Karmanos Gives You Your Best Chance Forward.

Cancer. It’s the word that changes everything, for patients and those who love them. A diagnosis doesn’t have to be the end of your story; it can be the beginning of a new chapter. And the direction it takes is a responsibility we share, together.

Screenings and Prevention.

Many forms of cancer do not display symptoms at their onset, so screening tests are used to monitor for warning signs. At Karmanos, we offer cancer screenings, including:

  • Mammograms
  • Lung Cancer Screening
  • Pap and HPV Tests
  • Colonoscopy/Cologuard
  • Genetic Counseling

A referral is not needed for a screening at Karmanos. Patients who participate in the Screening and Prevention Program at Karmanos receive unmatched attention from a specialized team of experts. If your screening results show signs of cancer, you can take comfort in knowing that you're in expert hands at one of the nation's top cancer centers.
