Cancer Screening and detection

The 2 main key points of early detection of cancer are early diagnosis and screening.

Early diagnosis

Early diagnosis programmes aim by decreasing the proportion of patients who are treated at a late stage. They have 2 main components:

  1. Increase in awareness of first signs of cancer, between physicians, nurses and other health care sources as well as the general public; and
  2. Improved availability and cost effective diagnosis and treatment services, and improved referral from first to secondary and tertiary levels of care.



Screening is used for simple tests, across a healthy population to identify the individuals who have a disease, but do not have any symptoms. Examples like breast cancer a clinical breast exam is performed, and cervical cancer screening using pap smears, human papillomavirus test or visual inspection with acetic acid.
