Missing documentation in breast cancer survivors: genitourinary syndrome of menopause
Conclusion: Breast cancer survivors often experience GSM due to lack of estrogen. The worrisome lack of documentation of assessment or treatment for GSM in a large breast cancer survivorship practice reveals missed opportunities to improve quality of life. Dissemination of recent progress in the development of GSM assessment tools, patient handouts, and new treatments to providers who care for breast cancer survivors is needed to improve this process.
Conclusions: Hyperthermia increased the serum neutrophil-recruiting cytokine levels and reduced the magnitude of chemotherapy-induced neutropenia. Thus, HIPEC improved neutrophil and bone marrow recovery compared with conventional IP chemotherapy. PMID: 31818168 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Wang J, Zhang Y, Lu X, Xi C, Yu K, Gao R, Bi K Abstract Background: Idiopathic granulomatous mastitis (IGM) can clinically and radiographically mimic an abscess or breast cancer. Although IGM is benign, it can cause the breast skin to appear "riddled with holes" and can even result in the loss of the breast. The optimal treatment has not been established. Methods: We retrospectively studied the medical records of 200 patients with IGM who were treated for skin rupture from June 2015 to June 2017 in our institute. The patients' treatment modalities (including surgery after steroid therapy and ster...
Authors: Fan X, Chen G, Li Y, Shi Z, He L, Zhou D, Lin H Abstract Objective: Conflicting results existed about the role of prognostic nutritional index (PNI) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients who received curative hepatectomy. The aim of this study is to identify the predictive capacity of PNI for survival after hepatectomy. Methods: Preoperative PNI, neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), tumor feature and clinical information of 187 patients with HCC from Sir Run Run Shaw hospital were evaluated. We also conducted a meta-analysis of seven cohort studies. Results: Our study showed that HCC patients with a low PNI of
[This Day] Martins Ifijeh chronicles the life of a young ambitious Nigerian woman who was diagnosed with breast cancer, but due to ignorance and high cost of treatment, opted for herbal treatment in Jos, as against orthodox treatment, which then worsened her condition. She was however lucky to retrace her steps on time, and she is presently accessing proper healthcare in Abuja
[This Day] Abuja -Over 5,000 persons have benefited from diabetes, hypertension, cervical and breast cancer free screening, which was facilitated by MITEDA Wellness Initiative, a nongovernmental organisation and in collaboration with the Lagos State government.

Authors: Blann A Abstract In 2019 the British Journal of Biomedical Science published 40 articles in the various disciplines that comprise biomedical science. These were one review, 22 original articles and 17 'In Brief' short reports. Of those citing original data, the majority were in cellular pathology (14 papers), clinical chemistry (9 papers), and microbiology (6 papers: 4 in bacteriology and 2 in virology). There were 3 papers in haematology and 2 in andrology, whilst 5 papers crossed traditional discipline boundaries (such as the molecular genetics of IL6, liver function tests, and hepatocellular carcinoma)....
