Cancer Testing

While no blood test can diagnose cancer, some blood tests can aid in the diagnosis of cancer. If cancer is suspected, blood tests may be ordered. There are also blood tests used to screen for cancer or monitor the return of cancer after treatment.

Blood Tests Alone Cannot Diagnose Cancer.

There are no blood tests that can diagnose cancer. Additional testing is required to diagnose cancer. Talk to your healthcare provider about your results and if further tests will be performed.
