PARTICIPATE in a screening programme

Screening programmes are designed to detect disease early so interventions can be undertaken to halt progression or cure.These tests are not diagnostic tests. Diagnostic tests are not always correct and can occassionaly give a false positive or false negative result. Your probability of having a disease prior to having a test alters the likelihood of the accuracy of a result. If you have risk factors, a family history or high genetic risk score for disease you may choose to undertake one of these tests.
