  • The 7 questions we must answer to beat cancer - Cancer Research UK - Science blog
    like obesity and varying levels of physical activity to name just two growing health issues And with these complex problems it s likely that there will be many different signatures that need untangling before we can find out how to tackle them So our third Grand Challenge is to discover how unusual patterns of mutation are induced by different cancer causing events If you re a researcher and want to build a team to take on this challenge visit our website to find out how you can apply 4 Can we spot the potentially lethal cancers that need treating and non lethal ones that don t Credit Flickr CC BY 2 0 This question brings together two challenges that are poles apart Some changes in the body we call cancer don t actually need any treatment while there are other aggressive tumours that we aren t spotting early enough Prostate and breast cancers can be diagnosed early but in some cases the tumours detected through tests or screening won t go on to cause any harm to the patient But we can t always tell which these are So some patients are having unnecessary treatment which also means unnecessary side effects On the flipside we don t have reliable ways of detecting cancers such as lung brain pancreatic or ovarian cancers which can be particularly aggressive and need urgent treatment So what if we could tell the difference between potentially lethal and non lethal cancers and turn this into more accurate ways of diagnosing them To do this researchers will need a precise understanding of the biological differences between lethal and non lethal tumours Once they have this knowledge we ll need to know if it can be turned into new ways of spotting these cancers For example we need to find out if there are tell tale molecules or faulty bits of DNA released into the bloodstream or urine that could be detected with new technology So our fourth Grand Challenge is to distinguish between lethal cancers that need treating and non lethal cancers that don t If you re a researcher and want to build a team to take on this challenge visit our website to find out how you can apply 5 Can we make a Google Street View for cancer Blood vessel inside a melanoma We need to do more than just study cancer cells There is a whole ecosystem of tissues cells proteins and molecules out there that support every tumour This ecosystem is called the tumour microenvironment and it s a bit like a city It s built from different types of cells with structural molecules and proteins for support There are blood vessels that act like roads into the tumour supplying nourishment to keep the cells growing And these tumour roads even serve as escape routes for cancer cells that spread to other parts of the body But while we know this world exists we don t really understand how all the components
