Prostate cancer deaths overtake those from breast cancer - BBC News
The number of men dying from prostate cancer has overtaken female deaths from breast cancer for the first time in the UK, figures show. An ageing population means more men are developing and dying from the disease. Prostate Cancer UK says advances in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer are paying off, and increased funding could benefit prostate cancer. The biggest cancer killers in the UK remain lung and bowel cancer, with prostate now in third place. The latest figures from 2015 show there were 11,819 deaths from prostate cancer compared with 11,442 from breast cancer. //&!

Breast cancer gene mutation 'doesn't affect survival' - BBC News
About a third of those with the BRCA mutation had a double mastectomy to remove both breasts. This surgery did not appear to improve their chances of survival at the 10-year mark. [...] Fiona MacNeill, of the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, who was not involved in the research, said: "This study can reassure young women with breast cancer, particularly those with triple negative cancer or who are BRCA carriers, that breast conservation with radiotherapy is a safe option in the first decade after diagnosis and double mastectomy is not essential or mandatory at initial treatment.

She added: "In view of this, younger women with breast cancer can take time to discuss whether radical breast surgery is the right choice for them as part of a longer-term risk reducing strategy." &! &!

'Monumental U-turn' on cancer drug - BBC News
Kadcyla, the undiscounted cost of which had been £90,000 per patient, adds an average of six months of life to women with a form of terminal breast cancer.
Campaigners have praised the "monumental" U-turn, which will benefit about 1,200 women a year.
"Tough negotiation and flexibility between the NHS and Roche means both patients and taxpayers are getting a good deal," said NHS England chief executive Simon Stevens. [...] The full price drug worked out at £166,000 for every "quality adjusted life year" of good health.

Half of GPs unaware of drug's use in cancer prevention – study | Society | The Guardian
A “worrying” number of family doctors are not offering at-risk patients a preventive breast cancer drug, a charity has said.

A study found that only half of GPs were aware the drug tamoxifen could be used to reduce the risk of breast cancer.

In 2013 the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (Nice) recommended that women deemed to be at moderate or high risk of breast cancer should be offered chemoprevention drugs including tamoxifen.

Anger after key plan to tackle childhood obesity delayed again
[ obesity/diet-related diseases (chronic) to bankrupt NHS ] Theresa May will delay publishing the Government’s long awaited Childhood Obesity Strategy until the autumn, despite pleas from the head of the NHS to act to protect the most vulnerable children in society. On Tuesday NHS England Chief Executive Simon Stevens called for the plan to be unveiled, saying the obesity crisis costs the taxpayer more than the police and fire services combined.

Obesity 'likely culprit' behind womb cancer rise
Rising levels of obesity may be fuelling an increase in the number of women diagnosed with womb cancer, the charity Cancer Research UK warns.
Its figures show around 19 in every 100,000 women in the UK were diagnosed with the disease in the 1990s - climbing to 29 in 100,000 in 2013.
Researchers acknowledge the science behind how extra weight is linked to cancer is not clear - but say hormones produced by extra fat may play a part.
They say more studies are needed.

But regional data shows wide differences across the country - with more smokers in poorer areas. Prof Jonathan Grigg of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health said the findings of this study were a worrying sign for the state of child health.
He added: "We need to fully support parents in the first few months with their baby to highlight to them the importance of keeping their home smoke-free.
"Health visitor and smoking-cessation services are vital to this process, but with the £200m reduction in funding for public health, these services are at risk."

"brave" ...normalisation of cancer. 'was death sentence, now life extension' // BBC journalist Victoria Derbyshire has finished the chemotherapy stage of her breast cancer treatment. In it, she describes her emotional reaction to the end of her final cycle.

Derbyshire has been filming diaries since she was diagnosed with breast cancer at the end of July last year, to try to help demystify the treatment.

Here, two women who were also diagnosed with the condition in 2015 explain how the diaries have helped them, and they were joined by Baroness Delyth Morgan from the charity, Breast Cancer Now.

Tumours shrunk 'dramatically' in 11 days - BBC News
The drugs were lapatinib and trastuzumab, which is more widely known as Herceptin. They both target HER2 - a protein that fuels the growth of some women's breast cancers. Herceptin works on the surface of cancerous cells while lapatinib is able to penetrate inside the cell to disable HER2. The study, which also took place at NHS hospitals in Manchester, gave the treatment to women with tumours measuring between 1 and 3cm. In less than two weeks of treatment, the cancer disappeared entirely in 11% of cases, and in a further 17% they were smaller than 5mm. //&! angiogenesis STUPID! - diet - &! &! --- It's too much of a ask by meat eating cancer doctors to ask cancer patients to adhere to a Whole-Food Plant-Based diet w some physical activity.

Breast cancer drug Kadcyla 'too expensive' for NHS - BBC News
A life-extending breast cancer drug will not be routinely offered on the NHS in England and Wales because it is still too expensive [...] £90,000 at full cost - is too high to widen access, say the draft NICE guidelines. NICE criticised manufacturer Roche for not making it more affordable. Roche says discussions are continuing, meaning a resolution is still possible. Inoperable cancer Kadcyla can add about six months of life to women with incurable disease. It is used to treat people with HER2-positive breast cancer that has spread to other parts of the body and cannot be surgically removed. //&! &! - found in macrophages, urine, saliva, milk, and plasma. &! - part of the immune system. //&! - written in very sensitive matter along the line that you can beat 'cancer.'

Part II: Is the Government fulfilling its role in the fight against cancer?
The scale of the challenge is apparent. I think we should be as bold and ambitious as possible: scientists, clinicians, patients, the general public and politicians all working together for a single goal: to eliminate cancer within a generation, and Britain at the forefront of this. [...] Patient experience has to be prioritised and this is difficult when NHS cancer services are under unprecedented pressure and the Government far too often provides contradictory messages. The Department of Health must provide the NHS with the resources and the long-term, holistic stability to allow Trusts to invest in state-of-the-art equipment. The NHS needs to emphasise prevention and early detection too, but the risk is that under greater financial and workforce pressure, cancer services will be forced to firefight.

Breast cancer patients feel let down by Cameron, says woman cited in PMQs | Society | The Guardian
Emma Cairns, who was told more than four years ago that her cancer was incurable, said women living with the disease felt let down by David Cameron, who she said had failed to keep a promise to collect vital data on secondary breast cancer cases, where somebody who has had the disease before is rediagnosed. Cairns said she had no idea the Labour leader would use her story to challenge the prime minister on a lack of data collection, which campaigners argue is leaving women without the palliative care and access to expertise and drugs they need. “Sometimes it feels like we are forgotten about. We spent a lot of time talking about early diagnosis, which is great, but for women living with incurable cancer it is devastating disease,” she told the Guardian.

A research team from the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in Cambridge found that cancers that return were more likely to contain certain genes or combinations of genes. Targeting these genes with early treatments could be key, they said. The study is being presented at the European Cancer Congress in Vienna. In around one in five people with breast cancer, the disease will return - either to the same place as the original tumour or another part of the body.

BBC News - Breastfeeding problems linked to injection after birth
The drug ergotmetrine is offered to mothers to speed up the delivery of the placenta. But a Swansea University study of 288 women found those given the jab were more likely to report pain or difficulties when breastfeeding. The mothers were also less likely to continue breastfeeding past two weeks. The report concluded the injection of the drug may interfere with natural hormones which support the breastfeeding process. [...] Co-author Dr Sue Jordan explained the injection might interfere with the body's natural responses to hormones known as oxytocin and prolactin, which regulate the production of milk. She called for further research to explore the options for new mothers to "understand the balance between protecting women from excessive blood loss and giving them the strongest chance of breastfeeding their baby".

Double Mastectomies Don't Yield Expected Results, Study Finds : Shots - Health News : NPR
Doctors have been increasingly concerned that women are choosing bilateral mastectomy in the mistaken belief that it eliminates their future risk of cancer. [...] And since tiny bits of breast tissue can remain in the chest after surgery, a woman who has had a double mastectomy can still get breast cancer again. Gomez hopes that these new numbers will shift the focus to better understanding women's decision-making process and to educating physicians in better communications. Doctors can't presume to dictate which choice will give a woman the best quality of life, Newman says. But doctors do have to counsel patients to have realistic expectations about their treatment choices. "We are trying to understand the factors that might be motivating this trend, since there is no definitive survival advantage that has been demonstrated," Newman adds.

Brustkrebs: Erhöhtes Risiko durch Mutationen auf Gen PALB und BRCA - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Forscher haben in der bisher größten Studie ihrer Art 362 Mitglieder von 154 Familien untersucht, in denen es PALB2-Mutationen gab. Demnach haben Frauen, die das Gen tragen, eine 14-prozentige Wahrscheinlichkeit, bis zum Alter von 50 Jahren an Brustkrebs zu erkranken. Oder anders formuliert: Mehr als jede siebte Fünfzigjährige mit der Genmutation erkrankt an Brustkrebs. Im Alter von 70 liegt die Rate bei 35 Prozent oder knapp jeder dritten Frau, die die Mutation trägt, berichten die Forscher im "New England Journal of Medicine". Auch Männer mit einem veränderten PALB2-Gen haben ein bis zu achtfach erhöhtes Brustkrebsrisiko im Vergleich zur Allgemeinbevölkerung. Ist Brustkrebs zudem in der Familie verbreitet, sind oder waren also mehr als zwei Angehörige bereits erkrankt, steigt das Risiko weiter.

Look for Cancer, and Find It -
The concept of overtreatment is based on the belief that not all breast cancers are deadly. Some never progress, researchers suspect, and some progress so slowly that the patient will probably die of something else, particularly if she is older or has other health problems. But mammography can find all of these tumors, even those too small to feel. And doctors and patients rarely watch and wait — once a tumor is found, it is treated, because nobody knows how to tell the dangerous ones from those that could be safely left alone. “Everyone has an anecdote of a small spot on mammography year after year that was finally biopsied and turned out to be positive — invasive, low grade,” said Dr. Constance Lehman, a radiologist at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center and the director of breast imaging at the University of Washington in Seattle.

BBC News - Angelina's mastectomy... and other medical stories of 2013
And there is no doubt about the impact a poor night's sleep has on the whole body. The activity of hundreds of genes was altered when people's sleep was cut to less than six hours a day for a week. [...] There was a shift in understanding psychiatric disorders when it was shown autism, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder, bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder and schizophrenia all shared several genetic risk factors.

BBC News - Breast cancer trials 'failing to save younger patients' (Survival Rates post 5 year and 8 years)
National Cancer Institute, showed that survival five years after diagnosis was 85%. By the eight-year mark it was 68%. [...] "Although in general breast cancer survival has improved dramatically in recent decades, with women now twice as likely to survive their disease for at least 10 years compared to those diagnosed in the 1970s, the same can't be said for younger breast cancer patients."

BBC Food - Cancer and diet: Why is nutrition overlooked?
Thousands of scientific papers have been published on the link between diet and the treatment and prevention of cancer. But in practice food is still considered a marginal aspect of cancer care. [...] "In the UK we don't have enough of those randomised studies to say that 'if you eat enough cabbage and broccoli and fruit juices and have some turmeric and maybe some wine and chocolate, yes this can be helpful, but it's not going to be enough to cure cancer'." [... >> yes but it delays the impact once cancer has when reached certain size, vegan diet slows cancerous cell proliferation, ... you should die of old age, not of cancer.] [...] Our research confirmed that in most cancer centres in the UK, diet is still seen as almost meaningless in cancer treatment and aftercare. ["Let thy food be your medicine." is a long-term approach ... being Vegan.] [...] [T]here is no financial incentive.

Actress Angelina Jolie Shares Story Of Her Double Mastectomy : The Two-Way : NPR "My doctors estimated that I had an 87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer, although the risk is different in the case of each woman. Only a fraction of breast cancers result from an inherited gene mutation. Those with a defect in BRCA1 have a 65 percent risk of getting it, on average."

BBC News - 'Cosmetic crisis' waiting to happen
Injections to plump up the skin are a "crisis waiting to happen" and should be available only on prescription, a UK review of cosmetic procedures has said. It warned that dermal fillers, covered by only the same level of regulation as toothbrushes, could cause lasting harm. The independent review added cosmetic surgery had been "trivialised". It also attacked "distasteful" companies for putting profit ahead of care. The review has recommended a series of measures to better protect patients. It was commissioned by the Department of Health in England, but the findings will be passed to health ministers throughout the UK. [...] Profits before patients, that's what happens. Surgery is sold like double glazing and it's totally wrong” >>

Don’t just offer women mammography, says leading radiologist | What Doctors Don't Tell You
Mammography is poor at detecting cancers in women with dense breast tissue, it produces too many false-positives (when it detects a cancer that isn’t there), and it exposes women to high doses of radiation, say researchers from the H Lee Moffitt. [ Well, there should be at least a needle biopsy (3, to forgoe a false positive) - before any operation] >> >> >>
