Lung cancer trial results show mortality benefit with low-dose CT: Twenty percent fewer lung cancer deaths seen among those who were screened with low-dose spiral CT than with chest X-ray
The NCI has released initial results from a large-scale test of screening methods to reduce deaths from lung cancer by detecting cancers at relatively early stages. The National Lung Screening Trial, a randomized national trial involving more than 53,000 current and former heavy smokers ages 55 to 74, compared the effects of two screening procedures for lung cancer -- low-dose helical computed tomography (CT) and standard chest X-ray -- on lung cancer mortality and found 20 percent fewer lung cancer deaths among trial participants screened with low-dose helical CT.

Survey shows that the Public Trust Physicians More than the Internet for Cancer Health Information
Data from the NCI's Health Information Trends Survey (HINTS) shows that despite a decade's worth of exposure to health information on the Internet, the public's trust in physicians as their preferred source of health information has remained high and, if anything, increased from 2002 to 2008. Conversely, trust in health information from the Internet or from other sources decreased during the same period.

Panel urges further research to determine which DCIS patients may be candidates for less-invasive therapy
Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), the most common non-invasive lesion of the breast, presents unique challenges for patients and providers largely because the natural course of the untreated disease is not well understood. Because most women diagnosed with DCIS are treated, it is difficult to determine the comparative benefits of different treatment strategies versus active surveillance, meaning systematic follow-up. An NIH panel is urging more research to determine which DCIS patients may be candidates for less-invasive therapy.
August: Mapping breast cancer genes

As is true with all forms of cancer, the earlier breast cancer is discovered, the better the chances for a good outcome. MRI can be used to detect cancers in the opposite breast of women newly diagnosed with breast cancer, according to a study funded by the National Cancer Institute. MRI scans of women who were diagnosed with cancer in one breast detected over 90 percent of cancers in the other breast that were missed by mammography and clinical breast exam at initial diagnosis.
