    An Introduction to Diagnostics and Screening

    Early detection of tumours is essential to increase the likelihood of complete remission. Screening strategies are not without risk; for example, mammography and prostate-specific antigen screening can lead to the detection of indolent lesions and subsequent overtreatment. Precision medicine has improved screening and diagnostic approaches; tumour-typing of breast tumours for oestrogen receptor, progesterone receptor, and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 has informed treatment options. Many non-invasive diagnostic tools can be used directly at the point of care. It is hoped that advances in the genomic classification may lead to the identification of high-risk individuals in other types of cancer.
