When it comes to cancer, we know that early detection is key. That's why the team at Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center works so hard to deliver free or low-cost cancer screenings. With these tools, we can find cancers sooner, when they're easier to treat.
We offer cancer screening tests for:
- Breast cancer. We provide free breast cancer screenings, which include a clinical breast exam by one of our providers as well as a 3D mammogram, to eligible women through a partnership with the St. Lawrence Cancer Services Program.
- Colorectal cancer. We provide free colorectal cancer screenings to uninsured individuals who meet screening criteria, through a generous grant from the St. Lawrence County Cancer Fund and the generosity of our physicians Christopher Brandy, MD.
- Lung cancer. We provide free lung cancer screenings to uninsured individuals and $99 lung cancer screenings to all others who meet the screening criteria, through a generous grant from the St. Lawrence County Cancer Fund and our physician Ali Gharagozloo, MD.
- Skin cancer. We provide free, countywide skin cancer screening annually through our six area health centers. There are no eligibility requirements for this screening.
We're proud to offer these programs to our community. Our low-cost screening program is just one of the ways we defend your tomorrow.
