A new meta-analysis of 39 studies from around the world reveals a major disadvantage.
Our research has found that cancer DNA forms a unique structure when placed in water. We used this finding to develop a test that can detect cancerous DNA in less than ten minutes.
A urine test for ovarian cancer could increase survival rates from 20% to 90%.
There are currently few effective and non-invasive methods to screen for early stages of cancer. But scientists have now developed a new blood test that promises to detect eight different cancers.
Timely and appropriate investigation of suspicious symptoms, especially blood in the urine, is crucial for the accurate and early diagnosis of bladder cancer.
Pancreatic cancer has long been known as the "silent killer" but why is it so difficult to detect?
Modern medicine is increasing our lifespan. But as we survive diseases and live longer, more of us are succumbing to cancer.
By measuring a cancer cell's DNA in the bloodstream, scientists can get a snapshot of the cancer itself, which is referred as a "liquid biopsy".
Computer-aided decision-making has been shown to help in clinical contexts. But winning over doctors and patients is a different matter.
A new research paper has found some cancers aren't picked up by GPs in the first or second appointments, but it's because cancer is usually an unlikely explanation for a patient's symptoms.
