    absolutely! cancer does not show up on a blood test unless it is leukemia.
    very many people have cancer with normal blood test results.
    if it were only so simple to diagnose cancer. there are very many tests that would be performed to help in diagnosing cancer though a blood test is not one of them.
    cancer is not so easy to diagnose, and it depends what type of cancer is suspected.
    the following tests would be done, again depending on the type of cancer:
    x-rays, ct scan, mri, gallium scan, pet scan, and biopsy.

    Jeanilyn,
    What makes you think you might have cancer? What are your symptoms? How long have you had them, and do they come and go or are they always there?
