Cancer Prevention & Screening

Seek cancer-screening guidance from your primary care doctor at UNC Health Caldwell 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:

  • Age
  • Personal health history
  • Family history of cancer
