At York Against Cancer, we believe that cancer prevention is just as important as cancer treatment. Cancer screening can be the first step toward this.
Screening involves diagnostic tests to identify people who may have an increased risk of developing cancer, or may have early stages. These people often have no symptoms, so screening is hugely important and can make a life-changing impact.
The sessions may, in some cases, lead to earlier detection of common cancers. This can result in more effective treatment and a longer life expectancy, while reducing the risks of adverse effects.
Cancer screening UK programmes
At present, there are three main government-funded screening programmes. You can find out more on the NHS screening guidelines.
