Many people are worried about a family history of cancer, lifestyle choices which may place them at risk, or infections such as HPV causing cancer. At Health Screening Clinic, we have over 30 years’ experience in helping our patients who suspect they may have cancer. Our health screening programmes have caught cancer early in some patients, allowing early diagnosis and improving their long-term outcomes. The same screening programmes have also excluded cancer in some patients, alleviating health anxiety and allowing patients to plan securely for their future.
With over 200 different types of cancer, there isn’t a single test that can screen the whole body to diagnose a tumour, therefore it’s important to undergo regular health screenings, so that you have a better idea of your general health, allowing you to act when something doesn’t seem right. As mentioned earlier, cancers are often very dependent upon the lifestyle and background of the patient. To reflect this, our Cancer Screening programme is patient-centric. This means that the tests and investigations that you will undergo will be decided with the doctor during your initial consultation, based on your medical history and after the benefit of a full medical examination.
Once you have agreed a screening programme with your doctor, he will perform the necessary tests, and, if requested, will arrange a follow-up appointment to discuss the results with you. If a diagnosis is made, we will help manage the next steps through our network of Clinics and Specialists. We strongly recommend patients wishing to undergo Cancer Screening, elect for the Advanced or Elite MOT options, for the most comprehensive level of testing to accompany their Cancer specific testing, however if you have specific requirements, please don’t hesitate to get in touch today for a bespoke screening option.
