Early detection saves lives
Detecting cancer early is important. The earlier it is detected, the higher the chance of survival.
with late detection
The overall 5-year survival rate for people with late stage oral cancer is 40%3
with early detection
If diagnosed at an early stage, the overall 5-year survival rate is 84%4

Unfortunately, with today’s practices, only 28% of patients are diagnosed at an early stage3
Reliable results that you can trust
Our CancerDetect™ - Oral & Throat test detects molecular features of oral & throat cancers even in early stages when it is more treatable. The test delivers the highest accuracy currently possible and surpasses the current standard of care - the visual and tactile exam.
Sensitivity refers to a test's ability to designate an individual with a disease as positive. A highly sensitive test means that there are few false-negative results, and thus fewer cases of the disease are missed.
Specificity refers to a test's ability to designate an individual who does not have a disease as negative. A highly specific test means that there are few false-positive results, and thus few false alarms.
