Screening in the Community

Cancer Screening Matters

Getting screened for cancer is one of the most important things you can do to keep yourself healthy. Regular screening is linked to early detection, which often means a better chance for successful treatment. In some cases, screening can also detect pre-cancerous conditions that can be treated before cancer has a chance to develop. Our educational programs emphasize the importance of following current American College of Radiology cancer screening guidelines, and awareness of screening services available right here at Fox Chase Cancer Center.

Cancer Screening in the Community

The goal of the cancer screening program is to increase access to health care by bringing screening to the community. We work with businesses and community organizations to hold breast cancer screenings at your site.

For over 30 years, the Fox Chase Cancer Center Mobile Screening Unit (MSU, in partnership with Flyers Charities brings cancer screening to our communities. The MSU is the only one of its kind associated with an NCI Comprehensive Cancer Center in the Delaware Valley.
