Cone Health Offers Free Cancer Screenings

Cervical cancer and skin cancer screenings are available.

 

Cone Health offers free screenings for both cervical cancer and skin cancer in the coming months. Cervical cancer screenings will take place in February, March and April. Skin cancer screenings will be available in May and June. The screenings are free to those who are uninsured or who cannot afford to see a physician.  

Risk factors for cervical cancer include having human papillomavirus, smoking, having a weak immune system, long-time birth control use, being overweight and having a family history of cervical cancer.

Having fair skin, being male, being older, having a large number of moles, having significant sun exposure, smoking and having a family history of skin cancer are all risk factors for skin cancer. 

Screenings will be offered at a variety of locations. Although the screenings are free, registration is required. Call 336-832-8000 to reserve a spot. You can also visit conehealth.com/classes and then select “screenings” for more information.
