To diagnose cance, your doctor may employ one or more methods.
Examination of the body: Your doctor may feel for bumps on your body that could signal cancer. During a physical examination, your doctor may search for abnormalities that could suggest the presence of cancer, such as changes in skin colour or organ enlargement.
Tests in the lab Laboratory testing: such as urine and blood tests, may aid your doctor in detecting cancer-related abnormalities. A standard blood test called a complete blood count, for example, may detect an unusual quantity or kind of white blood cells in persons with leukaemia.
Imaging tests are performed: Noninvasive imaging examinations allow your doctor to inspect your bones and internal organs. A computed tomography (CT) scan, bone scan, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET) scan, ultrasound, and X-ray are some of the imaging techniques used to diagnose cancer.
Biopsy:During a biopsy, your doctor takes a sample of cells for laboratory testing. A sample can be collected in a variety of ways. The sort of cancer you have and where it is located determine which biopsy procedure is best for you. In most cases, a biopsy is the only option to confirm a cancer diagnosis.
