Early Lung Cancer (CDT)

Although 79% of lung cancer cases are preventable, lung cancer accounts for 21% of all cancer deaths in the UK. This makes it the most common cause of cancer death in the UK. Each year, over 45,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with the condition. Most patients are diagnosed at a late stage when curative treatment is no longer possible.

Early Lung Cancer (CDT)

Doctor Cullimore says “Recent research has demonstrated that routine chest X-rays can miss one-quarter of all lung cancers.  This is because it can often be quite difficult to see small, curable lung cancers on an X-ray.  And if they are detected by a chest X-ray, the cancer is usually advanced and the chances of long-term survival are low. Early detection will give you the best chance of fighting the disease. In fact, the 5-year survival rate for early stage detection is 43-73% but for later stage disease it’s as low as 2-13%.  But no medical test is perfect, so it’s important you understand that six out of ten lung cancers will not be detected by an EarlyCDT test. This means a low-level result should always be treated with caution in the presence of symptoms. Common symptoms include a persistent cough, coughing up blood, shortness of breath, aches or pains when breathing, a hoarse voice, loss of appetite, weight loss and extreme tiredness. It is always important to make an appointment to see your own doctor as soon as possible if such symptoms remain unexplained.”

All our tests have been specially designed to be convenient and non-invasive. Once you’ve booked your appointment, full preparation instructions will be provided in your confirmation email or letter. You can continue to eat and drink normally before your appointment, and you’ll also remain fully clothed throughout.

Which readings are included?

Your Early CDT blood test measures your antibody response to seven proteins produced by lung cancer cells. The test result is reported as either a low level, moderate level or high level. Moderate or high level Early CDT test results will be found in 4 out of every 10 individuals with lung cancer. If the Early CDT test result is reported as moderate or high, then it is highly likely that a lung cancer is present. If your results show a moderate or high level the next step is to arrange an urgent appointment to see your own GP. He or she might then make a referral to a chest specialist and/or arrange further investigations such as a CT scan of your chest.
