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.

"Amazing new ED treatment! I have been utilizing Horizon Medical Center for my healthcare needs since they opened. They have been trusted to help resolve any of my health issues. I was informed of a new, groundbreaking, painless, FDA approved, ED treatment. After researching this process, I realized I was very interested. After completing the treatment, I can say that the results were far better than expected! The care and concern from the Doctors and Staff made the treatment simple and far better than any other options on the market today."- K. / Google / Jun 07, 2021
"Tried Ultraslim therapy as well as face/neck Clearlift treatments - totally professional services and the "right equipment" including laser skin tightening and a vibration plate to drain the lymphatic system of fats for Ultraslim treatments. As a side note: for Ultraslim patients, I recommend that investing in a home-version of vibration plates from Amazon or other retailers...25 Hz plates is the minimum for good muscle gain but 15 Hz for basic lymphatic draining is fine and must be used daily for several months. Kelly initiated this with a very professional package with nice touches - and did not hard sell anything. She offers really good soft skills and is quite expert in this field. Natalia was very considerate when she took over and Karen did fabulous work with the skin tightening - I can't believe that she could work this rigorously (plus she is wonderful to work with....). Most importantly, the team listened to what I wanted - they gave me extra rounds for the lower flanks/back in lieu of the upper torso per my wishes to focus on fat loss where I needed it most. Ultraslim results: fair enough with over 12" overall loss but it looks better on paper than in real life despite some notably good changes. That's because I have loose skin and visceral fat (for the latter I did nine Emsculpt treatments at the Forever Young Anti-Ageing Center in Wisconsin - they get an honorable mention due to their pricing). For Clearlift - I got a very good deal initially for the face/neck - and was so impressed by the work put in by Karen that I took up another package for three additional treatments. It's instructive to note that I was planning to go to another clinic for more Clearlift treatments as they had a great promotion - but Karen was so artful and passionate and "went the extra mile" that I decided to stay here. Finally - I've been going in for diabetes treatments with Ashish Patel and some other doctors before (Dr. Mehta, Dr. Kulkarni) - all were helpful and professional and ordered the right tests. Costs for medical tests/blood tests are also totally reasonable unlike in hospitals - and services by the facility nurses (like Nazia) were a positive experience. No complaints here - this is a very professional, reasonably priced healthcare provider."- S.M. / Google / Oct 21, 2021

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.
