Would blood tests show cancerous tumors, or even benign one's in the body? OR Would a regular blood test show indications of cancer / a tumor inside?

Would blood tests show cancerous tumors, or even benign one's in the body? OR Would a regular blood test show indications of cancer / a tumor inside?

Not very helpful: We don't have reliable blood tests to look for the common cancers. Your best bet is cancer surveillance (in your case, I trust you get pap smears if you have ever had someone special), and know the usual warning signs and get seen if they come up. ...Read more

Drug: Drug testing is very expensive. It's not routinely done because of the expense. (in fact, they way laboratories do drug testing for employment screenings is to take a small amount of blood from all the people they're testing and mix them all together and just do one test on the mixed sample. If the mixed sample is clean, they know everyone is clean and don't test individuals.)

furthermore, no one can test you or your friend's blood for drugs without permission. It's considered an illegal search. Unless your friend has given specific authorization to be tested for drugs, the doctor or lab cannot perform the test. If they do, the avvo legal forum is thataway =====>. ...Read more

Can a blood test find liver cancer? My mom gets regular liver function tests. I think because of cirrhosis, or maybe another liver problem. I’m afraid the disease will cause cancer. Will cancer show up on the blood tests?

Sometimes: The diagnosis of cancer is made generally initially by various kinds of imaging tests - ultrasound, radionuclide liver scans and ct or mri, usually in patients where there is already suspicion. There is a test, called AFP (alpha fetoprotein) which is sometimes followed in patients with cirrhosis to try to detect cancer early; however, other conditions also cause it to go up. The best test=biopsy. ...Read more

Drug tests: Suprisingly, both nicotine and thc can stay in your system and be found in urine up to 3 months after you stopped smoking. But quitting is worth it!

ToSmokeOrNotToSmoke: The chances of testing positive for THC, even after a break in use, are much higher (about a week) if you're a regular user as opposed to someone who smoked a few times in the past few days (2-3 days)in BLOOD. In urine, THC metabolites stick around much longer (up to 100 days depending on smoking habits)so make sure you're getting a blood test. I f not, maybe a bad flu is coming on that'll last 100 days? ...Read more
