Galleri Multi-Cancer Early Detection Test
What is Galleri Testing?
Beating cancer starts with knowing you have it. We're pleased to share that we are now offering the Galleri Multi-Cancer Early Detection Test which detects more than 50 types of cancer, including many not commonly screened for today.1,2 With a simple blood draw, the Galleri test can provide early detection insights that can help you be proactive about your health.
What are the benefits of the Galleri test?
Here are a few benefits of the test:
- It detects many cancers that are not commonly screened for today.
- It can be incorporated into a routine visit through a simple blood draw.
- If a cancer signal is found, the results point to where in the body the cancer is coming from to help guide your next steps.
When cancer is diagnosed early before it has had a chance to spread, the overall 5-year survival rate is 4 times higher than when it's diagnosed in later stages.3,4
The Galleri test is only recommended for use in adults with an elevated risk for cancer, such as those aged 50 or older. It is intended to be used in addition to, and not replace, other cancer screening tests.
