Screening & Prevention

skin cancer examMoffitt Cancer Center’s Screening and Prevention Program specializes in monitoring and early detection for many types of cancer. This advanced program provides a wide range of screening, surveillance and counseling services, incorporating the latest advancements in imaging, biomarker testing and genetic risk assessment to give patients the peace of mind they deserve. Working closely with each patient’s referring physician, we empower individuals of all ages to take a more proactive role in their health.

Moffitt’s Screening and Prevention Program accepts referrals for patients with an elevated risk of cancer due to family history, carcinogen exposure or age, as well as patients who do not currently have any known risk factors but would like to learn more about cancer prevention. We also accept referrals for patients who have received abnormal test results and therefore require advanced monitoring for potentially cancerous developments.

At Moffitt, patients work with a team of physicians, advanced practice professionals (PAs and ANRPs), technologists, scientists, counselors, and fellowship-trained radiologists, all of whom specialize in a specific type of cancer. To connect patients with the team that can best serve their needs, we operate the following clinics, each with a particular area of focus:

  • Breast Evaluation Clinic
  • Breast Surveillance Clinic
  • Breast Cancer Survivorship Clinic
  • Cervical Dysplasia Clinic
  • Genetics Testing and Counseling Clinic
  • Familial Breast and Ovarian Cancer Screening and Prevention Clinic
  • FreshBreak Smoking Cessation Clinic
  • High Risk Gastrointestinal Cancer Clinic
  • Prostate Evaluation Clinic
  • Vulva Dysplasia Clinic

This level of specialization allows our teams to recommend the best screening and prevention options for each patient. We offer a comprehensive range of tests and scans, from low-dose CT scans and digital imaging scans with computer-aided detection (CAD), to bone density tests and genetic counseling. Blood tests and biopsies are all completed in our on-site lab by site-specific pathologists to ensure prompt and accurate reporting of results.
