Cancer Screening Male Profile (CheckUp M4) is addressed to those who want to be tested because of family history of the disease or just to not worry. Of course, this test should be accompanied by a complete CheckUp, as cancer can occur with a variety of signs and symptoms.
But beware! Levels of tumor markers alone, cannot be evidence of malignancy. Clinical examination and possibly other laboratory tests are necessary.
Areas of the body covered include the Bladder, Brain, Chest, Colon, Liver, Lungs, Esophagus, Gastrointestinal System, Pancreas, Prostate, Testicles, Thyroid and Stomach.
The Cancer Screening Male Profile now includes the newest marker for colon cancer, the measurement of M2-PK.
