Yüksel Ürün: Cancer screening with multicancer detection tests

Yüksel Ürün shared a post on X:

“Multicancer Detection (MCD) tests use one blood sample to screen for multiple cancers.

  • Potentially improves early detection, especially for cancers without effective screening.
  • Benefits and harms are still unknown.
  • Unlike conventional tests, the specific cancer organ is unknown, requiring broad diagnostics.
  • In studies with 16,000+ participants, MCD identified early-stage cancers like pancreas, ovary, liver, and more.
  • Sensitivity ranges from 27%-95%, lower for early-stage cancers.
  • False negatives may reduce standard screening adherence.
  • Trials needed to confirm accuracy, early detection effectiveness, and impact on overdiagnosis.”
