Circulating Tumor Cells
Know if You Have Circulating Cancer Cells – from a simple blood test
With Circulating Tumor Cell Tests (CTC’s), a negative result could give you a peace of mind, however knowing the presence of cancer cells in the early stage is critical to improve treatment outcomes. Therefore, at SC21, we provide you the state-of-the-art cancer screening by detecting the Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs) at early stages of cancer development. CTCs are cancer cells that detach from a primary tumor and travel through the bloodstream around the body. It could be served as a strong indicator for the presence of particular types of cancer.

See if You Have Circulating Cancer Cells
This test can directly detect the presence of Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in the early stage of cancer. If the cancer is detected early, the successful rate of treatment will be higher.
CTCs are cancer cells which have broken away from the primary tumor and have entered the blood stream where they circulate and have the potential to generate metastatic cancers. These cells can be isolated and identified and there is growing interest in their detection for the following purposes:
• The early detection and diagnosis of new cancers
• Monitoring existing cancers
• Prognosis – providing information about the risk of recurrence of a current or old cancer • In combination with other Cancer blood tests for a clearer understanding
Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs) are cells that have detached from the primary tumor and flow into the blood or lymphatic circulation creating a secondary tumor. Despite their rare population, these cells exhibit metastatic attributes and are related to cancer progression.
