Cancer/Tumor Screening Tests

Difference between tumor and cancer:

A tumor is a group of abnormally growing, redundant cells that can occur in any organ or location. Tumors can be classified as benign or malignant, mainly by their growth pattern and nature rather than lethality.

Benign tumors proliferate at the primary site and will not spread to other body parts. Generally, regular inspections are required, and they are not life-threatening. However, if it continues to increase, it may compress adjacent organs, and a doctor needs to be further examined and treated appropriately.

Malignant tumors form so-called cancers. It can spread and must be treated. Otherwise, it will destroy the surrounding normal tissues and invade other organs through the blood or lymphatic system.


【mRNA Circulating Tumor Cells Screening】mRNA dynamic gene technology can detect the number of CTCs; therefore, it could screen out and detect the ultra-early stage of Tumor (0.2 cm or above) by investigating CTCs. mRNA dynamic gene technology is up to 93-97% of accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity by non-invasive and safe technology.

【Tumor markers】A tumor marker is anything present in or produced by cancer cells or other cells of the body in response to cancer or certain benign (noncancerous) conditions that provides information about cancer, such as how aggressive it is, whether it can be treated with targeted therapy, or whether it is responding to treatment. To be used as a reference or preliminary check only

【Ultrasound】An ultrasound is an imaging test that uses sound waves to make pictures of organs, tissues, and other structures inside your body
