Diagnosis

When we say diagnose, we mean the process of identifying a disease by its signs and symptoms. If you present symptoms, your doctor will ask about your medical history and perform a physical exam. In addition, your doctor may order various diagnostic tests, including laboratory tests, imaging procedures, and a biopsy, which will help determine whether cancer is present. These tests help provide an accurate diagnosis, allowing every member of your cancer team to orchestrate as specific a treatment as possible.
