What Is a Cancer Screening Test?
Cancer is a disease that occurs when abnormal cells multiply beyond the body's ability to control their growth. Some of the most common types of cancer include breast, cervical, lung, colon, prostate, and skin cancers. The primary care physicians at Horizon Medical Center take a comprehensive approach to screen for various types of cancers before symptoms even arise. Early detection can allow for the treatment of the disease as soon as possible and reduce the risk of developing advanced or terminal cancers. Our team can perform a number of cancer screenings at our Schaumburg, IL practice and evaluate your risk factors for developing many types of cancers.

How Are Cancer Screening Tests Performed?
A cancer screening test may be recommended as a preventive measure or for patients who have risk factors for certain types of cancer. Prior to performing a cancer screening test, our experienced physicians will review any personal risk factors you may have, discuss any family history of cancer, and talk with you about exposure to carcinogens (such as tobacco or chemicals). At Horizon Medical Center, we have the ability to perform a number of cancer screening tests within our state-of-the-art office, including Pap smears, chest and lung x-rays, skin lesion checks, and lab tests to identify cancer markers in the blood, among others. If evidence of cancer is detected, further tests may be performed to confirm a diagnosis and develop a treatment plan.
