The purpose of cancer screening is to find cancers before they cause symptoms.
Screening is only used for certain types of cancer where there is a proven benefit from a safe and accurate test that can be used in a large number of people who do not have any symptoms.
There is no routine test available to screen for head and neck cancers.
