Özet

Objective: It has been suggested that the decision of when to implement cancer screening should be based on the frailty status or life expectancy in older adults. There is a limited number of studies reporting cancer screening prevalence in older adults. The aim of this study was to examine the patterns of colorectal, breast, prostate, and lung cancer screening in geriatric outpatients with different frailty statuses.
