About the current situation of cancer screening

There is merit by to discover in cancer screening early before symptom of cancer comes out, and to be connected for early treatment, can decrease the death rate due to cancer.
On the other hand, as for the probability, there is demerit that gastrointestinal perforation (there is hole) produces for inspection of cancer screening, e.g., endoscopy very much although it is low.
In addition, we cannot find 100% cancer by cancer screening either, and there is limit. Therefore, in Yokohama-shi, we perform precision management for better cancer screening, but recommend early consultation to medical institution even if judged that "there is no abnormality" by cancer screening when afterwards some kind of symptoms come out.
