Screening is a way of detecting any abnormalities and catching them early. In many cases it can prevent cancer from developing in the first place.
The UK offers 3 different types of screening programmes for all eligible people. Breast Screening, Cervical Screening and Bowel Screening. If you are eligible you will be contacted and invited automatically.
