I just filled out the online request for an appointment from the Krabbameinsfélagið at krabb.is (which I think is kind of a funny website name). People have been telling me to do this for a while, since I guess the annual exam is free and it is also easy to get an appointment.
Of course no one really likes to go in for a cancer screening, but here in Iceland, as in the States, they talk about the importance of regular check ups, early detection, and also just starting a baseline file. Seems like it is also kind of a requirement?
So although I do not consider it of life or death importance, I am also not opposed to being in the system. As long as they do not give me really bad news at any point in time, I imagine I would be perfectly happy to talk to the fine folks at the Cancer Association.
