Esophageal Cancer

Esophageal cancer is not the most known of cancers, but nevertheless it is quite widely spread. After diagnosis, most of the time surgery is applied together with radiation and chemotherapy. There are a lot of official and scientific sources you can rely on, and you can find them on the net. Getting the news that someone close to you has been diagnosed with cancer can be very scary. Not every type of cancer has a definite cause, but there are some types of cancers that develop because of lifestyle factors, like smoking and alcohol use. Esophageal cancer is one of these types of cancer that could possibly be avoided with a few simple healthy choices. However, tobacco and alcohol use aren’t the only risk factors for developing this cancer.

They are not saying that there are not children who have this condition, but they think the label is being slapped on any child that might have speech problems or might be shy. The same thing happened with the attention deficit disorder diagnosis. Read more »

Blood Test Routine

Having a blood test is nothing spectacular and it should be part of your regular check-ups! If you are getting a bit older then it is important to have knowledge about cholesterol levels and so on, and if you’re younger you maybe need a blood test for other conditions. There are many times in your life when you may have to take a blood test, and I hope that these are all happy occasions for you. There are many things they can tell by taking your blood, and you may have to do these for things you never expected. Though most drug testing is done by urine, there may be a time when they have to take your blood to see what is going on. You may have to have one for pregnancy testing, and often a blood test is used as a first means of seeing what is going on when there is something wrong with you. Read more »
