Early breast cancer may be detected through breath, urine tests

New utilization of breath and urine tests may be able to screen for early stage breast cancer — the most commonly diagnosed cancer among women in the world.

Breast cancer biomarkers were accurately detected in a new study by researchers at Ben-Gurion University by using two "nose gas" sensors on breath and gas-chromatography mass spectrometry (GC-MS) — a method of testing substances found in urine.

"Breast cancer survival is strongly tied to the sensitivity of tumor detection," co-author of the study, Yehuda Zeiri said in a release. "Accurate methods for detecting smaller, earlier tumors remains a priority (and) our new approach utilizing urine and exhaled breath samples, analyzed with inexpensive, commercially available processes, is non-invasive, accessible and may be easily implemented in a variety of settings."
