Am I at Risk?

Cancer is now Iowa’s leading cause of death with more than 17,400 Iowans diagnosed each year. In Linn County alone, one person dies from cancer every day.*

Hearing that you or a loved one has or may have cancer can be shocking, scary and overwhelming, but you are not alone. Educate yourself by learning about cancer symptoms and the diagnostic exams and screenings we use to diagnose symptoms. Or, contact us to get a second opinion.

While not all cancers can be prevented, some can. Learn more about specific cancers by watching educational cancer videos. The likelihood that you'll get cancer may also depend upon your family history. Learn more about genetics and cancer.
