Obese men were more likely to have precancerous lesions detected in their benign prostate biopsies compared with nonobese men, and they were at a greater risk for subsequently developing prostate cancer, according to a new study.
White people who have types of skin cancer other than melanoma may be at increased risk of having other forms of cancer in the future, according to a new study.
A new analysis has found that the loss or amplification of particular DNA regions contributes to the development of prostate cancer, and that patients with two of these DNA changes have a high likelihood of dying from the disease.
After more than 11 years of following a European cohort of 283,827 women, 1,059 of whom had in situ cancer, the authors of a recently published study found no association between exercise and risk of developing the disease.
People with particular variations in a stretch of DNA within the FTO gene, called intron 8, could be at greater risk of developing melanoma.
The final data from a phase II study confirmed the high degree of activity of quizartinib in persons with acute myeloid leukemia.
Elevated familial risk for many cancers even when parents are diagnosed at 70 years or older.
Heart failure is relatively common in older women undergoing breast cancer treatment, but trastuzumab therapy appears to raise the risk even more.
Excessive levels of interleukin-15 initiate large granular lymphocyte (LGL) leukemia, but also represent a promising therapeutic target.
Elevated levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) may be associated with increased mortality from all causes and from cancer, particularly lung cancer.
The risks and benefits of biopsies done for research need to be better represented in study protocols and informed consents, say researchers.
Second study shows no increased risk of cancers from screening mammography scatter radiation.
The risk of developing leukemia is significantly increased for the 110,654 workers who helped clean up after the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear power plant accident. The results of this 20-year study may help scientists to better define the cancer risk associated with low doses of radiation from medical diagnostic radiation procedures.
Two new instruments are valid and reliable in identifying risk factors and ostomy complications.
Two separate research teams identified genes that can predict outcomes in men with castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC).
An intrauterine device releasing the progestin levonorgestrel was effective therapy for early endometrial cancer in women not fit for surgery.
When measures are implemented to ensure that radiation protocols are followed, deviations decrease and overall survival improves in patients with cancer.
For ovarian cancer and perhaps other cancer types, cell stiffness may be a useful biomarker to measure relative metastatic potential.
Assessing how water moves through breast tissue may reduce false-positive findings among women undergoing dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI.
A simple three-question survey has been developed to help clinicians identify women who may be experiencing symptoms of ovarian cancer.
Two of three main recommendations for colonoscopy surveillance are now supported by stronger evidence than they were in 2006.

Young women who have the BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene mutation feel differently about their options for relationships, treatment, childbearing, and careers. In this study, researchers evaluated the psychosocial consequences of carrying the BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations.
The mailing of fecal occult blood test (FOBT) kits boosted colorectal cancer screening rates in a low-income, racially diverse patient population.
Lying face-down was associated with a reduced amount of irradiated lung and heart during breast cancer treatment compared with lying on the back.
