Early Detection & Prevention

Why? Screening makes a difference in cancer incidence and mortality statistics. The more people we screen, the better our chances that fewer people will develop the disease or that we can find it sooner to successfully treat it.

That philosophy, and the Cancer Nurse Navigator program created to support it, made a difference in colon cancer. That’s why we’ve applied that same thinking to cervical, breast and prostate cancer. It’s especially important to reach the 40% to 50% of men in Delaware who have not been screened for prostate cancer. As well as the girls and young women who can receive a FDA approved HPV vaccine to help prevent cervical cancer. As with colon cancer, many of our medically underserved residents are unaware of the availability of affordable or free screenings.
