What are screening tests?

The  screening tests  verify the presence of  signs  of illness, like the  breast cancer, before the person has  symptom. The purpose of screening is to find the  Cancer  in a  Stadium  earlier when treatable and perhaps  cure. Cancer that is very small or very slowly growing is sometimes found during screening. These cancers do not usually cause death or illness throughout a person's life.

It is important to remember that if your doctor orders a screening test, it is not always because they think you have cancer. Screening tests are done when there are still no symptoms. Women with a family history or  personal  significant cancer or other  risk factor's  sometimes they are offered a  genetic test.


Tests are used to find different types of cancer when a person has no symptoms.

The  scientists  study the  screening tests  to identify those that cause the least harm and the most benefit. Cancer screening trials also seek to show whether early detection (finding cancer before it develops  symptoms) prolongs a person's life or lowers a person's chance of dying from the disease.

For some types of cancer, the chance of  Recovery  is greater if the disease is found and treated in a  Stadium  early.

Mammography is the most common screening test for breast cancer.

A  mammogram  is a  bone scan  of the  mother. The  mammography  lets find  tumors  which are very small to the touch. Also, sometimes it allows you to find a  ductal carcinoma in situ  (DCIS). In DCIS, the cells  abnormal  they cover the  conduit  of the breast, and in some women it can become  invasive cancer.


Mammography is less likely to find tumors in women with  dense tissue of the breast. Sometimes a tumor is harder to find when the breast tissue is dense because the tumors and dense breast tissue appear white on a mammogram. Younger women's breast tissue is usually dense.
