In this month’s podcast we find out how US scientists have made an important step toward personalised treatment for cancer, and discuss whether gas hobs can increase cancer risk.
We also hear about new clinical trial results showing that early breast cancer can be treated successfully with fewer, higher doses of radiotherapy.
And our roving reporter Anna Lacey discovers how our researchers in Manchester are developing better ways to deliver radiotherapy to patients with a type of brain tumour known as glioblastoma multiforme.

My auntie has just defeated the battle to cancer, it was a hard time for her but her hair is growing back. If I were to give advice for this I would say be calm and have hope and looking after them as they battle through these tough times!!! Even though I am only eleven I do know alot about cancer and what went on with my Auntie!!
