What are the benefits of screening early for breast cancer?

Early detection: The earlier breast cancers are caught, the more likely they can be cured. Screening mammograms starting at age 40 can save 1 life for every 450-1000 mammograms done (depending on the study.) screening detects breast cancer at an early stage.

When your gyn checks you for an ovarian cyst and then asks you to take a blood test for ca-125. Is that a bad sign?

CA 125 - Why check?: Cancer antigen 125 (ca-125) is not a screening test for ovarian cancer. It is an adjunctive test for measuring tumor response (ie, a tumor marker) for pts w/ known ovarian cancer. It isn't perfect even when we know someone has ovarian cancer. In the appropriate clinical setting -- eg an abnormal ovary on imaging it might help determine if a mass is benign or malignant, but again is not perfect.
