Cancer screenings and eligibility

Our screening event is staffed by clinicians who volunteer their time and expertise. Call to ask which screenings will be available at this upcoming event.

Breast cancer

This screening includes a mammogram and a clinical breast exam. You may be eligible for this screening if you are 40+ years old and haven’t received a mammogram in the past 12 months.

Cervical cancer

Doctors typically recommend that all women get a Pap smear starting at the age of 21. If your results are normal, you’ll most likely only need one every three to five years depending on your age. You may be eligible for this screening if you are 21 – 65 years old.

Colorectal cancer

You’ll receive a noninvasive fecal immunochemical test (FIT) to screen your stool in the privacy of your own home. You may be eligible for this screening if you are 45+ years old.

Head and neck cancers

The clinician will feel for any lumps on your neck, lips, gums, and cheeks during this physical exam, and may also examine your nose, mouth, throat, and tongue for any abnormalities. You may be eligible for this screening if you are 18+ years old.

Lung cancer

We use low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) scans to screen people at high-risk for lung cancer. You may be eligible for this screening if you are 50 – 80 years old and have a history of smoking.

Prostate cancer

We’re offering prostate specific antigen (PSA) tests for men 45+. This test measures the level of PSA, a substance made by the prostate, in the blood.

Skin cancer

This screening consists of a physical exam where we’ll check your skin for moles, birthmarks, or any other marks with an unusual color, size, shape, or texture. You may be eligible for this screening if you are 18+ years old.
