In brief: Regular Screening

Early cancers can be detected by timely screening per recommended guidelines.
Screening programs have the potential to detect early cancers and impact survival for patients. Standard screening- mammograms for breast cancer, pap smears for cervical cancer, colonoscopy for colorectal cancers, psa & rectal exam for prostate need to be implemented through your doctors.
