One in three people will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime. However, regular screenings can help catch cancer early before it becomes too difficult to treat, meaning the quality of life–and the quantity of life–is extended. Even though COVID-19 remains a high priority, it is still important to take cancer screenings seriously.
