Why Get Screened for Cancer?
Regular screening is important in preventing cancer. The sooner an abnormality can be detected, the better the success of treatment. The recommended age to begin screening depends on the type of cancer and the individual’s risk factors. Many cancers do not cause symptoms in their early stages so it is important to perform regular screenings.
