Cancer patients are winning the battle against the disease like never before, but age and race may play a role in determining survival odds.
Sometimes a biopsy is just a biopsy. This cancer screening procedure didn't spread cancer cells in patients, despite a myth that it might.
Diabetes patients may need to take extra precautions to lower their risk for cancer or catch it early.
Parents may pass on more than eye and hair color to their children. New research suggests children may be more likely to develop pancreatic cancer if a parent had it.
Low-dose aspirin, commonly used to prevent heart attack and stroke, may have another use: protecting against one of the deadliest cancers.
Cigarette smoking and diabetes are associated with a higher risk of pancreatic cancer. Now another risk factor for this cancer has been confirmed.
Pancreatic cancer is one of the most deadly forms of cancer. The disease has been particularly hard to detect early enough for doctors to make much of a difference. But that could change, according to new research.
Studies have shown diabetes to be linked to pancreatic cancer. Those newly diagnosed with diabetes may be at greatest risk, suggesting that these patients may benefit from a cancer screening.
Pancreatic cancer is notoriously difficult to treat. Now doctors may be able to help pancreatic cancer patients better by more precisely targeting their medication therapy.
Spotting cancer early can increase the chances for successful treatment. But some cancers, such as pancreatic cancer, are rarely detected early. New research suggests another issue with the pancreas may signal cancer risk.
