Dr. Cudjoe performs several cancer screenings, assessing your risk for cancers like:
Dr. Cudjoe also offers comprehensive testing for osteoporosis, a bone disease that occurs due to a loss of bone mass. For any diagnostic screening, you must come into the McKinney, Texas clinic. Dr. Cudjoe doesn’t perform screenings during home visits.
Dr. Cudjoe carefully evaluates your family history of cancer to determine your risk. She also performs a full physical, checking for early signs of cancer or other abnormalities. If she determines you’re at increased risk for cancer, Dr. Cudjoe may perform cancer screenings and can refer you to a specialist for further treatment.
For instance, in colorectal screenings, Dr. Cudjoe can perform in-office blood work then refer you for a colonoscopy for further testing. If you’re a smoker, Dr. Cudjoe may recommend lung cancer screenings to assess your lung health.
Breast examinations and Pap smears are also available in the McKinney office. Dr. Cudjoe manually examines your breasts and may recommend a mammogram if she detects any abnormalities, or if you’re over 40 or have a family history of cancer. Pap smears involve collecting cervical cells during a pelvic exam. Abnormal Pap smear results may require additional testing.
For prostate and testicular cancer screenings, Dr. Cudjoe can perform in-office blood tests and may refer you to a urologist for further treatment.
Dr. Cudjoe may recommend a bone density test to screen for osteoporosis, a condition that can lead to weakened bones that fracture or break easily.
Bone densitometry (DEXA) is a noninvasive test considered to be the most accurate for diagnosing osteoporosis. It involves a series of enhanced X-rays that are useful in determining how much mineral remains in your bones, especially, your spine, hip, and wrist. The test is painless and noninvasive.
If you need additional treatment or testing for cancer or osteoporosis, Dr. Cudjoe can work with you every step of the way to ensure you're receiving the care you need.
