CANCER PREVENTION AND SCREENING

Cancer Screening in Jumeirah, Dubai

Cancer Screening Tests. Cancer screening means checking your body for cancer before you have symptoms. Getting cancer screening tests regularly may find breast, cervical, and colorectal (colon) cancers early, when treatment is likely to work best. Lung cancer screening is recommended for some people who are at high risk.

Cancer is the division of abnormal cells away from normal division. The spread of the cancer through lymph and blood makes it a menace to treat, hence the need to prevent and treat it early.

Cancer Prevention and treatment measures

  • Regular screening tests to detect cancer at its early stages. Early detection improves the prognosis of cancer treatment. A regular self-breast examination is encouraged to determine any abnormal lumps. Hospitals offer yearly pap smears to check for abnormal cervical cells in the cervix.
  • Vaccinations help in reducing the chances of developing cancer. The hepatitis B vaccine helps in reducing the risk of liver cancer. Human papillomavirus vaccine is available for women, and it works to help in the prevention of cervical cancer.
  • Healthy living such as taking a balanced diet, regular exercise and regular detoxing helps reduce the chances of cancer cells from thriving in the body.
  • Health care workers need to be trained on ways to detect cancer, hence improving prognosis. Some health workers mistake other health conditions for cancer.
  • Health education on ways to live a full healthy life. This includes teaching the population on the need to take a balanced diet and seek medical care when they feel ill.
  • Below is an American Cancer Society way of noting cancer signs. The acronym is CAUTION. C is change in bowel habits or bladder habits. A is a sore that does not heal.
