Mammograms, Pap Smear, and Prostate Exam

Mammograms scan for breast cancer, pap smear is testing for cancer of the canal of the cervix, and prostate exam to diagnose testicular cancer.

Why to get regular exams?

Regular mammograms have been shown to lower the risk of dying from breast cancer by 35% in women. Regular pap smears help prevent cervical cancer, the school leading cancer for women. Regular prostate exams prevent testicular cancer, to treat at the earliest time. All of them are better to be found out sooner than later.
