Increasing Awareness for Crucial Cancer Screenings

Health-related observances occur on days, weeks and months throughout the year to help raise awareness of various medical conditions.

September is associated with several cancer observances, including blood, gynecologic, prostate and thyroid. Because awareness months encourage screenings for early detection, now feels like a good time to remind our community about key cancer screening tests.

Certain cancer screenings should be part of one’s regular, proactive, preventive care because early detection often means more treatment options and better outcomes. I reached out to Mark Roh, M.D., MMM, chief physician executive for the Lee Health Cancer Institute, to review some examples of important cancer screenings.
