Multi-cancer early detection is a groundbreaking new type of cancer screening test that utilizes advances in genomic science and machine learning to transform cancer detection. Over 300 organizations are urging Congress to ensure access for seniors.
When it comes to cancer, we need time on our side. Finding cancer early leads to more effective, efficient treatment and a better quality of life for patients and their loved ones.
Today, routine screening is available for only five types of cancer, which leaves the vast majority of cancers without available screening tests. But when cancer is detected early, nine of every 10 cancer patients will live five years or longer.
The Prevent Cancer Foundation and more than 300 cancer advocacy organizations are calling on Congress to ensure seniors with Medicare have access to multi-cancer screening tests once they are approved by the FDA.
