FINDING CANCERS AT AN EARLY STAGE​

Skin Cancer screening is a vital preventive measure that involves specific tests to identify potential signs of cancer in individuals who do not exhibit any symptoms. These screenings play a crucial role in early detection, enabling prompt intervention and improving treatment outcomes. 

Finding The Signs Early Can Save Lives

Should I be Screened?

Participating in screening is a personal decision. Screening provides details on benefits and risks, allowing you to make an informed choice. Consult your doctor or screening helplines for breast and bowel cancer for further information. Ultimately, choose what feels right for you.

Screening offers the significant advantage of potentially saving lives by detecting cancer early. Early detection enhances the likelihood of successful treatment and improves survival rates. Additionally, certain screenings can prevent cancer by identifying and treating precancerous changes, such as cervical screening detecting and addressing cervix abnormalities before they develop into cancer.

What are the risks?

Although screening is valuable, it can occasionally miss cancers (false negative) or yield abnormal results when cancer is absent (false positive). It’s important to communicate any unusual changes to your doctor, even after recent screening.

False positives can lead to unnecessary worry and additional tests with potential side effects.

Additionally, screening may identify harmless cancers that would not have caused issues (overdiagnosis), resulting in unnecessary treatment. Some screening tests carry risks and side effects such as pain, discomfort, or light bleeding.

How The Screening Process Works

Professional Care from our Pharmacy Team

1) Screening Process

The screening process involves specific tests to detect early signs of cancer or precancerous conditions. These tests may include imaging scans, laboratory analysis of samples, or physical examinations. Screening aims to identify abnormalities that may require further evaluation or treatment. Regular screening can play a crucial role in early detection and improving treatment outcomes.

2) Getting Your Results

Screening results can vary, with the potential for false negatives, where cancer is missed, and false positives, where non-cancerous findings appear abnormal. Abnormal results may necessitate additional tests or evaluations to confirm the presence or absence of cancer. It is essential to follow up with healthcare professionals for proper diagnosis and guidance.

3) Aftercare

At Hayshine Pharmacy, our dedicated team provides personalized aftercare following screening. We offer further diagnostic tests, consultations, or treatment based on your results, ensuring comprehensive care. Count on us to guide and support you, addressing any concerns or questions you may have along the way.
