At present, some blood tests, including CT scans, are done to diagnose lung cancer, but such tests delay the diagnosis of the disease.

But now experts have claimed to have discovered a new method, which will be possible to diagnose the disease at the beginning.

According to the research published in the medical journal Plos, experts from other countries, including the United States, Britain and India, tested the breath of 414 people to discover a new method.

Most of them , 156 people , had cancer but were not treated.

There were 113 people in the study who were selected from families who had a history of lung cancer and smoked.

While 80 volunteers in the study were absolutely healthy, they did not even smoke, while 65 volunteers were found to have binine nodes in their lungs.

The experts conducted breath tests of all the volunteers and noted the presence of special chemicals in their breath through a breathing machine.

According to experts, people who had volatile organic compounds in the human body and blood in their breath were diagnosed with cancer. The study found that the presence of seven types of chemicals in the human breath in a computerized breath-testing machine means a diagnosis of cancer in it.

That is, if seven types of chemicals are found in the breath of any human in the machine, then they will be diagnosed with lung cancer.

On the other hand, experts who have studied lung cancer for a long time believe that the seven chemicals being talked about can also be released from human breath due to various other reasons.

According to experts, all the chemicals released from the human body or blood come out through the breath after accumulating in the lungs, so usually different chemicals released simultaneously from the breath do not mean cancer.

The experts also said that there needs to be more research on the new ways of treating lung cancer that have been found.
