breast images that help identify abnormalities, such as very small lumps, areas of calcification or other changes in the breast
- Colonoscopies help detect early-stage colorectal cancer, which does not usually have symptoms
- Lung cancer screenings provide images of the lungs that help detect cancer, even in its early stages
- Skin screenings help identify signs of precancerous or cancerous growths. Moles, birthmarks and other skin discolorations are examined for shape and size irregularities, evolving colors, asymmetry and uneven borders. If skin cancer is suspected, a sample biopsy can be taken. Education on prevention and skin cancer is also provided.
