Since 1980, the American Cancer Society (ACS) has introduced and periodically updated guidelines or guidance related to screening and/or informed decision-making about tests for early detection of cancers (and, in some cases, precursor lesions) of the breast, cervix, colon and rectum, endometrium, lung, and prostate. These guidelines address the populations for whom testing is recommended or not recommended, the recommended tests and testing intervals, and the benefits and harms associated with testing for early cancer detection.
