CANCER SCREENING

If you are diagnosed with cancer, it not only affects you, but it also has a detrimental effect on your family and loved ones. Early detection can reduce the intensity of the treatment and the impact it has on yourself and your loved ones.

CANCER SCREENING GUIDELINES

There are national guidelines that you should follow, for when you should be screened for cancer.  Recent observations suggest that people from a South Asian background may develop cancer at an earlier age than the general population.  Early cancer screening should be discussed with your doctor.
