Early detection can save lives. Learning your risk factors for cancer, heart disease or stroke can help prevent future illness and disability. At The Abramson Cancer Center at Chester County Hospital in West Chester, PA, our cancer screenings all utilize guidelines from national health organizations to categorize risk and recommend appropriate lifestyle change and/or medical follow up. Skilled health professionals and, where appropriate, board-certified physicians conduct all screenings. You will receive a copy of your screening results and receive educational material aimed at keeping you well.
In conjunction with Chester County Hospital's Department of Community Health and Wellness Services, we offer several regularly-scheduled cancer screenings and events throughout the year.
Upcoming Cancer Screenings:
Breast Cancer Screenings
Free breast cancer screenings are offered twice a year to women over 40 who do not have health insurance.
Cancer Risk Evaluation Program
This program is specifically designed for women who want information about their personal risk for breast and ovarian cancer based upon family history and other factors.
Lung Cancer Screening Program
Low-Dose CT Lung Screening can lower the risk of death from lung cancer by 20% and has proven to be effective in detecting lung cancer early, when it's most treatable. This screening is particularly recommended for adults between the ages of 55 and 77 who smoke or have a family history of lung cancer.
