Thinking about the possibility of cancer can be overwhelming, but taking steps to find cancer early can help you feel more in control. In fact, when cancers are diagnosed early before they have had a chance to spread, the overall 5-year survival rate is 4x higher than when they are diagnosed in later stages. The Galleri Multi-Cancer Early Detection Test detects more than 50 types of cancer, many of which are not commonly screened for today, through a simple blood draw. Current data suggest the the test can identify cancer 4 years before most current methods. The Galleri test does not detect all cancers nor does it measure your genetic risk of developing cancer in the future. It should be used in addition to other screening tests recommended by our healthcare provider. Grail Inc's list price for the Galleri test is $949. Your out of pocket price varies depending on insurance and your medical qualifications. Plus, the results can be used to strategically choose a health insurance plan and/or life insurance policy that is tailored to your future needs.
