About Cancer Screening

Checking for cancer (or for conditions that may become cancer) in people who have no symptoms is called screening.

Screening can help doctors find and treat several types of cancer early. Early detection is important because when abnormal tissue or cancer is found early, it may be easier to treat. By the time symptoms appear, cancer may have begun to spread and is harder to treat.

Several screening tests have been shown to detect cancer early and to reduce the chance of dying from that cancer. Screening tests can have false-positive results- the test indicates that cancer may be present even though it is not. False-positive test results can cause anxiety and are usually followed by additional tests and procedures that also have potential harms. Screening tests can have false-negative results- the test indicates that cancer is not present even though it is. False-negative test results may provide false reassurance, leading to delays in diagnosis and possibly causing an individual to put off seeking medical care even if symptoms develop.
