Screenings

You can wonder and wait and get worked up with conflicting information online. Or, you can spare mere minutes to get tested, be heard and know for sure. Screenings are an excellent preventive measure that spare you from all the what-ifs.

Genetic Cancer Testing

If cancer runs in your family and plays on your mind, you can act now – even when you’re completely healthy, especially when – to uncover your lifetime risk.

Through our partnership with GenPath, you can take a hereditary cancer test to reveal cancer-causing mutations before they become problematic.

Women’s Specialty Care gives you the expertise of a leading genetics laboratory within the comfort of our outpatient clinics in Green Bay, Appleton and Marinette.

MyGeneticsTree (MGT) is an online tool to collect personal and family information to determine if you may be a candidate for genetic cancer testing for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. We strongly encourage you to take 10-15 minutes to complete the FREE, online assessment. Please be sure to enter clinician code: WSC11.

Following your completion of MGT, you will be scheduled for a follow-up appointment. Your appointment may include:

  • Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer Risk Assessment.
  • Genetic counseling and education about your risk of developing breast cancer and potential implications for family members.
  • Personalized surveillance plans.
  • Prevention strategies.

 

Pap and UTI Tests

The best time to schedule your pap:
Between 10 and 20 days after the start of menstruation. Pap smears can be performed by a physician, a physician’s assistant, a nurse practitioner or a certified nurse midwife.

Why it’s important to get checked:
Pap smears help detect early stages of cervical cancer, which can be caused by human papilloma virus, smoking, having multiple sexual partners or becoming sexually active at a young age.

Signs of a UTI:
Burning sensation during urination, frequent urge to go, pain in the back and abdomen, discoloration or unusual odor when urinating, fever and chills.

Causes:
Urinary Tract Infections occur when bacteria enters the urethra and travels to the bladder. Anything from tight-fitting jeans to sexual intercourse to frequent baths can cause them.

Why it’s important to get checked:
Essentially a bladder infection, UTIs can migrate from your bladder to your kidneys, causing more serious damage.

A simple urine test can be performed, as well as ultrasound and bladder scope imaging (cystoscope) if you have recurring UTIs, which can be indicative of a more serious health condition.

With available same-day appointments and an on-site lab, we can get you in quickly and process your test results immediately.

Bone Density

Providers order bone density screenings to assess bone mass, determine risks of fracture and confirm diagnosis of osteoporosis/manage treatment.

Situations that may require a screening:

  • Bone fractures that occur over the age of 50.
  • A loss in height of at least 1.6 inches.
  • Long-term use of steroid medications, such as prednisone.
  • Use of anti-rejection drugs after an organ or bone marrow transplant.
  • Drop in hormone levels, which can occur after menopause.
