Scientists have been constantly striving to develop different tests for finding out whether there are any signs or symptoms of cancer. The main aim of cancer screening (preventive) treatment is to reduce the number of individuals who die from cancer and if possible, prevent deaths arising from cancer and also, reduce the number of people who are developing this disease. Each type of cancer has its own cancer screening procedure. For breast cancer screening, your oncologist may recommend you to undergo mammography, which is a specific type of X-ray that aids in viewing the presence of irregularities or tumours in the breast through the images called mammograms. A clinical examination of the breast is performed by an oncologist who looks and feels if there are any changes in the shape or size of the breast and also whether there is any change in the nipples or the skin of the breast. A woman herself may also feel if there is any change in her breasts. The magnetic resonance imaging or MRI is not normally used for screening cancer, though it can be used for women with high risk of breast cancer or women with large lumps in the breast. Another common form of cancer is skin cancer and the skin cancer screening looks for the presence of melanoma, actinic keratosis, atypical nevus, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. According to the American Cancer Society, skin cancer is regarded as the most prevalent cancer type in the United States and therefore, a proper screening will be helpful to diagnose in the early stages and eventually treated effectively.
