#MedicalTipMonday: The symptoms of head and neck cancers may include a lump or a sore that does not heal, a sore throat that does not go away, difficulty in swallowing, and a change or hoarseness in the voice. These symptoms may also be caused by other, less serious conditions, so it’s important to check with a doctor or dentist about any of these symptoms. #HeadandNeckCancerAwareness

#MedicalTipMonday - The esophagus is a hollow, muscular tube that connects the throat to the stomach. It lies behind the windpipe and in front of the spine. Cancers that start in the esophagus are much more common in men than in women. Many of these cancers are often linked to tobacco or alcohol use, or to excess body weight.  #EsphagealCancerAwarenessMonth

Our thoughts are with Lauren Hill’s family today. The college basketball player made headlines last November when she played in a Division III game, despite having an inoperable brain tumor. She also helped raise over $1.5 million for cancer research earlier this year. Lauren was truly an inspiration to us all! ‪#‎LaurenHill‬
Lauren Hill died at the age of 19 one year after being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. She gained fame and support as she played basketball for Mount St. Joseph's and raised money to fight cancer.

#MedicalTipMonday: Reflected sunlight can burn you, too. Make sure to apply sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to areas hit by bouncing rays. Don’t forget your hands, feet, ears and back of the neck. #SkinCancerAwarenessMonth  http://www.cccnevada.com/patient-resources/cancer-overview/types-of-cancer/skin-cancer

#MedicalTipMonday - Cancer recurrence is defined as the return of cancer after treatment. The same cancer may come back where it first started or somewhere else in the body. The odds of this happening depend on many factors, including the type of cancer. Learn more about #cancerrecurrence and living with this possibility from @AmericanCancerSociety:

#MedicalTipMonday : Doctors use many tests to diagnose cancer and find out if it has spread to another part of the body. An ultrasound is often the first test done if the doctor thinks you might have testicular cancer. If you are having any symptoms of #testicularcancer, talk to your doctor about your concerns. 
ON THIS PAGE: You will find out more about body changes and other things that can signal a problem that may need medical care. To see other pages, use the menu on the side of your screen. Men with testicular cancer may experience a variety of symptoms or signs. Sometimes, men with testicular cancer do not show any of these symptoms. In addition, these symptoms can be caused by another condition that is not cancer.
