Because it’s Breast Cancer Awareness month, the October podcast is a special breast cancer edition. In the news, we find out whether computers could replace doctors when it comes to looking at mammograms, and reveal the worrying gap in breast cancer survival between rich and poor.
Cancer information nurse Becky Partridge tells us the best way to be breast aware – it’s not all about looking for lumps – and we hear from a breast cancer survivor who’s braving the North Sea to raise money for our vital research. Plus Professor Helen Hurst talks about her research into breast tumours that have become resistant to the drug tamoxifen, and shares her hopes for the future of treatment for the disease.
