If you’re a current smoker, a former smoker who has quit in the past 15 years or between the ages of 55 to 74, you should be receiving a spiral CT lung cancer screening on an annual basis. The scan is performed in under a minute, but can assist in early diagnosis, a key to the successful treatment of lung cancer.  

Read more about spiral CT lung cancer screening from Myrna Godoy, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor of Diagnostic Radiology at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, and Jeremy Erasmus, M.D., professor of Diagnostic Radiology at MD Anderson: #smoking #cancer #lungcancer #caprev #lcsm #endcancer 
Lung cancer screening is helping MD Anderson catch more cases of lung cancer early. That’s when it’s easiest to treat.

If cancer runs in your family, you may have considered genetic testing. By simply having your blood dawn, doctors are able to determine if you’re facing a higher risk for certain types of cancer like breast cancer, colorectal cancer, ovarian cancer, prostate cancer and endometrial cancer -- all of while are associated with family history.

When Lisa Nieto was diagnosed with stage IV inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) in December 2011, her local doctors gave her a 1% chance for remission. 

Having lost her mother to cancer, Lisa knew she had to seek treatment somewhere that was dedicated to its patients and had a leading reputation. She chose The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, whose Morgan Welch Inflammatory Breast Cancer Research Program and Clinic specializes in treating IBC.

After undergoing a clinical trial at MD Anderson, Lisa was declared cancer-free in April 2013. Read her story here: #bcsm #breastcancer #breastcancerawareness #inflammatorybreastcancer #ibc #endcancer

Ronnie Pace didn't realize men could get breast cancer until he received his own male breast cancer diagnosis.

When doctors found the malignant tumor in his right breast, Ronnie decided to come to The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center for male breast cancer treatment. At MD Anderson, Ronnie received a mastectomy and DNA testing.

Looking back, Ronnie knows he's lucky that his male breast cancer was found early. That's why he's committed to raising male breast cancer awareness and providing support for other male breast cancer patients.

The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center has been ranked the nation’s top hospital for cancer care, according to U.S. News & World Report’s annual “Best Hospitals” survey. MD Anderson has ranked as one of the nation’s top two hospitals for cancer centers care every year since the survey began in 1990.

Two MD Anderson subspecialties also were ranked highly in this year’s survey. In the Ear, Nose and Throat specialty, MD Anderson’s Head and Neck Surgery service was ranked No. 5. In Gynecology, MD Anderson’s Gynecologic Oncology and Reproductive Medicine service came in at No. 7. Notably, these specialty rankings include care provided at general hospitals across the nation, not just cancer centers. The survey also named MD Anderson as “high performing” in Urology, meeting the survey’s standards for excellence.

“We’re honored by this tremendous national recognition, but the true measure of our success is the number of lives we’ve impacted with our care, research and support,” said Ronald A. DePinho, M.D., president of MD Anderson. “We owe our gratitude to the more than 20,000 cancer fighters, including world-class faculty and nurses, and 1,000-plus volunteers working every day to end cancer for our patients and others around the world. Our culture of exceptional care and genuine caring is second to none.”

Cooking methods like barbecuing and pan-frying, which result in smoke and charring on meat, have been shown to increase a person’s risk of developing kidney cancer, according to a new study from researchers at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. 

“This new study encourages us to look not only at what foods we're eating, but also how we're preparing those foods," says Stephanie Melkonian, Ph.D., epidemiology postdoctoral fellow and lead author of the study.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recently announced that processed meats like bacon, ham, hot dogs, sausages and deli meats raise the risk of colorectal cancer. 

Like tobacco use or sun exposure, these types of meat are carcinogens, or something that causes cancer.

In 2012, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center launched its Moon Shots Program. This unprecedented effort to more rapidly convert cancer research and scientific breakthroughs into life-saving changes initially focused on triple-negative breast cancer, high-grade serous ovarian cancer, myelodysplastic syndrome, acute myeloid leukemia, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, lung cancer, melanoma, and prostate cancer.  Yesterday, MD Anderson President Ronald DePinho, M.D., announced that six more cancer types are being added to the initiative – b-cell lymphoma, glioblastoma (brain cancer), cancers associated with the human papillomavirus (HPV), high-risk multiple myeloma, colorectal and pancreatic cancers.

Stem cell transplants are commonly used to treat patients with leukemia, multiple myeloma and other blood cancers. 

Bone marrow, which makes the blood cells we need to live, is often destroyed by disease, chemotherapy or radiation. After the bone marrow and its cells have been damaged, stem cells may be used to replace diseased cells with healthy ones. This transplant enables doctors to use much higher doses of chemo in an effort to kill all of the cancer cells.

In this podcast, Richard Champlin, M.D., chair of Stem Cell Transplantation at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, explains what stem cells are and how a stem cell transplant can help patients with leukemia, multiple myeloma and other blood cancers.

Common cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy, can make some cancer patients infertile. But cancer doesn’t have to prevent patients from becoming parents. 

Cancer patients at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center cancer receive oncofertility counseling to learn about infertility and options for preserving their fertility so they can have kids after cancer.

Controlling your portion sizes is a great first step in establishing a healthy diet. A healthy diet can help you control your weight and reduce your cancer risk. 

“Being mindful of the number of servings on your plate leads to smarter food choices,” says Bonnie Nelson, health education specialist in The University of Texas MD Anderson’s Cancer Prevention Center.  “Take time to think about and adjust your food portions for better health.”
