More Info

Screening can lead to false positive as well as false negative results.

A false positive result means showing that cancer is present although it is actually not there. Such a result will cause patient anxiety and lead to more invasive procedures and tests.

A false negative result means showing that cancer is not present although it is actually present. This leads to delay in diagnosis and the patient will not seek the required medical care. My doctor has advised me to undergo a screening test for cancer.
