      Hello all. So Im new to this site but I will give it a shot. I have a simple question. Can cancer be detected by a blood test?

      Thanks

      Hey there Max. Welcome to the forum. There are some blood tests which could suggest possible cancer like a CEA for example but in general a person can have normal labs and still have cancer. There are tests available to look for cancer DNA in patients who already had cancer and we can use these tests to look for early cancer recurrence.
