Prevention & Screenings

Early detection is the first step toward fighting many types of cancer. 

OSF St Mary Medical Center offers an array of imaging tests designed to locate and pinpoint any problem areas. 

For more information on various types of tests and equipment. Your physician can help you determine whether a screening for a particular type of cancer may be beneficial.

Treatment

Upon receiving news that cancer has been detected, the next step is treatment.  Our cancer specialists at the Illinois Cancer Center offer options for both radiation and chemotherapy. 

 A poor diet and a lack of physical activity can lead to obesity and diabetes.  Both are a stepping stone to heart disease, stroke and other serious health conditions. 

Our goal is to address these "community health needs" and offer resources to help achieve a healthy lifestyle.
