An early warning system is in place to help
When liver cancer does occur, there is a close connection between how advanced it is and the expected outcome.1 The odds of successful treatment are most favorable when the cancer is found in early stages, before it spreads. This is why early detection is so important.2
Among at-risk people who ultimately developed liver cancer, research has linked ongoing testing with a more than doubled chance for early detection vs those who did not participate in routine testing.4,5 Research also found that more frequent testing led to comparably earlier detection. Ongoing testing also improved survival measurements.
The benefit of ongoing testing is early detection
If your doctor has recommended careful watching for liver cancer and ordered tests, it is important to understand why the testing is important.6 Fundamentally, the purpose of ongoing testing is to find the cancer early, when the chance of successful treatment is greatest. When cancer is detected in later stages it is harder to get under control and has worse outcomes.3
Early detection is the key. Today there is a new way to help detect liver cancer—the OncoguardTM Liver solution. This solution includes a single, convenient blood test and a program to help patients stay up-to-date with testing. The benefit of the OncoguardTM Liver solution is its proven ability to help find liver cancer at an early stage of disease.
