Start Checking More Than Moles

Now that summer has come and gone, you may be packing away your beach supplies and starting to shop for sweaters and boots. But before you switch gears completely to a fall mindset, give your skin a thorough examination after summer’s extra sun exposure. And while we all are aware of the necessity of checking our moles for changes that might signal the possibility of cancer, new research suggests that we need to be much more conscious of any changes to the rest of our skin if we want to catch any developing melanomas at an early stage.

Chemotherapy side effects enable cancer cells to spread from breast to lungs

Most people are aware that chemotherapy, a primary cancer treatment, can cause harsh chemotherapy side effects. However, now research by Tsonwin Hai and his team of scientists is showing that chemotherapy can actually trigger cellular responses that lead to the spread of more cancer in adjacent areas. Breast cancer survival rates have been improving in recent years. However, this news that chemotherapy can actually promote the spread of cancer would make it by far one of the most disturbing chemotherapy side effects ever documented.

Nighttime Lights and Cancer Risk

If you’re the type who thinks that dark stretches of unlit roads are the stuff horror movies are made of, you’re hardly alone. Lots of us feel much safer and more secure in places that are well lit after the sun goes down. And while that artificial lighting may give us a better view of our surroundings and willingness to go out more often at night, it also could be doing us harm. According to new research, nighttime lights might be contributing to the development of breast cancer.

Vitamin C Does Reverse Cancer— Now It’s On Track For Approval As A Chemo Alternative

Vitamin C Does Reverse Cancer— Now It’s On Track For Approval As A Chemo Alternative

High-dose vitamin C does kill cancer—but only when it’s given intravenously. It’s now just a few steps away from being approved as a safe and effective cancer treatment alongside chemotherapy and radiation.

Although researchers have tested the vitamin as a cancer therapy many times, they almost always concluded that it was ineffective—but they were guaranteeing failure by giving it orally to patients.

Top 9 supplements to stop cancer naturally

Cancer, second only to heart disease as a cause of death in the United States, claims over 591,000 lives per year. Now, a groundbreaking study conducted at Stony Brook University in New York shows that 90 percent of all cancers – many more than had been previously thought – may be caused by environmental and lifestyle factors, such as smoking, drinking and diet. The findings, which suggest that cancer is more preventable than previously believed, inject a note of hope into the battle against this devastating disease.

Cancer Survivors Seek Unneeded Tests for Reassurance

Many people who survive cancer fear recurrence after their treatment ends, according to a study that suggests these concerns may lead to unnecessary tests. Data from 12 previously published studies involving 849 patients show that after completing treatment, patients want as many follow-up exams and tests as possible to reassure them that tumors have not returned, researchers found.

“Patients want intensive follow-up which comprises a lot of testing,” said senior study author Geertruida de Bock, of the University of Groningen in the Netherlands.
