When we launched this blog last year, we were not aware of other similar blogs. To celebrate our one-year anniversary we have compiled a list of 35 blogs on or related to cancer screening or prevention.

Very few of the blogs listed below are solely focused on cancer screening and prevention. Nevertheless, you may find yourself interested in the views on cancer prevention from leading academics, research funders and charities promoting better health.

Have we missed a relevant blog? Leave us a comment to let us know.
