How it works


Cancer screening tests aim to find cancer before it causes symptoms and when it may be easier to treat successfully. 

An effective screening test is one that

  •  Finds cancer early
  • Reduces the chance that someone who is screened regularly will die from the cancer
  • Has more potential benefits than harms (possible harms of screening tests include bleeding or other physical damage, false-positive or false-negative test results, and overdiagnosis—the diagnosis of cancers that would not have caused problems and did not need treatment)

Causes of Cancer

Tobacco use, alcohol consumption, unhealthy diet, physical inactivity and air pollution are risk factors for cancer and other noncommunicable diseases. Some chronic infections are risk factors for cancer; this is a particular issue in low- and middle-income countries.

Cancer can also be hereditary.​
