When breast cancer is found early, it is easier to treat. Regular mammogram screening tests are the best way to detect breast cancer early. According to the CDC, breast cancer’s 5-year relative survival rate is 99% when detected early and in the localized stage.
Early detection is essential to beating breast cancer. Get a mammogram every year from age 40 to 54. Women 55 and older can switch to every other year or keep getting yearly mammograms. If you are due for a mammogram, get one today.
Cancer doesn’t wait, so talk to your doctor today about getting screened.
Regular screening for cervical cancer with HPV and Pap tests is essential for early detection and prevention. Cervical cancer is highly treatable when detected in its early stages, and the survival rates are significantly higher compared to late-stage diagnoses
By detecting HPV infections or abnormal cervical cells early through screening, your healthcare provider can initiate appropriate interventions, such as further testing or treatment, to prevent cervical cancer progression. This early detection can increase the chances of successful treatment, long-term survival, and improved outcomes.
Ask your provider how frequently you should be getting screened for cervical cancer.
Lung cancer is second only to skin cancer as the most common type of cancer in the U.S. The best way to reduce your risk of lung cancer is to not smoke and to avoid secondhand smoke.
But if you do smoke or used to, lung cancer screenings are recommended even if you don’t have any signs of symptoms. This is because if lung cancer is found at an earlier stage, it’s more likely to be treated successfully. In fact, the 5-year relative survival rate when non-small cell lung cancer is localized and detected early is 65%.
Talk to your doctor to find out if a lung cancer screening is right for you.
Regular check-ups help prevent cancer by finding changes in your body and improving outcomes. Early detection means less treatment and less time spent recovering.
