Allergy Testing Q & A
Why do I have allergies?
What are the symptoms of allergies?
The exact symptoms you experience with allergies depends on the type of allergen you’ve been exposed to. Some allergens affect your respiratory system, while others mainly affect your skin or digestive system. Some common signs of an allergic reaction include the following:
· Coughing and wheezing
· Runny nose
· Itchy, watery eyes
· Breathing problems if your airway swells
What kinds of allergens are there?
· Outdoor allergens, such as pollen, ragweed, and grass
· Pet dander
· Dust mites
· Certain foods, such as peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, or soy
· Insect stings

Breast Cancer Screening
Breast cancer screening means checking a woman’s breasts for cancer before there are signs or symptoms of the disease. Our team of clinicians will inform you about the best screening options for you. When you are told about the benefits and risks of screening and decide with our clinical team whether screening is right for you—and if so, when to have it—this is called informed and shared decision-making.
Although breast cancer screening cannot prevent breast cancer, it can help find breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat. Talk to your doctor about which breast cancer screening tests are right for you, and when you should have them.
The Pap test can find abnormal cells in the cervix which may turn into cancer. The HPV test looks for the virus (human papillomavirus) that can cause these cell changes. Pap tests also can find cervical cancer early, when the chance of being cured is very high.
Colorectal (Colon) Cancer
Colorectal cancer almost always develops from precancerous polyps (abnormal growths) in the colon or rectum. Screening tests can find precancerous polyps, so they can be removed before they turn into cancer. Screening tests also can find colorectal cancer early, when treatment works best.
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends yearly lung cancer screening with low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) for people who have a history of heavy smoking, and smoke now or have quit within the past 15 years and are between 55 and 80 years old.
