Most cancers are preventable if detected early. High-risk habits such as smoking and drinking are contributing factors for cancer. It can also be due to some other factors such as obesity that tend to run in families and influence cancer risk. Some cancers such as breast, ovarian, prostrate and colon are considered hereditary. These high-risk individuals can be identified by clinical evaluation and genetic tests. Targeted screening can identify cancer at pre-cancer or early stage. Besides improving chance for cure it also lowers the side effects related to cancer treatment. Hence, screening needs to be personalized based on clinical examination.
