A blood test that?s a breakthrough for detecting cancer

post-image
Scientists have created a blood test that can detect eight of the most common cancers long before they turn lethal, in a breakthrough that could save millions of people from premature death. The ?liquid biopsy? identifies early-stage tumours from proteins and genetic mutations circulating in the blood. Called CancerSEEK, the test delivers almost no false positives, sparing patients needless heartache and unnecessary medical procedures for non-existent diseases. http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/health-science/blood-tests-deliver-cancer-breakthrough/news-story/8874f0bd0d4b4eea680892d421c2f12c
