What are the screening & testings that you may need?
Screening (Imaging) Tests (7, 76)
Screening tests are either done by an imaging process or visually conducted by a specialized professional. These tests are typically set up on a regular basis with your medical team and are typically noninvasive and vary by age, family history, and environment. Cancer screenings aim to detect cancer before symptoms appear. Screening tests results are not 100% foolproof. If signs of cancer are detected, more definition and invasive follow-up tests may be required.
