Screening in 2SLGBTQI+ communities

Take control of your health – see your healthcare provider regularly and know when you should be screened for certain cancers.

2SLGBTQI+ communities put the spotlight on early detection

Members of the 2SLGBTQI+ communities share their experience with screening and encourage others to get screened. If you’re in a certain age or population group, you can also have screening tests that help find breast, cervical and colorectal cancer before you’ve even noticed symptoms.

Why should you get screened?

We know that 2SLGBTQI+ communities are less likely to get screened than their non-trans and heterosexual counterparts. While there can be many barriers to taking care of your health, it’s important to get screened.
