There are many different ways to diagnose cancer. Cancer diagnostic testing involves tests and procedures to confirm the presence of disease and identify the correct tumor type, location, extent and stage. The most common diagnostic tests include biopsy tests (bone marrow, endoscopic, needle biopsy), endoscopy tests (bronchoscopy, colonoscopy, colposcopy, sigmoidoscopy, etc.), diagnostic imaging (CT, MRI, PET, mammography, ultrasound, etc.), and detection of cancer-specific tumor biomarkers. Benign tumors are slow growing tumors and do not invade into other tissues while the malignant tumors are characterized by rapid growth, invasiveness, and potential to colonize in distant organs. The rising prevalence of cancer across the globe is driving the global cancer diagnostics market, whereas higher incidences of cancer and increasing healthcare spending is expected to aid the global tissue diagnostics market.
