Is it time to begin cancer screening?
Cancer screening sees what you can't, and is proven to save lives by detecting pre-cancerous changes or cancer at an early stage.
Did you know?
Assess your risk
The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care created the ‘Time to Screen’ tool to make cancer screening more accessible. The simple and quick online tool gives Ontarians an introduction to cancer screening without a doctor’s appointment.
The Time to Screen tool assesses your risk based on your age, gender and family history. From there, you are guided to specific information about the type(s) of cancer you may be at risk for, and what the screening techniques are for each. Remember, cancer screening saves lives.
