Screening and Diagnosis

Cancer screening is used to help detect cancer as early as possible. Diagnostic tests are important to confirm if cancer has been found and helps the health care team determine the most appropriate treatment plan.


Screening tests help find some types of cancer before you have any symptoms. They are intended to be part of your regular medical care.
