The latest news in cancer research, health and policy by Cancer Research UK.
We cover developments in cancer treatments, research into cancer risk and diagnosis as well as the latest cancer science stories. You'll also find analysis and comment on health and cancer policy.
Advanced imaging technology is helping our scientists understand how key molecules fuel the growth of breast cancer cells.
Inherited gene faults are more common among men with advanced prostate cancer than in those with localised disease.
An analysis of the complete genetic code of hundreds of breast tumours could lead to more personalised care for patients.
We explore how we got to where we are today with DNA sequencing and the science behind it.
A gene test may improve the way doctors treating women with early-stage breast cancer identify those who can safely avoid post-surgery chemotherapy.
We explore the latest research from our scientists in Manchester that's tracking how melanomas respond to treatment by analysing patient blood samples.
A new study from our scientists has found that treating melanoma cells with an HIV drug could make them more sensitive to a 'targeted' cancer drug.
Scientists have found a crucial link between a gene often found to be overactive in cancer cells, and tumours’ ability to hide from the immune system.
As part of an international collaboration, our researchers have uncovered a link between a rare genetic syndrome and childhood brain tumours.
