Cancer screening saves lives. Most deaths from breast, cervical and colon cancer are preventable by having a regular screening test for each disease.
Screening tests help find diseases and health conditions early before you have any symptoms. Finding cancer in its early stages when it is easier to treat leads to better health outcomes.
Screening can prevent:
• 7 out of 10 cases of cervical cancer
• 1 death for every 1000 screened women for breast cancer
• 90 out of 100 deaths from colon cancer
