Types of Screening.
Generally, the fear and not knowing what to expect is the main cause we forgo the screening all together. With so many different types of cancer, what will be the ultimate testing that first timers should get tested? What are this screening and how is the entire process of screening for each of this. Generally, how long their waiting process after the test would be and how do we elimnate the fear of 'not knowing is better'. How often should this test be repeated. For the benefit of those in India, what will be the best places to get this test done with minimal cost (should financially someone could not afford it).
