WORLD CANCER DAY 2023
All around us, we all have at the very least, one person who we have lost to cancer. A significant number of these cases if could have ,most probably ,been salvaged and saved , if detected early
Today being world cancer day, is another opportunity to emphasize that “early detection saves lives”.
As with regular self-health examination, there are screenings for some cancer types that everyone should be aware of and pay attention to.
Screening is any type of test that is performed to detect the presence/intending presence or confirm the non-existence of a disease condition in a human body.
The goal of screening is to treat any condition, if detected, at a very early stage before it becomes full blown. This if done reduces mortality rate very significantly and as we say it and truthfully so, early detection saves lives!
Beyond these screenings, it is also very important to find out from the healthcare provider if one has a higher-than-average type of risk for cancers (and other disease conditions) basically because of family history, genetic disorders etc.
There are other types of tests that can be used to detect cancer in people who either have symptoms or to evaluate the possibility of a re-occurrence in people who have been previously diagnosed. But these would usually be recommended by a doctor. They are not typically routine screenings.
Your healthcare may recommend more frequent screening if he sees a need for them.
Get screened.Early detection saves lives!
