Cancers figure among the leading causes of death worldwide. Each year around 14 million new cancer cases and 8.2 million cancer deaths are reported across the globe. GLOBOCAN 2012 figures indicate that the incidence of cancer has increased from 12.7 million in 2008 to 14.1 million in 2012, and this trend is projected to continue with a number of new cases expected to rise a further 75%.

The goal of medical screening programs is to detect disease at a latent or early stage in order to deliver more timely interventions, leading to reduced morbidity and/or mortality. Rose and Barker suggested that an effective screening program must answer three important questions: “Does early treatment improve prognosis? How valid and repeatable is the screening test? What are the yields of the screening service?
