General | Latest Info

While pink may be rage in October, we find ourselves turning to purple in November to support Pancreatic Cancer Awareness. While not common cancer, number of people affected is increasing every year with expect 55 500 to be diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer this year. The hardest part about Pancreatic Cancer is that there is no screening test, no blood work or X - ray to detect this cancer at an early stage. Instead, every person needs to be aware of warning signs that can suggest they might be at risk for having Pancreatic Cancer. These warning signs include: skin or white of eyes turning yellow Upper belly / stomach pain or back pain that does not get better with medication like ibuprofen or acetaminophen Indigestion or bad stomach ache that does not get better with antacids Unexplained weight loss when there has been no change in diet or exercise New diagnosis of diabetes late in life while person at any age can be diagnose with Pancreatic Cancer, most people diagnose with Pancreatic Cancer are between ages of 55 and 85 years old. If YOU are diagnosed with diabetes late in life and have no other risk factors for it, YOU may want to ask your doctor if YOU are at risk for Pancreatic Cancer. Along with having no good screening test, there are only two ways to actively prevent disease. The main one is to stop any tobacco smoking. Through research, we have now learnt that smoking is the number one thing a person can do to prevent Pancreatic Cancer. The second thing is to maintain a normal weight. Obesity is also associated with Pancreatic Cancer, so make sure to exercise at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. Also, try to eat healthy with normal size food portions. A good way to cut out sugar in your life is to remove all juice and soda. Try to drink water, tea, or coffee.

How peach became pink

Once again, ribbon have been cut and millions of sprinting women and men have begun the annual October marathon with the objective of raising money for Cancer Research. Various charities spend their contributions in different ways and it is actually quite easy to track your donations these days with one of independent sites on the Internet. Charitywatchfounded 25 years ago, is said to be America's most independent charity watchdog. Companies do merely repeat what charity reports, but dig deeply through records to let you know how efficiently charity will use your donation to fund programs you want to support. Some of US have innate trust for any charity with the word Cancer attached to it. Many, of course, are doing good and honest work. If in doubt, check them out with one of the charity watch services. That Pink Ribbon that seems to wrap around our planet each October is widely seen as the official symbol of breast cancerat, least of female variety. It is highly recognizable and carries strong psychological tug, and is most often associated with the Susan G. Komen group, but that isnt exactly where it start. By the way, no one company or organization or foundation owns rights to this worldwide symbol. However, individual Pink Ribbon designers can hold all rights reserved for their own designs. As example, Avon has its own, as does Estee Lauder. But around the world, the Pink Ribbon itself is considered public domain. So here then is the real story and the true link to Pink: Charlotte Hayey, who had battled Breast Cancer, introduced the concept of the peach - color Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbon. In the early 1990s, 68 - year - old Haley began making peach ribbons by hand in her home. Her daughter, sister and grandmother had Breast Cancer. She distributes thousands of ribbons at supermarkets with cards that read: National Cancer Institute annual budget is 1. 8 billion, only 5 percent goes to cancer prevention. Help the US wake up our legislators and America by wearing this Ribbon. As word spread, executives from Estee Lauder and Self Magazine asked Haley for permission to use her ribbon. Haley refused, saying the companies were too commercial. But Self really want to have her ribbon. The magazine consulted its lawyers and was advised to come up with another color. It chose pink, color that focus groups say is soothing, comforting and healing, far cry from what Breast Cancer really is. Soon Charlotte Haleys grassroots peach Ribbon was history, and her original idea became the Pink Ribbon that has come to be known as a worldwide symbol for Breast Cancer. Breast cancer movement is much bigger than in October. And it isnt only about finding a cure or getting a mammogram or raising money. It is about prevention and education and guaranteed treatment for everyone, women and men, rich or poor. It is a crusade that should unite all of the US at every level.

Colon cancer

According to the Colon Cancer Alliance, risk of developing Colon Cancer is one in 20. Doctors screen for this type of cancer by looking for polyps in the colon and rectum. Like most forms of cancer, early detection can make a big difference in survival rates. If identified at local stage, five - year survival rate is 90 percent. However, if identified at a later stage when cancer has spread, five - year survival rate is 12 percent. March is Colon Cancer Awareness month. You can show your support by wearing Blue on March 3, National Dress in Blue Day.


Cancer Awareness: Pancreatic and Colorectal

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, colorectal Cancer is a cancer killer in the US as well as in North Carolina. Fortunately, colorectal cancer is preventable when found early during routine screenings. Cdc has found rates of new cases and deaths are decreasing, and that 66 000 colorectal cancer cases were prevented between 2003 - 2007 with the help of screenings. Screening is recommended for adults over the age of 50 with no family history of colon Cancer. If you do have family history, screenings may start at the age of 40 or earlier, depending on when your family member was diagnose. There are a few different screening methods available, including: colonoscopy - gold standard of screening tools that can detect and remove growths during procedure. Stool tests - recommended every 1 - 3 years depending on type of test. If you test positive, you will need a colonoscopy. It can be positive for multiple reasons. Ct colonography - Often hard to get insurance approval for this test and has risks of radiation. Talk to your doctor about your risk factors and which screening method is best for you. Other less common risk factors include inflammatory bowel disease, like ulcerative colitis or Crohns Disease, and genetic predisposition such as familial adenomatous polyposis or hereditary nonpolyposis coli. People with early - stage colorectal Cancer rarely experience symptoms, but possible signs may involve: blood in stool if you are found to be anemic by blood test, abdominal pain, change in bowel habits - diarrhea, constipation or change in shape of stool.

Stomach cancer

Initially, pancreatic cancer tends to be silent and painless as it grow. By time it's large enough to cause symptoms, pancreatic cancer has generally grown outside the pancreas. Because of the location of pancreasA in the body, symptoms include: jaundice. As pancreatic cancer blocks ducts that release bile into the intestine, ingredients of bile build up in the blood. This turns skin and eyes yellow, condition called jaundice. The same blockage causes dark urine, light colored stools, and itching. Abdominal pain. Pancreatic cancer can cause dull ache in the upperA abdomen radiating to the back. Pain may come and go. Back pain. Bloating. Some people with pancreatic cancer have a sense of early fullness with meals or uncomfortable swelling in the abdomen. Nausea. Vomiting.

Pancreatic cancer

Early Pancreatic cancers often do not cause any signs or symptoms. By time they do cause symptoms, they have often grown very large or have already spread outside the pancreas. Having one or more of the symptoms below does not mean you have Pancreatic Cancer. In fact, many of these symptoms are more likely to be caused by other conditions. Still, if you have any of these symptoms, it is important to have them checked by a doctor so that cause can be found and treat, if needed. Jaundice and related symptoms Jaundice is yellowing of the eyes and skin. Most people with Pancreatic Cancer will have Jaundice as one of their first symptoms. Jaundice is caused by buildup of Bilirubin, dark yellow - brown substance made in liver. Normally, liver releases liquid called bile that contains Bilirubin. Bile goes through common bile duct into the intestines, where it helps break down fats. It eventually leaves the body on stool. When common bile duct become block, bile ca reach the intestines, and the amount of bilirubin in the body builds up. Cancers that start in the head of the pancreas are near common bile duct. These cancers can press on duct and cause Jaundice while they are still fairly small, which can sometimes lead to these tumors being found at an early stage. But cancers that start in the body or tail of the pancreas do press on the duct until they have spread through the pancreas. By this time, cancer has often spread beyond the pancreas. When Pancreatic Cancer spreads, it often goes to the liver. This can also cause jaundice. There are other signs of Jaundice as well as yellowing of eyes and skin: Dark urine: Sometimes, first sign of Jaundice is darker urine. As Bilirubin levels in the blood increase, urine becomes brown in color. Light - color or greasy stools: Bilirubin normally helps give stools their brown color. If bile duct is block, stools might be light - color or gray. Also, if bile and pancreatic enzymes ca get through to the intestines to help break down fats, stools can become greasy and might float in the toilet. Itchy skin: When Bilirubin builds up in the skin, it can start to itch as well as turn yellow. Pancreatic Cancer is not the most common cause of Jaundice. Other causes, such as gallstones, hepatitis, and other liver and bile duct diseases, are much more common. Belly or back pain Pain in the abdomen or back is common in Pancreatic Cancer. Cancers that start in the body or tail of the pancreas can grow fairly large and start to press on other nearby organs, causing pain. Cancer may also spread to nerves surrounding the pancreas, which often cause back pain. Pain in the abdomen or back is fairly common and is most often caused by something other than Pancreatic Cancer. Weight loss and poor appetite Unintended weight loss is very common in people with Pancreatic Cancer.
