CAN­CER TEST

Macclesfield Express - - NEWS -

A NEW test for ovar­ian can­cer has been launched at a Mac­cles­field clinic.

The screen­ing method called ROCA was found to be twice as ac­cu­rate as the ex­ist­ing blood test for di­ag­nos­ing the can­cer as a re­sult of the NHS part-funded clin­i­cal trial, which tested thou­sands of women.

The Mac­cles­field Health Hub, on Sun­der­land Street. is one of only four in the coun­try to of­fer the screen­ing.
