Cancer Prevention & Screening
Seek cancer-screening guidance from your primary care doctor at Caldwell UNC Health Care to stay healthy and lower your risk of getting cancer.
What is Cancer Screening?
Screening tests look for disease before you have symptoms. When you get recommended screening tests, you and your doctor may be able to:
- Find and remove abnormal cells before they turn into cancer
- Detect cancer early, when it’s easier to treat
Cancer Screenings & Risk Factors
Talk to your doctor about the timing and type of cancer screenings that are right for you. Your doctor may advise screening more often than recommended guidelines based on your risk factors, including:
- Personal health history
- Family history of cancer

Screening Follow-Up Tests
Your doctor may order more diagnostic tests if your screening shows areas of concern. Count on our skilled and knowledgeable radiology technicians to perform your diagnostic imaging procedures.
You may need a biopsy to look at an abnormal area or lump found during a screening. A biopsy is a procedure that removes a small tissue sample, and then looks at it under a microscope to check for cancer cells.
