In Your Health Minute.

People working for small companies are less likely to get regular cancer screenings.

Researchers from the American Cancer Society looked at screening rates for cervical, breast and colorectal cancer.

Workers at companies with fewer than 25 employees were less likely to be up to date with these screenings than those at larger corporations.

People in certain occupations, like food service, construction, production and sales, also had lower screening rates for these cancers.

Screening gaps were mostly attributed to lower socioeconomic status and lack of insurance.
