Women’s Cancer screening tests help to find cancer or pre-cancerous areas early. Sometimes these tests find things so before you may even have symptoms. Research has shown that cancer treatments are the most successful when cancer is found early.

You should see your primary care provider (PCP) every year for a “wellness” check-up. During this visit, your provider may screen you for some cancers, will talk with you about your family cancer history, and if you have any genetic mutations that put you at a higher risk for some cancers. This will help your provider plan for when and how often you need to have cancer screenings.

During your routine dental exams, your dentist should look at your mouth and tongue for any changes. This is an oral cancer screening.

You should be screened for breast, cervical, colorectal, and skin cancers. Your provider may also screen you for thyroid and uterine (endometrial) cancer depending on personal/family history or the presence of a known genetic syndrome. If you are a smoker or have a history of smoking, your provider may want you to have lung cancer screening.

Frequently asked questions.

Ans: Women Cancer Screening tests can help find cancer at an early stage, before symptoms appear. When abnormal tissue or cancer is found early, it may be easier to treat or cure. By the time symptoms appear, the cancer may have grown and spread. This can make the cancer harder to treat or cure.

Ans: All women at average risk should start testing at age 45, so talk to your health care provider if you haven’t started yet. There are several testing options. Talk with a health care provider about which tests are best for you and how often testing should be done.

Ans: Cumulative exposure to ultraviolet radiation is the major risk factor associated with skin cancers that are not melanoma. The risk factors for melanoma are somewhat more varied; again, sun exposure (especially a history of severe sunburns sustained in childhood and teenage years), the use of tanning beds, and having certain types of moles all contribute. You should discuss your circumstances with your health care provider to determine whether and how often a thorough skin examination should be done.

Ans: An effective cancer screening test is one that has been validated in well-conducted studies and shown to help lower the likelihood of a tested person dying from cancer. Screening tests are most effective when a certain type of cancer is common within a particular community or within a group that is at particularly high risk of developing that cancer.
