Groundbreaking blood test could detect over 20 types of cancer

  Groundbreaking blood test could detect over 20 types of cancer Modern medical innovations have given doctors the power to screen for a variety of cancers, and that's great, but screening for multiple types of cancers at the same time, and with a single test, is essentially still a pipe dream. However, that may be about to change thanks to a new kind of blood test that researchers say is showing serious promise. The test, developed by a company called GRAIL, may be able to accurately detect over 20 different types of cancer by hunting for their unique signatures in the DNA found in a blood sample.

Rod Stewart feared a secondary cancer diagnosis during his secret battle with prostate cancer.

The rocker, 74, kept news of his illness quiet, after it was diagnosed early in 2017 during a routine check-up, only speaking about his health battle at a fundraising evening for the Prostate Project in Surrey, England with former Faces bandmates Kenney Jones and Ronnie Wood last month.

While the star has been given the all-clear, his wife Penny Lancaster told her co-hosts on U.K. daytime show Loose Women on Thursday they feared the "aggressive" cancer had spread to a secondary region after leaving the prostate gland.

Superstar singer Rod Stewart had a cancer scare after doctors found a lump during a routine medical. The lump was found during a standard screening in 2016. Stewart was diagnosed with an enlarged prostate while an operation was discussed by doctors.

After finding a lump during a rectal examination, Penny recalled: "We got the shock news it was cancer. We looked at the different ways of dealing with it.

"It came on really quickly. With Rod it was an aggressive one," she continued. "It left the gland and travelled to the outside tissues. So that was another scary moment where we had to have more invasive tests and scans to see if it was anywhere else secondary in his body, which was the most frightening test of all. But it hadn't gone."

Rod was declared cancer-free in July, and Penny went on to stress the importance of men getting cancer check-ups regularly, urging health officials to regularly remind men to get themselves checked.

Sofia Vergara standing in front of a building: Almost everyone knows someone who’s been affected by cancer, but what you might not know is that even some of the world’s most famous people have dealt with the devastating disease. These high-profile figures have been in your favorite TV shows and movies and serenaded you through  speakers and headphones. But they haven’t let the disease define them and were able to come out on the other side with a clean bill of health.  While it’s common to say that someone “beat cancer,” it’s more complicated than that. Doctors wouldn’t say someone is completely cured but rather that they’re “in remission” or “cancer-free” with no remaining visible signs of cancer. Since these celebrities have returned to the public eye post-cancer, many fans might not even realize that they overcame this disease.
