Getting regular routine screenings for different kinds of cancers (breast, testicular, lung, cervical, ovarian, prostate, colorectal and skin) may help to find them early when treatment is most likely to work best. Routine screenings and exams are important for everyone, but many LGBT individuals may have increased risk for certain cancers and are often less likely and less able to access adequate healthcare. Learn more about the importance of routine screenings and early detection, and locate a healthcare facility near you that provides cancer screenings in a safe, LGBT-affirming environment.
The Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester and Rochester Colon & Rectal Surgeons are excellent local resources, as well.
