Cancer remains the most feared disease and is the major cause of death worldwide. It accounted for nearly 10 million of deaths in 2020, representing around one in six deaths according to the World Health Organization (WHO). The highest incidents of cancer are reported in breast, lung, colon and rectum, prostate, skin, and stomach. Most cancers can be cured or controlled if detected at an early stage before metastasis and are treated precisely and appropriately. Hence, early detection and diagnosis are highly effective in reducing the burden of cancer mortality. Biosensors and sensing devises can play a key role in the early detection and diagnosis of cancer. These devices can be phenomenally successful and desirable screening tools, especially as they can be either non-invasive or minimally invasive technologies. The discovery of tumor markers in body fluids has had an enormous impact on advancing cancer screening, especially outside the healthcare settings. To this end, this Special Issue will explore the use of biosensor devices in the early detection and diagnosis of different types of cancer. We invite submissions of research that help to advance the field of cancer detection using biosensors and aid in the uptake of this technology for cancer diagnosis.
With best regards,

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Biosensors is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
