Prevention and Screening
 

New Progress in Cancer Prevention

City of Hope believes the best way to stop cancer is to prevent it in the first place. That's why we focus on cancer prevention.
 
Because one of the best ways to stop cancer is to adopt healthy habits, we offer a range of classes and wellness consultants. They can assist in stopping smoking, eating nutritious means, exercising more frequently, stress management and other actions you can begin almost immediately.
 
Also, in some cases, there is a higher risk factor for developing cancer in patients with a hereditary or genetic history.  City of Hope offers a comprehensive cancer risk assessment that focuses on family history and genetics, while also taking into account environmental and lifestyle factors. Patients will receive steps to take following this assessment to help lower risks for developing cancer.
 

Cancer Screening

In addition to helping you get your regular screenings for breast, cervical, colorectal, and skin cancer, we offer new services such as our low dose CT lung cancer screening program. This non-invasive test is recommended for those who are at high risk.

Additionally, City of Hope offers a comprehensive cancer risk assessment that focuses on your family history and genetics. This state-of-the art program provides concrete steps you can take to lower your risk.
