Cancer screening

In Finland, mass screening is organised for breast cancer and cervical cancer. Some municipalities also organise screening for bowel cancer. Women and men of a certain age are invited to screening tests at regular intervals. Screening can reveal cancer or a precancerous condition at an early stage, making the treatment easier and improving the prognosis. The screening tests are free of charge and voluntary.
