In brief: Testing

In some patients, paraneoplastic syndromes are clinical findings that accompany existing cancers.
These may include changes in the skin, bones, hormone levels, electrolytes, or organ function. Extensive blood testing or scans in a patient with suggestive findings can confirm the diagnosis.
