Cancer screenings are now an essential part of our lives. A screening checks your body for cancer before you develop symptoms. For women, scheduling screening tests regularly can help to detect breast, cervical, ovarian, uterine and colon cancer. A screening will give you the best possible chance of finding cancerous cells as early as possible.

Dr. Palacio takes appointments for mammograms in order to find breast cancer early on so that it will be easier to treat. A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast, and is the best way to detect early signs of cancerous cell growth. You can also schedule a Pap test at our clinic in order for us to determine if you have cervical cancer. If there are abnormal cells in the cervix that may turn into cancer, we can discuss the proper treatment options. Women should schedule regular Pap tests starting at the age of 21.
