Most cancers become more prevalent as people age – the vast majority are diagnosed in people over 60. Unfortunately, too many cancers are still diagnosed late. With modern treatments and surgical techniques, early detection can often make a significant difference to the outcome.
Cancer screening, as part of a preventative screening package is a recognised part of modern medicine. Advances in technology and medical science mean that signs of disease or other health issues can be detected much earlier than before. Action can be taken at an early stage with potential opportunity to improve quality of life.
