Whole Body Screening
Cancer screening aims to detect cancer before it appears. Getting screening tests regularly may find breast,cervical, and colorectal (colon) cancers early, when treatment is likely to work best.For a few cancers, studies show screening tests ca,brn save lives by diagnosing cancer early.
Diagnosing cancer at its earliest stages often provides the best chance for a cure. With this in mind, talk with your doctor about what types of cancer screening may be appropriate for you.

Detectable diseases with screening
Whole body MRI screening from head to Knee in order to find tumours, any lesions, inflammation or obstructive processes in the body. In the head, the exam shows brain masses, shrinkage, old strokes, the sinuses and nasal cavities if any. In the neck, abnormalities in the lymph nodes, thyroid masses or arthritis in the cervical spine can be identified. In the chest, tumours, any abnormal growth, and the aorta for aneurysms. Moving to the abdomen, we can observe the pelvis area, the kidneys, liver, spleen, adrenal glands, gallbladder (gallstones), pancreas, bladder, uterus, ovaries and prostate for tumours, obstruction or inflammation. We can tailor images of the spine to show the spinal canal, disc herniation, and spinal stenosis; and in the extremities, arthritis in the joints. Additional exams of a specific area may be required if a problem is identified in order to obtain more detailed information.
Lung cancer,a malignant lung tumour characterized by uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung.. This growth can spread beyond the lung by the process of metastasis into nearby tissue or other parts of the body. Most cancers that start in the lung, known as primary lung cancers, are carcinomas. The most common symptoms are coughing ,weight loss, shortness of breath, and chestpains.
Colon cancer , a type of cancer that begins in the large intestine (colon). The colon is the final part of the digestive tract.Colon cancer typically affects older adults, though it can happen at any age.Many people with colon cancer experience no symptoms in the early stages of the disease. When symptoms appear, they’ll likely vary, depending on the cancer’s size and location in your large intestine.
Breast cancer develops from breast tissue. Risk factors for developing breast cancer include being female, obesity, a lack of physical exercise, alcoholism, hormone replacement therapy during menopause, ionizing radiation , an early age at first menstruation , having children late in life or not at all, older age, having a prior history of breast cancer, and a family history of breast cancer.
Prostate cancer is the development of cancer in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. Most prostate cancers are slow growing; however, some grow relatively quickly.The cancer cells may spread from the prostate to other areas of the body, particularly the bones and lymph nodes. It may initially cause no symptoms. In later stages, it can lead to difficulty urinating, blood in the urine or pain in the pelvis, back, or when urinating.Factors that increase the risk of prostate cancer include older age, a family history of the disease, and race.
Esophagus cancer is cancer arising from the easophagus -the food pipe that runs between the throat and the stomach. Symptoms often include difficulty in swallowing and weight loss. Other symptoms may include pain when swallowing, a hoarse voice, enlarged lymph nodes around the collarbone, a dry cough, and possibly coughing up or vomiting blood.
Bladder cancer starts when cells that make up the urinary bladder start to grow out of control. As more cancer cells develop, they can form a tumor and, with time, spread to other parts of the body. Bladder cancer occurs in men more frequently than it does in women and usually affects older adults, though it can happen at any age.
Brain cancer is an overgrowth of cells in your brain that forms masses called tumors. Cancerous, or malignant, brain tumors tend to grow very quickly. They disrupt the way your body works, and this can be life-threatening .
Cancer cells form in the inner lining of your stomach. These cells can grow into a tumor. Also called gastric cancer, the disease usually grows slowly over many years. Though stomach cancer can be hard to diagnose and treat, it’s important to get the knowledge you need to beat the disease.
Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is cancer that originates in your lymphatic system, the disease-fighting network spread throughout your body. In non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, tumors develop from lymphocytes — a type of white blood cell. Symptoms include enlarged lymph nodes, fever, nightsweats, weight loss and tiredness. Other symptoms may include bonepain, chest pain or itchiness. Some forms are slow-growing, while others are fast-growing.
Liver cancer starts in the liver.When cancer develops in the liver, it destroys liver cells and interferes with the ability of the liver to function normally.Liver cancer symptoms include jaundice and a lump below the rib cage on your right side. Risk factors include other liver diseases, diabetes, and being a man.
Ovarian cancer is a type of cancer that begins in the ovaries. The female reproductive system contains two ovaries, one on each side of the uterus. Signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer may include abdominal bloating or swelling,quickly feeling full when eating,weight loss,discomfort in the pelvis area,changes in bowel habits, such as constipation and frequent need to urinate.
Kidney, or renal, cancer refers to any cancer that involves the kidney. Older age, obesity, smoking, and high blood pressure increase the risk of developing kidney cancer. Symptoms do not usually appear in the early stages of kidney cancer, but some people may experience them, particularly when cancer is more widespread.
Gastrointestinal (GI) cancer is a term used for the group of cancers that affect the gastrointestinal tract and other organs that are contained within the digestive system, including the esophagus, pancreas, stomach, colon, rectum, anus, liver, biliary system, and small intestine.
Multiple Myolema, also known as Kahler’s disease, is a type of blood cancer. It is a cancer of plasma cells. Normal plasma cells are found in the bone marrow and are an important part of the immune system. There’s no cure, but treatments can slow its spread and sometimes make symptoms go away.
Mesothelioma is a malignant tumor that is caused by inhaled asbestos fibers and forms in the lining of the lungs, abdomen or heart. Symptoms can include shortness of breath and chest pain.
Melanoma is a skin cancer which develops in the cells (melanocytes) that produce melanin — the pigment that gives your skin its color. Melanoma can also form in your eyes and, rarely, inside your body, such as in your nose or throat.
Oral cavity and oropharyngeal cancers start in the mouth or throat. It includes cancers of the lips, tongue, cheeks, floor of the mouth, hard and soft palate, sinuses, and pharynx (throat).If you have an oral cavity or oropharyngeal cancer or are close to someone who does, knowing what to expect can help you cope.
Most uterine cancer begins in the layer of cells that form the lining (endometrium) of the uterus. Risk factors include being overweight and starting periods at an early age. Symptoms include vaginal bleeding after menopause and bleeding between periods.
WHAT MAKES A GOOD SCREENING TEST?
An effective cancer screening test is one that has been validated in well-conducted studies and shown to help lower the likelihood of a tested person dying from cancer. Screening tests are most effective when a certain type of cancer is common within a particular community or within a group that is at particularly high risk of developing that cancer.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF CANCER SCREENING?
Cancer screening is a medical attempt to find cancer or the changes that may lead to cancer at the earliest possible point, before symptoms develop, in order to remove or treat these abnormal cells before they can cause illness or perhaps shorten a person’s life. A screening test does not itself treat cancer but can start the process by which cancers are diagnosed and treated.
DOES CANCER GETS DETECTED INITIALLY?
Yes. If you do periodic screening or cancer check up, it can be detected early.
SHOULD I HAVE A REGULAR SCREENING TESTS?
Yes. Cancer can be detected early if you are having regular tests.
DOES IT HAVE ANY ILL EFFECT OF RADIATION?
No, There is no ionizing radiation in MRI scanning.
DOES ALL THE CANCERS CAN BE DETECTED BY SCREENING?
No. There are certain cancers such as leukemia(blood cancer) cannot detected by screening.
