The American Cancer Society (ACS) recommends that men have a chance to make an informed decision with their health care provider about whether to be screened for prostate cancer.
The decision should be made after getting information about the uncertainties, risks, and potential benefits of prostate cancer screening. Men should not be screened unless they have received this information. The discussion about screening should take place at: Age 50 for men who are at average risk of prostate cancer and are expected to live at least 10 more years.
Age 45 for men at high risk of developing prostate cancer. After this discussion, those men who want to be screened should be tested with the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test. If, after this discussion, a man is unable to decide if testing is right for him, the screening decision can be made by the health care provider, who should take into account the patient’s general health preferences and values. American Cancer Society recommendations for colorectal cancer early detection. People at average risk The American Cancer Society believes that preventing colorectal cancer (and not just finding it early) should be a major reason for getting tested.
Having their polyps found and removed keeps some people from getting colorectal cancer. Tests that have the best chance of finding both polyps and cancer are preferred if these tests are available to you and you are willing to have them.

Final Update Summary: Breast Cancer: Screening - US Preventive Services Task Force. Flowchart k. Idsaats cap. American Cancer Society recommendations for early breast cancer detection in women without breast symptoms. The importance of finding breast cancer early The goal of screening tests for breast cancer is to find it before it causes symptoms (like a lump that can be felt).
Screening refers to tests and exams used to find a disease in people who don’t have any symptoms. Early detection means finding and diagnosing a disease earlier than might have happened if you’d waited for symptoms to start. Breast cancers found during screening exams are more likely to be smaller and still confined to the breast. The size of a breast cancer and how far it has spread are some of the most important factors in predicting the prognosis (outlook) of a woman with this disease. Most doctors feel that early detection tests for breast cancer help save thousands of lives each year, and that many more lives could be saved if even more women and their health care providers took advantage of these tests.
