Cancer Screening Program
We know that early detection of cancer saves lives. In fact, cancer survival rates have increased dramatically in recent years because of early detection. That’s why our cancer treatment center established Northwest Indiana’s first comprehensive cancer screening program. The program provides a personal risk assessment, prevention education and screenings. The low-cost screenings – availability determined by American Cancer Society guidelines – include breast, prostate, cervical, colorectal, testicular, head and neck, and skin.
