The Irish Cancer Society doesn’t inform us about tests that can show whether or not treatment is working.
There’s no information about these tests on the Irish Cancer Society website.
Going through cancer treatment not knowing whether or not it is working can be very worrying and stressful.
However, there are a number of tests that you can use to check on your progress.
If the results are positive you’ll know you’re on the right track. If the results show treatment is of no benefit, you will save valuable time and you can switch to a different treatment before it’s too late.
The tests may also allow you to minimize and eliminate the need for damaging PET/CT scans.
