Galleri Early Detection Cancer Test

Now offered at Inspired Health Group, a simple blood test that detects a cancer signal across more than 50 types of cancer.

Beating cancer starts with knowing you have it.

Finding cancer early is important to improve treatment outcomes and survival. 

The vast majority of cancers show no symptoms until later stages when treatment options may be limited.

Today, many cancers are found too late when outcomes are often deadly.

 

Routine screening is regularly recommended for ONLY 5 cancers today:  

  1. Breast - Mammography
  2. Cervical - Cervical Cytology (Pap smear), high risk human papillomavirus (hrHPV) test
  3. Colorectal - Colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, fecal tests
  4. Lung - Low dose computed tomography
  5. Prostate - Prostate specific antigen (PSA) test

 

Finding cancer early can make a difference.

When cancers are diagnosed early before they have had the chance to spread, the overall 5-year survival rate is 4x higher than when diagnosed in later stages. 

 

 

 


How does the Galleri test work?

  • All cells in your body release DNA into the bloodstream
  • But, DNA from cancer cells is different from the DNA of healthy cells.
  • The Galleri test looks at the DNA in your blood to determine if any of it may have come from cancer cells and if the answer is yes, where in the body it is coming from.

Who can benefit?

The Galleri test is recommended for use in adults with an elevated rise for cancer, such as those aged 50 or older. 

The Galleri test is intended to be used in addition to, and not replace, other cancer screening tests recommended for you such as mammography, colonoscopy, PSA or cervical cancer screening.
