Cancer Care in Macomb, IL

McDonough District Hospital provides outpatient cancer care services—from early diagnostics, full laboratory services, surgery and chemotherapy, to patient and family counseling and educational support.

Cancer Screenings

Each March and April, McDonough District Hospital’s Laboratory Services Department offers free fecal occult blood test kits. This is the first step in detecting colon and rectal cancer and is recommended every year for anyone over the age of 45, or earlier if they have a family history of the disease or symptoms of colorectal cancer. The kit checks for blood in the stool and is completed in the privacy of your home. The results will be sent to you and a follow up with your physician will be recommended if the results are positive. Colorectal cancer is easier to treat and often curable when detected early.

MDH Lab Phone Number: (309) 836-1530 for further details.
