Cancer Doesn’t Wait and Neither Should You

Getting recommended medical screenings may be the most important thing you can do for your health. Speak to your doctor about what health screenings are right for you. Screenings to detect cancer such as mammography, lung screening, colonoscopy, pap test, prostate screening, and skin screening can detect cancer when it’s most treatable. Physician offices and screening locations are open, and have implemented protocols to keep you safe. Call 1-844-HMH-WELL to schedule an appointment for screening near you.

FAQs for patients

Cancer Screenings

Reducing your risk of cancer by avoiding tobacco, maintaining a healthy weight, and using sunscreen are some of the best approaches you can take to protect yourself from cancer. The next best thing to prevention is early detection: finding cancer in its early, most treatable stages. That is the goal of cancer screening tests such as mammograms, colonoscopies, lung cancer screening, and skin exams.
