Presentation by MD on Hyperthermia Cancer Treatment
 
03:18
Ellen Jones, MD, PHD from Duke University describes postitive results of Hyperthermia study. Hyperthermia therapy is a treatment used in battling cancer by heating tumors. The Heating is about as warm as a hot tub. Research has shown that heat can damage or kill cancer cells in some tumors while also making radiation and chemotherapy more effective. While it has been known for hundreds of years that fevers can kill cancer, only recently has technology been developed that can control and focus heat specifically on tumors. Local hyperthermia treatment (heat applied to a very small area, such as a tumor) is a well-established cancer treatment. Primary malignant tumors have a bad blood circulation, which make them more sensitive to changes in temperature. "Our own clinical experience and the results of numerous published studies are highly encouraging in that increased use of hyperthermia will improve the quality of life for cancer patients and improve control of cancer recurrences." Dr. Gerald Sokol, New Hope Cancer Center, Hudson, FL. "Hyperthermia is offering our patients new hope. We are often seeing faster responses, better cancer control, and fewer side effects." Dr. Leland Rogers, GammaWest, Salt Lake City, Utah "Hyperthermia gives us a method to treat people when there are few other alternatives. It's an additional form of treatment that can be done in difficult cases, usually without serious side effects or complications." Dr. Steven Stroup, Centennial Hospital, Nashville, Tenn. "When the tumor is of larger size, it is unresectable surgically. Also, radiation has less effect on the center part of the tumor, which is deprived of the oxygen blood supply and the nutrients. By increasing the temperature of the tissues from 42-44 degrees centigrade, (hyperthermia) increases the circulation, increases the oxygenation, so that the radiation is more effective."

St. Mark's Hospital Foundation: A Future Free From the Fear of Bowel Disease
 
10:54
St. Mark's Hospital Foundation is delighted to present the new video 'a future free from the fear of bowel disease' St. Mark's Hospital is widely recognised as a world centre of excellence in the fight against colorectal cancer, otherwise known as bowel cancer, as well as leading the world in research into inflammatory bowel disease, otherwise known as Crohn's disease and Ulcerative Colitis. This film provides a real insight into the cutting edge research to beat bowel cancer and one day develop an effective treatment for Crohn's disease and Ulcerative Colitis, to totally manage these painful and debilitating diseases and provide the most advanced treatments. In the video you will hear from Professor Robin Phillips, Clinical Director of the Hospital, about research to alleviate the pain and suffering of Fistulae. Professor Phillips will also introduce and explain the USP of St.Mark's, which is the unique culture whereby for many decades one generation of world leading surgeons, doctors and nurses have passed their skills, knowledge and expertise to the next generation of Research fellows, who through the training they receive at St.Mark's are destined to be the future world leading surgeons, doctors and nurses. Miss Nuha Yassin, a rising star of St. Mark's explains what it means to have a mentor such as Professor Robin Phillips encouraging her to be the best she can be, and fully supporting her to achieve it. You will then hear from Professor Sue Clark, Director of the Polyposis registry, about the vital work St. Mark's is carrying out in the area of Cancer and Inherited Cancer. Genetics plays a key role in finding the key to unlock a cure for cancer and as the oldest registry of families with cancer, Professor Clark and her team are leading the way in the fight to unlock a cure. Dr Ailsa Hart and her team in the IBD Department explain how through innovative research including research into the efficacy of Vitamin D and research into targeting medical therapies in Crohn's disease, they are working to remove the fear of Crohn's disease, and create effective treatments that will totally manage the symptoms and unlock the cause of Crohn's disease. Dr Simon Gabe, Head of the Intestinal Rehabilitation Department at St.Mark's and Dr Tahera Ansari, Senior Clinical Research Fellow who leads a team of researchers at Northwick Park Institute for Medical Research explain their research into tissue issue engineering the worlds first functional intestinal tissue, leading to the world's first tissue engineered replacement bowel, which will be grown from the patient's own stem cells thus avoiding organ rejection and a lifetime on immunosuppressant drugs. This work has potential benefit for patients with Crohn's disease who have lost a large part of their bowel and can no longer absorb nutrition through eating and are on Total Parental Nutrition (TPN) to obtain their nourishment. Professor Brian Saunders, Director of The Wolfson Institute for Endoscopy, one of only 14 accredited world centres of excellence for Endoscopy, which also houses the Kennedy Leigh Academic Centre for Training in Endoscopy, explains the exciting research that is being undertaken to develop the Colonoscopic Surgical Unit (CSU) to provide minimally invasive surgery for patients with small growths in their bowel, called polyps. With the advent of the National Bowel Cancer Screening Programme, many more people are being identified with polyps. If caught early they can be removed as day care surgery, but if left to grow they can develop into cancerous bowel tumours which at a later stage of development are much harder to remove, and lead to loss of large part's of healthy bowel in order to fully excise these silent killers. The CSU, is developing minimally invasive surgical procedures, new surgical equipment and innovative ways of personalising the treatment pathway for patients with polyps and early stage cancer, to be able to meet the very large demand that exists for day care surgery with virtually no recovery time. You will also hear from Mr Peter Dale and Mr Justin Hansen, the Gutless Kayaker, who paddled 420 miles from South Yorkshire to Bristol to raise funds for FLEX, and in doing created a world record for someone on Total Parental Nutrition. This video was previewed at a Dinner at the V & A, attended by cast members of Casualty, and addressed by our guest speaker Lord Gowrie. Previous Dinners have been attended by Chris Evans and Lewish Moody and we hope to welcome new supporters to future Dinners.

Modified Radical Mastectomy..!! Breast Cancer Removal Surgery..!! MRM Surgery..!!
 
22:33
Radical mastectomy is a surgical procedure involving the removal of breast, underlying chest muscle (including pectoralis major and pectoralis minor), and lymph nodes of the axilla as a treatment for breast cancer. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women today, and is primarily treated by surgery, particularly during the early twentieth century when the mastectomy was developed with success.[1] However, with the advancement of technology and surgical skills, the extent of mastectomies has been reduced. Less invasive mastectomies are employed today in comparison to those in the past. Nowadays, a combination of radiotherapy and breast conserving mastectomy are employed to optimize treatment. Modified Radical Mastectomy:: When treating breast cancer, a doctor’s goal is to remove all of the cancer -- or as much of it as possible. Surgery is one of the mainstays of treatment, and a procedure called modified radical mastectomy (MRM) is now a standard surgical treatment for early-stage breast cancers. It’s especially helpful for treating early-stage breast cancer that has spread to the lymph nodes. Studies show MRM is as effective as a traditional radical mastectomy, but takes much less of a toll on a woman’s appearance. Because of the success with MRMs, traditional radical mastectomies are rarely done today. What Is Modified Radical Mastectomy? MRM doesn’t remove chest muscles like a traditional radical mastectomy does. During the procedure, the surgeon removes the breast, including the skin, breast tissue, areola, and nipple, and most of the lymph nodes under the arm. The lining over the large muscle in the chest is also removed, but the muscle itself is left in place. Following a traditional radical mastectomy, women often have a hollow in the chest. Because the chest muscle is kept in place with an MRM, this doesn’t happen. While you are under general anesthesia, the surgeon will make a single incision across one side of the chest. The skin is pulled back, and the doctor will remove the entire breast tissue, along with the lining over the pectoralis major. Usually, he’ll remove some of the lymph nodes under your arm as well. The goal of the surgery is to remove the cancer but preserve as much of the skin and tissue as possible so that you can have breast reconstruction, if you chose. Although research has found MRM to be generally safe and effective, like all surgical procedures it can have risks. They include: Bleeding Infection Swelling of the arm Pockets of fluid forming underneath the incision (called seromas) Risks from general anesthesia Some people have numbness in the upper arm after surgery. It’s caused by damage to small nerves in the area where the lymph nodes are taken out. There is a good chance that you’ll regain most of the feeling in your arm over time. Lymph nodes that are removed will be sent to a lab to see whether the cancer has spread to them.

Landon Riddle's Story: 3 Year old beats Leukemia with cannabis oil (MORE at cureyourowncancer.org)
 
05:16
He's only 3 years old, but Landon Riddle is already the focus of a medical marijuana fight in Colorado. Landon has acute lymphocytic leukemia, or ALL, a cancer of the blood and bone marrow. It's the most common cancer in children. His mother says his condition has improved so much following treatment with medical marijuana that chemotherapy isn't needed. But the Children's Hospital of Colorado, she says, disagreed. It all started back in September 2012. Landon, then 2, was living with his mother, Sierra Riddle, in St. George, Utah, when he developed a sore throat and swollen lymph nodes. The emergency room doctor said it was a virus and sent him home. School stops giving boy medical pot Is medical marijuana right for a 3-year-old? "Please don't let my daughter die" Two days later he went back. His armpits were swollen. "They thought it was either a virus or infection in the lymph nodes, so they gave him some antibiotics," Sierra Riddle says. But on the fifth day, his mother says she was changing his diaper and noticed his groin was also swollen, as well as his abdomen and throat. He was having trouble breathing. That time, she got a frightening diagnosis: cancer. New York governor announces plan for medical marijuana at hospitals Landon was flown to a children's hospital in Salt Lake City. "His whole chest was full of leukemia tumors, which is why he couldn't breathe," his mother says. "They started him on chemo, but told us that he probably wasn't going to make it." Landon's cancer had quickly progressed, leading doctors to give him an 8% chance of survival, she says. In general, ALL is one of the most curable cancers. According to the American Cancer Society, more than 90% of children diagnosed with the disease survive. Chemotherapy is the standard treatment, and Riddle says doctors put Landon on a four-year treatment plan. The first two months of chemo went fairly well, but then Landon became extremely ill. "Most days he couldn't get off the couch," Riddle remembers. "He would just lay there and throw up and throw up." Riddle says he also developed neuropathy -- a symptom of nerve damage that can cause weakness, numbness and pain -- in his legs that left him barely able to walk. Around that time, a friend set up a Facebook page called Offer Hope for Landon, and recommendations started streaming in, including several endorsing cannabis -- medical marijuana -- as a treatment. Medical marijuana, however, isn't legal in Utah. Still, desperate for answers, Sierra Riddle and her mother, Wendy Riddle, started looking into it. They considered going to California or Oregon. Then their research led them to the Stanley brothers in Colorado. The six brothers are one of that state's biggest cannabis growers and dispensary owners. The Stanleys produce about 500 pounds of medical marijuana a year. At the time, much of it was high in THC -- tetrahydrocannabinol, the psychoactive ingredient in pot that gets users high but also helps patients with an array of conditions including pain and nausea. But the Stanleys were also growing something quite revolutionary: a plant cross-bred to reduce the THC and increase another compound found in cannabis called cannabidiol, or CBD. Many researchers believe CBD is one of the compounds in marijuana that has medicinal benefits. According to the National Cancer Institute, it's thought to have significant analgesic, anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor activity without the psychoactive effect. The Stanleys expect to produce over 1,000 pounds this year, most of it the cross-bred variety, according to Joel Stanley. Dr. Sanjay Gupta: Why I changed my mind on weed Riddle, herself a recovering heroin addict, struggled with the idea of giving Landon marijuana. "I was telling my mom, you know, 'We really need to think about this.'" But, says Riddle, her son was already prescribed medications like OxyContin and morphine -- medications with significant side effects. Landon suffered from stomach failure, and "the OxyContin made him so miserable, when he had hair, he would literally try to pull his hair out." In the end, she decided she had nothing else to lose and moved to Colorado. She rented a room, got Landon's medical marijuana card and began giving him marijuana -- THC for the pain and nausea, but also CBD. The dose was based on Landon's weight. He first took it in oil form, but now takes a pill. Once the doses started, "Landon's (red and white blood cell) counts increased dramatically," she says. Six months later, encouraged by Landon's progress, she stopped his chemotherapy treatments completely. "Once I took the chemo out, I see these amazing results. And no more need for blood transfusion and platelet transfusions," Riddle says. "I think that the chemo in combination with the cannabis did put him into remission and now the cannabis will keep him there." http://www.cnn.com/2014/01/15/health/cannabis-landon-riddle/index.html?hpt=he_c1

How to do MRM (Breast Cancer Surgery - Modified Radical Mastectomy) in Male by Dr Majid Ahmed

https://goo.gl/iIrBBH Breast Cancer - How to do Modified Radical Mastectomy (MRM) in Male by Dr Majid Ahmed, Batra Hospital and Medical Research Centre, New Delhi. Breast Cancer in Male and Surgical Technique. Male breast cancer (male breast neoplasm) is a rare cancer in males that originates from the breast. Many males with breast cancer have inherited a BRCA mutation, but there are other causes, including alcohol abuse and exposure to certain hormones and ionizing radiation. As it presents a similar pathology as female breast cancer, assessment and treatment relies on experiences and guidelines that have been developed in female patients. The optimal treatment is currently not known. About one percent of breast cancer develops in males. Known risk factors include radiation exposure, exposure to female hormones (estrogen), and genetic factors. High estrogen exposure may occur by medications, obesity, or liver disease, and genetic links include a high prevalence of female breast cancer in close relatives. Chronic alcoholism has been linked to male breast cancer. The highest risk for male breast cancer is carried by males with Klinefelter syndrome. How to Diagnosis Male Breast Cancer? Typically self-examination leads to the detection of a lump in the breast which requires further investigation. Other less common symptoms include nipple discharge, nipple retraction. swelling of the breast, or a skin lesion such as an ulcer. Ultrasound and mammography may be used for its further definition. The lump can be examined either by a needle biopsy where a thin needle is placed into the lump to extract some tissue or by an excisional biopsy where under local anesthesia a small skin cut is made and the lump is removed. Not all palpable lesions in the male breast are cancerous, for instance a biopsy may reveal a benign fibroadenoma. In a larger study from Finland the average size of a male breast cancer lesion was 1.8 cm. Beside the histologic examination estrogen and progesterone receptor studies are performed. Further, the HER2 test is used to check for a growth factor protein. Its activity can be increased in active cancer cells and helps determine if monoclonal antibody therapy may be useful. Male breast cancer can recur locally after therapy, or can become metastatic. How Male breast cancer is Differences from female breast cancer? There are significant differences between male and female breast cancer. Lesions are easier to find in males due to the smaller breast size; however, lack of awareness may postpone seeking medical attention. The presence of gynecomastia may mask the condition. The diagnosis is made later in males—at age 67 on average—than in females with their average at 63. Lesions are less contained in males as they do not have to travel far to infiltrate skin, nipple, or muscle tissue. Thus, lesions in males tend to be more advanced. Almost half of male breast cancer patients are stage III or IV. In familial cases, male BRCA2 carriers are at higher risk, rather than BRCA1 carriers. With the relative infrequency of male breast cancer, randomized studies are lacking. What is the surgical Treatment of Breast cancer in male? The initial treatment is surgical and consists of a modified radical mastectomy with axillary dissection or lumpectomy and radiation therapy with similar treatment results as in females. Also, mastectomy with sentinel lymph node biopsy is a treatment option. In males with node-negative tumors, adjuvant therapy is applied under the same considerations as in females with node-negative breast cancer. Similarly, with node-positive tumors, males increase survival using the same adjuvants as affected females, namely both chemotherapy plus tamoxifen and other hormonal therapy. There are no controlled studies in males comparing adjuvant options. In the vast majority of males with breast cancer hormone receptor studies are positive, and those situations are typically treated with hormonal therapy. Locally recurrent disease is treated with surgical excision or radiation therapy combined with chemotherapy. Distant metastases are treated with hormonal therapy, chemotherapy, or a combination of both. Bones can be affected either by metastasis or weakened from hormonal therapy; bisphosphonates and calcitonin may be used to counterbalance this process and strengthen bones.

Hyperthermia Treatment For Breast Cancer

News story about using hyperthermia as a treatment for breast cancer. Hyperthermia therapy is a treatment used in battling cancer by heating tumors. The Heating is about as warm as a hot tub. Research has shown that heat can damage or kill cancer cells in some tumors while also making radiation and chemotherapy more effective. While it has been known for hundreds of years that fevers can kill cancer, only recently has technology been developed that can control and focus heat specifically on tumors. Local hyperthermia treatment (heat applied to a very small area, such as a tumor) is a well-established cancer treatment. Primary malignant tumors have a bad blood circulation, which make them more sensitive to changes in temperature. "Our own clinical experience and the results of numerous published studies are highly encouraging in that increased use of hyperthermia will improve the quality of life for cancer patients and improve control of cancer recurrences." Dr. Gerald Sokol, New Hope Cancer Center, Hudson, FL. "Hyperthermia is offering our patients new hope. We are often seeing faster responses, better cancer control, and fewer side effects." Dr. Leland Rogers, GammaWest, Salt Lake City, Utah "Hyperthermia gives us a method to treat people when there are few other alternatives. It's an additional form of treatment that can be done in difficult cases, usually without serious side effects or complications." Dr. Steven Stroup, Centennial Hospital, Nashville, Tenn. "When the tumor is of larger size, it is unresectable surgically. Also, radiation has less effect on the center part of the tumor, which is deprived of the oxygen blood supply and the nutrients. By increasing the temperature of the tissues from 42-44 degrees centigrade, (hyperthermia) increases the circulation, increases the oxygenation, so that the radiation is more effective."

Novel Analysis Method Organizes Genomic Cancer Data
 
00:16
Multiplicity concepts can organize large amounts of varied genetic data into three-dimensional models. These models can reveal previously unknown relationships among genes involved with different cancers. They make whole-genome data more usable for both clinical and laboratory researchers--opening the door to new clinical trials and helping focus the search for cancer-causing mutations. Full Press Release: SALT LAKE CITY—The technology that allows scientists to profile the entire genome of individual tumors offers new hope for discovering ways to select the best treatment for each patient's particular type of cancer. However, these profiles produce huge amounts of data, and the volume alone creates unique analytical problems. In a study published on-line this week in the journal BMC Medical Genomics, researchers from Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) at the University of Utah describe a new analytical approach based on a concept called multiplicity, that can organize large amounts of varied genetic data. The method allows researchers to create three-dimensional models revealing previously unknown relationships among the genes involved with different types of cancer. "This technique shows similar genetic profiles for different types of cancers, which could open the door to trials of already approved drugs for additional cancers," said Lewis Frey, Ph.D., assistant professor in the Department of Biomedical Informatics and an HCI investigator. "It can bring to light previously unknown genetic connections between different cancers, helping focus the search for cancer-causing genetic mutations. It makes whole genome data more usable for both clinical and laboratory researchers." Stephen R. Piccolo, Ph.D., a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Biomedical Informatics at the University of Utah, and Mary E. Edgerton, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Pathology at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, are co-authors of the article. The study was funded in part by an Incentive Seed Grant from the University of Utah, and a National Library of Medicine training grant.

Brachytherapy - Advanced Radiation Cancer Treatments in Utah
 
01:01
http://www.gammawest.com/ - Brachytherapy is among the safest and most effective ways to treat common forms of cancer. Fortunately, we have clinics all over the state of Utah that provide this treatment. For example, those suffering from prostate cancer may elect to get a brachytherapy implant to gradually reduce the size of a growth or mass. There are two basic options for brachytherapy implants: one is a permanent implant to the source of the cancer and another is temporary. If you’ve had recurring bouts with cancer in a certain area of the body, the permanent implant may be a good choice. For those that suffer from breast cancer or recurring bouts with breast cancer, brachytherapy can be a strong solution. At Gamma West Cancer Services, we hold the health of each patient in the highest regard. Our doctors like to eliminate deadly cancers before they can spread, but they also believe in providing patients with the best quality of life during treatment. Therefore, those who may have chosen to take the painful route of chemotherapy now have an alternative path to wellness that may allow them to function.
