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.
