Why Order Cancer Lab Tests Online?
Cancer screening tests can detect cancer before any symptoms are present. These lab tests can identify cancer in an early stage, which increases the chance of successful treatment. According to the National Cancer Institute, approximately 38.5 percent of Americans will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes. An estimated 1,688,780 Americans will be diagnosed with cancer in 2017, and there will be 600,920 cancer deaths. These numbers serve as a stark reminder of the importance of cancer screening as a part of a solid preventive healthcare plan.

When should I start getting screened for cancer?
The answer to that question depends largely on your personal circumstances. For instance, if you have personal risk factors for cancer, such as a family history of certain cancers, genetic disorders that increase your risk or lifestyle factors that make cancer more likely, you will need cancer screening more often than a person with average risk levels. The American Cancer Society offers general guidelines on cancer screening in adults beginning at age 21. Their recommendations for people with average levels of cancer risk are as follows:
- Colon cancer screening – Both men and women should start getting screened for colon cancer at age 50.
- Prostate cancer screening – Risk for prostate cancer begins to rise around age 50, so this is prime time to begin regular screenings for this cancer type.
- Cervical cancer screening – All women aged 21 and over should be screened for cervical cancer regularly. Screening recommendations are a pap test every three years, or a pap test and HPV test every 5 years.
- Breast cancer screening – Women should be screened for breast cancer once yearly, beginning at age 40 to 45.
- Lung cancer screening – Men and women with a history of smoking should be screened for lung cancer once a year after age 55.
People who are at increased risk for cancer due to a family history of cancer, certain genetic disorders and health conditions, or other serious risk factors typically need earlier and/or more frequent screening than the average person, and may require a screening for more cancer types. For that reason, it is important to look to your personal healthcare provider for help in deciding which cancer screening tests you should be having regularly and when you should begin those screenings.
