It is estimated more than two million men are living with prostate cancer in the United States, with about one in six expected to get the disease at some point in their lives, according to the American Cancer Society. Thankfully, new treatment technologies are making surviving the disease more likely than ever. But there's a catch -- more and more Americans are too large to be treated using traditional equipment. Enter CTVision, which combines top of the line CT and radiation technologies to locate tumors and to deliver radiation therapy directly to them. This results in better and more effective cancer treatment for patients of all shapes and sizes. Produced for Siemens

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved Torisel™ (temsirolimus), a novel therapy for the treatment of patients with the advanced form of renal cell carcinoma, which is the most common type of kidney cancer. In a recent study, doctors found that patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma who received Torisel lived 49 percent longer – an average of 3.6 months – than patients who received a treatment called interferon-alpha. Torisel is the only marketed cancer therapy that inhibits a protein called mTOR (mammalian target of rapamycin). mTOR is a key protein in cells that regulates cell proliferation, cell growth and cell survival. The American Cancer Society estimates that 51,190 new cases of kidney cancer will be diagnosed this year. Nearly twice as many men as women are affected, and the incidence is highest among people ages 50 to 70. More than 40 percent of patients with kidney cancer are diagnosed with advanced disease. Patients diagnosed with kidney cancer with distant metastatic disease have a five-year survival rate of less than 10 percent. Although Torisel is not a cure, it may give patients with advanced kidney cancer valuable extra time. Produced for Wyeth Pharmaceuticals

Public Urged to Attend Free Screenings on Friday, April 20 The Yul Brynner Head and Neck Cancer Foundation YBF urges Americans to get screened for cancer during the 2007 Oral, Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Week OHANCAW, April 16-22. The week is highlighted by a nationwide day of free screenings at more than 150 medical centers on Friday, April 20. For more information and to find a screening site near you log onto www.headandneck****. According to the American Cancer Society, this year more than 40,000 Americans will be diagnosed with cancers of the head and neck which include cancers of the oral cavity, larynx and pharynx and 7,550 will die. When diagnosed very early, oral and other head and neck cancers can be more easily treated without significant complications, and the chances of survival greatly increase, said Terry Day, M.D., President of the Yul Brynner Head and Neck Cancer Foundation YBF, Associate Professor, Department of Otolaryngology Head & Neck Surgery, Medical University of South Carolina, and Director, Division of Head & Neck Oncologic Surgery, Hollings Cancer Center, Medical University of South Carolina. However, many Americans do not recognize the symptoms of these cancers, which makes screening very important, especially for those who are at high risk, such as tobacco and alcohol users. According to Dr. Day, there has recently been an increasing incidence of some of these cancers in young adults who do not smoke and some researchers have revealed an association with human papillomavirus HPV. About OHNC Oral, head and neck cancer OHNC refers to a variety of cancers that develop in the head and neck region, such as the oral cavity mouth; the pharynx throat; paranasal sinuses and nasal cavity; the larynx voice box; thyroid and salivary glands; the skin of the face and neck; and the lymph nodes in the neck. Common warning signs of OHNC are: Red or white patch in the mouth that lasts more than two weeks Change in voice or hoarseness that lasts more than two weeks Sore throat that does not subside Pain or swelling in the mouth or neck that does not subside Lump in the neck Other warning signs that occur during later stages of the disease include: Ear pain Difficulty speaking or swallowing Difficulty breathing The most effective prevention strategy remains the cessation of risky behaviors such as smoking, use of chewing tobacco and excessive alcohol consumption. More than 85 percent of head and neck cancers are related to tobacco use, while others may have a relationship to viral causes such as HPV and Epstein Barr Virus EBV.

A revolutionary new imaging technology is expected to help physicians better classify breast lesions. Elasticity imaging is an ultrasound technique recently cleared by the FDA that allows doctors to measure the stiffness of tissue, relative to surrounding areas. This new technique may significantly reduce the need for biopsies. In fact, the American Cancer Society confirms only 20 percent of biopsies turn up positive for cancer. In a recent elasticity imaging study, doctors studied 166 suspected breast tumors in 99 women scheduled for biopsies. The lesions were measured using both the standard ultrasound technique and elasticity ultrasound. The results showed that elasticity imaging correctly identified all 17 malignant lesions and 105 of 106 benign lesions. Additional studies on elasticity imaging are currently underway. Doctors say thanks to this new technology the number of biopsies being performed may be reduced by 50 to 70%, greatly relieving patients of the stress and trauma of enduring invasive and unnecessary procedures.

According to the American Cancer Association, prostate cancer affects one in six men in the U.S. and is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in men. When caught and treated early, survival rates can be more than 90 percent, making swift treatment key. Existing treatments however, can be limited and affect quality of life due to significant side effects, including loss of muscle mass, depression, decreased mental acuity and impotence. Now a High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) procedure, available in 33 countries outside the US including Europe, is being tested in US Phase III clinical trials. HIFU is a minimally invasive procedure that uses the Sonablate(R) 500 ultrasound device to destroy cancerous tissue with focused sound waves.

Two Cancer Prevention PSA's from the American Cancer Society. Promoting Colon Cancer test for people over 50 years. "It's clear that people 50 and over just don�t see themselves at risk and don't think they need to be screened," said Don McClure, chief executive officer of the Society�s Ohio Division. "If we can increase awareness, we will have a tremendous opportunity to save many lives through early detection." Despite overwhelming evidence that screening can save lives many Americans still are not following recommendations from the ACS and others for early detection. Perhaps the least understood aspect of colon cancer, and the most compelling, is the fact that colon cancer can be stopped before it starts if precancerous polyps are found and removed through screening endoscopy (colonoscopy or flexible sigmoidoscopy), thereby avoiding the disease completely.

*******www.locateadoc****/article/breast-self-exam-and-cancer-facts More Power To You: The Power to Detect Breast Cancer is Literally in Your Hands Breast Self-Examination is effective in determining 70% of breast abnormalities. 40% of diagnosed breast cancers are from women who felt a lump. Breast cancer feels like a hard rock in the breast 78% of the time. We know the truth: Giving yourself a breast exam is the last thing on your mind as you cherish the few minutes of peace and quiet you get in the shower each day! The truth of it is, if you want to keep wearing your favorite bras, you'll need to make sure that what fills them up is healthy. So next time you take a shower, take a minute to get to know yourself a little better. 3 Major Reasons You Should Examine Your Breasts If you drink alcohol, are overweight, or are physically inactive, you are at higher risk for developing breast cancer. Tip: Instead of hitting happy hour, one hour of running can burn upwards of 400 calories If your mom had it, you could too: 20-30% of women who develop breast cancer have a family history of the disease. The older you are, the higher your risk is: 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer over the course of a lifetime, and your risk increases as you get older. While 0.44 percent of women are diagnosed with breast cancer by age 30 (1 in 227), 3.82 percent of women are diagnosed with it by the age of 70 (1 in 26). Tip: Starting at age 40, it's recommended that women get a yearly mammogram since the risk of breast cancer increases as you age. Don't skip out on this important ritual! How To Give Yourself a Breast Exam While there are several approaches to the self exam, our favorite method is in the shower. It'll give you an excuse to put off shaving your legs for an extra few minutes! Put your hand behind your head to make sure the breast tissue is properly spread out Press gently while moving your fingers in a circular fashion, from the outside of the breast to the nipple Repeat on the other side Do it at least once a month (or more if you're feeling really brave that day) If You Find a Lump, Don't Panic 226,870 women were diagnosed with invasive breast cancer last year. While you might feel completely alone, you are anything but. Finding a Doctor 3 Things to do when choosing a doctor: Read Reviews See Board Certifications Check Financing Options OBGYN: confirms diagnosis Radiologist: Assesses the cancer Oncologist: Treats the cancer Reconstructive surgeon: Presents surgical options When you're dealing with the stress of finding a lump, you may feel too overwhelmed to know what to do next. But thanks to websites that help you to find a doctor, read testimonials, and learn about financing options in advance, the process can be painless. Don't put it off! The sooner you find a local doctor, the sooner you can take action. The Good News... The good news is that your days of wearing sexy bras is not necessarily over. There are a lot of reconstructive options that will allow you to keep your curves, but ditch the cancer. A recent study proves that reconstruction will not only help you feel better when you look in the mirror, but improve your psychosocial and sexual well-being. Saline implants have a lifespan of 10-15 years Silicone feels more like a natural breast than saline Fat transfer uses your own body's materials Only 1 in 4 women with insurance women with insurance gets reconstructive surgery immediately after her mastectomy. Don't be afraid to ask about what's next. Not only are some women never shown breast reconstruction surgery results, but previous research shows 7 out of 10 women diagnosed with breast cancer are never even told about their breast reconstruction options. Less than a quarter (23%) of women know the wide range of breast reconstruction options available. Only 22% of women are familiar with the quality of outcomes that can be expected. Only 19% of women understand that the timing of their treatment for breast cancer and the timing of their decision to undergo reconstruction greatly impacts their options and results. While your bra may have been your only source for support in the past, you'll learn to rely on a different kind of push-up in the future: the breast cancer community and your doctor. Be proactive about your health. Women that detect their cancer in Stage 1 have an 86% survival rate.

According to the American Cancer Society cases of melanoma in the u.s. have more then tripled in the last twenty years…making skin cancer the number one cancer in america…using sun screen and yearly visits to the dermatologist is crucial in keeping your skin safe. here’s mary norton with the story. Enjoying a life time of fun in the sun can lead to skin cancer in your 40’s, and 50’s…and moles can be the first sign of a deadly form of skin cancer…melanoma. even though melanoma accounts for only 10 percent of all skin cancers, it’s responsible for nearly 80 percent of skin cancer deaths. When planning a day in the sun, apply sun screen before you head out. make sure to wear protective clothing such as a hat and long sleeved shirts or use an umbrella for extra shade. and it’s important to remember that those with darker skin color are just as susceptible to skin cancer as those with lighter skin tones. For those over age 45 dermatologist recommend doing a skin check monthly and those with darker skin tones should check their palms, fingernails and feet carefully.

BY CHRISTINE SLUSSER ANCHOR MEGAN MURPHY You're watching multisource health video news analysis from Newsy. The Associated Press reports The American Cancer Society is not recommending routine prostate cancer screenings for most men. The news comes after the results of a 20-year Swedish study were published, saying the exam is not necessary and does not help prevent cancer. “Gentlemen, listen to this. Getting a prostate exam routinely may not help you in the long run. Researchers say they found no difference in the rates of prostate cancer for men who got screenings and those who didn't.” (Video source: KNXV) The study involved 9,000 Swedish men--and it suggests routine screenings are, well...useless. ...but there are other ways to tell if a man is at risk for prostate cancer. San Francisco CBS-affiliate KCBS says balding may be the way to tell. REPORTER: “In a French study, doctors found that if a man in his early 20s has a pronounced widow's peak from his hair receding, he should be vigilant about screening for prostate cancer.” “It means younger men who are having male pattern baldness in their 20s probably need to start getting tested for prostate cancer with a blood test called a PSA blood test earlier than normal men who don't start until age 50. ” Boston NBC-affiliate WNDH spoke with a man who suggests all sorts of screenings-- prostate, colon, and even smoking cessation. He says these are the most important things when it comes to nipping cancer before it’s a problem. “Early detection, early diagnosis are the next most important thing. Then getting cancer treated early because when it’s early, there's less cancer to get rid of. It just makes perfect sense. You have a better chance of getting rid of it completely.” But the Prostate Cancer Charity disagrees with the new study, and BBC spoke with a representative who says the study was too small and contradicts a bigger study (and better, in her opinion) that published opposite results. That study says the screenings do help prevent cancer. “‘Whilst this research suggests that screening men for prostate cancer doesn't reduce the number of men dying from the disease, this was a relatively small study and not all the screening rounds used the PSA test, which is the most effective test we have at the moment to indicate prostate problems that might be cancer.” One in four newly diagnosed cancers in UK men is prostate cancer. ...but what do you think?

Learn, Speak, Act: Recording artist Mike-E and the American Cancer Society inform about lack of health care access among African Americans. The American Cancer Society has partnered with international recording artist and poet, Michael "MIKE-E" Ellison to produce a public service announcement (PSA) entitled Learn. Speak. Act. With 24 percent of African Americans living below the poverty line, and 21 percent lacking health insurance, the high-energy, hard-hitting spots draw attention to the need for quality, affordable health care for all Americans. Currently, 47 million people in America are without health insurance and millions more have inadequate health coverage, and may be just one illness, injury or missed paycheck away from financial ruin. The issue of inadequate access to health care has been the focus of a major public awareness campaign that the Society launched in the fall of 2007. Research has shown that lack of adequate health insurance coverage is associated with less access to care and poorer outcomes for cancer patients. Enabling more African Americans to get necessary cancer screenings is critical, as African Americans are more likely than whites to be diagnosed with cancer at a later stage, and less likely than whites to survive five years after diagnosis for most cancers at all stages of diagnosis. The PSA featuring MIKE-E is an effort to raise awareness of the issue among African Americans. To view Multimedia News Release, go to *******www.prnewswire****/mnr/ad-itive/32818/
