"In the phase of the disease, correct, yes. So when you look at stage four patients specifically in that group, younger patients despite getting more treatment, do not seem to be doing better than older patients. Can you give us some quantities here? I mean, how common is it for someone under 50 right now to get early onsite coal cancer? It is important to note that the vast majority of colorectal cancers are still happening in older individuals and the strongest risk is still occurring in people who are older. But in the latest statistics from the American Cancer Society, about 13% of all colorectal cancers will now be diagnosed in people under the age of 50. And about 7% of all colorectal cancer deaths will occur in young people. And this is significantly higher than statistics from a couple of decades ago. And what's the incidence? Do you know? It's about almost 20,000 new cases of colorectal cancer in people under the age of 50 are expected for 2023 and almost 3800 deaths will be occurring in young people. We're talking about the U.S. here where else has this been seen to be on the rise. We are seeing extremely similar trends in Western countries and those who have national screening programs where people who are being screened over the age of 50, the incidence and mortality of colorectal cancer is steadily declining, much like the U.S., but in people under the age of 50, there has been a steady rise in young asset colorectal cancer. And actually, this is being seen around the globe even in countries that are of lower socioeconomic status who are now seeing westernization of lifestyles. We are now also starting to see a rise in young asset colorectal cancer in those countries. So in addition to figuring out what's happening, what the causes are, how to treat it. Is there also a possibility of moving, screening, to a younger age? Yes, we do think that earlier age of screening will significantly help to prevent young asset colorectal cancer as well as detect cancers earlier in young people. And actually in the United States, the United States preventive services task force recently did lower their recommendations from age 50 down to 45. This will have a significant impact because about 40% of all young asset colorectal cancers do happen in that age range. But this is not helping the 20 year olds and 30 year olds that we are increasingly seeing in clinic with colorectal cancer. So further work needs to be done to understand the underlying biology and risk factors so we can identify them for earlier screening. All right. Thank you so much, Kimmy.

"colon cancer" Discussed on Science Magazine Podcast
"There has been a concerning rise in early onset colon cancer cases. Here in the U.S. and in some other very rich countries, Kimi Aang and colleagues wrote a commentary piece this weekend science about how this early onset colon cancer is different from what is seen with late onset and more about what we need to learn on diet, environment and genetics to better understand and treat this early onset colon cancer. Hi, Kimmy. How are you? Thank you for having me. Thank you so much for coming. One thing I want to get out of the way first is how are we defining early onset colon cancer? So early onset colon cancer is defined as a colon or rectal cancer diagnosis that occurs at an age younger than 50. And that is predominantly because historically the screening age where people at average risk of colorectal cancer starts at age 50. Is there any chance that it's because people are just opting into being screened or trying to get more information about their bodies and we're just seeing an increase in screening at these younger ages? So that is a great question and that is something that has been looked into. And unfortunately, that is actually not the explanation for the rise in colorectal cancer cases in young people. If it were purely as screening effect, you would expect that most of the cases diagnosed in young people would be of early stage because the ones detected by screening are generally the ones that are caught before symptoms start or when they're earlier stages, but in fact what we're seeing is the opposite, the cancers that are being diagnosed in people under age 50 are for the most part of advanced stage disease. Are there any other differences between the what we see in people who have this early onset versus late onset? There are several differences that are pretty noticeable. One is that most of the cancer is diagnosed in people under the age of 50, tend to occur on the left side of the colon or in the rectum. This is distinct from cases that occur in older individuals. We also see that many of them are more poorly differentiated than those that are being diagnosed in older people and again, the advanced stage, a diagnosis is one of the largest distinct differences that we see between younger patients and older patients. This left right difference is that relate to the way the colon functions. I mean, what are some possible suggestions for what that might be going on? So we actually don't know right now why it is that left sided cancers and rectal cancers are the majority of young asset colorectal cancer cases. We do know that the right side of the colon and the left side of the colon are extremely different. They have distinct embryological origins. They have different functions. And we also know that the gut microbiota differ according to the location in the colon. That's so interesting. Yeah, we also know that somatic mutations are also different between the different sides of the colon, including responses to treatment and prognosis. And so we still need to do a lot of work to better understand why it is that left side of cancers in particular are rising. Now, you said something about the difference in differentiation between the left and right sided cancers, can you talk a little bit more about what that means in terms of cancer? So poorly differentiated cancers are traditionally more aggressive in behavior. And unfortunately, many studies do report that those types of cancers are being seen more commonly in young patients as opposed to older patients. We should put this in the context that overall colon cancer incidents and death is decreasing, for example, in the U.S.. But even with that going on, we're still seeing an increase in these cancers in young people. Yes, and I really think it's the successes of screening programs and improved treatments over time that have led to declines in incidence and mortality in individuals who are older and who are being screened for colorectal cancer. But even those improvements are starting to slow down a bit largely because of this opposing rise in colorectal cancer in young people. Do we know anything about the causes of these cancers being different? So colorectal cancer is probably the one cancer that is most strongly linked to diet and lifestyle. And we do know that several diet and lifestyle factors that are known to be associated with a higher risk of colorectal cancer no matter what age you are, do seem to be rising over the past few decades that seem to have parallel the rise in young asset colorectal cancer with the one factor that has been most looked at being obesity. Certainly obesity rates have been rising and we do find in some prospective cohort studies that we've done that people who do report higher rates of obesity do seem to have a higher risk of developing colon cancer at an age under 50. What about environmental risk? So each cohort each generation is exposed to different things in their home and the environment in the foods that they eat. Is there some understanding of how that might be playing in here? Absolutely. The effect of the rise in young asset colorectal cancer very much follows what we call a birth cohort effect. It is something that is affecting generation by generation where the people born in 1990 have significantly higher rates of developing colorectal cancer compared to individuals born in 1950. And we do think it's environmental exposures. What exactly we don't know. Again, we've looked at obesity. We've also looked at sedentary behavior, higher consumption of sugar sweet and beverages, lower vitamin D levels. And they all do seem to be associated with a higher risk, but I don't think that that is all that explains what is happening. All these things are rising at the same time. It's going to be hard to pick it out. What kinds of studies do you think would help better understand the causality here? Yes, colorectal cancer is an extremely complex disease with many interrelated factors that are likely interacting with each other and contributing together towards this phenomenon that we are seeing. And so what I do think we need are large prospective cohorts that have comprehensive collection of not just survival and treatment and clinical pathologic data, but also validated diet and lifestyle information, information on early life exposures because we do think that many of these environmental exposures are probably acting over a long period of time to then subsequently influence the risk of developing this disease in young adulthood. We also need comprehensive collection of bio specimens. So we need tumor samples. We need blood samples. We need stool samples to look at the microbiome because we do think that many of these environmental exposures that may be contributing to this rise in young asset colorectal cancer may perhaps be affecting our microbiome or our immune systems that may be leading to this rise in cancers in younger people. So comprehensive collection of bio specimens with integrated clinical and diet lifestyle data are really necessary to help us figure out what the causes of this are. What about treatment for this? Is the early onset cancer responsive to the same treatments as the late onset. So currently I don't think we know enough about what the biology is. That's different about younger onset colorectal cancer compared to older onset to lead to any differences in treatment. We have found some preliminary differences in somatic genomic alterations between younger patients and older patients, but many of those go away when you adjust for the sightedness of the primary tumor. So right now, younger patients are treated similarly to older patients, but what we do know is that even though younger patients have better performance status at baseline, so better health overall and they have fewer side effects to treatment and receive more treatment, their survival is not correspondingly longer or better than an older onset patient. And that's even if you control for when it was caught when it was detected

"But it's not there yet. That's great. So are there other archives like this where the data has been sitting around on CD roms or even older types of recordings and now they're being placed in repositories that people can access and investigate? It's been there. It's not like it just appeared. It's been available. It's just no one was being paid to do this or had proposed to do this. And I don't know if anyone would have funded them to do this if they had proposed to do it. This was kind of done on Robbie's free time. The researcher, there are always kind of, especially with, this is a technique that would be hard

"From March 17th, 2023, I'm Sarah krusty. First up this week and active volcano on Venus. Staff writer Paul lusen joins us to discuss finding a fresh lava flow in 30 year old data. Next up, a commentary on a concerning increase in early onset colon cancer. Researcher Kimi Aang is here to talk about how these early colon cancers, those diagnosed before age 50, are different from late onset colon cancers, and we also talk about what needs to be learned about diet, environment, and genetics to better understand this condition. Now we have Paul vosen. He's a staff writer for our news team. We're going to talk about volcanos on Venus, hi, Paul. Hello. So this is a cool finding for two reasons at minimum. First of all, the way they found out this information and of course volcanos always cool. There's no mission at Venus right now and as far as I can tell, telescopes can't see the surface. So why are we just hearing about volcanic activity now in 2023 when it's been a long time since anybody's visited? Some telescopes can see the surface. Oh, really? Radio telescopes like arecibo could, but very, very coarsely. So right. Very difficult to detect changes over time. But yeah, so this is data from the Magellan mission that NASA sent to Venus departed earth in the 80s, got there in the late 80s and then mapped the planet with radar for a couple of years before going kaput. But hidden in this data that used to be only accessible on compressed on CD roms was a sign of volcanic activity that people just didn't see before. So like 30 years ago, Magellan took several passes over the planet. In the data, we have kind of like a very limited time series that takes sketchy before and after photos of certain points on the surface. What made researchers decide to look at these images at this point? Researcher told me it's really tedious to do this. Back in the days of Magellan, people were paid to try and search through this, but they're doing this on the 90s era technology and it was just impossible for an individual to kind of flip back and forth. But we have these new missions coming up to Venus, including two NASA missions, and so one of the people working on it. Robert herrick B goes by Robbie, thought, oh, you know, we're hoping with this much better radar to detect volcanic activity that we didn't see before. Why not just go look through all that all data again and just manually flip between these kind of three cycles of images and see if anything looks different. Right. Magellan mission went around the surface three times, but not everything was photographed or image three times. But they found pairs or triplets and said, well, you know, are we seeing any differences between the first time the image was taken and the second time it was taken. But even that it sounds complicated, but it's actually more complicated because the spacecraft wasn't always circling and exactly the same path. Yeah, that's right. It was on this near polar orbit, so it was kind of inclined just a few degrees that meant when it was going down over the South Pole. You need to be looking to the right to see it otherwise because to the left is just like space. Hello space. And for the second pass, the first pass was like their biggest mapping. The second pass, they look the other way. The third pass only got like 20% of the plant, those back left looking. So when you have these two bigger passes, you're trying to look at things from the exact opposite angle. And they're not a lot of things in life that look exactly the same from one side versus the other. To see in a change is even harder. So these images are not taken from the same angle, and they're taken about 8 months apart. How are they able to see a change? The guy behind this, Robbie, who was, he was aided by a large number of Zoom calls during the pandemic where he was just kind of doing the systematic search flipping back and forth. And he was just able to see this a circular vent, so a circle, very simple shape, about two kilometers wide. And the other image and it kind of had deformed more of an oval four kilometers wide. Even then, you might be like, oh, you know, it's just because of the change in angle or whatever, but a circle is such a simple thing that you can model what it should look like knowing the kind of angle of the other one. And it just looks drastically different than what they actually saw. So that's kind of a pretty clear indicator. And this is in the area with Venus's tallest volcanos that we knew there were volcanos there, right? But just if they were doing anything or not, or if there are 500 million years old. Right. And so he targeted his search. After all this, he had always searched 1.5% of the planet's surface. Well, some people out there can help out if you want to go to download this data. So he's not going to do it more, so. It's wide open. He targeted places where there were volcanos, and this place where they saw a change was a volcano. Is it surprising that they're active at this point? It's surprising and it's not surprising. For some researchers, it's been surprising that they haven't seen it, or they were just convinced that with better data they will. We'll see it. There are reasons to think Venus should have volcanic activity. It's kind of the same size as earth. It probably didn't lose its heat a lot faster. Same place in the solar system, roughly, and then there have been hints kind of, especially in the past little over a decade of things that point out at possible volcanic activity like changes in sulfur in the atmosphere or anomalous little hotspots seen by a European orbiter that visited a decade ago. But nothing was really kind of not clear with your own eyes and could be kind of pooh poohed away. Does it change anything about the kinds of research people want to do at Venus or what people will be looking for in the future missions? They'll certainly be coming back to this spot where they'll be fairly certain they'll see kind of fresh gorgeous lavas. One researcher put it to me and then once you have infer things about that lava, you can kind of study things about older lava and that's also a gateway to the interior of the planet, right? Yeah. It also, you know, it just kind of helps when people are thinking, are there tectonics of some kind, not plate tectonics, but the thing like pack ice or around these possible hotspots. I mean, it just kind of helps further support the notion that this type of stuff is probably going or not all of it is necessarily going on. But there's activity. Just that you're able to see this big change and 8 month span, right? There aren't a lot of volcanos like that making big changes like that in the 8 months spin on earth, right? So this is an indicator that the activity level could be somewhat similar to earth, hard to say with just one. But yeah. Just give us a big indication that Venus is alive. Yeah. And so that means the surface is changing. It might be different than the last visit in other places as well. Are they going to be using the same kind of imagery techniques in an upcoming missions that are going out and what in the 2030s? Yeah, so they should be arriving in kind of early 2030s, I believe. They'll be using a much more advanced radar. So the stuff that's probably what's happening during Magellan was just invisible with the kind of resolution the radar will be playing to see. And then one of the missions will also be sending not a lander kind of a probe that will plunge through the atmosphere and get down to the surface. And where will then crap out shortly because Venus destroys all things. I was going to say, is it going to just fizzle out as soon as it gets close to the surface? It's going to collect very dear data and people are working on high temperature electronics for the venous surface and we had a feature on that 5 years ago,

"The American Cancer Society shows colorectal cancer cases. Among those younger than 55 increased from 11% in 1995 to 20% in 2019, joining us on the kogo news live line, doctor Andrew storm from the Mayo Clinic. Good morning, doctor. Hey, good morning, guys. Thanks for having me. Absolutely. So first of all, why do you think this is happening? Because that's almost double. Yeah, it's interesting. This is march, which is colorectal cancer awareness month. And usually we're talking about how we need to talk about getting all of our friends and family who are over the age 50 to their screening exam. And now over the past couple of years, we've seen that recommendation change to move younger. So now the recommendation is 45 to 50. And that's really in response to what we've seen over the past 5 to ten years is that the younger population is actually developing colorectal cancer faster at an alarming rate, much faster than the older population. Historically, colon cancer was mostly caused by tobacco smoking and as that has dropped off in the United States to some extent. We actually see overall a little bit less colon cancer, but what's concerning is, again, that younger population is getting colorectal cancer. And that's something we need to pay attention to. And we're talking about men and women, right? That's right. So both men and women and unfortunately, we see that it's often in an advanced stage. So early detection is especially important for those younger among us. So again, starting at age 45, fortunately, the Affordable Care Act required both private insurers and Medicare to cover the cost of colorectal cancer screening. So it's something that anyone with healthcare insurance should be able to get done at their local hospital. So what are some of the symptoms to watch for if you think you might have an issue? Yeah, I always tell my patients that Mayo, hey, if you see blood mixing with the stool, if you're having a change in your bowel habits, those are things that are of concern. Abdominal pain to some extent. That's the reason to be seen by a doctor, but it's usually something that happens when we're going to the bathroom. Okay. And you know what, for a lot of people, a lot of people do not want to do a colonoscopy, or if they've done one, they don't want to do it again. Here's the question that so many people ask, and there's really no good answer. Why isn't there an easier way to do a colonoscopy? Yeah, and that's something we're working on. There are lots of different options for screening. So one innovation that came out of Mayo Clinic specifically was the Cologuard test. So that was developed by researchers here at Mayo. And that's a test you can actually send in a stool sample. They can tell you if you have a risk for developing colon cancer, or maybe if you have an early colon cancer. So if that test is positive, then you'd have to come to that colonoscopy. That said, colonoscopy is my favorite screening test because it allows us both to find problems, but then also to remove them. So it's really it's a treatment as well as a diagnosis. There are other test stool tests and other procedures like a CT or virtual colonoscopy. It's a colonography really, which allows us to find polyps. Again, anything abnormal about any of those tests means that you'd have to come for the colonoscopy. So that's really the guaranteed one and done test. You know, you mentioned smoking, which I never thought about smoking linked to colon cancer. I never really did think about that. Is it now, is it diet? Is it environment? I mean, because fewer people are smoking. What do you see as the cause of this? Yeah, our current understanding is that in older adults, it's probably tobacco smoking, some environmental exposures, obesity is actually probably a common risk factor for colon cancer in adults. But in this younger population, we're not really sure. Is it something that we're exposed to more often, maybe changes in the bacteria that live in our colon, healthy, normal bacteria changed by using antibiotics when we were younger, that's something we're still working on. Is it good to take a probiotic like a line or something like that? We don't know for certain that that makes a difference. Some of my patients tell me, hey, that really helps me. I feel better when I'm taking something like that. It's not a part of my current recommendations, but I think more to be determined there as well. All right, doctor Andrew storm from the Mayo Clinic. Hey, thank you, doctor for your time. Very interesting. Thank you so much. Ted Garcia. Man has always dreamed of time travel before you go to bed tonight, prepare your adventure into the future.

"Two 15. I'm Sean Anderson. And I'm Shana stillen, thank you for being with us. Colon cancer is increasingly being found in younger people in a new report from the American Cancer Society now shows that one in 5 people being diagnosed are younger than 55 and the cases are being detected at more advanced stages. However, if found early, many times it can be treated. One of our colleagues here at WTO was diagnosed when he was only 36 years old. Well, heck, I know the exact dates. November 9th, it was the Thursday, 2006. That was when WTO producer Mike Jakarta found out after a colonoscopy that he had stage one colon cancer. His symptoms were blood in his stool and fatigue. He admitted at first with the symptoms he thought. Me being the typical guy. Man, I'm not going to go to the doctor and just work out harder, but his wife made him go to the doctor, and it was discovered and treated. He's among those under 55 to get the illness. He encourages you to get your screenings. And get a colonoscopy. I mean, if you're at the age, just do it. Doctor Joseph Jennings, a gastroenterologist with med star health says during colonoscopies, polyps that can turn into cancer can be spotted early. And if we find them then and we take them out, not only do you not have colon cancer is great, we actually stop those polyps from ever having the chance to turn into colon cancer. For Jakarta's now almost 17 years cancer free. I feel like I've been given a second shot and I'm really lucky. Mike Murillo WTO news.

"Why. No one's making the argument to create a new age for testing or a younger age for testing because at large that would just be so expensive and the value wouldn't necessarily be there. But doctors are saying, for those who are between 45 and 55, especially, they should really be taking the warning seriously and getting timely colon cancer screening and people who are younger should be aware of the risk factors if they have some sort of a symptom. They should go and talk to their doctor just because we do know this is a risk. Throughout the country, medical licensing officials are doing all they can to keep nurses with fake credentials from caring for patients as CBS News correspondent mount piper reports this morning that comes apparently after several schools in Florida were accused of selling nearly 8000 fake nursing diplomas.

It comes following operation nightingale what the feds say was a wire fraud scheme in which people paid about $15,000 to get bogus nursing diplomas through last year. The Delaware board of nursing annulled 26 licenses in New York nearly a thousand nurses have been told to surrender their licenses or prove they got them legitimately.

"Of us are being diagnosed at younger ages and with more advanced cases of colorectal rectal cancer. I should say that more of us are being diagnosed with this disease than before. It comes from new research tonight and joining us live Tina Reed, healthcare editor for axios. Welcome back Tina. This is a commonly diagnosed type of cancer anyway. Tell us about the new study and what it shows about young people in particular. The new study found that people who are 55 and younger are increasingly likely to become to be diagnosed with. Colorectal cancer and to be diagnosed in advanced stages, now it should be noted that there's still less likely than an adult who's older than that, but doctors can't really explain why we're actually seeing this increase among the younger patients. Which makes it so alarming. Yes, absolutely. And I didn't mean to interrupt you there. So we don't know the why just yet. Is there enough knowledge to begin a new age to start getting colonoscopies and other testing to make sure we catch this early? So no one's making the argument to create a new age for testing or younger age for testing because at large that would just be so expensive and the value when necessarily be there. But doctors are saying, for those who are between 45 and 55, especially, they should really be taking the warning seriously and getting timely colon cancer screening, and people who are younger should be aware of the risk factors if they have some sort of a symptom. They should go and talk to their doctor. Just because we do know this is a risk. So even though in some cases and we're not saying it's all the cases, you could be as young as say 35 and get this diagnosis. No one is saying that we need to start colonoscopies that early in life. Correct. We just need to get better at doing the screening for the people who are appropriate. At a time when many people are living longer despite having all types of cancer, do the researchers say we are losing too many people to colorectal cancer. This is one of the largest or most common causes of cancer death into the third most common in the U.S. and that's really concerning one piece one bright spot in this news is that the actual overall numbers of people in older ages who are dying from colon cancer are actually decreasing, but the problem is that we're seeing this increase among younger people, which is counterbalancing that number. Just in the few seconds we have left a bottom line final thought we have here from this new research. The bottom line is to take it seriously, those who are 45 and older should get regular screening, those who have symptoms, even if you're younger than 45, go to a doctor. Okay, Tina, thank you very much. Have a good rest of your week. Thank you. Tina Reid, live on WTO healthcare editor for axios, the news tonight, more of us are being diagnosed at younger ages with more advanced cases of colorectal cancer and doctors are warning that too many people are dying from this unnecessarily.

"colon cancer" Discussed on Local Vibes
"There's probably a ton. Probably the most especially a long time ago before it was normal was that we were just at home in our underwear, doing nothing. Which our family thinks that still so we still do that, but that's what most people thought. There's a lot of work. The worst thing about it, well, let me go back. The best thing about it is that we're at home all the time and we never have to clock into anybody. The worst thing is we're at home all the time and we never get to clock out. Right. Day and night, weekends, vacations. We're still tied to these laptops. We're trying desperately. That's probably, if anybody knows me personally, I just get over, I guess I'm still going through battling colon cancer. I'm in remission, which is wonderful. I think everything's taken care of. But where was I going with that? I don't know. Just out of the blue. That's the way things happened. And her diagnosis was one day she was fine the next day she was in the hospital and that's the way it worked and we had to change. We were able to be at home and change our focus and actually it made us more focused, more focused than ever. So that's kind of gotten us motivated to do this podcast again because this is our second try. Well, I think, and I don't know why I got off on that already. Maybe I looked at the wrong thing, but I guess another myth about life was Angie. Whatever. Another myth, I would say, in our job is that people think that we're trying to take advantage of them. All the time, businesses all the time. And don't get me wrong, there are a lot of marketing agencies that do that and take advantage. So that's been hard to overcome that. An entrepreneur and Internet marketer and 90% of them now are not even from this country and people still give them money all the time. It's definitely sullied the name of Internet marketing, but we try to get around that and lead with our results and help people and do go above and beyond. That's why we created a course. To help you. What are some of the challenges that we faced when we first started? Finding clients always been the challenge. To this day, it's the hardest part. When we first started, there was this is a story that I always tell the kids and they really can't even fathom it. Most people can't fathom it. When we first started doing website design, which that was the first service that we offered, the only search engine that was around was Yahoo. That was it. Google wasn't even thought at that time. But in order to get your website on a search engine on Yahoo, you had to actually physically go to the category that you wanted to be in. If it was there, if not, I think you could create it or suggest it or something. It wasn't even really a search engine. It was a directory. And you just went to that page and it said suggest a site at the bottom. So you'd suggest a site and literally an hour field. There was maybe, I think, one other person, maybe Liz in grahamville was listed. There was nothing and I mean, that, that was, that was weird. So then it would take like three to 5 days, something like that for you to get indexed and I want to be there. So that was a challenge. That was a challenge, but definitely finding getting businesses to decide that this was something that they needed to do. They thought it was a fad. I actually had a dealer, it was called Indian mountain Pontiac at that time, Pontiac Mazda. Doesn't exist anymore. Doesn't exist, but I spent two, two, full years. Going after that dealer. Yeah, I did in the beginning. I tried to get them as a client for two years. Finally, got them to give me a chance. And the whole time, the guy that ran, what do they call them? Owner. Owner. He kept saying, oh, this is just a bad, it's never going to stay.

The Dangers of Sugar and Children
"We all know that sugar isn't good for us but really let's take a deep dive into why we really need to limit it in our kids diets. Oh absolutely well. I think you know.

So this woman, young woman 53 years old, and she's a nurse, and she has a beautiful daughter had a change in her stool and a change in other symptoms bleeding. And she never had Kona Skippy and then finally should colonoscopy, which showed a rectal cancer. It was a rectal cancer with suspicion of lymph node. She had a cat scan and an M R. I both suspicious for Live, not involvement. She got cancer markers and Cancer markers are often helpful when they're elevated. Now, What are the cancer markers? Usually for colon, erectile cancers, wealth, See, Eat A and she had a C E A. But it was Too low to be meaningful. So in her case, the cancer marker to the help do guide she never got a pet scan. She went to one of the big hospitals. They want to do surgery and a colostomy and she just ran away. She just did not want to have a colostomy and you could understand that she's a Woman 53.
Dr Fata: Seeing Yellow | 4
"Patty hester was helping a patient at work in the emergency room on the morning of august. Sixth two thousand thirteen. It was busy morning. Her colleague came in the room with a patient and tapped patty on the shoulder. Come here right now come here. I'm rock with her towards break room i to have time what she said. Patti catch your doctor. Patty walked into the break room and stared at the tv quote. We are michigan. Hematology oncology here in rochester hills. Were fbi agents are executing our search warrant. My sources are also telling me that a doctor has been arrested on charges related to healthcare fraud s fbi helicopters. They swarmed in on this morning. And i'm looking at this news. It has named goes across then. Then i have my cell phone in my pocket. and it's like this. you can feel it vibrating. All my dad from that point on her cell phone wouldn't stop buzzing all day. One call was from the fbi. You'll be getting your chart than the news. Said we'd like to interview you. Patty went home. Her husband was in front of the tv. Federal agents say in court records that doctor for allegedly kept patients on chemotherapy. Longer than necessary to cash in on the billings agents allege for da also directed that patients be diagnosed with cancer in their medical charts. Even when they did not have the disease patty wondered. Was she one of them. She didn't have to wait long to find out the next day a dark. Suv with tinted windows. Pulled into the driveway. An agent stepped out of the car and patty opened the door. Her whole family behind her. He said i'm very sorry and handed me my chart in the disk. I just sir cry. My family sobbing sobbing. It was horrific. She put the disk into her computer and began to scroll through. It was just lie after lie after lie. The also gave her a list of oncologist that she could see to get a second opinion. Ten days later patty saw a new doctor for the first time she brought with her. The disc at the fbi had given her. After the dr ransome tests she came into patties exam room hugging. And i am so sorry and saw sorry. You don't have it you don't have a patty began to cry. Her doctor said that she wasn't yet sure what had made her sick in the first place but she was sure that patti didn't have cancer. You need to live your life. You need to live your life. You not gonna die. I said if you do anything for me could you just please write it down town. She's forty where you want me to write it. And so she whipped out a prescription pad. And that's when she wrote a tricia has has no evidence and diaz in the weeks that followed other fatah patients or their loved ones sought their medical records. Saint joseph mercy. Oakland hospital filled these requests free of charge but crittenden had a different policy in some cases. The hospital asked for more than a thousand dollars to fill. The requests fought. Victims protested outside the hospital eventually crittenden relented and waive the fees but the victims and their families still needed someone who knew the technical lingo to look over the records. That's what i did for my fun. Time in the evenings nurse angeles won tek. I would go through the patient's medical records in a way. I feel like for me anytime. Somebody reached out to me. I said yes i didn't. I felt that that was something that i could do. And maybe you know. Help with the guilt of i should have done more. I wish i could have done more. One of those requests came from michelle mannarino. Her mother joan had died in two thousand ten six months. After angela's visit fatah had treated joan for breast cancer but when they met at a hotel in a banquet room angela had some news from michelle. And i remember looking at her records and the chemotherapy and i remember one thing that struck me was one of chemotherapy. Drugs that she was given is typically given for colon cancer. And i thought with this is odd like why would you give this for a breast cancer diagnosis.

Tasmanian Devils May Overcome Transmissible Cancer That Nearly Wiped Them Out
"You might have heard of the plight of the tasmanian devil. These carnivorous marsupials have been afflicted with a transmissible facial tumor a cancer that jumps from one devil to another when they bite each other in the face not as uncommon as you might think and as a result their populations have gone into steep decline despite these extreme population losses. The devils have been holding on and may even be turning a corner andrew store for and colleagues wrote about this potential turnaround in this week science. Hi andrew hi. Let's start with the downfall of the devils. This facial tumor disease. Dft when did arise and what has been. It's trend in it. Spread among the tasmanian devils. The devil facial tumor disease according to our new study originated. Probably in the late. Nineteen eighty s. It was actually discovered in the mid nineteen ninety s in far northeastern. Tasmania where people started discovering devils with large facial lesions that seem to grow. Initially that wasn't much of a concern because they've seen these types of lesions new places back since the nineteen seventies however when animals started dying in large numbers. People really started paying attention that this was some sort of transmissible disease shortly thereafter. A genetic study was done that showed that these lesions were actually a clone oil transmissible cancer. They were genetically close to identical so since its discovery the disease has actually swept across tasmania and sort of an east to west us. Fred and is now just reached. Some of the last uninfected populations on the west coast has media. Cancer is different from pathogens like bacteria or viruses. How's that affected our ability to understand the transmission of this disease in tasmanian devil. One of the big challenges has been its large genome size so studying. The genome of a virus is fairly straightforward because viruses like sars he'll be to only about eighteen to twenty eight thousand base pairs long. However the tasmanian devil genome is three point two billion bases about the size of the human genome so trying to track. The spread of the disease is much more challenging. In terms of computational power and genomic sequencing methods which weren't really available at the scale they are now when the disease was discovered. So in the study that we're talking about today. You apply to technique that has mainly in the past been used for viruses. What did you have to do differently to get this to work for transmissible cancer. We did complete genome sequencing of fifty one tumors than that being in our final analysis finding parts of the genome that are measurably evolving that is evolving at a regular rate or what we would call them. Killer clock is pretty challenging and in the end we screened about eleven thousand genes which took several months on the computer and found twenty that were measurably evolving clock like fashion. And the reason you want to do that is then you can look at how these or changing over time as the disease has spread and this allows you to estimate epidemiological parameters like the transmission rate and the proportion of the population. That gets infected overtime. So this is how you figured out that it came out in the eighties right. The disease likely originated in the eighties which is consistent with its discovery in the bid nineties because when a disease like this i started taking off. In a wildlife population it might be at fairly low prevalence and so people don't really notice it until it really takes off and our epidemiological parameter which is called our savvy which is equivalent to the transmission rate started to peak in our analysis just before the discovery which makes sense because the disease was rapidly increasing or exponentially increasing in the population. Let's talk a little bit about that transmission rate. That's something that you know using this analysis you're able to show it changed over time. Can you describe that trajectory we identify tumor lineages and in wanted around the mid nineteen ninety s in the other it peaked around two thousand and the really encouraging results of the study showed that in both major tumor lineages that seemed to be across. Tasmania now that the transmission rate declined to just about one at present and this indicates that the disease has reached some sort of stable state that is for every devil that's infected only one additional devil is infected and thus the main conclusion of the paper which is the disease is transitioning from an epidemic state in which it's exponentially moving across populations to an end state where it's just kind of at replacement is the kind of analysis you did hear able to tell you what has changed. Is something different about the tumor. Cells are the devils different. What's going on. We did find some mutations that seem to explain variation in transmission rates among the different tumor lineages and these are related to other types of cancer however these are candidates for downstream discovery at this point so they serve as good hypotheses for future research. And what's different about the devils. We have some other studies that show that also the devils seemed to be evolving in response to cancer. We see changes in the devil genome. That are also seem to be associated with possibly disease resistance. We've also seen spontaneous tumor regression in an increasing number of devils wild populations and we show that that might be related to regulatory changes in the in the devil so perhaps some jeans are up or down regulated in response to the tumor and we also found a mutation in the tumor. That seems to cause the tumor to shrink so a mutation actually when turning on a gene and this gene is implicated in human prostate and colon. Cancer the tumor growth actually slows in laboratory studies when we transact wild type tumors. Don't have this gene with the. Does this suggest that the disease will go away or that. It will coexist peacefully with tasmanian. Devils people really thought that tasmanian devils or on their way to extinction. I think this provides us cautious optimism about the future of the tasmanian devil. This transmissible cancer which is nearly one hundred percent lethal has caused a dramatic decline of this species of process. Entire range has me so they are certainly not out of the woods yet. However because this disease is socially transmitted early models predicted disease extinction because even if you have low densities of individuals the disease can still be transmitted because devils congregate and bite one another. Which is the way. The disease is transmitted for purposes of mayday or scavenging food however a growing number of studies from our group has shown through ecological modeling for example devils are predicted to persist on most scenarios. Some of those involve lower population densities than where they were initially but yet the devils will persist and in the subset of those cases. The tumor will also persist and we may see sort of endemic dynamics where there's populations like this study adds to the growing number of studies that the disease itself also seems to be evolving perhaps lower transmission rate because there may be evolutionary pressure on disease to be less lethal to the devils. Are people trying to figure out how to preserve the devils and will that strategy change with this understanding of the switch from epidemic too endemic. We certainly hope that our new study will help. Influence hearth rations strategy so when devil started declining there was captive breeding to maximize genetic variability in captive populations which are maintained in wildlife parks and some zoos and actually an island offshore from tasmania album. Riot island. where there's a free roaming population of not quite captive devils but devils were introduced there. These were referred to as captive insurance operations with the intent that if devils went extinct on the mainland they could be reintroduced or if devil population sizes or inbreeding reached really high levels. They could perhaps be introduced using a technique called genetic rescued increase genetic diversity in the wild populations

"This is dr. Michael wilks with a second opinion for several weeks drew appointments to see me and then canceled them at the very last minute when he finally showed up. He was concerned about a rash on his lower legs. I diagnosed flea bites. But he just didn't look good. I asked him all sorts of general questions about his health and he kept saying he was fine but given his age and his smoking history. I ordered a long. Cat scan and tests for colon cancer. Even though he'd had one just four years ago the student who was working with me asked why was ordering those tests. When i'm usually so careful about not over ordering tests. She reminded me that. I always make her. Tell me why she is ordering every test. She wants to order on every patient. But all i could offer her was. I had a gut feeling. She told me that. I didn't seem like a gut feeling sort of doctor. And all i could say was that something. Just doesn't seem right. She asked me what i saw. And i really couldn't identify any one thing. It wasn't something he said. Perhaps it was a subconscious summing up of his words or actions are nonverbal behaviors regardless we moved on to the next patient clinicians gut feelings while not scientific or evidence based need to be acknowledged as a component of clinical decision making perhaps spike gut feeling. I meant it was a intuition or a suspicion or an instinct or even a clinical impression. I realized that gut feelings are very subjective and are prone to my bias. So i usually try to focus on objective findings when i went to fill out the request for this et scan. I wasn't even sure what to put in the blank. Where it said reason four-test i could imagine the radiologist laughing at me. If i wrote. I just have a gut feeling. A recent study looked at research on gut feelings related to cancer diagnoses. The study found that clinicians had difficulty specifying what their guts were saying. However win the gut feelings were present. Clinicians generally acted on them either through referrals or through a careful. Workup of seventeen thousand patients included in the study. The odds of a cancer diagnosis were four times higher. When the doctor had had a gut feeling than when they did not gut feelings were more accurate with older physicians and were more accurate. The better the doctor knew the patient it turns out that often these gut feelings were even more predictive than a combination of described symptoms. One week later drew. Cat scan came back showing lung cancer. The student was impressed. But i didn't pat myself on the back rather as a researcher. I've been trying to figure out what it was that gave me that gut feeling.
Start screenings for colorectal cancer at age 45, panel advises
"On colon cancer screenings announced on Tuesday after a panel of health experts suggesting people should start getting screened earlier than previously recommended. CBS News chief medical correspondent Dr Jon Lapook specialist gastroenterology got more colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer related deaths in the United States. Getting screamed at age 45 rather than 50 could be especially important for people who are black because colon cancer tends to occur earlier and be more aggressive in this group.
Health panel proposes colon cancer tests start at 45, not 50
"A panel of health experts wants US adults to start getting colon cancer screenings five years earlier than previously recommended at 45, instead of age 50 at this point, only a draft guideline from the US present of Services Task force. It reflects concern about rising colon cancer rates and people under age 50. What is the overall rate has been declining.
