The Houston resident didn't have to travel far when she came to The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center for her breast cancer treatment. She loved how she was able to meet with her surgeon, oncologist and anesthesiologist in the Nellie B. Connally Breast Center’s Multi Team Clinic all at the same time during her first appointment. Her personalized treatment plan included surgery and radiation.

"I didn't have to make three different appointments to see them," she says. "It was great that they were all on the same page about everything."

Peripheral neuropathy is an unexpected cancer treatment side effect. It’s caused by damage to your peripheral nerves, the nerves that are further away from your brain and spinal cord. Neuropathy symptoms include numbness, tingling, shooting pain or burning, especially in fingers or toes, loss of balance, clumsiness, facial pain, hearing loss, loss of sensitivity to hot and cold, stomach pain and constipation. While every case is different, there are several ways patients can relieve peripheral neuropathy symptoms.

Can herbal supplements help fight cancer? These plant-based products claim to treat a range of chronic conditions, including fatigue, anxiety and depression. Some supplements even claim to improve treatment success for certain cancers. But our experts say beware -- many herbal products may do more harm than good.

FYI -
 
Your statement posted on your webpage "Statement regarding release of data prior to study conclusion" posted at http://www.mdanderson.org/newsroom/news-releases/2014/statement-regarding-release-of-data-prior-to-study-conclusion.html DOES NOT justity that MD Anderson can hold double standards, now read the information below:
 



"Dr Buzdar himself has released Bristol-Myers Phase I ongoing efficacy data for chemotherapy. What interesting is that Dr Buzdar prohibits NWBO from doing so for immunotherapy! Why?
 here is the link to that PR
http://bit.ly/1kU3afF
It IS ASTONISHING THAT Dr BUZDAR AT MD ANDERSON WOULD TALK LIKE THIS. If not for his own agenda, I seriously doubt Dr Buzdar's capability as clinical investigator in MD Anderson.
That this was done in cooperation with AF shows the scale, planning and true nature of this attack. There is not a single sentence that states NWBO's results are falsified. Only that early success could be misconstrued. Is that news to anyone here? Is anything that LP said in her statements untrue? Hell, no!
I am going to take this to CNN, BBC, FOX, Bloomberg and every possible news channel that I can find and get my message across until we hear from MD Anderson rebuking the street.com blog reporter Adam Feuerstein who Dr. Buzdor was very happ to speak with on trial information that he is not even part of. There lies serious conflict of interest.
Its also a shame that not once has the CEO of MD Anderson come out to post or PR anything in this regard. To make matters worse, MD Anderson's admin blocked me from posting on their facebook page. wow!

Linda Ryan, a cervical cancer and thyroid cancer survivor, is often asked how she beat cervical cancer. Linda tells other cancer patients that she found the cervical cancer treatment that was best for her. She chose to travel to The University of Texas MD Anderson in Houston, where she was administered Cisplatin and Alimta through chemotherapy.

Linda also tells others to live during cancer treatment. “I didn’t stop doing things because I had cancer,” she says. “The way I lived and looked at life during my diagnosis was not a conscious decision. It was the only way I knew how to face cancer.”

Kimberly Bowness only used a tanning bed a handful of times in high school, but at age 28, she learned the true price for her short-lived tanning habit: melanoma. After undergoing melanoma treatment at MD Anderson, Kimberly now always uses sunscreen with at least SPF 30 and wears sun-protective clothing. She even stopping getting shellac manicures because the UV lamps used can increase a person's melanoma risk.
 
"Being tan is so pretty, but it's not worth my life," Kimberly says.

The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is focusing on developing new cancer research and clinical trials to better treat acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) as part of our Moon Shots Program, an ambitious and innovative program to significantly reduce deaths from several cancers. We’ve undertaken new immunotherapy research and investigated ways to make stem cell transplants less toxic for leukemia patients.

Thyroid cancer rates are increasing. In the U.S., about 60,000 new thyroid cancer cases were reported in 2013, which includes all types of thyroid cancer: follicular, hurthle cell carcinoma, medullary and anaplastic. Thyroid cancer’s survival rate is 85 percent, but it’s important to get the right type of care, says Naifa Busaidy, M.D., associate professor in Nedocrine Neoplasia and Hormonal Disorders at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. http://bit.ly/1ydE9Gu #thyroidcancer #cancer #endcancer

Weeks after her prophylactic double mastectomy, Erika Archer Lewis was still experiencing pain in her arms and was not able to fully extend them. After visiting with a physical therapist, she received a lymphedema diagnosis. Lymphedema, a common cancer treatment side effect, is a collection of protein-rich lymphatic fluid that causes swelling and feeds infection.

While there’s no cure for lymphedema, physical therapy, exercise, dietary changes and lifestyle modifications can help manage lymphedema symptoms.

More than 2 million Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer this year, but many of those cases could be prevented by protecting their skin from sun exposure.
 
Cancer survivors should take extra precaution when it comes to sun safety, says Jeffery E. Gershenwald, M.D., professor in Surgical Oncology and co-leader of the Melanoma Moon Shot at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.

When Sabrina Dominguez first read “The Fault in Our Stars,” she had no idea how much she would come to understand the book’s characters. At age 16, Sabrina received a medulloblastoma diagnosis. Throughout her medulloblastoma treatment, Sabrina turned to the book each time she started to have doubts.   
 
“I’ve related to every single diseased teenager in the book,” she says.

Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause skin damage and even melanoma. But there are many ways you can help your kids protect themselves and prevent them from getting skin cancer. Wearing sunscreen, a hat and UV protection clothes can all help children lower their melanoma risks.
