Tests to monitor treatment progress

The Irish Cancer Society doesn’t inform us about tests that can show whether or not treatment is working.

 

What the Irish Cancer Society tells us:

There’s no information about these tests on the Irish Cancer Society website.

What the Society doesn’t tell us:

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.

(Here are some of those tests)
