Breast cancer is the most common cancer for women. Screening is done to detect the disease early in asymptomatic women, in an attempt to achieve an earlier diagnosis and lower mortality. Different screening tests are used for breast cancer screening, including clinical and self-examination of the breasts, mammography, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Mammography is the standard method for breast cancer screening. This method is reported to give a 40% reduction in the risk of dying from the disease Breasts with less fat and more fibrous tissue are known as dense breasts, they are a risk factor for breast cancer. The tissue makes it harder to find tumors while doing a mammogram, therefore MRI screening is proposed to supplement the mammogram in these patients. Cervical cancer is the 4th most common cancer for women with an estimated 340,000 deaths according to the World Health Organization (WHO). HPV disease is the leading cause of cervical cancer, therefore making the HPV vaccine the primary prevention measure for the cancer. Screening with the (Pap) test is consequently the second measure of prevention. Prostate cancer was estimated to be the second leading cause of death by cancer in the US in 2018.There are different methods used in screening for prostate cancer prostate biopsy, prostate-specific antigen testing (PSA  have recommendations for breast, cervical, colorectal and lung cancer as these have evidence-based screening methods. For the general population other cancers don’t have recommended screenings, but for people with risk factors known to be associated with a specific cancer there are screenings available.

Oral cancer, also known as mouth cancer, is a cancerof the lining of the lips, mouth, or upper throat.]In the mouth, it most commonly starts as a painless white patch, that thickens, develops red patches, an ulcer, and continues to grow. When on the lips, it commonly looks like a persistent crusting ulcer that does not heal, and slowly grows. Other symptoms may include difficult or painful swallowing, new lumps or bumps in the neck, a swelling in the mouth, or a feeling of numbness in the mouth or lips. Treatments used for oral cancer can include a combination of surgery (to remove the tumor and regional lymph nodes), radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. The types of treatments will depend on the size, locations, and spread of the cancer taken into consideration with the general health of the person.
