Why should we take screening for cancer?

Cancer diseases are dangerous and cannot be treated completely while the death from cancer is still on the rise.

It is considered that cancer means death for some cases because most of them are detected too late to be treated. The current methods mainly focus on suppressing the attack of cancer cells but not completely kill them.

However as it is, detecting cancer in early stage might make treatment much easier. Therefore screening tests supported by specific methods and advanced technology are extremely important, helping patients find the abnormalities before they cause symptoms or find cancer early when the tumor is small and hasn’t spread to surrounding organs.

Thanks to regular screening, specialists could find growths and remove them before they turn into cancer or develop in next stage. As statistics, on basic of each case, early detecting and treatment might increase the effectiveness of treatment to 60-100%. This is the reason why doctors advises patients to take screening tests for cancer each year.
