What to Expect from Cancer Screenings

Jan 30, 2020

Cancer screenings are used as a preventative measure and to detect cancer in people who have no symptoms. Following recommendations from your doctor for cancer screenings can save your life. Often, when cancers are caught early, patients have a better chance of making a full recovery.
