The worst kind of cancer diagnosis is a late one.

The American Cancer Society estimates that 1.8 million new cancer cases will be diagnosed in 2020. Early detection can improve a person’s chances of survival.

3 Steps DetectSM

We sort through all of the complexity of early cancer detection and bring you a simple three-step plan to identify early warning signs, to know when to take action, and to have the right conversation with your healthcare providers.

STEP 01:
Remember what great feels like

Knowing how you feel when you’re at your best will help you notice small changes in your overall health that could be signs of larger health changes.
STEP 02:
Use the 2-week rule

If you notice a subtle change in your normal health that lasts two weeks or more, it’s time to call your doctor and learn what is causing the change.
STEP 03:
Share with your doctor

Taking action and talking to your doctor about small but persistent health changes is your best pathway to earlier diagnosis, and more effective treatment.
