Cancer Detection Advancements are Remarkable

Scientists and Researchers have created a simple urine test to detect brain cancer, and the results have been outstanding.

According to this article by , new urine test for brain cancer was able to correctly identify 100% of patients with brain tumors, regardless of their tumor’s size — a sign it could be a useful method for detecting the potentially deadly disease.

The goal is to detect brain cancer before patients even feel like they’re sick.

In a new study, Nagoya University researchers report the development of a device that can extract huge amounts of microRNAs from even a small urine sample. They then developed a test that could analyze the microRNAs to determine whether or not a person has a brain tumor.
