What Is Cancer Screening?
   Appropriate cancer screening should
lead to early detection of asymptomatic
or unrecognized disease by the
application of acceptable, inexpensive
tests or examinations in a large number
of persons.
 The main objective of cancer
screening is to reduce morbidity
and mortality from a particular
cancer among persons screened.

Breast Cancer Screening
          Statistical Data

 In Saudi Arabia, 600 new breast cancer
patients registered annually according to
the national registry.

  In the United States, 211,300 new
invasive cases of breast cancer with
39,800 deaths due to the disease were
estimated to have occurred in the year

  Annual screening should start approximately
3    years after the onset of sexual activity, at
least by age 21 years.

  Screening at Less frequent interval(2-
3years): After normal three consecutive annual
cervical   cytology   and   negative HPV    DNA

  Screening at 6 months interval: In high-risk

  In Saudi Arabia; colorectal cancer constitutes
11% of all malignant tumors in people above 40
years of age. It is considered the fourth cause of
cancer death in the Kingdom.
   In the United States; colorectal carcinoma is the
third leading cause of death from cancer in both
males and females. Approximately 57,100 deaths
were predicted for colon and rectum cancers
combined in 2003. More recent; an estimated

Prostate Cancer Screening

 Allover the world , 8.6% of men above 50 years of
age were affected annually with cancer prostate.

 In Saudi Arabia, prostate cancer constitutes 5.3% of
all malignant tumors affecting men.

 Prostate cancer was found to be the most commonly
diagnosed cancer among men in the United States
and is the second leading cause of male cancer
deaths. It is estimated that in 2003; 220,900 new
cases of prostate cancer were identified, with 28,900

   Randomized Clinical Trials
  The American NCI-funded PLCO trial is a 16-year
randomized control study that began in 1993. It is accruing
74,000 men aged 60 to 74 years and has a design power of
90% to determine 20% reduction of prostate cancer
mortality (final results are expected in 2009).
  In a review of published data from five prospective trials,
treatment of localized disease was associated with a marked
decrease in prostate cancer deaths*. Thus, strong evidence
shows improved prognosis for screen-detected cases.

  The European Randomized Study of Screening for Prostate
Cancer, is being conducted in eight European countries with
men aged 55 to 74 years at entry; there are approximately
180,000 participants. Results from these trials are expected
in 2008.

  PSA test and DRE should be offered annually,
beginning at age 50 years , to men who have a life
expectancy of at least 10 years.
  Men at high risk (African Americans and those with
a first-degree relative diagnosed with prostate
cancer) screening should be offered at an earlier age
(40-45 years old).
   Prior to testing, physicians should discuss with their
patients the potential benefits of early prostate
cancer detection so that patients can make an
informed decision about undergoing screening.
Lung Cancer Screening

cancer among asymptomatic
individuals     at     elevated
risk due to smoking history or
occupational exposures is not

screening with either chest x-rays or chest x-rays

presentation and increased survival, but neither
approach had any effect on lung cancer mortality*.

efficacious method for early detection of lung cancer.
studies of low-dose CT screening are ongoing , which
will take approximately 10 years to produce results**.

Question remains about the mortality impact and cost

  Latest Recommendation
    The lack of demonstrated benefit
for the older screening approaches
should not be misinterpreted as nihilism
about the early detection of patients
with lung cancer.

    Individuals at risk who present with
symptoms consistent with lung cancer
deserve appropriate evaluation.
Skin Cancer Screening
