Screening exams are simply medical tests done when you’re healthy. It’s like taking a car in for a tune up. You want to make sure you’re keeping a close check on your body at recommended ages for screenings.
Those ages may vary depending on your family history. Talk to your doctor about your family’s history of cancer and your personal health history. Both play a major role in deciding what screenings may be best for you. Learn about Markey Cancer Center's screening program »
