A simple blood test for cancer?

post-image
Grail is on a quest to detect multiple types of cancer before symptoms, via a single, simple blood test. The test looks at cell-free plasma to find fragments of so-called circulating tumour DNA (ctDNA) sloughed off by cancer cells. Detecting cancer sooner ? before symptoms ? means you can intervene earlier and people are less likely to die. http://www.inkl.com/newsletters/morning-edition/news/could-we-soon-be-able-to-detect-cancer-in-10-minutes?
