New blood test that can detect 10 different types of cancer YEARS before someone gets ill


A blood test that can detect 10 types of cancer potentially years before someone becomes ill has been described as the 'holy grail' of cancer research.

Scientists in the US have found a simple test can pick up early signs of cancers including breast, ovarian, bowel and lung cancer.

It works by picking up fragments of DNA released into the blood by fast-growing cancer cells.

In a study of more than 1,400 people, the triple test achieved up to 90% accuracy.
