Lack of knowledge

It might seem strange to talk about cancer awareness, but the fact is that roughly 65% of the population does not know that if cancer is detected at an early stage, it increases the chances of treatment being successful by a significant degree. If cancer is not detected until later, it becomes much more difficult to treat successfully. Awareness and prevention are essential.

Just how important is it to raise awareness about early detection for various types of cancer?

According to the National Cancer Institute, screening for cancer “can help doctors find and treat several types of cancer early, before they cause symptoms. Early detection is important because when abnormal tissue or cancer is found early, it may be easier to treat.” Some of the cancer types that can be screened for include the following:

  • Breast cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Cervical cancer
  • Lung cancer

Some of the most common screening methods include the following:

  • Mammograms – Detecting and diagnosing breast cancer early is essential for making the disease easier to treat.
  • Pap Tests – Cervical cancer can be detected early through pap tests that identify abnormal cervical tissue cells.
  • Colonoscopies – When it comes to colon cancer, colonoscopies are vital for identifying polyps that might become cancerous.
  • Low-Dose Computed Tomography – LDCT is the preferred screening method for early signs of lung cancer, particularly for those who smoke or have smoked in the past.
