Cancer screens and cancer tests are for people wanting a routine cancer check maybe because they have a family history of a particular type of cancer or simply for peace of mind.
As cancer can have many signs or symptoms, we recommend that the tests are carried out in conjunction with one of our Health Checks.
This blood test has been designed to aid the identification of cancer in the bloodstream. It is a prevention test, the result of which does not in any way constitute a medical diagnosis and is not a replacement for recognised routine cancer tests such as mammography, colonoscopy / faecal occult blood testing, PAP smear / bimanual pelvic exam, or any physical exam.
We will send you your CA 72-4 blood test sample collection kit together with the details of a convenient clinic where you can go and have your sample taken.
Your CA 72-4 test includes 1st class postage and packaging for you to send your blood sample directly to our laboratory for analysis. If you live in an area where you cannot rely on the post or you simply want to ensure that your sample arrives at the laboratory the following day, you may wish to send your blood sample guaranteed next day delivery for extra reassurance.
