Our expert says:
1. Cervical cancer can be detected by having a papsmear done on an anual basis.
2. Breast cancer can be detected by self-examination (first line of detection). Regular doctor's consultation, as well as mammograms and ultrasounds of your breast every five years is necessary.
3. Blood tests are available to screen for colon cancer, i.e. CEA test.
4. Regular visits to your doctor, as well as computer mole screens can detect skin cancer.
