Cancer Research UK: Episodes

We’re reporting back from the 10th NCRI cancer conference, with a look at communicating cancer risks and a lifetime in research for scientist Ron Laskey.
We look at the challenges of late diagnosis in an NHS stretched to breaking point, chase the evidence on skirt size and cancer risk, and hear a personal story of progress.
We look at aspirin for cancer prevention, obesity and cancer risk, why NICE turned down new breast and prostate cancer drugs, and focus on how to make progress in pancreatic cancer.
How the pill affects cancer risk, making tumours more sensitive to treatment, and fighting cancer with physics.
How to stay safe in the summer sun, the shocking anal cancer statistics nobody wants to talk about, and why we need more teens on trials.
How deprivation is linked to 19,000 cancer deaths a year, why Wikipedia falls short and how we’re improving it, plus pancreatic cancer and immunotherapy.
We hear about a groundbreaking new clinical trial for lung cancer, rising skin cancer rates, and our new 5-year research strategy.
We look back over 50 years of the Epstein-Barr virus – the first human cancer virus – with some of the key researchers involved in its discovery.
We take a look at the latest worldwide cancer stats, highlight the importance of cancer surgery, and discuss the issues around oesophageal cancer.
