CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The Community Oncology Alliance and Cancer Care have teamed up for the Time To Screen campaign.

Wyomingites can visit or call 1-855-53-SCREEN (1-855-537-2733) to find out where to get one. This campaign was created because cancer screenings have gone down significantly. They have gone down 85 percent for breast cancer and 75 percent for colon cancer.

This campaign is to help Wyomingites get screened so they can catch cancer early. “Those delays make oncologists nervous because delaying those interventions can lead to bad outcomes,” said Frederick Schnell M.D., the Chief Medical Officer for Community Medical Alliance.

These screenings can help screen for six common cancers: breast, colorectal, cervical, prostate, lung and skin.
