Like going to the dentist or changing the oil in your car, cancer screening should be a regular part of your life. Screening tests are used before a person has any symptoms to help find cancer early, when it may be easier to treat.
Talking to loved ones about what they can do to stay healthy isn’t always easy. Here are a few prompts to start the important conversation about cancer screening.
- I care about you and your health. Are you getting regular cancer screening tests?
- Did you know there are tests that can catch changes in your body before they become cancer?
- My breast/colorectal/cervical cancer screening is coming up soon. Have you scheduled yours yet?
- Regular cancer screening is important. Is there anything I can do to help you get screened, like get information, schedule an appointment, or help with childcare or transportation?
