Effective Cancer Screening Tests
Cancer screening tests aim to find cancer early, before it causes symptoms and when it may be easier to treat successfully. Effective screening tests are those that:
- Find cancer early
- Reduce the chance that someone who is screened regularly will die from the cancer
- Have more potential benefits than harms.
This is important as it is one of the first actions taken to prevent disease. Furthermore, patients whose cancer is detected early on possess a higher chance of cured disease, complete recovery, increased quality of life and longevity.
Types of Gynaecological Cancer
Cervical cancer is a type of cancer that occurs in the cells of the cervix (lower part of the uterus that connects to the vagina). Various strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted infection, play a role in causing most cervical cancer.
You can reduce your risk of developing cervical cancer by the standard screening test for cervical cancer is a Pap smear and receiving a vaccine that protects against HPV infection.
Endometrial (uterine) cancer
Often detected at an early stage because it frequently produces abnormal vaginal bleeding. If endometrial cancer is discovered early, removing the uterus surgically often cures endometrial cancer.
Ovarian cancer is when abnormal cells in the ovary begin to multiply out of control and form a tumour. If left untreated, the tumour can spread to other parts of the body. This is called metastatic ovarian cancer.
Breast cancer is the most common invasive cancer in females. It is also a leading cause of cancer deaths among females. Breast cancer is a type of cancer that starts in the breast. Cancer starts when cells begin to grow out of control. Breast cancer cells usually form a tumour that can often be seen on an x-ray or felt as a lump. Breast cancer occurs almost entirely in women, but men can get breast cancer, too.
What are the methods for early cancer detection?
Clinical breast exams
Is a physical examination of the breast done by a health professional. Clinical breast examinations are used along with mammograms to check women for breast cancer. Clinical breast examinations are also used to check for other breast problems
Used in diagnosing cancer may include a computerized tomography (CT) scan, Mammogram, bone scan, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET) scan, ultrasound and X-ray, among others.
During a biopsy, your doctor collects a sample of cells for testing in the laboratory.
Pap test and human papillomavirus (HPV) testing
These tests, which can be used both alone and in combination, can lead to both early detection and prevention of cervical cancer.
This blood test, which is often done together with a transvaginal ultrasound, may be used to try to detect ovarian cancer early, especially in women with an increased risk of the disease.
What is the importance of early detection in cancer prevention treatment and survival?
Initial diagnosis expands cancer outcomes by providing care at the earliest possible stage and is then increase survivor rate.
How often should I go to my doctor for a check-up?
You should have a physical check-up annually which should include a clinical breast exam and pelvic exam. When any uncommon signs or changes in your breasts happen before your next assigned visit, do not wait to contact your doctor. Your doctor might recommend that you watch to see if the abnormality continues through your next menstrual period or they might recommend a diagnostic mammogram or ultrasound be done.
When to start screening?
All people at average risk should start testing at age 45.
