Let's intercept cancer together

Make a Crucial Catch with Dignity Health and the Arizona Cardinals by getting screened. Screenings for breast, colorectal, lung, prostate and skin cancer can help with early detection – which can save lives.

In some cases you may need a referral from your primary care provider. Don't have a primary care provider? No worries, Dignity Health offers many convenient primary care locations throughout the Valley.

  • Breast Cancer

  • Colorectal Cancer

  • Lung Cancer

  • Prostate Cancer

  • Skin Cancer

Breast cancer screening

Annual screening mammograms are recommended for women ages 40 and older. Your provider may recommend a different screening schedule if you’re at higher risk for breast cancer.

Colorectal cancer screening

The risk of colorectal cancer increases with age and family medical history of the disease. That’s why we recommend screening for everyone ages 45 and over.

Gynecologic cancer screening

Of gynecological cancers, only cervical cancer has a screening test, known as the Pap test, which improves your chances for prevention or successful treatment by detecting cell changes early. We recommend Pap tests for all women between ages 21 and 65.

Lung cancer screening

A low-dose CT screening for lung cancer may be recommended for men and women, ages 50 to 77, who are current or former smokers with a smoking history of 20 pack-years. A referral from a provider is needed for a low-dose lung CT screening.


Early Detection at Norton Thoracic Institute

Lung cancer remains one of the leading causes of death, but early detection can make all the difference. Screenings save lives.

Prostate cancer screening

Prostate cancer screenings are recommended for men ages 55 years and older, and those at high risk, particularly African-American men. Talk to your provider about the risks and benefits.

Skin cancer screening

Melanoma is a serious form of skin cancer, and it’s especially common here in sunny Arizona. And residents who are older, have fair skin, blue eyes, or a history of cancer are even more at risk. Ask your provider for more information about skin cancer screenings.

Other screenings

Talk with your primary care provider about any other cancer-related screenings you may need.
