Prevention and Screening
The care and attention you deserve
When it comes to cancer, we believe firmly in education. We hold various events throughout the year to keep the community up-to-date on our latest efforts. But more importantly, we take your health and all possibilities of cancer prevention seriously. That’s why we have an ongoing relationship with the American Cancer Society and the Fairfield County community.
We run thorough screening tests for the following cancers:
The good news is cancer can be discovered early or even prevented altogether through self-exams, periodic checkups and screening procedures. We use leading-edge technology and testing methods such as:
3D breast tomosynthesis
A 64-slice CT scanner
High-resolution magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
Fine needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy
PSA and genetic testing
Cancer Support Services
If you've been diagnosed with cancer, we'll connect you with a Nurse Navigator for a familiar, friendly face and guidance every step of the way. Your Nurse Navigator will identify any barriers to timely care so you don't have to and will connect you with educational resources. She'll facilitate communication with your healthcare providers, streamline appointments, and coordinate access to any financial assistance and social services you need.
We'll also connect you with emotional support services and integrative medicine services during your journey.
Skilled surgical oncologists
You may need surgery as part of your cancer treatment plan. Our oncologists collaborate with our skilled surgeons to determine the best course of action for you. High-quality care and attention to detail are always the top priority. Our surgical oncologists also use minimally invasive cancer surgery options whenever possible which means less pain, less blood loss, and a quicker return home. Whatever the case may be, we provide accurate and timely answers and diagnosis, all with specialized care using the most advanced technology.
Research & Clinical Trials
Research & Clinical Trials
Immunotherapy is An FDA-approved approach that uses the patient's immune system to attack cancer. Immunotherapy offers patients an alternative to more traditional treatments like chemotherapy. We've participated in clinical trials using immunotherapies and now use it as a standard treatment for our patients. We have multiple open trials available for melanoma, as well as lung and breast cancers, with new opportunities becoming available regularly. We have been amazed by some of our patient’s clinical responses to immunotherapy and look forward to treating more patients with this revolutionary treatment.
Cancer research and clinical trials
Clinical trials offer those with cancer a hope for today and a commitment to exploring innovative therapies for tomorrow. Stamford Health's Bennett Cancer Center's oncologists often research the latest clinical trials to provide a range of offerings for those undergoing initial cancer treatments, and for those whose cancer is recurring or advanced in stage. See the full list of clinical trials.
