TOPIC:
Non-specific symptoms of cancer: specifically what can we do in primary care?
 
DESCRIPTION:
Brian works as a clinical researcher at the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences at the University of Oxford and as a General Practitioner (GP) in Oxford City. His academic interests include cancer, global health, and evidence-based diagnosis. In particular, he aims to improve diagnosis for patients with non-specific or vague symptoms of cancer. He evaluates how GPs can safely use tests to diagnose primary and recurrent cancer, including circulating DNA, Carcinoembryonic Antigen (CEA), Faecal Immunochemical Testing (FIT), and Cancer Antigen 125 (CA125).
