Scientists have developed a 10-minute cancer test with a 90 per cent success rate.

The new approach uncovers traces of the disease in a patient's bloodstream.

The cheap and simple test uses a color-changing fluid to reveal the presence of malignant cells anywhere in the body and provides results in less than 10 minutes, according to a new study published in the journal Nature Communications.
