Summary: Cancer screening involves simple tests that look for early signs of cancer, or the conditions that cause cancer. Screening tests can find cancer before you can see or feel any changes to your body. When you find cancer early, it is easier to treat successfully. This fact sheet summerises the three different screening processes for breast- bowel and cervical cancer.
