Does anyone know what the test is called? Grant mentioned a brush that gets rubbed on the lesion and sent to a lab could have prevented his ordeal. It's an inspiring story with a happy ending, and a very positive message. I'm glad he shared it with us.

It's called OralCDX. As I understand it, the test could actually discover problem cells before they develop into cancer. It is an amazing story, but to think that the whole thing could have been avoided by testing the lesion with a brush. Ouch!
