M. D. Anderson Updates Screening Guidelines With a Focus on Risk

| Comments (0)

Cancer screening examinations are medical tests performed when you're healthy and you don't have any symptoms. They help ensure that any existing cancers are identified at their earliest, most treatable stages.

M. D. Anderson has released updated guidelines for colorectal, cervical and breast cancers. The new recommendations are based on how likely you are to develop a certain kind of cancer. Therese Bevers, M.D., professor in the Department of Clinical Cancer Prevention, explains the basis for these important updates.
