We chat to neurosurgeon Dr Stuart Smith about the differences between benign and cancerous tumours, and how the word ‘benign’ can often be misleading.
There are many unanswered questions about how and why cancer spreads around the body. But one thing we do know is that only some cancers metastasise.
We cover the latest cancer research, including that funded by the charity. We also highlight other relevant material, debunk myths and media scares, and provide links to other helpful resources.
