Genetic test could pick out 'ultra-high risk' bone marrow cancer patients
A new genetic test could help doctors pick out patients with the bone marrow cancer multiple myeloma who are at 'ultra-high risk' of their cancer progressing aggressively early on.
Urine test could reduce unnecessary prostate cancer biopsies
Unnecessary prostate cancer biopsies could be reduced by 60 percent thanks to new research from the University of East Anglia.
An understudied cause of cancer:  Mutations in regulators of cell signaling
Mutations in a vital class of regulatory molecules are an underappreciated cause of cancer because they impair the function of ‘G’ proteins, a versatile and vast family of signaling switches that underlie innumerable biological facets of life itself.
Cancer drug shortages leave Mexican kids fighting for life
Five-year-old Dhana Rivas is fighting for her life on two fronts, fending off the acute lymphoblastic leukemia eating away at her frail body while her family simultaneously battles the shortage of cancer drugs plaguing Mexico.
Use nutrition to reduce cancer risk
Today, seven in 10 Americans are obese or overweight. The more overweight you are, the greater your risk for heart disease and cancers of the breast, colon and prostate. Maintaining a healthy weight is a major part of disease prevention.
Bile duct cancer treatment potential boost from tailored medication: Study
Treatment of patients suffering from bile duct cancer could be improved by tailoring medication to the levels of a key protein in people with the disease, according to new research.
Vapers show chemical changes in their genome linked to cancer
Biologically important changes in DNA seen in smokers are also being found in people who vape, according to a new study published in the journal Epigenetics.
Don’t believe apps claiming they can detect skin cancer
So many minor inconveniences can now be solved via phone app, it makes sense that basic healthcare is on its way to becoming one of them. In the past few years, apps that purport to do things like manage diabetes, use period tracking data to warn users about PCOS, and identify potentially cancerous skin lesions have cropped up. But a new review published Monday in the BMJ raises serious concerns about that third category.
New method to detect early-stage cancer identified
A new method to detect cancer in its early stages using a targeted MRI contrast agent that binds to proteins has been identified by a team of researchers led by Georgia State University Regents' Professor Jenny Yang.
GI bleeding may signal colon cancer in patients on blood thinners
Gastrointestinal bleeding in patients taking blood thinners for an irregular heartbeat should prompt doctors to check for colon cancer, a new study advises.
Assessing 'stickiness' of tumor cells could improve cancer prognosis
A team of researchers led by the University of California San Diego has created a device that measures how ‘sticky’ cancer cells are, which could improve prognostic evaluation of patient tumors. The device is built with a microfluidic chamber that sorts cells by their physical ability to adhere to their environment.
Reducing lung cancer risk through radon testing
Lung cancer is the second deadliest form of cancer in both men and women, after prostate and breast cancer. Lung cancer is cancer that begins in the lungs and most often occurs in people who smoke.
Cervical cancer cases soaring among women in their late 20s
Cervical cancer cases are soaring among women in their late 20s, even though the virus behind it has almost been eliminated in younger generations, new figures show.
Cervical cancer could be eliminated in England, experts say
Experts say cervical cancer could be eliminated in England through a combination of the vaccine and NHS screening, which will now test every woman for HPV, the virus that causes most cases of the disease.
AI system 'near perfect' at spotting prostate cancer
In another step toward using artificial intelligence (AI) in medicine, a new study shows that computers can be trained to match human experts in judging the severity of prostate tumors.
