In this month’s podcast we bring you highlights from the ASCO conference – the world’s largest cancer conference, including two new melanoma drugs, and a drug that could prevent breast cancer in women at high risk.

Plus, we hear how the number of lung cancer patients receiving surgery has increased by 50 per cent in five years, and take an in-depth look at a report comparing cancer care in England to the rest of the world.

And finally, we’ve got a special report looking at whether mobile phones increase the risk of cancer – should we be worried?
