Cancer and odour

This may seem a strange subject and I dont mean to be offensive, just curious because i have read that sniffer dogs can smell cancer on people 98% accurate in some trials. Why is this tool, if I can call it that, under used by primary care. so much for scans, etc, in early diagnosis. I have noticed a smell on me, kind of musty or sweet smell, its in my clothes, on my skin, I can only describe it as musty or sweet,, sometimes like spice. Nothing unpleasant just different. My doctor looked at me oddly when I told her . I noticed an unusual smell with my Mother and a colleague, both had had chemo by the time I could smell it on them.
