Abstract

Although cancer is a global public health problem, it is at the forefront of the disease burden ranking of countries. It tried to examine the relationship between screening, awareness, and belief variables for cancer, which is a significant health problem. The Health Information National Trends Survey (HINTS 6) data was used. The association between cancer screening, awareness, and belief was evaluated using Pearson's r Correlation Coefficient with data from 6252 American adults. Moderate and high correlations were found between the variables analyzed within the scope of the study. There was a strong positive correlation between interest in cancer screening and concern about getting cancer (r=0.707; p<0.001) and a strong positive correlation between cancer prevention and cancer treatments, cancer screenings (r=0.608; p<0.001) and general health status (r=0.491; p<0.001). It is thought that studies to increase cancer screening and awareness may positively affect individuals' health behaviors. Therefore, it is recommended that strategies be developed that can help improve public health behaviors and make significant progress in the fight against cancer by increasing cancer screening and awareness.
