In this month’s podcast we bring you news of a test that could help doctors decide which treatment is best for specific groups of breast cancer patients, and hear how a bill to protect children from the dangers of sunbeds has taken another step towards becoming law.

We also look forward to the coming summer with a special focus on the sun and skin cancer, after shocking new figures show that melanoma rates are rising, particularly in ‘baby boomers’. We investigate why this is happening, reveal the dangers of sunburn, and explain how to protect yourself this summer.

Finally, we look at the complex issue of vitamin D. We all need a bit of sunshine in our lives to keep healthy, so how does this fit with advice to stay safe in the sun?
