What is Screevention?

“Screen to prevent”

‘Screevention’ refers to a proactive plan comprising Screening, prevention, and potential cure for a healthy and carefree lifestyle by early detection of the problem/ disease.

The steps involved in Screevention are:

  • Doing screening tests on time when you are asymptomatic and healthy
  • If any health disorder is detected, prevent the disease from aggravating
  • Get the cure at the earliest stage for higher chances of survival.

What do normally people do?

  • Wait for screening until they get any symptoms of a health disorder.
  • Till the time they perform screening tests, the disorder is already in an aggressive form/ stage
  • As a result, they invite more stress and get panicked.
  • The recovery process gets more tedious and challenging.

Screening Test


What is a Screening Test?

The screening test is performed to identify potential health disorders or diseases in people who are asymptomatic. The goal is early detection and lifestyle changes or surveillance to reduce disease risk or detect disease early enough to treat it most effectively.

We can't always prevent serious illnesses from occurring, but we can definitely take steps to help us detect them as early as possible. Being proactive and taking the necessary measures are vital steps toward a healthy lifestyle.

What are the Different Types of Screening Tests?

There are many different factors that can contribute to illness, but, fortunately, there are many ways to prevent it. Screening for breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer, and cervical cancer are a few examples. There are screenings for many other illnesses as well. Many experts believe that if a disease is detected early enough it can be prevented from becoming serious or even cured.

Usually, what people do is perform screening tests when they feel uneasy or unhealthy. And till the time they perform screening tests the illness, if present, can possibly be in an aggressive form and can lead to less chance of survival/ cure. This is rather a reactive decision that makes the situation worse.

There are a few things that you should do in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle: eat healthy, exercise, sleep well, manage stress levels, avoid drugs or alcohol and please, get screened on time.
