Understanding Cancer Tests

At BVHS, our team uses tests such as blood tests, mammograms, MRIs and CT scans to help screen for, diagnose, treat and monitor cancer. If you have been diagnosed with cancer, you may have had one or more of these tests, including imaging tests, to find cancer inside the body. They are used to identify the cancer stage and help focus treatment decisions such as infusion therapy, radiation or surgery. There are many reasons why you may need specific tests, including:

  • Screen for cancer: Screening tests are done in people without any symptoms to find cancer early when it is small and has not spread beyond where it started. Examples are the Pap smear to screen for cervical cancer and mammograms to screen for breast cancer.
  • Help diagnose and stage cancer: If your doctor thinks you may have cancer, tests will be needed to help diagnose and stage cancer (find out how large and how far it has spread). For instance, a chest X-ray and CT scan might be done for someone with symptoms of lung cancer.
  • Guide cancer treatment: Sometimes, tests are used during treatment to help guide or direct the infusion therapy, surgery or radiation that is being done. An example of this might be MRI-guided brain surgery. In this surgery, an MRI is used to create images that help the surgeon remove the tumor and limit damage to nearby tissue.
  • Monitor cancer and its treatment: If you have been diagnosed with cancer or have had cancer treatment, your doctor will use tests to monitor the cancer, see if it has come back or check for side effects of the treatment. An example of this might be checking the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels in someone who has been treated for prostate cancer.
