Cancer Screening (Tumor Markers)
Do You Want To Check For Cancer?
Does your family have a strong history of cancer driving your anxiety? Or do you just want to play it safe and have a regular check-up? In both cases a cancer detection test helps providing guidance on whether you have cancer.
With a blood test you screen for tumor markers – substances that are produced by cancer or by other cells of the body in response to cancer or certain benign (noncancerous) conditions. Most tumor markers are made by normal cells as well as by cancer cells; however, they are produced at much higher levels in cancerous conditions.
A standard screening gives good visibility, but is not conclusive! If you suspect cancer, please contact your doctor for more and detailed tests.
How Can You Test Your Blood?
At Beyond Nutrition in Dubai we are specialized in testing blood and can conduct different tumor marker blood tests. The process is simple:
- Book an appointment at our Dubai JLT clinic and our licensed, experienced nurse will take a blood sample which will be sent to the lab the same day. The whole process will take around 10 minutes. We can also visit you at a location of your convenience (additional costs apply)
- A test result report will be shared with you by email after 1-2 working days
- An elevated level of tumor markers can indicate cancer, but can also be caused by other sources (false positive values). Also, even normal test results are not conclusive. If you have reasons to believe you have cancer, please contact a doctor immediately
Appointments can be made on 042 43 4166 or you can directly book in our appointment form (under Blood Tests). If you wish to inquire about other screening tests, please contact us as well.
