Prevention and Diagnostics

The first step in cancer treatment is prevention. At Health Quest, our goal is to help you and your family prevent cancer or detect it in its earliest stages for the best possible outcome. Our cancer prevention and diagnostic services include:

  • 3D mammography. With its exceptional clarity, this test can detect smaller breast tumors earlier, reduce the need for follow-up and provide greater accuracy in identifying tumor size and location.
  • Breast and lymph node biopsies. Our physicians use specially designed equipment that allows for examination of breast and lymph node tissue. Small samples of tissue are extracted through a biopsy needle for pathology to review.
  • MRI and ultrasound imaging. These tests can scan any angle of the body to create clear, highly detailed images. To learn more about these services, see Imaging Services.
  • Genetic screening. For patients with cancer or a family history of cancer, our physicians can screen for gene mutations and assess risk. To learn more about this service, see Genetic Counseling.
  • Cancer screenings. At your annual physical, you and your primary care provider should discuss the various screenings available for skin, prostate and breast cancer.
  • Lung cancer screening.  A CT (computerized tomography) scan of the chest, also known as a lung CT, is an important way to screen for early signs of lung cancer. Early detection means more treatment options. To learn more, see Thoracic Oncology.
  • Smoking cessation. If you smoke, we offer programs to help you quit.
