World Cancer Day is February 4, and one of the most important factors in fighting cancer is early detection. This is why screening is so important. Screenings can identify cancer in its earliest stages, often before symptoms have even occurred. According to the National Cancer Institute and Radiology Business, mammography has helped reduce breast cancer mortality by nearly 40% since 1990. Simply put, health screenings can save lives. Jefferson Outpatient Imaging wants to spread the word about the significance of proper screening.

In honor of World Cancer Day, Jefferson Outpatient Imaging is inviting people to participate in a pledge to get screened for cancer when appropriate and recommended by their doctor. Share your pledge on Facebook by January 31 using the hashtag #pledge2screenwithJOI to be entered for a chance to win a $250 spa gift card. Do you have a personal story about how cancer has affected your life? Include your story along with your pledge post. The winner will be announced on World Cancer Day, February 4. Be sure to Like and Follow Jefferson Outpatient Imaging on Facebook for more on screening options and World Cancer Day.

The Pledge:

“I pledge to discuss my cancer screening options with my doctor. I also pledge to tell a loved one about their cancer screening options.”

3 Screenings to Know About

  1. Annual screening mammogram— The American College of Radiology and Society of Breast Imaging recommend annual screening mammograms should begin for most women at age 40, but your doctor may recommend you start earlier if you have family history or other risk factors. Talk to your physician about what’s right for you.
  2. Low Dose CT Lung Screening— Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in both men and women in the US. If you are a former or current smoker who meets certain requirements, this fast, simple test could help diagnose lung cancer earlier, when it’s most treatable. Many insurance plans including Medicare now cover low dose CT lung screenings, but check with your provider to confirm your coverage.
  3. Virtual Colonoscopy—This test is ideal for men and women over 50 who cannot have a traditional colonoscopy. For more information, talk to your doctor or give JOI a call.

All three tests are available at Jefferson Outpatient Imaging in East Norriton. To schedule an appointment, call 215-503-4900.
