Cheat Sheet for Women's Cancer Screenings and Good Health


CDC supports screening for breast, cervical, colorectal (colon), and lung cancers as recommended by the U.S.Preventive Services Task Force. This “cheat sheet” lists the different types of cancer screenings that are available to women. But remember, there’s more to your health than just cancer screenings. Yearly well-woman exams give you the opportunity to talk to your doctor about your family health history, and ask about tests you may need for other diseases or conditions such as diabetes, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, or cholesterol.
