Early Detection Is Crucial for Timely Intervention

Identifying cancer in its earliest stages dramatically improves outcomes, offering patients more treatment options and a four times better survival rate. However, there are only five officially recommended screenings at this time — breast, cervical, colorectal, lung and prostate. Meanwhile, 70% of cancer-related deaths are caused by cancers that are not screened for.

Galleri offers a reliable bridge in detection, along with the potential peace of mind that comes with knowing you are in the clear.

What If Cancer Markers Are Detected?

You’ll receive a consultation with one of our functional medicine experts to review your test results. If cancer is detected, we will share that information with you at your consultation and offer appropriate follow-up actions, including a referral to local cancer specialists who accept a diagnosis utilizing Galleri screenings.

What If Cancer Is Not Detected?

At your follow-up consultation, you will receive both a professional interpretation of your results and an in-depth health assessment using past medical history, diet, family history and social history to develop a plan to decrease your overall cancer risk and improve your healthspan.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Galleri test is recommended for adults at higher risk, particularly those age 50 and above. However, lower-risk patients and those younger than 50 are also welcome to use Galleri.

Age is the primary risk factor for cancer, with adults over 50 being significantly more likely to develop the disease compared to younger individuals. Regardless of family history, the risk of cancer increases as people age, with only a small percentage being hereditary.

Galleri excels in the areas where current detection is limited. For instance, it can detect more aggressive breast cancers more readily than slower-growing breast cancers, which are often detected on mammograms with a high survival rate.

Galleri tests for more than 50 types of cancer, including but not limited to:

  • Esophagus
  • Kidney
  • Leukemia
  • Liver
  • Lung
  • Merkel Cell Carcinoma
  • Ovary (Fallopian Tube and Primary Peritoneum)
  • Pancreas
  • Small intestine and stomach
  • Uterine (Renal Pelvis, Carcinoma, Carcinosarcoma, Sarcoma)

Yes, Galleri has undergone rigorous testing and validation to ensure reliability and accuracy in cancer detection. The test has demonstrated high sensitivity and specificity in clinical studies.

In one of the most recent studies, Galleri accurately predicted where the cancer started about 88% of the time for patients diagnosed with cancer. This prediction matched up with the actual type of cancer found through further testing. Knowing where the cancer started helps doctors choose the right tests or procedures to confirm the diagnosis and how to best treat the disease.

Using about 20ml of blood, Galleri examines over 100,000 DNA regions and more than a million specific DNA sites to search for signs of cancer. The test focuses on cell-free DNA, distinguishing between the DNA from healthy cells and DNA from cancer cells.

DNA from cancer cells carries unique methylation patterns, which act as a signal indicating the presence of cancer. These patterns also provide clues about the type of tissue or organ where the cancer originated, helping healthcare providers decide on the next steps for diagnosis and treatment.

The Galleri test involves a simple blood draw, typically taking just a few minutes to complete. The entire process, including registration and sample collection, is completed in a single visit to our office.

Galleri results are typically available within two weeks of completing the test. However, this timeline may vary based on laboratory processing times and other factors, including shipping which takes 1-2 business days.

No. Galleri detects current cancer cells using DNA analysis, but it doesn’t assess overall cancer risk like some genetic tests. While genetic tests evaluate predispositions, Galleri focuses solely on early cancer detection, providing a vital tool for intervention. Its strength lies in pinpointing cancerous cells, complementing other screening methods available.
