Some women no longer feel like they ever had breast cancer when they look in the mirror, thanks to a complex new procedure available at Houston Methodist in The Woodlands.
Breast Cancer does not run in Tana Key’s family. The occupational therapist had a normal mammogram. But not even a full year later, she began to feel what was only suspected to be a small, flared-up lymph node.
A thorough investigation in the dense tissue eventually resulted in the discovery of a small spot of Ductal carcinoma in situ — breast cancer, stage 0. But the diagnosis was not a death sentence.
After deciding to remove both breasts, a bilateral mastectomy, Key, 48, learned that precancerous cells were found in her other breast as well. She believes the early detection made it possible to prevent the potentially fatal spread.
“I chose the more aggressive surgical route because I didn’t want

With so many of us slouched over laptops on our couches or in armchairs that aren’t designed for working, it’s more important than ever to be mindful of our posture. There are several parts of the body where a weak spot could be potentially contributing to posture issues. On the front of the body, that’s the abs, hip flexors, and hip rotators, while on the back it’s the thoracic spine, hamstrings and calves.
In a new Athlean-X video, Jeff Cavaliere C.S.C.S. breaks down his 22-day plan for testing and correcting these areas of weakness. He starts on Day 1 with an individualized test for each area. Once you’ve carried out your test on Day 1, the next 20 days alternate between stretch sessions and strength sessions based on the areas of weakness you have identified.
In order to test thoracic extension (a common complaint area), Cavaliere does the
The Heart Foundation has partnered with Coles to launch a health hub providing information, recipes, and tips on nutrition, exercise, health, and wellbeing.
The Coles Health Hub will be promoted via double-page spreads in News Corp’s Sunday mastheads until early next year. In addition to the #RejuveNation spreads, the hub will be advertised through an integrated editorial, print and digital campaign across News Corp, extending the media company’s relationship with The Heart Foundation.
Late last month, the Foundation launched its ‘Hand on Heart’ campaign, led by former Yellow Wiggle Greg Page and a cardiologist-in-training who survived a heart attack at 24-years-old.
Chief marketing officer Chris Taylor said the new initiative with Coles is a “unique opportunity to amplify our heart-healthy messages across Australian communities as they face the stress of everyday life under COVID normal”.
University of Washington and Vitality study found that 27% of US personal health care expenses were attributable to risk factors like obesity and smoking
CHICAGO and SEATTLE, Sept. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Modifiable health risks, such as obesity, high blood pressure, and smoking, were linked to over $730 billion in in health care spending in the US in 2016, according to a study published in The Lancet Public Health. Researchers from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), an independent global health research center at the University of Washington School of Medicine, and Vitality Group, found that the costs were largely due to five risk factors: overweight and obesity, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, poor diet, and smoking. Spending associated with risk factors in 2016 constituted 27% of the $2.7 trillion spent on health care that was included in the study.
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) — Two people at the top of a massage therapy licensing scheme will serve federal prison time and house arrest.
The scheme was previously exposed by 13 Investigates in an ongoing investigation into illicit spas in Colorado.
Kevin Shen, 49, originally from China and currently living in Massachusetts, was sentenced to serve 15 months in prison for his role as the leader of the scheme. Marla Daniels, 51, of Oklahoma City, was sentenced to serve three years of probation, including eight months of home detention.
Federal prosecutors said between February 2015 and March 2018, Shen and Daniels fraudulently obtained the questions and answers to the exam that Colorado requires to become a massage therapist. Shen apparently had the questions and answers translated from English to Chinese and created cheat sheets for the exam. According to court documents, the pair charged massage therapy students from the Majestic
A new semester means a fresh start, especially for the newest members of UConn Nation. The fall doesn’t just bring an influx of new students, but new faculty as well.
The UConn School of Nursing welcomed three tenure-track faculty members, a new director of simulation-based education, and an associate professor from UConn’s Department of Allied Health Sciences for the Fall 2020 semester.
“Our number one priority is to provide our students with an exceptional nursing education,” says Dean Deborah Chyun. “Our talented faculty are tackling distance learning head-on and imparting valuable knowledge to our students as they prepare to enter the health care industry. I am thrilled with the experience, research, and innovation our new faculty members are bringing to our School.”

The Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) offers pre-marital health examination at 25 centres across the country, the ministry said on Sunday. The service enables couples to request a pre-marital screening to ascertain whether they are free from genetic, infectious, or sexually transmitted diseases and to safeguard their health by ensuring that no infection will be transmitted between them.
The ministry said results valid for three months are issued within three to 10 working days.
Premarital testing decreases congenital anomalies and can prevent common inherited blood disorders such as thalassemia and sickle cell anemia, the MoHAP said. “It decreases and prevents the transmission of some sexually transmitted diseases and reduces mother-to-child transmissions of some infectious diseases that might lead to congenital anomalies or mental retardation, and sometimes even death.
