Are you ready for a revolutionary breakthrough in cancer screening? At Missouri Cancer Associates, we are proud to introduce the Galleri® Multi-Cancer Early Detection (MCED) test. This innovative test has the potential to transform the way we detect cancer. Learn more about this groundbreaking technology, its benefits, and who can benefit from it.
What is the Multi-Cancer Early Detection Test?
The Galleri® MCED test is a state-of-the-art cancer screening test designed to identify a shared cancer signal across 50 types of cancer through a simple blood sample. It is a significant advancement in the world of cancer prevention and early detection.
This test can detect types of cancers that currently have no recommended screening tests. It goes further, alerting you to hard-to-detect, aggressive, and often fatal types of cancer, such as pancreatic, ovarian, and esophageal cancers. Early detection can make all the difference, increasing the chances of successful treatment.

Who Can Benefit?
The MCED test is suggested for adults who have a higher risk of cancer, especially those who are 50 years or older. This innovative blood test is meant to complement, not replace, other cancer screening tests that your healthcare provider recommends.
It’s important to note that the MCED test doesn’t identify all types of cancer, and it doesn’t assess your genetic risk for future cancer development. It’s just one valuable tool in the fight against cancer, but it’s not the whole picture. Your healthcare provider can guide you on the best combination of tests to monitor and manage your health effectively.
With Galleri®, you can take control of your health and well-being. Get started on your journey towards early cancer detection.
The MCED Test Has Four Steps
1. See If You’re Eligible – complete the eligibility questionnaire online through missouricancer.com or request and receive a referral from your provider. The MCED test cost is $949 (no covered by insurance; payment options are available).

3. Complete Your Lab Test – Eligible patients will provide a blood sample at Urology Associates lab.
4. Receive Your Test Result – About two weeks after your blood sample is taken, your MCED test results and a clinical action plan from your Urology Associates care team will arrive.
