Cancer Detection Clinic
The Columbiana County Health Department's Cancer Detection Clinic was established in 1965 and is funded by grants, donations and a local 10-year tax levy that was voter supported in 1980, 1990, 2000 and 2010.
The clinic provides quality health care, screenings, education, referrals for follow-up, and a reminder/recall system for Columbiana county health district residents. The cities of Salem and East Liverpool do not participate in cancer detection clinic levy and therefore services are not available to city residents. City residents and residents outside the general health district are encouraged to routinely see their individual health care provider for cancer screenings and consultation.
The clinic provides patient navigation services that assists all residents (residing in the general health district and those outside the general health district), with finding services and resources available to them.
Clinic services include:
- PAP Tests and Pelvic Exams
- Skin Cancer Screening
- PSA Screenings for Prostate Cancer
- Mammography (financial assistance available)
Men and women access these services through self-referral.
- Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in non smokers. Radon is a class “A” carcinogen. Free home testing kits are available at Columbiana County Health Department. To learn more about Radon in homes and to receive information on how to receive a free testing kit refer to the health department's Environmental Section.
