cancer

I am wondering what tests need to be done to check if cancer has spread thru the body.. is it scans.. or MIR's.. how much can b told from blood tests?

CT SCANS, MRI'S, PET SCANS ARE ALL USED TO CHECK FOR CANCER.  I HAD 2 DIFFERENT KINDS OF CANCER REMOVED FROM ONE OF MY BREAST.  MY ONCOLOGIST SAID THAT ONE  OF THE 2 DOES NOT SHOW ON BLOOD TEST.
I HAVE REGULAR CT SCANS TO CHECK FOR IT, BLOOD TEST FOR THE OTHER.
I HOPE THIS HELPS.
