New Blood Test Could Detect Early Stage Melanoma
Australia’s love affair with the sun sees 14,000 of us diagnosed and 1,700 of us dying from melanoma each year. Melanoma is currently diagnosed by an examination of the skin. This could be about to change, with researchers at Edith Cowan University developing a new blood test that could detect early stage melanoma in up to 80% of patients. Lead researcher, Pauline Zaenker, joined us on The Daily to discuss the breakthrough.
