One of the best way to fight cancer is to prevent it, or even just by discovering it early, that is why early screening is important for many types of cancer.  So here are some guidelines provided by the American Cancer Society to help you understand more about the different time interval and age that you should begin screening.  For seniors and elderly, as long as they are in good health, these screenings should still be performed. In the case for breast cancer, mammograms and clinical breast exam should begin at around age 40 every year. For those younger, a clinical breast exam should be done every three years.  Beginning at age 50, screening for colorectal cancer and polyps are recommended to both gender.  Lastly, reduce your risk by staying away from tobacco, regular exercises, and eat healthy with plenty of fruits and vegetables.  But all in all, have an open discussion with your doctor about the type of screenings that is right for you or your loved ones, and live a healthy lifestyle.

Despite having come so far in our knowledge of mental and developmental disabilities since the 1800’s, the general public and media still have many misguided ideas about people with such disabilities. For instance some people believe that people with such disabilities shouldn’t be treated as equals because they cannot learn or make decisions for themselves. Not only do we believe that they should they be treated as equal humans as everyone else, but we know for a fact that they certainly are able to learn and feel, just not in the same way that most of us would. In an effort to better educate the public on this topic, we’ve provided some facts to go up against some common myths about intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Myth: Persons with Intellectual Disability function as, and should be treated like, children. 

Fact: Persons with Intellectual Disability should be treated with respect and age appropriate like any other person.

Myth: Persons with Intellectual Disability are incapable of thinking or doing anything constructive. 

Fact: Persons with Intellectual Disability have different levels of functioning. Every individual has the ability to learn something and should be encouraged to do so.

Myth: Persons with Intellectual Disability cannot make decisions.

Fact: Every person can make decisions according to his or her level of intellectual functioning.

According to Mayo Clinic, there are a few possibilities of complications that can occur after the initial diagnosis of prostate cancer and treatments.  Although prostate cancer is usually a slow growing cancer that can be managed and controlled if detected early, but if detected later, cancer could be on the verge of spreading to other parts of the body such as the bloodstream, lymphatic system, your bones, or other organs. Symptoms from such can range from fatigue, weakness, and weight loss.  If spread to certain body parts, it can cause the blockage of urine, and lead to kidney problems.  Bone pain and risk of fracture are also complications if the prostate cancer has spread.

There are various treatments under the standard of care for prostate cancer, and some can cause incontinence due to the treatments’ side effects.  However, this can be treated with other medications or surgery.  Because hormonal treatment is top options for advanced prostate cancer, erectile dysfunction is also common as a result of prostate cancer treatments.  But don’t be discouraged, medications, devices, and surgery are all options to treat this complication.

If there seems to be an abnormal amount of spoiled food in the fridge, and that your parents seem to be much more forgetful as of late, their health could be in danger from the food safety.
