Cancer Screening Versus Diagnostics: What's the Difference?

An early diagnosis may be critical in determining the outcome of a cancer patient’s treatment. While COVID-19 has prompted delayed screenings, we know cancer won’t wait. Statistics show that the earlier your cancer is diagnosed, the better your chances of a more positive outcome.

So how do you know if your screening or a diagnostic appointment can be rescheduled? Learn more from the experts at CTCA®.
