QCancer: an approach to improve cancer diagnosis for general practitioners


Cancer diagnosis is difficult in the primary care setting because many symptoms are common for tumors and benign conditions. This is more complicated with healthy patients or for young people.

A large analysis of data implemented in UK is the base for the development of a tool called “QCancer” , a model for men and women that estimate risks of multiple cancers according to baseline risk factors, patterns of symptoms and specific clinical conditions.

The tool is available free at www.QCancer.org
