(July 2022)-Cancer screenings are vital to the early detection and prevention of cancer. At Clearview Cancer Institute, we recommend routine screenings for all men and women. According to Dr. John Waples, oncologist and hematologist at CCI, there are some exceptions to the rules, but there are fundamentals that everybody should know.
"Don't be bashful," said Dr. Waples. "This is your health we're talking about. Sometimes you only get one shot to prevent things. Get it done. Preventing cancer is a lot better than treating cancer and catching it early is a lot better than catching it later."
Pay attention to your body. If you have any questions about which screenings are appropriate for you or if exceptions apply, ask your Clearview Cancer Institute care team.
