It’s impossible to treat cancer if you don’t know you have it—and when you finally realize you do, it’s often too late.
A Better Way to Screen for Cancer – Galleri Multi-Cancer Early Detection Test
Most traditional cancer screenings are singular in scope, focusing on one organ and testing for one specific type of cancer. Too often these screenings miss cancers growing inside of you that aren’t being tested for. The Galleri Multi-Cancer Early Detection Test’s new technology is transforming the fight against cancer by expanding how thoroughly and early these cancers can be detected.
For the general population, the chance of receiving a cancer diagnosis in your lifetime is 39%. The leading cancers in the U.S. are Breast (12.9%), Prostate (12.1%), Lung (6.3%), Colon (4.2%), Uterine (3.1%), Melanoma (3%) and Bladder (2.4%). While over 1.89 million people will be diagnosed with cancer in 2021, 1.3 million of those cases will not have been detected through routine screenings.
Using leading technology, science, and large clinical studies, GRAIL has developed a new and powerful way to screen for various cancers at once, revolutionizing how cancers are diagnosed. Through their innovative Galleri Multi-Cancer Early Detection Test, GRAIL can take a patient’s blood sample and analyze it to identify the potential presence of over 50 different cancers, including those that aren’t routinely screened for:
Using genomics and machine-learning, the Galleri Multi-Cancer Early Detection Test can not only determine what cancer you have, but also where that cancer is located in your body with 89% accuracy. Out of 1000 people tested, an average of 10 will have a positive cancer diagnosis, allowing them to treat their cancer proactively and most effectively.
