Cancer Screening Recommendations

At University Hospitals, we offer comprehensive cancer screenings. Cancer screenings help find cancer early, when it’s easier to treat. In some cases, screening can detect pre-cancerous changes before they progress, preventing cancer from occurring.

Depending on your individual cancer risk and family history, your doctor may advise starting screening earlier or more often. Learn more about the latest cancer screening recommendations by age.

Most importantly, if something does not seem right, it is best to talk with your primary care physician and get your questions answered.
