In this month’s podcast, we’ve got a roundup of the news from the NCRI Cancer Conference in Liverpool, held at the beginning of November.
We find out how HPV testing and vaccination could mean women only have to be screened twice in their life for cervical cancer in the future, while the latest clinical trial results show that radiotherapy combined with hormone therapy boosts survival from advanced prostate cancer.
Also, a new study shows that only half as many lung cancer patients in England are getting potentially lifesaving surgery compared to the best countries in the world. And finally, we hear from our supporters who met their local MPs at Cancer Research UK’s first Westminster lobby event.
