Importance Of Cancer Screening!

Scientists are constantly devising tests in order to detect cancers before the signs and symptoms are seen. These tests are known as screening tests. The objective of a screening test is:

1. reduce the number of people who will die from the disease (eliminate deaths due to cancer)
2. reduce the development of cancer

Each cancer has its own different kind of screening tests. Not all screening tests are effective but they do give a general idea.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
