This month, a new trial looks at the cancer-fighting properties of the curry chemical curcumin, while we take a look at the reasons why cancer deaths in middle age have fallen.

Plus, we hear why it’s important that the new prostate cancer drug abiraterone has been approved by NICE, and highlight a concerning study revealing poorer cancer survival in men with mental illness.

And finally, we bring you our highlights from the recent ASCO Conference in Chicago – the biggest cancer conference in the world.
