According to scientists, a sensor known as an “electronic nose” may be able to identify chemical variations in a person’s breath that indicate cancer. The breath test was found to be able to identify prostate, breast, lung and bowel cancers by making a distinction between healthy and malignant breath.
Although this technology is still in its earliest stages of development, the clear usefulness of this tool could be a huge step in diagnosing these types of cancer earlier than before. The study that gave way to this report, which was published in the British Journal of Cancer, was conducted using 177 participants. Each person’s breath was tested to detect whether cancer was present or not.
