Doctors Warned to Keep Track of Tumorous Lymph Nodes
Scientists have come out with study results that encourage health care providers to take into account the number of lymph nodes// marked by the presence of tumor cells in colon cancer patients, taken during follow up. This, researchers opine, may be a definite clue to chances of reccurence , as ...

"T-cells have the capacity to hunt down and eliminate infected host cells, or when properly directed, tumorous
host cells anywhere in the body," said Junghans. "We propose a therapy with intent to cure metastatic, widely disseminated tumors in patients who othe...

Molecular marker identifies normal stem cells as intestinal tumor source
...t the stem cells stopped making normal intestine and made tumors instead. "We saw a dramatic change in these laboratory models," Gilbertson said. "The tumorous

...ed, cause of skin damage. Sunburn is a common, and painful,
signal of overexposure to UV rays. In fact, over 90 percent of all skin
cancers, including tumorous

melanomas, are associated with UV radiation. Sunscreen is a powerful,
year-round safeguard against sun damag...
Synthetic molecules hold promise for new family of anti-cancer drugs
...ssues. The researchers see this as a precursor to the development of a new generation of anti-cancer drugs that induce, selectively, apoptosis only to tumorous
cells. These drugs are expected to be highly effective while inducing fewer side effects than current anti-cancer drugs.

The principle behind this is quite simple, though the technology is not. tumorous
growths or cancer cells in the lung release some volatile organic chemicals. These are passed into the air that leaves the diseased lungs. These compo...
A New Ultrasound Technique to Detect Breast Cancer
...Generally tumors are found to be harder and less elastic than benign lumps and thus the test can tell a dangerous growth from a harmless one.

“The finding, if con...
How an enzyme tells stem cells which way to divide
