Conducting tests when you feel healthy may seem contradictory, but it is an essential step in diagnosing certain cancers. Indeed, the onset of cancer is often a long journey that often takes place in silence for years before it manifests itself through external signs. The value of screening, where possible, is to identify possible abnormalities during the non-visible phase of the disease, i.e. at an early stage of its development.
Cancer development processes are often variable: each cancer has its own rate of progression, i.e. a spontaneous evolution outside of any intervention.
All these processes have common characteristics, including the existence of this "invisible" evolution phase, which can sometimes last several decades. Between HPV infection and the onset of cervical cancer, it can take more than 10 years. This allows time to interrupt the sequence of cancer development stages through screening.
The screening examination can lead to several results. Generally, no anomalies are detected. It is then sufficient to repeat the screening examination within the time recommended by your doctor and monitor for warning signs in the meantime.
When an abnormality is detected by screening, further investigation is then required to determine whether or not it is cancer. Screening provides indications that may lead to the suspicion of cancer, but it is not a diagnosis.
Additional tests can lead to several results:
• Benign (i.e., non-cancerous) abnormality;
• Precancerous lesion;
• A cancer.
• In the end, only the sampling and microscopic analysis of the cells and tissues concerned can make a reliable diagnosis of cancer and determine its stage of development.
For example, colorectal cancer takes about 10 years for a polyp to become cancerous. Cancer screening allows colorectal cancer to be discovered at a very early stage of its development: it can then be cured in 9 out of 10 cases and with less severe treatments. Screening also allows polyps to be detected and removed before they develop into cancer.
