The 52-year-old woman had no idea that a tumor was already growing inside her as she initially complained of her ballooning weight that reached 238lbs. The operation took three hours to successfully remove the tumor.
Osteosarcoma, common, malignant bone cancer in humans, was recently linked to a herd of Centrosauruses from about 75 million years ago. Dinosaurs surviving cancer also revealed an advantage of belonging to a herd.
Detection of cancer and metastasis is now made easier using a breakthrough AI-assisted cancer diagnostic tool developed by Chinese scientists. It provides a faster and more accurate approach in detecting lymph nodes affected by cancer compared to traditional methods such as the MRI.
A group of researchers has determined that an injectable dye, which glows under near-infrared light, could illuminate cancerous tissues in the primary tumor and affected lymph nodes. The scientists believe that the dye, called indocyanine green, could ensure that surgeries involving malignant tumors would have "clean margins."
Leora Martin, a resident of an assisted-living facility in Indiana, just celebrated her 100th birthday last June 13, 2020. All through her life, adversity had always been her companion. She's lived through World War II, survived cancer and pneumonia, and the latest hurdle - she successfully triumphed over is COVID-19.
A study found that more than 50% of cancer deaths resulting from people drinking within the government guidelines. Also, 38% of alcohol-related deaths were people who drank below the moderate guidelines.
Calamity, the dolphin, died at age forty due to cancer just ten months after her partner, Bucky, passed away. The pair were part of the Dolphin Marine Conservation Park in Coffs Harbour, New South Wales.
Scientists claim that tools used in cancer immunotherapies could also be used to develop a vaccine for the coronavirus in a new study. By using the same method in eliciting an immune response against cancer cells, the researchers believe that by using the approach, a resulting vaccine would protect COVID-19.
Scientists from Stanford have engineered a protein that could combat cancer cells and regenerate neurons. The researchers are optimistic that engineered ligands and receptors could pave the way for fighting diseases and maintaining health in the future.
