In a new study, researchers used a patient's own cancer history rather than family history to identify genetic mutations that might influence cancer treatment and risk for family members.
Researchers at the University of Michigan will lead one of five nationally funded centers dedicated to accelerating research into understanding the molecular basis of cancer and sharing resources with the scientific community.
As thyroid cancer rates rise, more people are having surgery to remove all or part of their thyroid. A new study suggests complications from these procedures are more common than previously believed.
About 39,300 cancer professionals from around the world met June 2-6 in Chicago for the American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting.
Researchers at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center found an innovative approach to improve control of locally advanced lung cancer tumors while preserving more normal tissue. It involves a midtreatment PET-CT scan using the radioactive tracer fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) and then individualizing escalated radiation to the target region the tracer identifies.
An investigation from the University of Michigan could eventually lead to new therapies that take aim at the most aggressive type of breast cancer -- triple-negative.
