    Default Blood Test Can Detect Cancer Years Before Symptoms Show

    A blood test can pick up cancers up to four years before symptoms appear, researchers say, in the latest study to raise hopes of early detection.
    A team led by researchers in China say the non-invasive blood test – called PanSeer – detects cancer in 95% of individuals who have no symptoms but later receive a diagnosis.
    “We demonstrated that five types of cancer can be detected through a DNA methylation-based blood test up to four years before conventional diagnosis,” the team wrote in the journal Nature Communications.

    My question: having found evidence of cancer somewhere in the body, possibly even in a specific organ, what — if any — is the treatment? In other words, how is this discovery useful?

    Islander's question exactly is my concern about this and about all of the "screening" tests which constantly are being pushed at us. In my mind, if I were not to be doing anything differently with myself once I had this information, then it is of no use to me.

    Whatever treatment is used, isn't it always better to start early? Cancers that are found later are harder to treat, with less chance of recovery.The treatment may be less harsh, and natural therapies more chance of being effective.
