Kolkata's cancer hospital launches Revolutionary Blood Test for early detection of breast cancer

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 28 Jun 2022, 11:33 am

Kolkata/IBNS: Apollo Cancer Centre in collaboration with Datar Cancer Genetics has launched the Revolutionary Blood Test for early detection of breast cancer in women.

This blood test kit detects symptoms of breast cancer in its early stages in asymptomatic individuals with a high level of accuracy.

One of the main discussions at the press conference was the increase in the number of breast cancer cases and most importantly the “social construct” associated with discussing the topic.

Commenting on the occasion, Dr Prathap Reddy, Founder and Chairman of Apollo Hospitals said, "Health expenditure should be treated as an investment as human life is not only for one’s happiness but the whole family's happiness."
