Cancer screenings provide doctors with valuable information about possible health risks associated with many different types of cancers, including those of the breast, prostate, and ovary. During a cancer screening, the doctor evaluates many different biomarkers and other indicators that begin to show patterns of possible risk when it comes to certain types of cancer. Doctors can look at these identifiers and gage a person's risk of determining these different kinds of cancer. By identifying potential risks, doctors can help patients to be proactive and live a healthier lifestyle.

If a cancer becomes too far advanced, the treatment options may become limited, especially if the cancer has started to spread. When cancer is found in its earliest stages, less aggressive treatment options may be effective in controlling or eliminating the cancer all together. The duration of treatment may also be decreased and the person is allowed to resume their normal schedule must faster. Catching cancer before it has a chance to do spread is extremely important, especially when it comes to developing an effective treatment plan.
