Deborah Norville "so grateful" after cancer surgery
"Inside Edition's" Deborah Norville says she is grateful to the concerned fan who spotted a lump on her neck about 20 years ago. Two weeks ago, her surgeon removed most of her thyroid after nodules in her neck tested positive for cancer. On Monday, Norville was back on the air again. She joins "CBS This Morning" to discuss her experience and what people should do spot similar risks. (Source: Health News: CBSNews.com)

Breakthrough alpha-ray treatment of cancer without external radiation
(Osaka University) Radioactive iodine has been used for treatment of thyroid cancer. However, some thyroid tumors become resistant to iodine treatment. An Osaka University research team used a large accelerator to produce sodium astatide for injection, which emits highly therapeutic alpha rays that can be used in cancer treatment. This systemic alpha-ray exposure may enable breakthrough outpatient treatment of cancerous lesions throughout the body without involving external radiation therapy. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)

Cancer Deaths Have Fallen Drastically Over the Last 25 Years. But These Types Are On the Rise
Cancer is the second-leading cause of death among Americans, behind only heart disease. But there’s good news: the cancer death rate has drastically declined over the past 25 years, according to a new report from the American Cancer Society (ACS). Overall, the cancer death rate dropped by 27% between 1991 and 2016, according to the report’s data, which came from the National Center for Health Statistics. Steadily declining cancer mortality rates saved about 2.6 million lives between 1991 and 2016. Significant reductions in lung cancer mortality explain a large part of the overall trend. Smoking rates have falle...
