You will need
- - analysis of the blood for oncomarkers;
- - inspection by palpation;
- - hardware diagnostics;
- - analysis of tissue biopsy.
The appearance of malignant tumors contributes to an impaired immune system, which is designed to recognize all foreign and superfluous cells and immediately destroy them. Malignant tumor differs from a benign ability to produce filamentous appendages, which affects the nearby organs and tissues, forming metastases. As a result, the organs begin to work defective, which ultimately leads to their complete atrophy and death.
The first form of diagnosis, allowing to determine the presence of malignant cells, is a blood test for tumor markers. If the analysis showed the presence of tumor markers, there shall be additional types of research.
The earliest form of hardware diagnostics of a malignant tumor is ultrasound, magnetic resonance or computed tomography, mammography, radiography. Survey methods depend on the body that need to be examined. For example, malignant neoplasms of the breast can be determined early through mammography, the larynx – with the help of fibrolaryngoscopy or microlaryngoscopy. In the first case, the inspection is conducted by the endoscope, and the second a microscope.
Malignant tumors of the cervix, fundus and body of the uterus is diagnosed using an endoscope. The same diagnostics apply for the colon. In all cases, the tumor is found take the tissue sample for a biopsy. This is the final diagnosis, allowing a doctor to put the final diagnosis.
The most modern method of early diagnosis of the presence of malignant neoplasms is modern technology immunomagnetic enrichment. For the analysis take blood and determine the number Veridex CellSearch in the laboratory. A large number of these cells allows you with 100% certainty say that a malignant tumor is present.
A later stage of the emergence of malignant neoplasms is possible to determine by palpation if self-or during the medical examination.
