Peyronie’s disease linked to increased cancer risk, possible genetic link

New research presented at the American Society for Reproductive Cancer Scientific Congress and published in Fertility & Sterility found that men with Peyronie’s disease had an increased risk for developing cancer. Peyronie’s disease, also known as penile fibrosis, is a disorder where fibrous scar tissue forms in the connective tissue in the penis causing the penis to curve. It can cause painful erections and erectile dysfunction. “Men with PD [Peyronie’s disease] have an increased risk of developing cancer, suggesting a possible common etiology between PD and cancer development, supporting recent genetic findings,” said the study authors. In the large retrospective ... Read More

Alberta bans minors from artificial tanning in melanoma prevention effort

In an attempt to lower rising melanoma rates and protect the health of its citizens, Alberta Health Services has instituted and will be enforcing new regulations that ban minors from using artificial tanning services. “Research has shown that using artificial tanning when you are under 35 dramatically increases your risk for melanoma,” Health Minister Sarah Hoffman says according to The South Peace News. “The changes we’re making will help protect our youth from a disease that affects hundreds of Albertans every year and gives Albertans better information about the risks of artificial tanning.” The new rule takes effect on Jan. 1, ...

Melanoma breakthroughs, origins and mechanism of tumor development

Cornell University researchers recently published in Cell Stem Cell findings about melanoma development and a potential way to prevent certain melanomas. “Melanoma is one of the deadliest cancers, yet the cells of origin and mechanisms of tumor initiation remain unclear. The majority of melanomas emerge from clear skin without a precursor lesion, but it is unknown whether these melanomas can arise from melanocyte stem cells (MCSCs),” said the study authors. Using mouse models, they established how after melanocyte stem cells surpass a threshold of genetic mutations caused by UV radiation, when stimulated again by UVB, they become melanoma cells of ...

Melanoma advocate starts line of sun-protective clothing for athletes

One young Florida entrepreneur is making a big difference not only by offering practical products for a group of underserved consumers who needed sun protection, but she’s also creating a network of melanoma advocates, raising awareness about the disease and its prevention.

Melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer, is steadily on the rise. In fact there has been a 2,000 percent increase in incidences since 1930. Early detection and prevention are ... Read More

Australian doctors get new guidelines for melanoma diagnosis

ABC News warned its Australian audience that Cancer Council Australia has expanded its melanoma diagnosis guidelines for doctors. The well-known ABCD method, checking asymmetry, border, colour and diameter, potentially leaves room for melanomas to be missed. The new guidelines include an EFG assessment, asking doctors to pay attention to elevation, firmness and growth. “Change is the hallmark of cancer, and it’s the hallmark of melanoma,” said Joanne Aitken, the head of research at Cancer Council Queensland. “So things that are changing are things that people should be having checked.” One skin cancer doctor who was interviewed for the story recently ...

Teens write software that detects melanoma in early stages

Two teens from Hyderabad have developed a software with the ability to detect malignant melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer, in its early stages, according to Telangana Today. “We tried to come up with simple solutions by utilising readily available tools and help people who are left behind by expensive technical medicine. We hope that the program will be helpful in medical camps that are conducted in rural areas where people cannot go to big hospitals to get the tests done,” said Siddharth Mandala, one of the two 17-year-olds who worked on this project. Praneet Shah, the other ... Read More

Are golfers doing enough to protect themselves from skin cancer?

An Irish study found that although golfers are aware of skin cancer risks they aren’t protecting themselves as well as they should. According to Irish Health, the study included 163 golfers from the Munster region, almost all of whom reported golfing at least once a week. The golfers’ average age was 65, and 84 percent of those surveyed were male. Although 70 percent of those surveyed said that they checked their skin regularly, nearly half of them (40 percent) admitted that if they noticed a new mole they would not visit a general practitioner, but rather ignore it or ask ...
