Association of COVID-19 Pandemic Measures and Cancer Screening

2022 19 Jul

According to GLOBOCAN estimates, 19.3 million new cancer cases and 10 million cancer deaths occurred in 2020 due to breast, colorectal, and cervical cancer, the first, third, and seventh-most prevalent cancers worldwide.  Cancer screening programmes help detect cancer at early stages and can lead to decreased mortality. In the past few years, cancer... Read more

Cost-effective Lung Cancer Screening Programmes

2017 04 Jul

For lung cancer screening programmes to be cost-effective, these should target high-risk people and identify non-cancer conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), according to new research published in the Journal of Thoracic Oncology. A multidisciplinary team from Canada conducted the study, which found that the overall cost-effectiveness... Read more

Breast and Thyroid Cancer Screening for At-risk Survivors

2017 23 May

Survival of childhood, adolescent and young adult (CAYA) cancers has increased with progress in the management of the treatments and has reached more than 80% at 5 years. Nevertheless, these survivors are at great risk of second cancers and non-malignant co-morbidities in later life. In France, a new study (DeNaCaPST trial) aims to organise a national... Read more

Using Sugar To Detect Cancer: A Game Changer For Screening

2016 24 May

Early detection of cancer, usually through advanced medical imaging, is crucial as it increases the chances of survival and the potential for full recovery and the EU-funded GLINT project will develop a ground-breaking new technology which allows for less invasive, more accurate and earlier diagnosis. GlucoCEST Imaging of Neoplastic Tumours... Read more

Computed Tomography with Computer-Aided Detection for Lung Cancer Screening

2016 05 Jan

Several medical societies recommend annual lung cancer screening with low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) for certain individuals at high risk. However, the value of adding computer-aided detection to improve LDCT screening accuracy remains unclear. Executive Summary: ECRI Perspectives  In June 2011, the U.S. National Cancer Institute’s (NCI’s)... Read more

MRI + Prostate-Specific Antigen Screening Improves Cancer Detection

2015 25 Mar

Early results from the Göteborg randomised screening trial show that the use of MRI alongside conventional prostate cancer screening may offer improved cancer detection and may help in avoiding unnecessary biopsies. The Göteborg Trial is the Swedish arm of the European Randomised Study of Screening for Prostate Cancer, the largest randomised prostate... Read more
