Cancer Screening Guidance

People of the 2SLGBTQI+ community are more likely to face barriers trying to access screening for common cancers and are more likely to experience adverse health outcomes as a result. We hope to create a safe space for members of this community so they have equitable access to cancer screening. 


Words matter. We use the 2SLGBTQI+ abbreviation but recognize this may not capture the full community or identify a person's unique identity. Likewise, some of the language used when discussing medical terminology such as ‘breast’ instead of ‘chest’ may not resonate for everyone.  We are always looking for areas to improve our interaction with the community - should you have any comments, please reach out to us via our Contact Form.  

This information is meant to be educational. These are guidelines only; please schedule an appointment for specific questions and other recommendations based on your personal history.
