No more pain of regular screening for cancer in Elders

These tests can now be performed in acute cases, where continuous screening is necessary. The need for the tests of breast, cervical, prostate and colorectal cancer, decreases with the age of the patient and thus should be at the discretion of the patient itself to undergo the screening.

For instance, the studies explain that young people do not have much of the risk of certain cancers such as prostate cancer and thus, youngsters must avoid regular screening. On the other side, screening at regular intervals, benefits to prolong life expectancy by detecting any illness at a correct stage. However, for elders who have already lived a healthy life need not spend so much on these tests.

The best solution to this would be to check your family history of cancer patients. If there has been cases of cancer in your family, then the doctors would suggest you to undergo these tests every 4 to 5 years.

The MD of the University of North Carolina – Ronald C. Chen said; “These results raise concerns about over screening in these individuals, which not only increases healthcare expenditures but can lead to patient net harm.”
