Inflammation can prevent infections and helps repair injuries. But for people with long-term inflammatory conditions, it can sometimes lead to cancer.
Scientists are taking a leaf out of Darwin’s evolutionary handbook to understand how lung cancer evolves.
Hot drinks have hit headlines today, with new research sparking claims that hot tea ‘doubles the risk of oesophageal cancer’. But how hot is hot? And are the headlines anything to worry about?
Our scientists have uncovered a new marker that’s found on treatment-resistant prostate cancer cells.
Our scientists are rewriting the breast cancer rulebook. By looking at faults in tumour DNA, they’ve found that breast cancer is not 1 but 10 different diseases each with a different risk of coming back or spreading.
Our Grand Challenge scientists at the National Physical Laboratory are using their expertise in measurement to draw a new map of cancer. The team hopes it will point to ways to diagnose and treat the disease.
The roll-out of mobile NHS scanners will save lives from lung cancer. But staff shortages, stop smoking services and treatment inequalities can’t be ignored.
Cervical cancer rates are predicted to fall following the introduction of HPV primary screening this year.
A new cervical cancer test is big news this week. The science behind the headlines is exciting, but it’s a long way from being used in cervical screening.
Blood tests, breath studies and better CT scans could all help detect lung cancers earlier. We investigate the latest research that could inform lung screening.
