...Cancer is the 2nd leading cause of death in US after cardiovascular diseases. Breast cancer is the most common cancer of females andaccounts for second leading cause of cancer related deaths in females. Colorectal and cervical cancers are supposed to be 3rd and 4th leading cause of cancer related deaths in females. Screening can reduce mortality from cancer by detecting abnormalities in earlier stages, thus any intervention can be done at an earlier stage when treatment is most often effective. Lack of health insurance serves as a major barrier to cancer screening compliance. Second major factor affecting compliance is awareness or misconceptions about screening programs... Introduction:...

...screening, in the context of medical practice, is the use of easily implemented tests across a population to identify individuals who havea disease. Population screening for cancer is a way of controlling cancer incidence and mortality. Cervical screening in particular is important because cervical cancer is preventable (pre-cancerous cervical cells are detectable) and can be stopped if detected early. The goal of screening examinations for cervical cancer is to find pre-cancerous cells before they develop into actual invasive cancers ("Screening and Early Detection," 2006 ). Early detection and treatment prevents 75 percent of cervical cancer cases from developing ("NHS Cervical," 2006... Population...

In Canada it is the second most fatal type of cancer ( Colon Cancer Check, Ontario, January 2011) It begins with the growth of small polyps which can bleed and which in time can both cause cancer and narrowing of the lumen. The cancers can also spread to other parts of the body. The incidence of the condition rises after the age of 50. Dr Dennis Lee (1996) lists a number of possible causes. These include family history, a high fat diet and a history of ulcerative colitis. Lee states that it is thought that the breakdown...
