Suggestion: Most blood tests and/or medical imaging will only suggest possible cancer. Confirmation is only through tissue analysis/ biopsy/ aspirate, etc. Hope it helps.

Yes, most times it d: Cancer is not difficult to diagnose but you need to go to an experienced doctor/preferably an oncologist. We look for any abnormal growth in the common sites affected by cancer(such as Lungs, Colon, Breast and Prostate). Blood tests are an aid but only provide indirect support for diagnosis. There is no single blood test that wil reliably show Cancer, at least not yet, but someday soon it is likel
