The Statesir Cancer Center at CentraState Medical Center, Freehold Township, now offers pancreatic cancer screening for individuals whose family history puts them at a higher risk of pancreatic cancer.
Pancreatic cancer screenings hold great promise in earlier diagnosis, at a stage when the cancer is more treatable. It is seldom detected early because there are very few symptoms associated with it until it has spread to other organs, according to a press release.
To be eligible for the screening, prospective patients must have two or more first-degree relatives, such as a parent, sibling or child who had pancreatic cancer, or have one first-degree relative who had pancreatic cancer and have a known genetic mutation that may cause it, such as the BRCA gene, according to the press release.
Those who are deemed eligible get a complete medical screening and a non-invasive scan to determine if cancer may be present.
Most health insurance providers cover genetic testing when ordered by a physician; prospective patients should check on their coverage to determine coverage. For more information, call 732-308-4202, option 2.
