ACOG Committee Opinion No. 356: Routine cancer screening.

Author information

  • 1The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, Washington, DC 20090-6920, USA.


Obstetrician-gynecologists serve as primary care physicians for many women. Because the obstetrician-gynecologist may be the only physician providing routine care, clinicians should be able to provide recommendations for routine cancer screenings, including those for nongynecologic cancers. This document summarizes recommendations of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists for routine cancer screening for the average-risk American woman. The obstetrician-gynecologist should discuss both benefits and limitations of screening tests with the patient.
