Cancer diagnostics involve procedures and tests to confirm the presence of cancer and help in the identification of the precise tumor location, extent, type, and stage. A detailed and accurate cancer diagnosis is the major step for developing a customized cancer treatment plan. Owing to the advancements in technologies, there are a number of diagnostic tools introduced for the detection of cancers. Once suspected, the diagnosis usually takes place under the supervision of oncopathologists, pathologists, and imaging radiologists.
