Addressing Suicide Among Cancer Patients
The recent suicides of highly regarded fashion designer Kate Spade and television celebrity chef and author Anthony Bourdain remind us this mental health crisis can touch anyone. Cancer patients are no exception. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), suicide rates between 1999 and 2016 have risen more than 30 percent in half of the country and by nearly 60 percent in some states. This trend is particularly worrisome for cancer patients because this group has a higher suicide risk than the general public. For mesothelioma patients and the people who care for them, one part of this picture deser...

Doctors Think a Woman ’s Tattoo May Have Been Causing Her Severe Leg Pain
Doctors in Scotland believe a woman’s large tattoo on her leg may have been the cause of her unexplained inflammation and severe leg pain. The authors of a report on the woman’s case, published in BMJ Case Reports, say it is a reminder to physicians that they should be mindful of their patients’ tattoos if they encounter unusual and unexplained symptoms. The 31-year-old woman was suffering a condition called inflammatory myopathy, which affected her left leg and caused pain severe enough to disrupt her sleep. The woman had a double lung transplant in 2009, and was taking drugs to suppress her immune syst...

Here ’s How Much Exercise You Need to Keep Your Brain Healthy
There’s no question that exercise is good for the body, and there is growing evidence that staying physically active can help slow the normal declines in brain function that come with age. Health groups recommend that adults try to get at least 150 minutes of moderate-to-intense activity a week to keep their hearts healthy — but is that the same amount that’s needed to keep the brain sharp? In a new study published in the journal Neurology, researchers led by Joyce Gomes-Osman, an assistant professor in physical therapy and neurology at University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, set out to find an exe...

Let’s get candid about male mental health. Men don’t get a lot of compassion — not as a gender, not toward one another, and not toward ourselves. We are the more impulsive, less refined gender that has not progressed much since our cave-dwelling days. We’ve learned to use a salad fork since then, however, and we pretend to enjoy chivalry. Sadly — and perhaps due to our ruffian status — men are often perceived as an expendable lot, regularly sent to do life’s dirty work like unclogging municipal sewers, diffusing IEDs, repossessing tractors, or mining for coal and ore miles below E...
