if my blood tests are normal can i have cancer

 

Fear of getting cancer is one of the stressors that sometimes makes people repeatedly ask the health care system for blood tests. Doctors often hear the question from people that:

If my blood tests are normal can i have cancer?

Our medical team will answer this question later in this article.

A normal blood test and a normal CBC cannot rule out a person with cancer.

Sometimes a simple blood test, even a normal CBC (which measures the number of different types of blood cells) along with your symptoms and clinical examination will guide your doctor to request further tests for a correct diagnosis.

 

It is important to know that many types of cancer are associated with a normal blood test, and it is interesting to note that there are many non-cancerous conditions and problems that are associated with a completely abnormal blood test.

So do not think of blood tests as a means of finding out about cancer.
