Blood test may spot lung cancer's return, even before scans

from Chicago Tribune

A blood test can detect the return of lung cancer months before CT and PET scans, a new study suggests. The research included 48 adults with stage 2 or 3 locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The patients were aged 31 to 84. All were treated with chemotherapy and radiation. Blood samples were taken before treatment, during treatment and at six different times during the two years following treatment. The blood samples were checked for increased levels of circulating tumor cells, the researchers said. more
