Cancer is a common disease that will affect 1 in 3 of us in our lives. While treatment options have advanced significantly, the key to successful treatment of cancer lies in its early detection.
The development of early cancer screening blood tests has brought about a new era of preventative medicine, offering the chance to identify potential early cancers before they become symptomatic.
Discover more about our early cancer screening blood tests that are now available exclusively at Evolve Medical.
The Importance of Early Cancer Screening Blood Tests
Traditionally, a cancer diagnosis has often depended on identifying worrying symptoms or the Doctor identifying worrying signs upon examination or through tests. Sadly this can take time meaning cancers often present at an advanced stage, making treatment difficult, lengthy and sadly for some, ineffective.
Early cancer screening blood tests enable the detection of certain cancer markers in the bloodstream long before symptoms become noticeable.
What Can Blood Tests Determine?
At Evolve Medical, our TruCheck early cancer screening blood tests can detect up to 50 different types of cancer before any symptoms develop.
These innovative tests identify the presence of the following:
- Genetic mutations
- Circulating tumour cells (CTCs)
- Cell-free DNA (cfDNA)
Benefits of Early Detection
These benefits include:
Improved Treatment Options: Detecting cancer in its early stages opens doors to a wider array of treatment options that are generally less aggressive, quicker and less distressing for those affected.
Enhanced Survival Rates: Studies have shown that cancers detected at an early stage are associated with significantly higher survival rates compared to those detected later.
Peace of Mind: Regular screening provides peace of mind, knowing that you are actively monitoring your health and taking steps to catch things sooner.

Once the consultation is over, your practitioner will proceed with the blood test.
