How Do We Diagnose Cancer?

As there are different types of cancer, there are also different
studies to detect its presence. They usually include one or more
of the following tests:

  • Physical examination by the doctor.
  • Laboratory tests, such as blood or urine tests.
  • Imaging studies, such as ultrasound, magnetic resonance,
    tomography or PET-CT.
  • Biopsy, which consists of taking a tissue sample to analyze it
    and corroborate if it is cancer and what type it is.
  • Genetic studies, which allow to know in which genes the cancer
    is causing mutations, with which the definition of the indicated
    treatment is more precise and effective.

Treatments for Cancer

cancer, its genetic behavior, the stage of the disease, the
patient’s age and his or her health condition are some of the most

Qué es PET-CT
