The Southlake Academic Family Health Team is working closely with the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (MOHLTC) to ensure cancer screening is up to date.

The goal of our preventative care cancer screening service is to reduce the number of cancer diagnoses. In order to do this we have to make sure your cancer screening is up to date. This includes screening for breast, cervical and colorectal cancers.

You can also visit My CancerIQ to assess your individual Cancer Risk based on your personal history.

Breast Cancer Screening


Are you aged 50-74? 

If so, you may be at risk for breast cancer. Screening can find breast cancers when they are small, less likely to have spread and more likely to be treated successfully. People ages 50-74 have a lower risk of dying from breast cancer when they are screened regularly with mammograms. Breast cancer was expected to be the most common cancer diagnosed in Ontario women in 2018.

Ask your healthcare provider about a Mammogram.

Colorectal Cancer Screening


Are you aged 50-74? 

If so, you are at risk for colorectal cancer. Being screened increases the chances of detecting colorectal cancer early. Someone with colorectal cancer has a nine out of ten chance of being cured if the cancer is caught early. Ontario has among the highest rates of colorectal cancer in the world. 

Ask your healthcare provider about a Colonoscopy or a Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT)

Cervical Cancer Screening


Are you 21 or older and sexually active?

If so, you are at risk for HPV infection or cervical cancer.  Each year, about 630 women are diagnosed with cancer of the cervix and about 150 women die from this disease in Ontario. Cervical cancer is preventable with regular screening.

Ask your healthcare provider about a PAP test today
