Our goal is to check for early signs of cancers, when the disease is frequently more treatable and which allows for a better long-term prognosis.
Cancer is a major cause of illness and death worldwide, and here at Manhattan Primary Care, our primary care physicians NYC focus on prevention and prompt detection.  Our goal is to check for early signs of cancers, when the disease is frequently more treatable and which allows for a better long-term prognosis. A screening will check your body for cancer, sometimes before you develop symptoms. You should always consult your physician to determine the appropriate screening tests and intervals. Guidelines change and your doctor will customize the recommendation to your specific case to keep you in good health. 

Regular cancer screenings can find colorectal, cervical, breast, prostate, and lung cancers early when treatment can be more effective and potentially less invasive.

Colorectal Cancer Screening

Usually, colorectal cancer develops from small polyps found in the colon or rectum. Regular screening can detect these polyps, removing them before they become cancerous. Regular screenings usually begin at age 45 (or earlier based on risk factors). Please speak with your doctor about the appropriate screening regimen as guidelines change and your doctor will need to investigate your risk factors before making a recommendation.

You might need to be tested earlier if you have a family history of:

  • Colorectal cancer
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Genetic syndrome that increases your risk

Colorectal Screening Tests

There are several colorectal cancer screening tests, and stool tests to detect signs of blood and which are usually carried out.  Colonoscopy is the gold standard for colorectal cancer screening.  Alternative tests may be available based on your situation so you should speak with your primary care doctor.

Cervical Cancer Screening

Cervical cancer causes can often be treated very successfully when detected early. The human papillomavirus (HPV) is a known risk factor for cervical cancer, and we can test for this separately. Depending on the results and whether you have HPV, the frequency of tests ranges.  Please speak with your doctor about the appropriate screening regimen as guidelines change and your doctor will need to investigate your risk factors before making a recommendation.

Pap Test

A cervical cancer screening uses a Pap test or Pap smear to analyze cells from the cervix and can detect abnormal and precancerous cells. If you do have abnormal cells and which could become cancerous, treatment can prevent cervical cancer from developing in many cases.

Breast Cancer Screening

Breast cancer is a common condition that screening is recommended for.  Recommendations vary by society and can change.  Screenings can involve diagnostic tests and clinical breast examinations.  Please speak with your doctor about the appropriate screening regimen as guidelines change and your doctor will need to investigate your risk factors before making a recommendation.

Mammograms

Breast cancer screenings frequently use a mammogram, a detailed x-ray of the breast to detect signs of this disease. Mammograms can help to detect breast cancer early before any lumps can be felt or before it causes other symptoms.

Breast Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Breast MRIs are now increasingly used to screen women because tissues can appear abnormal even when cancer isn’t present.

Women are recommended to carry out regular self-checks each month and to become aware of how healthy breasts look and feel so that any changes are more easily detected and can be reported to a doctor.

Prostate Cancer Screening

Prostate cancer screening checks for the prostate-specific antigen (PSA). Most cases of prostate cancer develop slowly, but in the United States alone, 12 out of 100 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer at some stage during their lifetime. Your doctor will also conduct a physical exam during your consultation.

PSA Test

The PSA test is a blood test that measures the level of PSA and can screen men who do not have any symptoms of prostate cancer. The test will show if PSA levels are normal or high, but a high level of PSA can have other cause besides prostate cancer.

Lung Cancer Screening

Lung cancer screening might be recommended by our physicians if you have a history of heavy smoking and currently smoke, or have quit during the past few years.  Please speak with your doctor about the appropriate screening regimen as guidelines change and your doctor will need to investigate your risk factors before making a recommendation.

Low-Dose CT Scan

A low-dose CT scan is recommended when screening for lung cancer. It provides a detailed image of the lungs using only low doses of radiation.

When you visit our practice, we will evaluate your level of risk for these cancers by carefully evaluating your medical history and your family medical history.
