In this month’s podcast we find out whether genetic testing could cut the number of women needing breast screening, and how a £20 blood test could improve survival from ovarian cancer.

Plus, good news and bad news – as three new radiotherapy centres open in the UK, a new report reveals that government spending cuts could hamper cancer research in the future.

Finally, as the sporting world remembers golfer Seve Ballasteros, we find out about the latest developments in brain tumour research.
