Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for nearly 10 million deaths in 2020. Each year, approximately 400 000 children develop cancer1
DNA OncoScreen is a comprehensive cancer screening test that helps identify the risk for developing certain types of cancers. It combines genetic risk assessment (<700000 markers across the genome) and biochemical testing to provide an accurate risk assessment for different cancers and known risk factors
Why DNA OncoScreen?
Cancers are most curable in early stages of manifestation. Unfortunately, less than 20% of the cancer patients in India are diagnosed and treated in the early stages. Most cancers in the country are detected at a later stage due to the lack of awareness and screening strategies. Cancer screening can help in early detection, management and potentially, curing cancer.
