    Abstract : Proton beam therapy (PBT), using scanned beams, is an emerging modality used for the treatment of cancer. The clinical advantages of PBT, compared to commonly used photon beam therapy, have been demonstrated in different studies. READ MORE

  2. 2. Small breast cancers : Diagnosis, prognostic factors and clinical outcome in a screening population

    Author : Lars-Gunnar Arnesson; Karl von Smitten; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Breast neoplasm; diagnostic; treatment; pathology; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Breast cancer ≤ 10 mm together with ductal in situ cancer of the breast (DCIS) today constitute more than 40% of screening detected breast malignancies.

    Abstract : Skin cancer, including malignant melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC), is a growing problem due to the increasing incidence in Sweden and in other Caucasian populations. NMSCs are diagnosed as often as all other cancers combined and include basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), precursors to SCC such as Bowen’s disease (BD) and actinic keratosis (AK), as well as several rare skin cancers including Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC).
