Mayo researchers find cancer biopsies do not promote cancer spread
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 01/12/2015) - A study of more than 2,000 patients by researchers at Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Fla., has dispelled the myth that cancer biopsies cause cancer to spread.

U of Pittsburgh researchers find that coupling head and neck cancer screening and lung cancer scans could improve survival
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 01/12/2015) - Adding head and neck cancer screenings to newly recommended lung cancer screenings would likely improve early detection and survival.

Vanderbilt researchers find that an enzyme affects tumor metastasis
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 01/09/2015) - Researchers have established a role for MMP2 in the development of lung metastases from primary breast cancer. Using mice without the Mmp2 gene, the team found that metastatic tumors in the lung proliferate less in the absence of fibroblast MMP2.
