Cervical Cancer Screening

Regular screenings for cervical cancer can help find abnormal cervical cells before they turn into cervical cancer. Recommended for women ages 21 to 65, there are 2 kinds of screening tests—Pap tests, also called Pap smears and HPV (human papillomavirus) tests. If you are age 66 or older, ask your doctor if you need to continue regular cervical cancer screening.

Consult your doctor for more information on cervical cancer screenings.

If you have a history of smoking at least 30-packs of cigarettes a year, quit smoking within the past 15 years or currently smoke, we strongly encourage you to get screened for lung cancer. Even if you are in relatively good health and show no symptoms.

Prostate Cancer Screening

Opinions vary on how often prostate screenings are needed. But around the age of 50, all men should at least talk with a doctor and gather information. Men who are at higher risk of developing prostate cancer should talk to their doctors sooner—including African Americans and men who have a first-degree relative (father, brother, or son) diagnosed with prostate cancer before the age of 65.

Regardless of age or risk, all men should gather information about the uncertainties, risks, and potential benefits of a prostate cancer screening and should not be screened unless they are properly informed.

Skin Cancer Screening

It's important to see a dermatologist yearly, but the screening process truly starts with you. Be sure to perform monthly self-screenings to detect skin cancer, especially if you have risk factors for skin cancer, including: fair complexion, family history, excessive sun exposure or severe sunburns as a child.
