A tumor is abnormal growth of cells and can be both cancerous and non-cancerous. The non-cancerous tumor is called a benign tumor, while the cancerous tumor is known as a malignant tumor. In benign tumor, cells don’t grow, and sometimes growth happens slowly. On the other hand, malignant tumor affects other surrounding tissues and therefore causes cancer, but in some cases, even benign tumor can press nerves and blood vessels. The severity of the disease provides the base for the treatment after analysis. Healthcare professionals first try medication to dissolve the tumor, and then subsequently perform surgery if it causes discomfort and becomes more prominent.
Immediately after surgery, doctors check whether it is cancerous or non-cancerous tissue. This way, they clear their doubts regarding cancerous growth in cases where cancer appears as a result of the recommended lab tests.
If you or someone you know had major surgery to remove the tumor. What to do next?
Immediately after surgical removal of the tumor, patients are given their tissue sample. Patients need to be sure that the tested tissue sample is related to them. In hospitals, there is an extensive collection of samples. Although technicians work well to protect sample blocks but still, there is the scope of human error such as wrong labeling, mix-up of blocks, etc.
What happens if a person goes for chemo or radiation therapy without having cancer?
DNA Forensic Laboratory has conducted various DNA tests to match DNA with preserved tissue samples. A few reports showed conflicting results. There were cases where patients started treatment immediately after the doctor confirmed cancerous growth without rechecking the preserved specimen. Patients began taking chemotherapy or radiation sessions. Consequently, it reduced their immune response and hence, became more prone to otherwise treatable diseases. False treatment led to the death of the patients in some cases. Therefore, DNA matching with suspected cancerous tissue blocks plays a significant role.
How to get your DNA sample matched with the preserved specimen?
Contact our representative will guide you thoroughly regarding the DNA testing procedure. There are two ways through which people can submit DNA samples.
Customers can order a DNA sample collection kit online. They can get a DNA sample by rubbing sterile swabs from inside of the cheeks. After that, customers need to fill the consent form and send the collected sample to the laboratory along with the tissue blocks. Clients can make payments online, and the full amount in advance provides immediate delivery of reports to the clients when it gets ready.
