In a head-to-head debate recently published by the British Medical Journal, Laura Esserman argues against using the word “cancer” to describe low-risk malignancies. It’s no secret that there is a lot of fear-mongering in the cancer industry — nor is it a secret that cancer overdiagnosis and overtreatment are widespread issues. Esserman posits that changing the way we talk about ultra-low-risk cancers can help reduce overtreatment — and reduce fear and anxiety for patients along with it. Estimates suggest that many millions of dollars are spent on chemotherapy treatment for ultra-low-risk lesions that may never turn … [Read more...] about Will renaming low-risk cancers minimize anxiety and harm caused by unnecessary investigation and treatment?
High risk cancer
(Reuters Health) - As adults, childhood cancer survivors have a 30-fold higher risk than the general population of developing common skin malignancies known as basal cell carcinoma, a Dutch study suggests. Compared to other adults, survivors had a more than two-fold higher risk of getting melanoma - the most aggressive and deadly type of skin cancer - and a more than seven-fold risk of squamous cell carcinoma, the second most common form of skin cancer after basal cell malignancies. The skin cancer risk was greater for childhood cancer survivors who were treated with radiation, and increased further with larger amounts of skin exposed to radiation therapy, the study also found. “Radiotherapy treatment for childhood cancer involves exposure to ionizing radiation that is able to cause damage in the DNA of cells,” said lead study author Jop Teepen of the Princess Maxima Center for Pediatric Oncology in Utrecht, The Netherlands. “This property of ionizing … [Read more...] about Childhood cancer survivors at high risk for skin malignancies

Anything coming out of a U.S. factory during this government shutdown now has an even higher chance of being contaminated with feces, E. coli, Salmonella, pathogens and parasites – more so than even before this crisis. Even infant formula is considered to be at high risk during the government shutdown, while the already dysfunctional Food and Drug Administration (FDA) functions on a skeleton crew for domestic inspections, since they think international food inspections are more important, for some unknown reason. Over two hundred million Americans eat … [Read more...] about SKELETON CREW only for FDA inspections of “high risk” U.S. food-processing facilities while government in shutdown – Domestic food gets even scarier
WOMEN are scared into seeking breast removals by DNA testing websites wrongly warning of cancer risk, experts say. The rogue services, which charge as little as £25 to scan for the flawed Jolie Gene, are causing unnecessary alarm and are a burden on the NHS. Yet the sites’ analysis is often poor and fails to consider family history, which significantly affects risk, doctors say. The gene is named after actress Angelina Jolie, 43, who had a mastectomy because she had the BRCA mutation. Websites offer to test for the gene by analysing saliva or cheek swab samples but they often throw up false results. Prof Anneke Lucassen, of the British Society of Genetic Medicine, said the results drove women to GPs who felt obliged to send them for more tests, costing taxpayers thousands. Even those found to have a mutation may not qualify for surgery on the NHS if they are not deemed “high risk”. However, there is nothing to stop worried women seeking the operation privately. … [Read more...] about Women frightened into breast-removal ops after being WRONGLY told they are at high risk of cancer by DNA testing websites
