Tests To Find and Diagnose Cancer

Depending on the symptoms, after initial through clinical examination by our specialist, you may need to undergo a combination of tests to find out whether it is due to cancer or some other cause.

Biopsy and Genetic testing

Whenever cancer is suspected, it needs to be confirmed with a biopsy. Choosing the right biopsy technique, analysis and relevant molecular studies will immensely help in planning the right form of treatment. This way, expert pathology service forms a backbone of a great cancer clinic.

Pathology services at Horizon:

  • Pap smear/HPV testing
  • Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC)
  • Tumor Biopsy:Core/punch/wedge/excision
  • Immuno -HistoChemistry (IHC)
  • Molecular tests: FISH / NGS
  • Cytogenetic (FISH)
  • PCR
  • DNA Microarray
  • NGS (Next Generation Sequencing)
Imaging (Radiology) Tests

Imaging tests can be used to look for cancer, to find out how far it has spread, and to check treatment response. Good quality imaging with a dedicated radiologist is paramount in the cancer treatment decision. Types of imaging tests:

  • Ultrasonography
  • Mammography
  • Computed tomography (CT) scan
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
  • XRay & Fluotoscopy
  • Nuclear Medicine:

    • Technetium Bone scan
    • PET CT scan :FDG/F18/Gallium/PSMA/DOPA
    • Radio-Iodine
Endoscopy Procedures

Endoscopy is essential to visualize and biopsy the ulcerative growths arising in gastro intestinal, airway and urinary passages . With advanced endoscopy techniques like Endo Ultrasound (EUS) we can assess local extent of tumor. Types of endoscopy include:

  • Upper GI Endoscopy (OGD)
  • Endo Ultrasound (EUS)
  • Bronchoscopy
  • Laryngo-pharyngoscopy
  • Cystoscopy
  • Thoracoscopy
  • Colonoscopy

Lab Tests:

Certain cancers can be diagnosed by testing blood for tumour markers, which are substances that are produced by cancer cells at much higher levels than normal cells. We have elaborative cancer-related lab tests –

Alpha-fetoProtein (AFP): Liver / germ cell tumors

Beta-HCG: Choriocarcinoma and germ cell tumor

CA19-9: Pancreatic, gallbladder, gastric cancers

CA-125: Ovarian cancer

CA 27.29: Breast cancer

Calcitonin: Medullary thyroid cancer

Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA): Colorectal / MTC / liver cancers

Chromogranin A (CgA): Neuroendocrine tumours

Neuron-specific enolase (NSE): Lung cancer and neuroblastoma

Prostate-specific antigen (PSA): Prostate cancer

Thyroglobulin: Thyroid cancer

Other Biochemical Tests…

Identifying subtle signs, which can be missed on investigations, sometimes alters the cancer  stage and management, hence the importance of good initial clinical examination by an experienced surgical oncologist.
