Breast Cancer
Breast cancer is a disease that causes the cells inside of the breast to grow in an abnormal way. Breast cancer primarily affects women but in rare cases has been known to develop in men. The most common symptoms of breast cancer include, lumps in the breast; changes to the shape of the nipple or breast; and unusual discharge coming from the nipple. There are many different methods for treating breast cancer, such as chemotherapy, radiation, and even surgery.
Skin Cancer
Skin cancer is a disease that causes an abnormal growth of skin cells. There are three major types of skin cancer, this includes basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. Most often skin cancer develops on the parts of the body that are frequently exposed to the sun, but can be found anywhere on the body. Reducing your exposure to ultraviolet radiation is your best option for reducing the risk of this disease.
Uterine Cancer
There are multiple types of uterine cancer; the most common form begins to develop in the lining of the uterus, known as the endometrium. This type of cancer is most common in patients that have already gone through menopause and are obese. If you are experiencing abnormal bleeding, pelvic pain, or difficulty urinating, speak with a physician about your symptoms. The most common treatment for uterine cancer is the removal of the uterus, but in some cases chemotherapy or radiation may be required.
Colon and other gastrointestinal cancers
Gastrointestinal (GI) cancer is the umbrella term used to describe the collection of cancers that affect the gastrointestinal tract and organs that are a part of the digestive system. These organs include the esophagus, pancreas, stomach, colon, rectum, anus, liver, biliary system, and small intestine.
A biopsy is a test that is done to extract a sample of cells or tissues in an area of the body for examination, in order to find the presence or extent of a disease. Biopsies can be taken from external areas of the body, such as the skin, or from internal parts of the body, such as from an organ. Biopsies are often used to detect the presence of cancer.
Cancer Scans
Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are both effective medical scans that are used to help provide insight into the condition and health of internal systems in the body. These scans are both frequently used to detect the presence of cancer and other diseases.
Bloodwork is used to provide insight to many different aspects of our health, including the level of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Additionally, these tests can help to determine the hemoglobin levels that are present in someone’s blood. All of this information can help doctors to identify issues with the body that may otherwise be symptomless.
