Cancer and vasculair diseases are the cause of many early deaths, handicaps and disabilities. Today, with many non-invasive medical imaging methods (ultrasonography, MRI, CT, PET/CT) early diagnosis of vascular deceases and cancer is very much possible. Half the battle is "catching" the disease before any signs or symptoms. As the saying goes - prevention is better than cure.
