In 2018, the National Cancer Institute reported 18.1 million new cancer diagnoses worldwide. Receiving a cancer diagnosis is never easy. But no matter where you are on your cancer journey, there are people, resources and teams of health care professionals ready to help you. Cancer treatment is not just treating the malignant components of your diagnosis, but also tending to your physical and mental health needs.
NJ Cancer Education and Early Detection (NJCEED)
We offer free screenings for community members who are uninsured or underinsured to encourage early detection of cancer, when it is most treatable.
Inspira’s Approach to the NJ Cancer Education and Early Detection Program (NJCEED)
Many cancers have a greater than 90 percent cure rate when they are caught early. Our screening programs also include an educational component designed to help you reduce your cancer risk and promote the early detection of cancer.
Free cancer screenings are available to those who are eligible, including:
- PSA (prostate-specific antigen) blood test for prostate cancer
- Clinical breast exam and mammogram for breast cancer
- Pelvic exam and Pap test for cervical cancer
- Digital-rectal exam for prostate cancer and stool test for colon and rectal cancer
- Periodic free cancer screenings are offered as well
