Blood test in development could detect 8 cancers, save more lives


​DENVER -- A promising new blood test is in development that could detect multiple types of cancer with a simple blood draw.
 
It’s not ready for release yet, but doctors say one day it could save lives by diagnosing patients in the early stages.
 
That would have been helpful to patients such as Tark Yeager.  He was 39 years old when he was diagnosed with stage four esophageal cancer.
 
“They found 28 tumors throughout my body,” Yeager said.
