AZ Myeloma Network on New Technologies for Cancer Screenings

Due to the lack of screenings, the vast majority of cancers are undetectable when they’re in an early stage. As a result, diagnosis occurs at a later and more complex stage. But new advancements have made it possible to detect dozens of cancers early, when they’re easier to treat. They are found through a simple blood draw that can detect trace DNA fragments from cancer cells in the blood. This breakthrough, called multi-cancer early detection (MCED), will be an important new weapon in the War on Cancer. For more information visit azmyelomanetwork.org.
