Cancer. You may not want to think about it, but if you are at risk because of your age or your family history, you might want to talk to your doctor about screening tests. Screening tests can help find cancer early when treatment can work best.
Skin cancer screening- A recent free skin cancer screening event held by Harrison in Silverdale found that 42% of those screened were referred for further testing and 28% for biopsies.
For patients who have been diagnosed with cancer, we offer ongoing support groups for patients and their families to help them cope with their diagnoses, treatments, and recoveries.
Harrison also partners with the American Cancer Society in sponsoring walk teams for four community Relay for Life events to raise money for cancer research.
A Women’s Health Screening Fund has also been created by the Harrison Medical Center Foundation that will help women access potentially life-saving screenings for cancer. The fund extends the safety net that already exists in our community by working with local, contracted providers.
