Presence Health

When it comes to beating cancer, early detection is everything. At Presence Health cancer centers throughout Chicago, our expert oncology teams and advanced technology help us catch the disease in its earliest—and most treatable—stages.

We bring the latest cancer screening technology close to where you live and work, so there’s no need to wait weeks for an appointment at an academic hospital. The high level of care you deserve is in your own backyard.

Why is Early Detection of Cancer so Important?

Finding cancer early gives you a better survival rate, while often means shorter and less costly treatments. The American Cancer Society provides cancer screening guidelines on what tests you should schedule and when, even if you have no cancer symptoms. Sometimes, the symptoms are only noticeable once the cancer is in an advanced stage and has spread to other areas of the body.

Why Choose our Cancer Screenings?

With Presence Health’s screening services, you now have access to the most sophisticated, affordable tests to catch cancer early—or even prevent it altogether.

  • Rapid results: Many of our hospitals can return a diagnosis within 24 to 48 hours, which is some of the fastest timing in the nation. Other hospitals outside Presence Health may take up to seven days.
  • Fast, convenient appointments: We schedule tests quickly and some cancer centers offer evening and weekend hours. You can have certain tests, like mammograms, done on a walk-in basis, without an appointment or doctor’s order.
  • Advanced screening technology: We offer the recently developed low-dose CT scan for lung cancer screening, as well as the most sophisticated cancer diagnosis technology for breast cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer and many more.
  • Home testing and community outreach: From colon cancer home screening kits to cervical cancer awareness events in your community, we come to where you are to make it easy for you to learn about cancer and get screened.

Genetic Testing for Cancer at Presence Health

Many of our cancer centers offer services and referrals for genetic testing to help determine your likelihood for developing certain types of cancer. Genetic testing looks for mutations in your genes that might predict your cancer risk, especially if your family has a history of cancer.

Our physicians and genetic counselors can help you:

  • Decide whether you should seek genetic testing
  • Determine whether the results will be useful to you
  • Discuss what your next steps would be
  • Determine how the results might affect you and your family
