Ask your Doctor to Order the Proper Test to Diagnose your Cancer
If you suspect that you might have cancer, it is important to ask your doctor to order the appropriate tests to diagnose your cancer. Why? Because the earlier cancer is diagnosed and treated, the more likely that your cancer will be cured. For each type of cancer, there are special tests that will diagnose that cancer. For breast cancer, it is a mammogram and an ultrasound guided biopsy of any suspicious findings. For colon cancer, the two most important tests are CT scans and colonoscopy with a biopsy of any suspicious findings. For bladder cancer, urine cytology is an excellent test.If you suspect that your breast cancer was not timely and properly diagnosed or treated, please call us at 412-471-4300 or contact us.
