The earlier cancer is diagnosed, the greater the chances of curing it
Therefore, it is vital that diagnostic tests are carried out in a coordinated manner and as quickly as possible in order to avoid unnecessary delays. These may include imaging tests, blood tests, taking a biopsy and genetic analyses of tumor tissue or blood samples.
A genetic diagnosis is key to treatment selection
Another fundamental factor is the accurate characterization of the type of cells which have caused the cancer, since this information allows us to select the most appropriate treatment for each case.
