Detection & Prevention

Early detection is one of the most powerful weapons we have against cancer. Effective screening plays a valuable role and can dramatically increase the chance of finding some cancers at a point when treatment options can be effective and the outcome is positive. Screening is not possible or practical for all cancers, but for those that can be detected with screening, it can be lifesaving. If certain cancers run in your family, or if you have certain other risk factors, your doctor may recommend screenings on a regular basis.
