    It can have an odour but not generally detectable by humans. Dogs can smell it and some have been trained to 'alert' on the smell to identify the location.

    I don't think it has an olfactory sense, unless it is nose cancer

    Only to creatures with a superior sense of smell like dogs, and then it's not a guarantee.

    Dogs can tell when someone has cancer.

    Only to certain dogs.

    Some cancers cause molecular changes that can be detected by analysing the released molecules. I read the other month about a new test for lung cancer that works by detecting the aroma given off solely by the cancerous lung cells.

    There is some evidence that dogs, with their profound sense of smell, may be able to detect cancer.
