Pros and Cons of Screening

At Check4Cancer we are keen that you have as many facts as possible before making the decision to undergo early detection cancer screening. We hope that you will find the table of pros and cons of cancer screening below a useful tool in coming to that decision.

Pros Cons
  • Cancer screening may give you an indication of cancer before any symptoms develop.
  • Cancer screening may find cancer at an early stage when treatment is more likely to be curative.
  • If cancer is diagnosed at an earlier stage, treatment is more likely to be successful.
  • Cancer screening can miss a number of cancers and provide false reassurance: no cancer screening test is 100% accurate. 
  • Cancer screening can lead to unnecessary worry and investigations when there is no cancer present.
  • A positive screening result may cause anxiety by diagnosing a slow-growing tumour that may never cause any harm or symptoms.
