WHY you should get screened
Early detection is important
Screening tests are an important part of a healthy lifestyle and provide the best chance of detecting cancer as early as possible. 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 be harder to treat.*
