Cancer Screening Package for Male in Aurangabad
Cancer is the uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells throughout the body. It can develop in any part of the body and spread to other parts via the bloodstream or lymphatic system. Cancer can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetic mutations, exposure to carcinogens (such as tobacco smoke or radiation), and lifestyle factors (such as a poor diet or lack of exercise). Cancer screening helps to detect early signs of cancer before any symptoms appear. Early detection of cancer is essential because it can potentially save your life. Many cancers, such as lung, prostate, testicular and oral cancer, respond better to treatment when detected early. The earlier cancer is detected and treated, the better your chances of full recovery and survival.
The aim of cancer screening is to detect tumour growth in its initial stages before the onset of any significant symptoms. Regular cancer screening can detect cancer before symptoms appear, allowing for earlier treatment and better outcomes. For example, regular prostate cancer screening involving PSA tests can detect prostate cancer in its early stages when it is most treatable.
