This month we find out how the breast cancer drug tamoxifen could help prevent the disease in women at high risk, and look at the latest research linking alcohol to cancer. We also take a look at new statistics about survival from bowel cancer surgery, and find out why some hospitals may be doing better than others around the UK.

Plus, as new legislation comes into force in England and Wales banning under-18s from using sunbeds, new figures show more than two under-35s are diagnosed with malignant melanoma – the most dangerous form of skin cancer – every day. And we take an in-depth look at the Government’s new tobacco control plan, and discuss whether the proposed measures will really help to cut smoking rates.
