Parabens, estrogen-mimicking chemicals commonly found in an array of personal care products, may be more dangerous at lower doses than previously thought.
The bacterium that causes Q fever, an infectious disease that humans contract from animals, is associated with an increased risk of lymphoma.
All relatives of patients with colorectal cancer are at increased risk for this cancer, regardless of age at diagnosis of the index patient in the family, according to a recent study. These findings may impact guidance regarding screening.
Young black women with a breast cancer diagnosis at age 50 years or younger have a much higher BRCA mutation frequency than that previously reported among young white women with breast cancer.
Long-term, continuous use of low-dose aspirin and nonaspirin NSAIDs is associated with decreased colorectal cancer risk, according to the results of a population-based, case-control study.
A newly published AGA guideline for colorectal cancer (CRC) recommends all patients with a new diagnosis of CRC undergo testing for Lynch syndrome.
A link between malaria and Burkitt's lymphoma was first described more than 50 years ago, but how a parasitic infection could turn immune cells cancerous has remained a mystery. Now, researchers have demonstrated in mice that B cell DNA becomes vulnerable to cancer-causing mutations.
Organ transplant recipients are twice as likely to develop melanoma as people who do not undergo a transplant, and are three times more likely to die of the dangerous skin cancer, new research suggests.
A regular regimen of aspirin can reduce additional cancer risk for obese individuals, according to study data.
Risk of cancer in the prostate gland may be caused by exposure to bisphenol A (BPA) during organ developmentAugust 26, 2015
A prostate organoid grown from human embryonic stem cells has enabled researchers to show that exposure to bisphenol A (BPA) may increase prostate cancer risk.
A large-scale genetic study of the links between telomere length and risk for five common cancers finds that long telomeres are associated with an increased risk of lung adenocarcinoma. No significant associations between telomere length and other cancer types or subtypes were observed.
A combination of clime and lack of proper protection has left many Iraq and Afghanistan veterans at a higher risk for skin cancer.
Researchers have found that spending more leisure time sitting was associated with an increased risk for developing cancer in women.
Women ages 50 to 69 years who attend mammography screening reduce their risk of dying from breast cancer by 40% compared with women who are not screened, according to the latest evidence.
No difference seen in distant disease-free intervals for those with versus those without a positive family history, say researchers.
New research indicates that men with naturally high levels of the female hormone estrogen may have a greater risk of developing breast cancer.
Statin use by patients diagnosed with lung cancer in the year prior or after their diagnosis is linked to lower related mortality.
The Women's Health Initiative Studies, a large prospective study of lung cancer, found no strong associations between lung cancer risk and a wide range of reproductive history variables.
A mutation of the gene ETV6 has been pinpointed as the heritable, genetic cause of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), according to a study.
Breast cancer survivors have a higher risk of developing thyroid cancer, especially within 5 years of their breast cancer diagnosis, according to a national database analysis.
Researchers compared tiny variations in the genetic make-up of more than 120,000 women of European ancestry, with and without breast cancer, and identified 15 new genetic variations linked to a higher risk of the disease.
A family history of prostate cancer among first-degree relatives may increase a woman's risk of developing breast cancer, according to a new study.
A worldwide study of the DNA of 100,000 women has discovered two new genetic variants associated with an increased risk of breast cancer.
This review discusses common risk factors, treatment, and preventive measures for aspergillosis in hematopoietic stem transplantation recipients.
New study helps explain why pancreatic cancer is so lethal, with less than one-third of patients surviving even early stage disease.
Former, as well as current, smokers saw higher risk for disease recurrence and radiation therapy-related urinary side effects.
Examining more distant relations for prostate cancer can provide important patient history.
Scientists have created a statistical model that measures the proportion of cancer incidence, across varied tissue types, caused primarily by random mutations during cell division.
