Screening

Doctor and patient interacting

Cancer screening saves lives. Screening can help identify cancer early, before symptoms can be seen or felt. When found early, treatment is likely to be less invasive and more successful. 

Cancer Screening in Ontario

In the Province of Ontario there are three screening programs: 

Ontario Breast Screening Program

ColonCancerCheck 

Letters to the Public about Cancer Screening

Cancer Care Ontario sends personalize to invite eligible Ontarians to get screened for breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer. They also send letters reminding Ontarians when it's time to get screened again and informing them of their screening test results. The letters encourage Ontarians to speak to their healthcare provider about their screening options and to follow up on their screening test results, if necessary. To learn more about these letters visit Cancer Care Ontario's website.
