Introducing Early-Detection Testing for Multiple Cancers

71% of cancer deaths are caused by cancers not commonly screened for. However, a revolutionary, multi-cancer early detection test can help change that with a simple blood draw.

The Galleri™ Multi-Cancer Early-Detection Test can detect more than 50+ types of cancer by looking for signals in the blood that may be associated with cancer. When cancer is caught in its early stages treatments and survival rates are greatly improved.

The test at HOA is for people who are 50 and older and have been cancer-free for at least three years. It is a private-pay service, not covered by insurance, that costs $1,499 and requires a $550 payment at the time the visit is scheduled.

Please review all of the information below, then contact our office at 315-472-7504 to find out if the Galleri™ Multi-Cancer Early-Detection Test may be right for you.

How does the Galleri test work?

The Galleri test uses a simple blood draw to check for cancer cells in your bloodstream.

All cells, healthy and cancer cells, contain DNA. The DNA from cancer cells is different from the DNA of healthy cells. As cells grow through their lifecycle and die, DNA is released into the bloodstream. The Galleri test can tell the difference between DNA from cancer cells and DNA from healthy cells.

If a cancer signal is found, the results point to where in the body the cancer is coming from to help us guide your next steps.

Who can benefit from the Galleri test?

The Galleri test is recommended for use in adults with an elevated risk for cancer, such as those aged 50 or older and who are established with a primary care physician. It is not recommended if you are pregnant, 21 years old or younger, or undergoing active cancer treatment. You must be free from cancer for three years.

The Galleri test is intended to be used in addition to, and not replace, other cancer screening tests your healthcare provider recommends.

Important Safety Information

The Galleri test is recommended for use in adults with an elevated risk for cancer, such as those aged 50 or older. The Galleri test does not detect all cancers and should be used in addition to routine cancer screening tests recommended by a healthcare provider. Galleri is intended to detect cancer signals and predict where in the body the cancer signal is located. Use of Galleri is not recommended in individuals who are pregnant, 21 years old or younger, or undergoing active cancer treatment.

Results should be interpreted by a healthcare provider in the context of medical history, clinical signs and symptoms. A test result of “No Cancer Signal Detected” does not rule out cancer. A test result of “Cancer Signal Detected” requires confirmatory diagnostic evaluation by medically established procedures (e.g. imaging) to confirm cancer.

If cancer is not confirmed with further testing, it could mean that cancer is not present or testing was insufficient to detect cancer, including due to the cancer being located in a different part of the body. False-positive (a cancer signal detected when cancer is not present) and false-negative (a cancer signal not detected when cancer is present) test results do occur. Rx only.
