When cancer develops in organs such as the lungs, prostate, or breast tissue, it circulates in the blood before spreading to other parts of the body.  A new screening method called a "Liquid Biopsy" filters the blood to find cancer cells, which can help to identify the type of cancer present, if/where it has spread, and whether the treatments that a patient is taking are having an effect.

About 25 companies are working on liquid biopsy technology, and its about 3-5 years away from clinical use.

On Oct. 1, 2009, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer.  I had anticipated that the biopsy findings would be negative and I was rather shocked with this diagnosis.

It was Dr. Samadi himself wanting to speak with both of us to find out exactly what we needed and how he could help us. Dr. Samadi was a true hero in this story. I love him for what he did and would recommend him to anyone who has been diagnosed with prostate cancer.
