The good news is there’s no reason to be concerned about deodorants, bras, plastics and milk when it comes to breast cancer risk.
A new study has estimated the ages at which women with faults in two particular genes are most at risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer.
New research predicts that 2 in 3 cancers are ‘due to bad luck’, we look at why the story is a bit more complicated than that.
We explore how clinical trials are run, and hear from a patient about what it’s like taking part in a cancer clinical trial.
Recent research has reinforced the need for all women with ovarian cancer to receive genetic testing, but they aren’t. We explore why.
We explore a new revolutionary gene editing technology called CRISPR that’s taking labs by storm as scientists look to understand the genetics behind cancer.
Women who carry an inherited fault in the gene BRIP1 are over three times more likely to develop ovarian cancer than those without the fault.
Find out how, with thanks from Cancer Research UK scientists, bowel cancer treatment has “phenomenally” improved from when Nicola’s mother had the disease.
We look at the science behind media stories about a ‘simple blood test’ that apparently can ‘predict breast cancer’.
Following wide media coverage of a study linking eating large amounts of red meat and breast cancer, we explain why the evidence just isn’t there yet.
