In health news, a quick way to boost your brain and a new threat linked to carrying extra weight around your middle in middle age. But first, could popular gel manicures increase the risk of skin cancer? Researchers decided to investigate after reading multiple reports of very rare cancers on the fingers of people who frequently got gel manicures.

After feeling a lump in her breast, Lainie J. never thought she would be diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer at 24, especially after beating cancer when she was 18 months old. In her story, she shares how she’s been diagnosed with 5 different cancers: adrenal carcinoma, breast cancer, melanoma, thyroid cancer and sarcoma. Watch Lainie’s Video Series Here: https://youtu.be/jaDYvorrkPESeg. 1: I have been Diagnosed with 5 Different Cancers but I am Thriving | https://youtu.be/jaDYvorrkPESeg. 2: Rare Disorder Means I Get Cancer Scans Every 3 Months! | https://youtu.be/0t5ZX2pHLbU#cancerstories #cancerpatient #cancersurvivor #patientstories #thepatientstory #adrenalcancer #adcsm #bcsm #breastcancer #sarcoma #scmsm #thyroidcancer #thycsm #melanoma #melsm #fivecancers #lifraumenisyndrome #cancerawareness

A Living Library for Uveal Melanoma with Dr. Lauren Dalvin, M.D. [Video]

Source:https://www.podbean.com/eau/pb-nt4j4-136f6ddA Cure in Sight is joined for a webinar titled: A Living Library for Uveal Melanoma with Dr. Lauren Dalvin, M.D. “Uveal melanoma is the most common intraocular cancer in adults. Despite successful treatment of the eye tumor, up to 50% of patients with uveal melanoma will eventually develop metastatic disease. Unfortunately, there are limited effective treatment options once this cancer has spread. Thus, there is an urgent need for new, personalized therapies to improve survival for patients with uveal melanoma. We have addressed a major barrier to uveal melanoma research, a lack of representative human disease models, by creating a unique biobank of patient-derived organoids. Organoids are three-dimensional models which simulate cancer behavior in the laboratory and can be used to study cancer biology and response to treatment. In both patients and in our laboratory, we find that each melanoma is unique. Using the collection of organoids in our lab, we will be able to study unique molecular signatures and identify personalized treatments for this cancer. Today we’ll talk about how we created these tiny tumor models and show you what it looks like to grow uveal melanoma in the lab.” Dr. Lauren A. Dalvin is a full-time Ocular Oncologist and Associate Professor of Ophthalmology with a joint appointment in Medical Oncology at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN. ANNOUNCEMENTS:Steps for Sight Registration is open!

Nose Basal Cell Carcinoma treated with Moh’s Surgery [Video]

Mohs surgery differs from other skin cancer treatments in that it permits the immediate and complete microscopic examination of the removed cancerous tissue, so that all “roots” and extensions of the cancer can be eliminated. Due to the methodical manner in which tissue is removed and examined, Mohs surgery has been recognized as the skin cancer treatment with the highest reported cure rate.To learn more about Moh’s Surgery:https://contourderm.com/services-and-procedures/mohs-micrographic-surgery-skin-cancer-removal/Dr. Jochen specializes in Mohs Surgery for skin cancer removal, facial rejuvenation including cosmetic laser technology, Botox®, and facial fillers, soft tissue augmentation, leg and facial vein treatment, tumescent liposuction, and hair restoration/transplants.Follow us on:💙 Instagram – https://www.instagram.com/contourderm/💙 Pinterest – https://www.pinterest.com/contourderm760/💙 Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/ContourDermatology
