Monday Mommy Health Series: Skin Cancer - Melanoma, Monday, June 4, 2012:"The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends self-exams monthly. If you do these regularly, you are more likely to spot any abnormalities or changes in moles. After you do it a few times, it should take no more than 10 minutes a small investment in what could be a life-saving routine. It's also great for your children to see you do this, so they incorporate it into their lives as they get older. You may find it helpful to have a doctor do a full-body exam first, to assure you that any existing spots, freckles, or moles are normal or treat any that may not be."


Chemo Brain | 12 Ways to Help Someone with Chemo Brain |"The chemicals used in chemotherapy are powerful -- strong enough to kill cancer cells. That's a good thing, but they also seem to have a little-understood effect on the brain, causing cognitive problems such as memory lapses and loss of concentration. While it's tempting to think that these problems are all in the patient's mind, they're all too real, experts say. In fact, a study at the University of Rochester Medical Center found that more than 80 percent of people who receive chemotherapy for cancer report annoying memory and concentration problems that often linger for months, even after treatment is finished."

The Skin Cancer Foundation - American Academy of Pediatrics Calls for Ban on Youth Tanning:"Tanning The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), a group of 60,000 pediatricians, today called for all US tanning salons to bar minors. With this new policy statement, the AAP joins health groups such as the American Medical Association, the World Health Organization (WHO), the Academy of Dermatology, and The Skin Cancer Foundation in demanding a ban on indoor tanning for young people.
We strongly commend the AAP for this definitive statement pushing for prohibition of indoor tanning for young people," said Perry Robins, MD, President of The Skin Cancer Foundation. "The damage caused by the UV radiation from tanning beds and the sun is cumulative and often irreversible, and the earlier people start to tan, the higher their risk of developing skin cancer in their lifetimes."

PT Perspective: Heart Disease in Women - Overshadowed and Understated, By: Son Trinh, DPT,"It's good to be informed. As PTs, I'd add that it's our responsibility to inform ourselves then to pass on the information to patients. I've come across many women, patients, and co-workers who recognize the dangers of breast cancer and the necessity of research to cure it. Clearly, breast cancer is serious business and the stats are grim. The lifetime prevalence: 1 in 8; number of deaths per year: 40,000. But consider this. Lung cancer claims 70,000 women a year which is more than breast, ovarian and uterine cancers combined. Of those diagnosed with lung cancer, only 1 in 8 survives. The public consciousness seems misinformed on this."
