Detecting Lung Cancer In Its Initial Stages
...ion deaths a year. // Since the disease is hard to detect
in early and treatable stages, most cases are found only after the cancer has spread. Studies have shown CT scans can identify the disease in an early stage in individuals considered at high risk for lung cancer, but they also identify many noncancer...
Skin Allergies Found To Increase The Risk Of Leukemia
...s by enhancing the ability of the immune system to detect
and eliminate malignant cells. Researchers say they found no link between later cancers and other allergic conditions, such as hay fever. However, since results did trend toward a higher leukemia risk among those with asthma. Thus researchers urge p...
Colonoscopy Could Also Identify Heart Attack Risk
...o identify colon cancer early, may also be able to detect
heart attack risk in patients.// A virtual colonoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that tests for colon cancer using 2-D and 3-D imaging without the sedation and higher cost of regular colonoscopies. In a recent study researchers examined the ...

more cases of tuberculosis than did sputum induction alone. Thus researchers say more straightforwa...
The Bio-probe –“ Boon to women ?
...f them have never had a Pap smear. Pap tests can detect
abnormal cells that lead to cervical cancer but the Bio – probe works on a different principle.” It’s believed that as the normal tissues progress from normal to cancer, the amount of blood and fluid in the tissues increases, and that causes a decrea...
More Dependable Screening Test For Bladder Cancer

bladder cancer earlier. Researchers tested the NM...rchers caution that it should not be used alone to detect
bladder cancer. In order to provide an accurate diagnosis researchers say it should be combined with...
New Screening Method Found To Detect Testicular Cancer In Its Initial Stages
...caught early. // However, it is often difficult to detect
the cancer before it starts to spread. Researchers now say they have discovered a new method of detecting testicular cancer before it spreads. Researchers say they have found a gene, called TFAP2C that is expressed in testicular cancer patients, whi...
Test to help detect Alzheimer's disease early
Researchers have fine-tuned the standard test to detect
