If one has perfect blood tests, could they still have cancer?

Are abdominal cancers detectable by sonograph exam?

  • Yes and yes.Were you looking for a specific tumor?At least,some abdominal cancers are identifiable by sonogram.Colon cancer,for example,would not be.

  • Well, actually I have been have a lot of digestive disconfort + genreal tiredness and light headedness, this after a longer treatment with antibiotics. Doctor performed a sonograph exam on my abdomen and said it was most likely gastro intestinal flora severly damaged by prolonged antibiotic treatment. Its not getting much better after probiotic treatment and im beginging to be extremely worried as i feel very bad. Doctor laughed in my face when i asked him about cancer, he seemed to consider it a ridiculous worry in my condition and I was wondering if he saw thing that way from a scientific basis or just because im 20 years old.
