Cancer Screening Tests All Women Should Know About

By Stacy Simon Along with giving Mother's Day gifts and sending greetings this year, encourage the moms in your life to get up to date on cancer screening tests. Screening tests look for cancer before a person has any signs or symptoms. Regular screenings can catch some cancers early, when they’re small, have not spread, and are easier to treat. With cervical and colon cancers, these tests can even prevent cancer from developing in the first place. Sweeten the deal by offering to help your mom schedule her screening, drive her to and from appointments, and keep her company in the waiting room. These are the American Cancer Society’s screening recommendations:Breast cancer Women should be able to start the screening as early as age 40, if they want to. It’s a good idea to start talking to your health care provider at age 40 about when you should begin screening.Women with an average risk of breast cancer – most women – should begin yearly mammograms at age 45.At age 55, women should have mammograms every other year – though women who want to keep having yearly mammograms should be able to do so.Regular mammograms should continue for as long as a woman is in good health.Breast exams, either from a medical provider or self-exams, are no longer included in the recommendations because research does not show they provide a clear benefit.Women at high risk – because of family history, a breast condition, or another reason – need to b...

We report two cases in which fecal microbiota transplantation used for the treatment of recurrent Clostridium difficile infection were effective in eradicating colonization by carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae. The presented cases illustrate the potential benefit of fecal microbiota transplantation in resolution of asymptomatic carrier states of multiresistant microorganisms, suggesting the need for further investigations with a view to their applicability in this area.

KeithAbstractUnilateral condylar hyperplasia is a rare disease that causes facial asymmetry as a result of excessive vertical or horizontal growth, or both, of the mandibular condyle. Investigation should address the patient’s concerns, and establish whether the disease is active with the use of single positron emission tomography (PET). Proportional reduction of the condyle arrests active disease and restores mandibular height, and any residual asymmetr...

Abstract The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of a novel ultrasonic tip as an auxiliary method for removing filling material from flattened/oval-shaped canals. The null hypothesis tested was that this method does not influence removing the filling material in flattened/oval-shaped canals. Forty-five mandibular incisors were selected and randomly divided into three experimental groups (n = 15) according to different protocols for removing root canal filling material. Group R: Reciproc R25/.08, Group RC: Reciproc R25/.08 + Clearsonic tip, and Group CR: Clearsonic tip + Reciproc R25/.08. The teeth were scanned ...
