Cancer in the News: Jan/Feb 2024 The Greater Manchester Cancer Podcast

    • Health & Fitness

In the first of a new monthly series looking at cancer in the news, host Steve Bland and Professor Matt Evison, the Associate Medical Director at GM Cancer, cast their eyes over the stories making the headlines in the first two months of 2024.
And it's been a busy one, with the news of the King's diagnosis, Olympian Chris Foy reluctantly revealing he had been receiving treatment, the death of tv chef Dave Myers, and groundbreaking research projects including a new national BRCA gene testing programme and a new bowel cancer screening programme for people with Lynch Syndrome.
Steve and Matt discuss the impact of celebrities going public with a diagnosis as well as the challenges in keeping the awareness message going.
