Cancer Screening For Women

Cancer screening for women has advanced quickly and efficiently. There are many ways that doctors can find issues and work quickly to correct them in the beginning stages. Cancer screening is important at all ages of a woman’s life, and it is imperative to remain constant on all of your checkups. Dr. Joanne Hinson is adept in many methods of cancer screening for women.

What are my options?

There are many different ways to screen a woman for different types of cancer. The earliest method, and the one that continues throughout a woman’s life, is a pelvic exam, which often will include a pap smear. Through a pap smear, a sample of cells is taken from the woman’s cervix and analyzed under a microscope. It is a quick and painless test that is excellent for detecting abnormal cells that can indicate cancer.

This is different than a cervical biopsy, also used for screening cancer, that harvests a piece of cervical tissue.

Endometrial biopsy is the analyzation of the uterus lining. The doctor will take a sample of the emdometruim and it will be tested for abnormalities.

Mammograms are also a well known tool to screen for breast cancer. Self-checks are essential every month, and mammograms essential every year after the age of 45, or perhaps younger if your direct relative had it. A woman’s breasts are pressed flat within a machine to scan it deeply for lumps in the tissue.

BrCA testing is not for everyone, but also helpful in cancer education and prevention. This tests a woman for a certain gene mutation and can let botht the patient and doctor know what the likelihood is of cancer.
