Often, cancers begin with no warning signs or symptoms. To find cancer at an early stage when it is most treatable, you should follow your physician’s recommended screening guidelines. If you have a family history of certain cancers or are a regular smoker, your doctor may recommend starting screenings earlier and having them more frequently.
Talk to your primary care physician about when you should have your cancer screenings. If you need help finding a primary care physician, please call (800) 737-7900.
