People who develop abnormal numbers of skin cancers called basal cell carcinomas may be at increased risk of other, unrelated internal cancers.
Stanford's Manali Patel found higher satisfaction and lower costs for advanced cancer patients who spoke with a nonclinical worker about care preferences.
A small magnetic wire that attracts nanoparticles engineered to stick to tumor cells may stand to detect cancer earlier.
The American Cancer Society joins forces with National Cancer Institute-designated cancer centers to promote the HPV vaccine and eliminate cervical cancer.
Antiretroviral therapy, a breakthrough treatment for HIV infection, suppresses the levels of circulating HIV viral particles in the blood. When it works, cancer rates drop, according to a new study. Still, even when the therapy is successful, HIV-positive individuals retain elevated rates of cancer.
Denise Wong had survived breast cancer treatment at 27. Ten years later, she and her husband wanted to have a child. Her treatment had made that unlikely, but her fertility team at Stanford found a way.
A "molecular car wash" may help dermatologists accurately and more quickly identify and remove tiny skin cancers caused by sun damage. The technique also pinpoints subtle molecular differences associated with the cancers that may one day guide treatment.
Researchers are using AI listening technologies to improve mental-health, diagnose autism and discover adverse drug reactions.
New Stanford Medicine research found that a compound called d-limonene has the potential to help head and neck cancer patients who suffer from dry mouth.
When Stanford's James Spudich was diagnosed with lung cancer, one of his first thoughts was of his colleague, lung development expert Mark Krasnow. Within hours a group of Stanford scientists had launched an astoundingly comprehensive study of healthy and diseased human lung tissue from one of their own.
Scientists at Stanford have created a new PET scan-compatible tracing agent that tracks immune cells poised to attack cancer, offering a new way to predict the success of certain therapies.
Cancer survivor Ali Zidel Meyers reflects on joining a cancer writing group and how it helped her and others through their experience.
Stanford researchers solve a long-standing mystery as to how mutations in a neighboring stretch of DNA can increase the expression of a cancer-associated gene called Myc. The finding highlights a potential new class of targets to block cancer cell growth.
Author Rebecca Skloot and Henrietta Lacks family members discuss the importance of telling the human stories behind medical science
Stanford Medicine doctors have partnered with colleagues in Nigeria to improve cancer care with the goal of reducing inequities.
Scientists have made an important step forward in treating a deadly childhood brain tumor, using T cells engineered to target a surface sugar found on the cancer cells.
