Implant will show when cancer is present.


An implant which detects cancer in the body and causes a small artificial mole to appear on the skin as an early warning sign has been developed by scientists.

The tiny patch lies under the skin and is made of a network of cells which constantly monitor calcium levels in the body.

Swiss scientists from the university ETH Zurich say the device can recognise the four most common types of cancer – prostate, lung, colon and breast cancer – at a very early stage of tumour development.

Early detection increases the chance of survival significantly. Around 190,000 people are diagnosed with prostate, lung, colon and breast cancer each year in Britain and 72,000 will die from the disease. But early detection could prevent tens of thousands of deaths.
