A revolutionary method in cancer Early Detection

Cancer is projected to be the leading cause of death in the United States in 2021. Our need for tools of early discovery, diagnosis and treatment are increasing. Would it not be amazing if there was one test that discovers all different types of cancer in one setting.

I always heard stories about people discovering their cancer in late stages. A case that would be preventable if discovered earlier.

Well, I read the most amazing news today. A new biotech company is bringing this imagination to reality. The company called Grail is revolutionizing cancer detection options. It created a blood test that would discover 50 different types of cancer. Forty-five of those tests doesn’t have any recommended screening. The test is conducted by a single blood draw. Something that will make doctors a lot less hesitant in ordering cancer screening, which currently costs a lot.

A number of U.S. health systems will start using Galleri as a cancer screening tool in the second half of 2021. The test depends on discovering certain blood DNA fragments that indicate the presence of different types of cancer.

Needless to say, I am very excited about this invention and I hope it makes a difference in the way we detect cancer and treat it.
