August 21, 2017

Extensive cancer screening for individuals who experience unprovoked venous thromboembolism initially may detect more cancer cases than a limited occult screening approach.

However, the difference in proportion of early-stage cancers detected by each approach did not reach statistical significance, according to results of a systematic review and meta-analysis published in Annals of Internal Medicine. Whether the more extensive screening strategy improves patient outcomes also remains unclear, researchers wrote.
