The Cancer SIGNAL
Welcome to The Cancer SIGNAL, a new podcast presented by GRAIL.
On this monthly podcast, Host Kim Thiboldeaux will explore topics relating to multi-cancer early detection, such as its origin and evolution, the science behind it, and insight into how this technology has the potential to shift the cancer paradigm.
Kim Thiboldeaux has spent her career as a non-profit executive, author, thought leader and patient advocate. She led the Cancer Support Community (CSC) from 2000-2021. Kim has served on some of the leading cancer and health panels and boards in the country including the NIH Novel and Exceptional Technology and Research Advisory Committee, and the National Board of Directors of the Biden Cancer Initiative.
Kim has authored numerous articles and three books focused on navigating the cancer patient experience. Kim hosted an award-winning radio show for 8 years called Frankly Speaking About Cancer. She has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, the Philadelphia Inquirer, among others, and on numerous national and local news programs.
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.
