A decrease in cervical lesions among young women in the United States has been observed, but the cause for this drop is not proven.
The presence of certain human papillomavirus (HPV)-16 antibodies in the blood is associated with improved survival rates for patients with HPV-related oropharyngeal carcinoma.
Can molecules derived from avocados be used as a tool to combat leukemia?
Clinical trial data suggests that postmenopausal women of above-average weight have an increased risk of breast cancer.
The discovery of three genetic variants associated with mucinous ovarian carcinomas (MOCs) offers the first evidence of genetic susceptibility in this type of ovarian cancer.
Researchers estimate that 48.5% of the nearly 346,000 deaths from 12 cancers among adults 35 years and older in 2011 were attributable to cigarette smoking, according to a newly published study.
Researchers have discovered that a rabbit virus can deliver a one-two punch, killing some kinds of cancer cells while eliminating a common and dangerous complication of bone marrow transplants.
The percentage of patients with early stage breast cancer undergoing breast-conserving therapy (BCT) increased from 54.3% in 1998 to 60.1% in 2011, according to a recent report. Notably, nonclinical factors including socioeconomic demographics, insurance, and the distance patients must travel to treatment facilities persist as key barriers to the treatment.
Breast cancer patients with high levels of the protein activin-like receptor kinase (ALK1) in the blood vessels of their tumors were more likely to develop metastatic disease, according to a new study.
