What is cancer screening...
“Screening” means testing for a disease when you have no symptoms, using imaging or chemical means. "Cancer screening” finds out if there are cancerous or precancerous cells in a given part of your body.
…and why should we do it?
The reason for screening is simple: it can save lives. By catching a cancer early, doctors have a much better chance of treating it successfully than if the cancer is allowed to grow until it is felt by the patient.
