Because of many years of cancer research,
many forms of cancer are now treatable. However, one of the most
important factors in treating many forms of cancer is to catch it
early. Failing to diagnose the cancer can often rob a person of their
opportunity to recover from cancer. As such, it is important to be
aware of what you need to do to detect cancer. It is also important to
accurately communicate with your medical professionals to make sure that
they are aware of any new symptoms that you may have as well as that
they have performed all reasonable and necessary screenings on you.

Skin Cancer -
Make sure that you inspect your skin on a regular basis for new
