Early detection is one of the best weapons against cancer.
One in three women and one in two men will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetimes. Regular screenings can help identify many cancers in their earliest stages when they can be treated successfully. Our screening services are targeted to men and women ages 40 and older.
Screenings are offered conveniently at one location so you don't have to make several appointments. If you need only a partial examination to supplement screenings already done by your personal physician, our staff can accommodate your specific needs and send the results to you and your physician.
If you live outside the Columbia area, an option to be seen on the mammography van is also available.
