Screening examinations and check ups can flag up diseases before the problems or symptoms have actually started.
Screening examinations for cancer in particular can detect precursor lesions at an early stage. These can then be removed before the cancer sets in. Malignant diseases can be effectively prevented in this way. By contrast, in the context of early detection programmes, these so-called malignant diseases are detected in the early stages when they can still be cured.
