Greater Flint Physician Uses Specialty Lab Test to Detect Malignant Cancers Much Sooner

Share Article

Dr. Megan Strauchman of the Natural Wellness & Pain Relief Centers in Grand Blanc and Richmond is now using the Oncolab AMAS test to detect malignant cancers sooner than imaging and biopsies.

The AMAS test... can detect cancers far earlier than even conventional imaging, giving our patients an advantage in attacking their cancers far sooner.

Dr. Megan Strauchman, medical director of the Natural Wellness & Pain Relief Centers in Grand Blanc, is now performing a highly specialized type of cancer screening test, called AMAS.

The AMAS test measures blood levels of an antibody that is elevated during active cancer almost regardless of the location or type of malignancy. This antibody is short-lived (unlike the long-lived antibodies assessed for exposure to infectious diseases, such as tuberculosis), and therefore the test is valid even in people with previous cancer diagnosis in both recent and distant past. Clinical studies revealed its accuracy to be greater than 99% with a wide range of malignancies, including breast, lung, brain, colorectal and skin cancers, lymphomas, leukemia, and cancers of the uterus, cervix, ovary, anus, stomach, esophagus, prostate, bladder, urethra, kidney, testis, thyroid and larynx, as well as a variety of sarcomas and other connective tissue cancers. This allows for extremely early detection of cancer activity in the body, months to years before any other evidence of malignancy can be detected clinically.

The AMAS test has been utilized in cancer assessments by many clinicians in the past decade and several peer-reviewed scientific publications have validated its high accuracy (far higher, in fact, than biopsies of suspected body tissues or organs). Even the U.S. government, which is usually slow to assess new diagnostic studies, has approved the reimbursement of AMAS by Medicare.

Who should obtain the AMAS test?

  • Anyone with a family history of cancer.
  • Anyone who has had cancer in the past and who is concerned about recurrence.
  • Anyone currently being treated for cancer.
  • Anyone who is under significant toxic, chemical, electromagnetic, and/or emotional stresses

and lowered immune resistance.

  • Anyone with equivocal (uncertain, ambiguous) clinical findings based on manual tests or

imaging studies (mammography, ultrasound, etc.).

In honor of October being National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Dr. Strauchman is offering this testing to patients for a special rate, even to those without insurance. "The AMAS test is not used by most physicians here in Michigan. It can detect cancers far earlier than even conventional imaging, giving our patients an advantage in attacking their cancers far sooner, whether it be with conventional treatment or in concert with complementary cancer therapies and lifestyle modifications."
