Cancer is no longer a death sentence.  If detected early, it is curable.  Successful treatments have allowed cancer patients to carry on longer and more productive lives.  Today 45% of all cancer patients can be cured. That is why screening for cancer is so vital in combating this disease.  What is screening for cancer? It involves a few simple tests and procedures done to detect common cancers at a very early stage before it spreads thus improving the chance of cure.  They are painless and inexpensive with absolutely no side effects.  No single blood test or urine test can diagnose any cancer.  Screening is not done in a lab.  It’s done by a Doctor who will evaluate your chances of developing disease and based on your risk required tests are prescribed, one for each system that is one for breast cancer, one for colon and stomach cancer, one for cervical cancer and so on.
