Cancer testing is always a major area of research because in most cases detecting and diagnosing cancer early can significantly improve treatment possibilities. Fortunately this week a medial study published results that indicate there may soon be an entirely new way to test for colon cancer and it is shockingly simple.
The new colon cancer test is significantly more effective than most cancer tests and doctors say that it will likely catch on because it is simple, fast, cheap, and effective. Breathing onto a test pad or machine is all it takes according to the report and based upon chemicals found in the patient’s breath the test can determine whether or not colon cancer is present. It seems farfetched by dozens of medical studies have been conducted to determine the accuracy and effectiveness, so far they’re all seeing the same results.
Doctors are hopeful that this test will roll out onto the worldwide market soon so that more people begin screening for colon cancer. Doctors also say that this is a step in the right direction for a number of reasons, primarily because it shows that with enough research a simple and effective cancer test can be created in many cases. This is great news for the medical industry for sure.
