What is a "screen"?

A screen refers to a test or examination used to identify a disease or condition in individuals who do not have symptoms. Screens are often used to identify health issues early, before symptoms appear, allowing for earlier action and treatment. Examples of medical screens include mammograms for breast cancer and blood tests for high cholesterol. The goal of a screen is to identify potential health problems at an early stage when they are more likely to be treated successfully.
