Basal Cell Carcinoma Diagnosis and Management - OnlineDermClinic
http://www.onlinedermclinic.com In this tutorial, dermatologist Eric Stewart, MD, discusses the diagnosis and treatment options for basal cell carcinoma. Key Points *Most common form of skin cancer *Consists of bumps or growths which can be pearly or waxy, white, light pink, flesh-colored, or brown, sometimes slightly raised. Commonly, BCC will scab or bleed intermittently *Frequently occurs in sun-damaged skin *Does not usually metastasize. These are locally destructive cancers Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common form of skin cancer. It usually presents in areas of the skin exposed to sun, including the face, neck, head, chest and upper back, though it can appear anywhere. There are several subtypes, including nodular, infiltrating, morpheic, and superficial. In nodular BCC, the cancer presents itself as pearly, skin-colored or pink bumps, with tiny blood vessels often appearing on their surface. As the lesion grows, it may ulcerate or bleed with minor trauma. Infiltrating lesions often appear scar-like or depressed. They may often be shiny and have sores or scabs on their surface. Superficial BCC presents itself as pink or red scaly skin, often dry appearing. Lesions will slowly grow and the border of the lesion may become raised. This can be mistaken as a chronic rash such as ringworm or just dryness. This subtype is generally found on the trunk, arms, and legs. While BCC can affect any age or ethnic group, it most commonly appears in elderly fair complected caucasians. Chronic sun exposure is virtually always noted as a causative factor. There are also syndromes they convey a markedly elevated risk of BCC, such as nevoid Basal cell carcinoma Syndrome and Xeroderma Pigmentosa. Differential Diagnosis (Other conditions with similar appearance) Fibrous papule Sebaceous hyperplasia Nevus Seborrheic keratosis Melanoma Angiokeratoma Nummular Eczema Psoriasis Bowen disease Diagnosis Key Points *Diagnosis based on skin appearance *Skin biopsy performed to confirm diagnosis and rule out other conditions *Biopsy results indicate which treatment course is appropriate BCC is generally diagnosed based on appearance, then further classified by sub-type. Health care professionals will then perform a biopsy to confirm diagnosis and plot out treatment course. Treatment *Self-examination and evaluation by a dermatologist is key in identifying lesions early *Surgical removal is the most commonly employed treatment While self-examination is recommended to identify lesions, they must be treated by health care professionals. Once diagnosis is confirmed via biopsy, treatment will be depend on several factors. These may include size and location of the cancer, as well as the general health of the patient. In the case of nodular BCC, treatment options include electrodessication and curettage, surgical excision, Mohs Micrographic surgery, and radiation treatment of the affected area. Radiation is usually only used in cases where the affected person isn't a good candidate for surgery due to other health problems. With infiltrating BCC or morpheic BCC, treatment is more limited due to the aggressive and invasive nature of the disease. Mohs Micrographic surgery is usually the treatment of choice in this situation. Aggressive treatments are generally not required for instances of superficial BCC, as it is slow-growing and thin. In addition to conventional treatments such as cryosurgery, electrodessication and radiation treatment, topical options such as Imiquimod (which encourages the immune system to attack the BCC), Photodynamic therapy, and laser treatments can be used to combat the condition.

Delivering High-Quality Cancer Care: Charting a New Course for a System in Crisis
In the United States, approximately 14 million people have had cancer and more than 1.6 million new cases are diagnosed each year. However, more than a decade after the Institute of Medicine (IOM) first studied the quality of cancer care, the barriers to achieving excellent care for all cancer patients remain daunting. Care often is not patient-centered, many patients do not receive palliative care to manage their symptoms and side effects from treatment, and decisions about care often are not based on the latest scientific evidence. This lecture presents a conceptual framework for improving the quality of cancer care for for cancer care teams, patients and their families, researchers, and insurance companies. Patricia A.

Smoking Among Cancer Patients A Tricky Problem
New national guidelines are released so doctors can help more patients quit (COLUMBUS, Ohio) March 2015 – Doctors have been urging tobacco users to quit for decades, but it is an addiction so powerful that many are unable to kick the habit even after a cancer diagnosis. “Smoking among cancer patients is a huge issue. In fact, the number of people who have cancer and smoke is actually higher than the general population,” said Dr. Peter Shields, an oncologist at Ohio State’s James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute, and deputy director of The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center. Nationally, it’s estimated that 20 to 30 percent of cancer patients smoke, possibly as many as one in three. “In my practice, among my lung cancer patients, probably 50 percent are active smokers,” said Shields. “We knew we needed to do something about that.” Recently, Shields led a national panel of 25 top oncology experts from National Comprehensive Cancer Network member institutions who developed a new set of guidelines designed to help cancer patients quit smoking. “It’s a much bigger problem than people might imagine,” he said. “Hopefully, this raises awareness and gives doctors and nurses some useful ideas and resources to turn those numbers around.”

Mastectomy Modified Radical Patient Education Medical Videos
http://www.PreOp.com & http://PostCare.com Patient Education Company Your doctor has recommended that you have a modified radical mastectomy. But what does that actually mean? Traditionally, a Radical Mastectomy called for the removal of the breast, surrounding tissue and even the chest muscle below. A Modified Radical Mastectomy is a procedure in which the breast and surrounding tissue are removed, while leaving the chest muscle intact. In most cases, mastectomy is required in order to remove cancerous tissue from the body. The extent of tissue removed is determined by the amount of cancer present in your body. A Modified Radical Mastectomy is one the most extensive forms of breast cancer surgery in that it calls for the complete removal not only of the breast, but of the lymph nodes as well. Lymph nodes are small junctions that join the vessels that make up the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system circulates a bodily fluid called lymph in the same way that the circulatory system carries blood. Your doctor has recommended that you undergo a modified radical mastectomy because the cancer in your breast may have begun to move into the lymph nodes under your arm as well as into your chest muscle. This procedure will permanently change the outward shape and appearance of your chest. So make sure that you ask your doctor to carefully explain the reasons behind this recommendation. Your Procedure: On the day of your operation, you will be asked to put on a surgical gown. You may receive a sedative by mouth and an intravenous line may be put in. You will then be transferred to the operating table. In the operating room, a nurse will begin preparation by clipping or shaving your underarm. The anesthesiologist will begin to administer anesthesia - most probably general anesthesia by injection and inhalation mask. The surgeon will then apply an antiseptic solution to the skin and place a sterile drape around the operative site. Two incisions will be made beginning at the middle of the chest, one along the top and one along the bottom of the breast - coming together just under the arm. The skin is then lifted up and away, revealing the tissue underneath. Beginning at the clavicle - or collar bone - the surgeon then begins to carefully cut the breast tissue away from the muscles that lie just beneath. When the breast has been completely freed, it is lifted away, exposing the top layer of muscle, called the pectoralis major. The surgeon will pull this muscle temporarily aside exposing the next layer of muscle - the pectoralis minor. The surgeon will move this muscle aside, creating a clear view of the surrounding fatty tissue. Within this fat deposit lie lymph nodes lymph vessels, blood vessels and nerves. Using great care not to damage the large thoracic nerve, your doctor will remove the lymph nodes and surrounding fat. Blood vessels will be tied off and your doctor will thoroughly examine the surrounding tissues for any other signs of disease. When the surgical team is satisfied that they have done all that they can to remove the cancer, they will release the muscles and other tissue. One or more drainage tubes will be temporarily inserted at the site while the healing process begins. They will then close the incision. Finally, a sterile bandage is applied.

The relationship between a nurse navigator and their patient is one of the things that makes our Diagnostic Assessment Program so unique. From the moment someone is told they might have cancer, a million and one different things go through their mind -- fear, anxiety, and many, many questions. The nurse navigator is the patient's one point of contact, their liaison with the surgeon and other members of their health care team. Nurse navigators help coordinate care from referral to diagnosis and treatment.

Patient–physician communication with young people with cancer – Video abstract 60916
Video abstract of review paper “New strategies to ensure good patient–physician communication when treating adolescents and young adults with cancer: the proposed model of the Milan Youth Project” published in the journal of Clinical Oncology in Adolescents and Young Adults by Magni et al. Abstract: Adolescence is a particularly complex time of life, entailing physiological, psychological, and social changes that further the individual’s cognitive, emotional, and social growth. Being diagnosed with cancer at this time can have important consequences on an individual’s emotional and physical development, and adolescent and young adult cancer patients have particular medical and psychosocial needs. Patient–physician communications are important in any clinical relationship, but fundamental in the oncological sphere because their quality can affect the patient–physician relationship, the therapeutic alliance, and patient compliance. A major challenge when dealing with adolescent and young adult patients lies in striking the right balance between their need and right to understand their disease, treatment, and prognosis, and the need for them to remain hopeful and to protect their emotional sensitivity. We herein describe the activities of the Youth Project of the Istituto Nazionale Tumori in Milan, Italy in order to share a possible model of interaction with these special patients and the tactics our group has identified to help them communicate and share their thoughts. This model implies not only the involvement of a multidisciplinary team, including psychologists and spirituality experts, but also the constitution of dedicated creative activities to give patients the opportunity to express feelings they would otherwise never feel at ease putting into words. These efforts seek the goal to minimize the potentially traumatic impact of disease on the patient’s psychological well-being. Our group focused also on communication using modern media as vehicles of information, eg, integrating the use of social networks in the involvement of patients in adolescent- and young adult-dedicated activities and uploading informative videos on YouTube.
