Overview: Cancer diagnostic testing involves tests and procedures that confirms the presence of disease and identify the correct tumor type, location, extent and stage which will help physician to give the appropriate treatment. Biopsy, imaging tests, nuclear medicine scans, tumor biomarker tests are some of the diagnostic tests used for cancer diagnostics. According to the estimation of National cancer institute, in US around 1.6 million new cases of cancer are diagnosed, and 595,690 people have died due to cancer in 2016. Canada has estimated 202,400 new cases of cancer and nearly 78,000 deaths according to Canadian cancer society in 2016. While in Europe, 1.3 million people were diagnosed in 2015. According to National cancer institute, nearly 60% new cases of cancer are from Asia, Africa, Central and South American countries and nearly 70% of cancer deaths are also from this region. China has witnessed 4.3 million new cases of cancer and 2.8 million deaths in 2015. According to Indian council for medical research, India accounts for 1.4 million new cases of cancer and 736,000 cancer related death in 2016.
