Dr Oz: Pancreatic Cancer Test
Dr Oz said that he is very impressed by his next guest, a science prodigy who discovered a groundbreaking test for Pancreatic Cancer. His name is Jack Andraka, and he was also recently featured on an episode of 60 Minutes.
Andraka was a freshman when he hatched the idea for this Pancreatic Cancer test. Dr Oz compared him to other young discoverers like Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein. At age 14, he came up with a test to detect Pancreatic Cancer in its early stages.

As a result, he won the grand prize at the Intel International Science Fair, which led to an enthusiastic viral video of his acceptance speech. His invention could be a game changer, and early testing shows it is more than 90% accurate. It may save millions thanks to early detection, which so far has not been possible.
