Reporting from Cancer is still the deadliest disease in the world. Usually a new cancer can be diagnosed after developing rapidly, it causes delays in handling the deadly disease.

Now researchers in the health field have found a blood test that can detect the eight most common types of cancer. With these findings, of course, gives new hope for cancer sufferers.

“For the first time we saw the potential for blood tests that can detect various types of malignant cancers. Usually we have to wait until the symptoms are diagnosed quite late,” Gibbs said, as quoted by ABC, recently.

Blood tests conducted by examining more than 1,000 cancer patients suggest that this test can detect tumors on average in 70 percent of patients. In addition, this blood test was also tested on 800 volunteers who were not diagnosed with cancer.

Gibbs explained that this test was designed primarily for people aged over 50 years, as well as young people with a family history of cancer. Gibbs hopes this test will be part of the routine examination at least once a year.

The blood test research team, is now conducting further research on 10 thousand people to check the effectiveness of this blood test.

This test, which costs around US $ 1,000 or equivalent to R13.3 million, is believed to reduce the risk of death from cancer by 50 percent. according to a study published in the jurna science, blood tests can help doctors find out to diagnose cancer, ovaries, liver, pancreas, esophagus, intestines, lungs and breasts.
