Please register below and one of our colleagues will contact you to schedule an appointment for consultation and blood sampling. After we receive your sample, we will send the results to you within fourteen days, including a detailed explanation from which it can be determined if further actions are necessary.
The current death rate of lung cancer is 80-84% it’s five-year survival rate only improved by 6-8% percentage in the past 30 years, in survive Hungary it is still around 16%. Considering the incidence of lung cancer, we face one of the deadliest types of cancer: more people die from lung cancer each year than from breast, prostate, and colon cancers together.
One of the reasons behind the aforementioned fact is that lung cancer is extremely difficult to detect. According to the statistics of the National Foundation for Cancer Research only 16% of the lung cancer cases are detected at an early stage. Since lungs are an internal organ, they can hardly be examined and the disease only show visible symptoms once it has already spread. It is a well-known fact that the main reason behind lung cancer is heavy smoking. If you’re above the age of 55 and have been smoking in the past decades it means you might be threatened by developing lung cancer disease. What is not widely know is the fact that even if you haven’t smoked a single cigarette in your life you can be threatened by this disease if you’re a subject to any of the factors below:
- Environmental exposure: It is also well-known that some exposures including asbestos, chromium and arsenic. Indoor and outdoor air pollution like smoke inhalation from burning wood at home and vehicle fumes in the outdoor traffic may also be contributing factors,
Certain paint are also carcinogenic, and inhaling paint fumes on daily basis can lead to cancer
- Radon: Another potential risk factor is radon. Radon is a decay product of uranium-238, as well as radium-226, and possesses the capability of damaging respiratory epithelium via emissions of alpha particles. Radon is known to be present in soil, rock, and groundwater and due to this, it can accumulate in homes.
- Genetic factors: Risk develop lung cancer both in smokers and in non-smokers partly determined by genetic factors, genetic studies have shown that those with a family history of lung cancer are at increased risk
- Second-hand smoke: Several studies suggest that 15-35 percent of the lung cancer cases is due to second-hand smoke exposure. There is also an increased risk for non-smokers that have a spouse that is a smoker
- Second-hand smoke: Several studies suggest that 15-35 percent of lung cancer cases are due to second-hand smoke exposure. Consequently, there is detectable increased risk for non-smokers that have a spouse who is smoking
At Biosystems we believe that the best way to increase survival of this deadly disease is early detection, importantly as early as possible. If you’re above the age of 55 and you used to smoke at least half pack of cigarette per day it means that you have high risk for developing lung cancer Therefore, we would like to invite you to participate in our free early detection program where we aim to measure the risk of developing or having lung cancer. Enabled with patented new technology we’re able to determine the level of risk through a simple blood test.
