Cancer Diagnosis

Plausible and effective diagnostic testing is needed to confirm or contradict the presence of cancer, to monitor the disease progression and to evaluate the management and effectiveness of treatment An accurate, thorough and early cancer diagnosis is the first step in developing a rational, specific and individualized cancer treatment plan this is done after performing complete array of diagnostic tests.Cancer is first and fore mostly always diagnosed by an expert pathologist who looks at cell samples or tissue samples microscopically. In some cases, tests done on the cell proteins, DNA, and RNA can help physicians to detect presence of cancer. Tests of cells and tissues for detection of cancer can help in diagnosis of other kinds of diseases, too. For instance, if pathologists are unsure of the diagnosis of lump as cancer, then small piece of it is taken and tested for cancer, for infections or other problems that can cause over growth of cells that looks like cancer. There is no exact or specific single pathological test that can accurately diagnose cancer. The complete evaluation of a patient requires a thorough history, complete body profile and physical examination along. Numerous pathological tests are needed to determine and confirm whether its cancer or if another condition (infection) is mimicking the symptoms of cancer.
