Cancer Screening Guidelines
Cancer screening exams are medical tests done when you’re healthy. And, you don’t have any signs of illness.
The exams you get and how often you’re tested depends on your chances of getting cancer.
Talk to your doctor about your family history of cancer. This information, along with your personal health history, helps your doctor know if you’re more likely to get cancer.
Also, stay familiar with your body. That way you’ll notice changes and report them to your doctor without delay.
