Cancer overhaul needed, says NICE

  • Comment

The care of patients whose cancer has spread to other parts of their body from an unknown location needs to be overhauled, NICE has said.

Guidance recommends that all hospitals with a cancer centre or unit should create cancer of unknown primary (CUP) teams to manage these patients’ care.

Networks of these teams should also be set up to review treatment and consider complex cases.
