Screening & Detection

This year, well over a million people will be diagnosed with cancer in the United States. Researchers estimate that up to a third of premature cancer deaths could be avoided with screening. In addition to reducing cancer deaths, screening also offers the benefit of detecting cancer at an earlier stage when it may be more treatable.

The Cancer Center of Santa Barbara is a member of the City of Hope’s Cancer Screening and Prevention Program. Santa Barbara County residents can meet with our program coordinator to learn whether they may be at an increased risk for cancer.

General screening guidelines are provided by our Wellness Department. Detailed information about screening recommendations for a variety of cancers can be found in the following list.
