A category of lipids known as sphingolipids may be an important link in the relationship between diet, inflammation, and cancer.
Active smokers more knowledgeable than former smokers or nonsmokers, and often cite urologist as source of information.
A new study has found that patients who received chest radiation for Wilms tumor may be more susceptible to breast cancer later in life, due to their radiation exposure.
For black women and Hispanic women, obesity increases postmenopausal risk of estrogen receptor (ER)-negative and progesterone receptor-positive breast cancer.
Diet quality before ovarian cancer diagnosis is associated with both mortality and recurrence.
New research that provides a better understanding of pancreatic cancer may help identify those people at increased risk.
Adoption of five key healthy behaviors is linked with a reduction in the risk of developing bowel cancer.
A recent study found no link between bra wearing and increased breast cancer risk among postmenopausal women.
By analyzing the DNA sequence of patients at different stages of leukemia, researchers have discovered mutations in genes that lead to childhood leukemia of the acute lymphoblastic type, the most common childhood cancer.
Postmenopausal women who in the past 4 years had undertaken regular physical activity equivalent to at least 4 hours of walking per week had a lower risk for invasive breast cancer compared with women who exercised less
The PALB2 gene is potentially one of the most important genes associated with breast cancer after the BRCA1/2 genes.
Diet and nutrition are significant factors in preventing hepatic diseases progressing to hepatocellular carcinoma, and coffee is high on the list of good foods.
Mutations in PALB2 and germline mutations in the multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) tumor-suppressor gene causing MEN1 correlate with increased breast cancer risk, according to two studies.
This fact sheet examines the relationship between secondhand smoke and cancer risk.
Women who recently used birth control pills containing high-dose estrogen and a few other formulations had an increased risk for breast cancer, whereas women using some other formulations did not, according to recent data.
A new study shows how a genetic defect in a specific hormonal pathway may make people more susceptible to developing melanoma.
Researchers describe a novel approach to preventing cervical cancer. The study findings showed a reduction in cervical cancer risk after removal of a discrete population of cervical cells called squamocolumnar junction cells.
Cell phone emit radiation that can be absorbed by human tissue; however, that does not mean that cell phones can cause cancer. An important factor is that cell phone emit non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation—the kind of radiation emitted by microwave—not ionizing radiation—the kind that comes from x-rays.
Lifestyle factors such as overeating, smoking, drinking too much and not enough exercises may be to blame for a sharp rise in liver and skin cancer cases.
Four new genes have been added to the growing list of those known to cause increased breast cancer risk when mutated.
Researchers at New York University College of Dentistry and at University of California San Francisco are investigating a potential association between oral cancers and chronic microbial diseases of the oral cavity.
New research confirms a vulnerability to lung cancer can be inherited and implicates the BRCA2 gene as harboring one of the involved genetic mutations.
Approximately 70% of women who have both breasts removed following a breast cancer diagnosis do so despite a very low risk of facing cancer in the healthy breast, new research has found.
In estrogen receptor (ER)+ breast cancer, obesity is positively associated with breast cancer mortality only among pre-/peri-menopausal women, according to new research.
