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.
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.
Researchers are trying to diagnose lung cancer early through screening, and studying if the benefits of early detection outweigh the harms.
Scientists are turning to crime-mapping tech as a new way to look at cancer.
We don’t always know why never-smokers develop lung cancer, but the data suggests that genetics play a role, as well as environmental or occupational exposures.
Our researcher, Professor Caroline Dive, has received a CBE in this year’s New Year’s Honours list. We spoke to her about her outstanding career.
Two important cancer genes cooperate to make lung cancers more aggressive in mice, according to new research.
