Early detection

Why Early Detection?

Most cancers are curable when caught in stage one.

Say it with us: Early detection saves lives. When cancer is found early, your chance of survival and quality of life is significantly higher. Also, the cost of treatment is two to four times less expensive when cancer is diagnosed at an early stage.
