Cancer screening advice

Posted Apr 23 2009 3:50pm
Dr. Kevin Pho offers the opinion that not all cancer screening tests lead to better cancer treatment:

Here's a excerpt: "As much as we'd like to believe that early detection automatically leads to better care, that is not always the case. There cannot be a one-size-fits-all approach. Persuasive arguments can be made for and against screening, and the decision is a highly personal one. But patients must be better informed of the potential consequences either choice can bring."

Your thoughts?
