Screening Programs

BC Cancer provides screening programs for various cancers.
The purpose of a screening program is to apply a relatively simple, inexpensive test to a large number of people in order to identify those with risk factors for cancer or who are in its early stages. Screens are used for the types of cancers that when detected early can reduce deaths.

BC Cancer Screening

BC Cancer provides screening programs for breast, cervix, and colon cancer. Screening is done across the province at the regional cancer centres, local hospitals and clinics. For more information, please visit the BC Cancer Screening website.

Lung Cancer Screening

BC is currently considering a lung cancer screening policy for the province. For more information on lung cancer screening, or to learn more about a current BC Cancer study focusing on early detection of lung and bronchial cancer, visit the Lung Health Study.
