We want you to feel your best — so you can live your best. We’re here to help you stay on top of important health screenings and understand your options.
Breast Cancer Screening
The Norton Healthcare Mobile Prevention Center provides clinical breast exams and mammograms.
A screening mammogram is used to check for potential breast issues in women who have no symptoms. It is the best way to find breast cancer early, when it’s more treatable. Low-cost/no-cost mammograms may be available, and insurance will be billed.
If you are age 50 to 75, it might be time for a colon cancer screening.
Norton Healthcare offers:
- Colonoscopy: A procedure in which a thin tube with a camera is inserted into the colon to look for abnormalities.
- Fecal immunochemical test (FIT): Stool is collected and sent to a lab to look for blood.
- Cologuard: Stool is collected and sent to a lab to look for DNA changes and hidden blood.
Other screening options may be available.
Cervical Cancer Screening
Pap smears and HPV testing for cervical cancer are available at the Norton Healthcare Mobile Prevention Center for women age 40 and over, including those without health insurance.
