Breast Cancer Screening

MAMMOGRAM

EVERY 1-2 YEARS BASED ON MEDICAL AND FAMILY HISTORY
A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast used to detect breast cancer. Mammograms are generally recommended for women aged 40 and older, although women at higher risk of developing breast cancer may be advised to start screening earlier.

Cervical Cancer Screening

PAPANICOLAOU TEST (PAP TEST) 

EVERY 3 YEARS
A PAP Test is a screening test used to detect changes in the cells of the cervix that could lead to cervical cancer. PAP tests are generally recommended for women aged 25 and older.

Colorectal Cancer Screening

FECAL IMMUNOCHEMICAL TEST (FIT TEST)

EVERY 2 YEARS
A FIT test is a screening tool used to detect early signs of colon cancer. It is a simple at-home stool test which detects tiny amounts of blood in the stool which could be an indication of colon cancer. FIT tests are recommended for adults over the age of 50.
