This month, we hear how a landmark study could revolutionise breast cancer treatment, and take a look at the growing evidence on aspirin and cancer.

We also hear how obesity may be driving rises in kidney and womb cancer rates, while smoking patterns of the past mean that lung cancer continue to rise in women.

Plus, scientists develop the first snap-shot of tiny brain tumours, and we talk to Stephanie Moore MBE about how treatment for bowel cancer has changed since her husband, footballer Bobby Moore, died from the disease.
