We are currently working on this topic, answering the following questions:
The European Commission will make a proposal by 2022 to update the Council Recommendation on cancer screening to ensure it reflects the latest available scientific evidence. One of the objectives will be to consider the extension of cancer screening beyond breast, colorectal and cervical cancer to include prostate, lung and gastric cancer, and other cancers if supported by scientific evidence.
In advance of this proposal, the European Commission's Group of Chief Scientific Advisors will develop a Scientific Opinion on this topic.
