Melanoma is a type of skin cancer that develops from cells called melanocytes. It’s the 5th most common cancer in the UK, with around 16,200 new cases of melanoma in the UK each year.
Cancer Research UK scientists have developed a new way to analyse blood for evidence of cancer that could be up to ten times more sensitive than previous methods.
We’d like to introduce the latest bunch of scientists that we’ve given funding to head up their own research teams for the first time.
Dave lost his twin brother to skin cancer at just 28. Here, Dave tells us Mark’s inspiring story through his cancer.
Targeted treatment up front improves survival for advanced prostate cancer, and we predict a change in thinking for precision cancer medicine.
