Cancer Diagnosis

Cancer diagnosis is an imperative area which involves tests and procedures to confirm the presence of disease and identify the correct tumour type, location, extent and stage. Cancer diagnostic team includes physicians across many medical specialties, including radiologists, pathologists and geneticists who have expertise in using advanced, minimally invasive diagnostic tests and procedures to diagnose the disease. Early Diagnosis of cancer (when no symptoms are present) provides the best chance for a cure and some of the newly developed early diagnosis methods include:

  • Biomarker/ genetic test

  • Liquid biopsy tests

  • population-science based testing interventions

However, the commonly used diagnostic tests include:

  • Review of health history

  • Physical examination

  • Laboratory tests

  • Biopsy

  • Imaging tests

  • Nuclear medicine scans

  • Endoscopy

  • Genetic tests

  • Genomic tests
