Well: After Physical Therapy, Why Not Cancer Therapy?
My family and I would have given anything for the house calls of a creature we never imagined: an oncological therapist. And it might be less expensive than recurrent emergency room visits.
Conclusion: Intestinal F. nucleatum is a valuable marker for CRC diagnosis. PMID: 29786050 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusion: With preoperative chemoradiotherapy, individualized APE may be a relatively safe and feasible approach for low rectal cancer with acceptable oncological outcomes. PMID: 29786037 [PubMed - in process]
While has hasn ’t been in the news quite as often as his namesake, Dr. Donald “Skip” Trump is celebrating a record-setting fundraising event to benefit a cancer center in Virginia.
Cancer quacks frequently characterize conventional treatments for cancer as "cutting, poisoning, and burning." Yet, in Australia a woman with ovarian cancer chose black salve, in essence, "cutting, poisoning, and burning" (but mostly burning and without the cutting) to treat her disease. She died a horrible death. How can black salve still be a thing. The post Helen Lawson and black salve: Cutting, burning, and poisoning “naturally” appeared first on RESPECTFUL INSOLENCE.
The objective of The North American Menopause Society (NAMS) and The International Society for the Study of Women's Sexual Health (ISSWSH) Expert Consensus Panel was to create a point of care algorithm for treating genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM) in women with or at high risk for breast cancer. The consensus recommendations will assist healthcare providers in managing GSM with a goal of improving the care and quality of life for these women. The Expert Consensus Panel is comprised of a diverse group of 16 multidisciplinary experts well respected in their fields. The panelists individually conducted an evidence-ba...
Objective: Vulvovaginal atrophy (VVA) is a condition frequently observed in menopause. Its symptoms can significantly affect the quality of life of patients. Since VVA is related to estrogen deficiency, chemotherapy and hormone therapy for breast cancer (BC) might cause VVA by inducing menopause. Given the lack of effective treatment for VVA in BC survivors, we retrospectively evaluated the efficacy and tolerability of fractional microablative CO2 laser therapy in these patients. Methods: We treated 82 BC survivors with three cycles of CO2 laser after failure of topical nonestrogenic therapy. The severity of symptoms ...
CONCLUSIONS: Some limited evidence supports the hypothesis that colorectal surgery might stimulate the growth and development of synchronous colorectal liver metastases. PMID: 29783886 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
PROSTATE cancer symptoms include passing more urine than normal, having a sudden urge to use the toilet, or finding blood in your urine or semen, according to charity Prostate Cancer UK. But, what is the PSA test, and should you get tested?
Freenome is looking to build a diagnostic test that can learn from its mistakes. The South San Francisco, CA- based company is using artificial intelligence to improve colorectal cancer screening. To do this, Freenome has initiated AI-EMERGE, a clinical study for the AI-Genomics blood test, which will collect samples from up to 3,000 patients in the U.S. and Canada. Freenome CEO, Gabe Otte said the infusion of AI is a natural step in the evolution of diagnostics that should have been taken years ago. “If you look at the traditional molecular diagnostic tests that are out there – the PSA tests for example &ndash...
