Ibuprofen and Bladder Cancer
Over-the-counter pain relievers including aspirin and ibuprofen may have an important role to play in lowering the risks of cancer. Researchers have found an association between long-term (10+ years) use of ibuprofen and lower bladder cancer risks.

Inflammation is at the heart of so many conditions, including cancer. This is a well-established fact. A recent study shows that arthritis and breast cancer spread (metastasis) may also be linked.

Preventing Lung Cancer may be Possible
Even though someone has quit smoking, he or she still has an elevated risk of developing lung cancer. New research has discovered a common drug may decrease some of those risks.
Arthritis Drug may be Effective in Treating Cancer
Liver cancer isn't one of the more treatable cancers. That could be changing, though. Scientists have discovered that the common anti-inflammatory drug - Celebrex (celecoxib) - makes liver cancer cells commit suicide. This is just the latest finding showing that Celebrex may be useful in treating a number of different cancers.
