Trucheck Intelli is a simple blood test which can help find cancer early before you show symptoms.
WHY IS CANCER SCREENING IMPORTANT?
Unfortunately, 1 in 2 people born after 1960 will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Currently almost half of those people are being diagnosed after the cancer has spread.
Finding cancer early is important because it dramatically improves the likelihood that cancers can be cured and means more lives will be saved.
Many cancers don’t have any reliable method for cancer screening and finding the disease early. There are also some cancers that have no symptoms until they spread elsewhere in the body.
This ground breaking new screening test that is a convenient way to check for 70 types of cancer with a single blood test.
Who can have Trucheck testing?
Anyone over the age of 40 that is asymptomatic and has never had a previous cancer diagnosis.
Who shouldn’t have a Trucheck test?
Trucheck is unsuitable for people with a history of cancer, or those who currently have a clinical suspicion of cancer.
HOW DOES THE TEST FIND CANCER EARLY?
When cancer is present in the body, it sheds tiny cells and tumour fragments into the blood stream, called circulating tumour cells (CTCs).
These cells are a strong signal of cancer activity and are also the main reason cancers spread in the body. Trucheck can detect these cells in your blood and indicate the likely organ they came from.
You will then be able to have targeted follow up investigations and treatment if necessary.
