At the start of a new year, many people reflect on the previous year and think about what they want to accomplish in the year to come. Having good health should always be on the list of things to accomplish in the New Year. Many people want to lose weight or start eating healthier. For those who are at risk for cancer, there’s no better time like the present to take action towards preventing cancer disease in 2017. Here are a few ways you can help prevent cancer in 2017, and start living a healthier life in the process.

Ways to Prevent Cancer in 2017

Stop using Tobacco

Smoking is one of the most common causes of various types of cancer. Smoking tobacco can lead to lung cancer, mouth cancer, kidney cancer, pancreas cancer and others. Chewing tobaccos is linked to multiple oral cancers and pancreatic cancer. Even if you don’t use tobacco yourself, second-hand smoke can still increase your risk of cancer. Try to make 2017 a tobacco-free year by eliminating any tobacco habits and choosing smoke-free environments to visit. Go to iquitfor.com to learn how you can make the pledge to quit smoking today!

Eat healthy

Eating healthy foods leads to natural cancer prevention. Developing new healthy eating habits, such as eating fresh fruits and vegetables, and keeping your cupboard stocked with cancer prevention foods is a good way to kick off 2017 right. Learn what foods to buy to keep your kitchen stocked with healthy, cancer-fighting foods. Then, see these cancer-fighting foods and start eating healthier today. Finally, follow these basic healthy living guidelines:

  • Eat lots of fruits and veggies
  • Do not overeat
  • If you drink, drink in moderation
  • Avoid processed foods and meats

Move around

Limit the amount of time you spend sitting every day. Growing evidence suggests that the amount of time spent sitting is linked to increased likelihood of developing cancer. Instead, try to add an exercise routine to your day. Studies also suggest that regular exercise can reduce a woman’s risk of breast cancer by 18 percent. Of course, preventing cancer isn’t the only reason you should take up exercise in 2017. Learn more about the importance of exercise here.

Get routine medical care

Getting routine medical care, including annual check ups and cancer prevention screenings, can help you identify your cancer risk and help prevent cancer-related deaths. Because early detection saves lives, people should be getting regular cancer prevention screenings to detect problems before they develop. Make 2017 your year to start getting those regular cancer screenings and seeing a medical professional for a regular check-up at least once a year.

January is a great time to create new habits to prevent cancer in 2017. Set your body up for good health and your likelihood of cancer development will decrease during the year.

Raise Awareness during Cervical Cancer Awareness Month

January is cervical cancer awareness month. The beginning of the year is the time to raise awareness for this type of cancer and get screened if you haven’t already done so.

Cervical cancer is one of the most common and preventable forms of cancer in America. Cervical cancer death rates of decreased significantly over the last 20 years due to the increased use of advanced cancer screening tests, like Pap smears and vaccinations.

How to Get Involved in Cervical Cancer Awareness

The first and most important way to get involved in cervical cancer awareness is promoting the use of Pap smears and getting this cancer screening done annually if you are a woman.

Cervical cancer can still be a deadly disease for those who do not have access to regular cancer screenings. Whether due to lack of education or lack of available resources, it’s important we take this month and all year to raise awareness about the dangers of cervical cancer and how to prevent it.

Women diagnosed with cervical cancer do not have to face this battle alone. Services offered through cancer.org and Comprehensive Cancer Centers of Nevada can help assist any woman in need of cervical cancer treatment.

Another way you can get involved in raising awareness of Cervical Cancer Awareness Month is with the use of social media. Use the following hashtags to join the conversation online and spread the word about cervical cancer awareness:

  • #CervicalHealthMonth
  • #CervicalScreening
  • #CervicalCancerAwareness
  • #CervicalCancerAwarenessMonth
  • #cervicalcancer
  • #SmearonDemand
  • #smearforsmear
  • #cervicalcancerprevention
  • #cervicalcancerpreventionweek
  • #smeartest

If you have not gotten cancer screening with a Pap smear in the last 12 months, January is the perfect time to get screened and help raise awareness for other women to receive screenings, too.

Comprehensive Cancer Centers of Nevada has over 35 years of experience treating a variety of common and rare cancers. Our specialists include breast surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists and more. Our cancer treatment services include chemotherapy, hematology, breast surgery, radiosurgery, and medical oncology, all of which can assist the diagnosis and treatment of gynecological cancers such as cervical cancer.

Traveling with Cancer during the Holidays

The holiday season is traditionally a time when families and friends get together to celebrate. This may require extensive traveling across city and state lines to visit loved ones. Traveling around the holidays can be difficult. Traveling with cancer during the holidays can bring new challenges and obstacles. If you are diagnosed with cancer and are planning on traveling this holiday season, follow these tips to prepare.

Travel Tips for Cancer Patients during the Holiday Season

Talk to Your Doctor

Before securing your travel plans, our number one piece of advice is to talk to your doctor about the best way to travel this holiday season. For some cancer patients currently undergoing certain types of cancer treatment, your oncologist may advise against flying. They will have other recommendations for you as well and may suggest ways to avoid feeling sick or fatigues during travel.  

Avoid International Flights

Avoiding long flights alone is a good reason to steer clear of international travel. For cancer patients, staying in one seat for a long period of time can cause pain and potentially blood clots. Limited access to emergency help in case of a medical emergency is another reason to avoid international flights. It is best to stay in a country in which you can easily access medical care in your native language when fighting cancer this holiday season.

Discuss Vaccinations

If you are planning on going overseas for an international flight over the holiday season, ensure that all your vaccinations are current. Talk to your doctor first to make sure there will be no complications with getting a certain vaccination during cancer treatment.

Travel with Medication

Before leaving for holiday travels, it is important to plan out how much medication you will need ahead of time for your cancer treatment and side-effects. Talk to your doctor about prescribing the appropriate amount of medication to take during travel time. If you are taking morphine based drugs and are planning on flying, you may need to make special arrangements with the airline, including a letter from your doctor. Take a copy of your prescriptions just incase your medication goes missing or is stolen, so you can get them replaced if need be.

Clear Your Oxygen Supplies

If you are planning to fly this holiday season and you need to use an oxygen supply, talk to the airline about what special arrangements will need to be taken beforehand. Many airlines allow in-flight oxygen but will require a letter from your doctor and at least 48 hour notice.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is a must for anyone with cancer or another serious medical condition. Hospital stays in other places can become expensive, and it’s best to be safe than sorry. Afterall, that is why we get insurance.

Plan Ahead

Plan your trip weeks or even months in advance if you can. Take the time to talk to your oncologist about traveling with your type of cancer and include the following on your travel checklist:

  • Enough medications
  • Travel insurance
  • Arrange oxygen supply (if necessary)
  • Documentation, including necessary medical records and prescriptions
  • Starch crackers or energy bars to help boost energy and prevent nausea
  • Sunscreen
  • Hand sanitizer and tissue to prevent catching germs
  • Water

Whether you are traveling across the country this holiday season or across the county, it is always important to plan ahead. Cancer patients must be specially prepared to take care of themselves during travel time.

At Comprehensive Cancer Centers of Nevada, we want to ensure all local and traveling cancer patients stay safe and healthy this holiday season. Contact us on our website at www.cccnevada.com to learn more about how to travel with your type of cancer this holiday season.

Cancer and Genetics

A cancer diagnosis can have many causes, some known and some unknown. One possible way to develop cancer is due to family history, or genetics. Ever hear of the theory: nature versus nurture? The two factors at odds here are genetics and environment. For many, a cancer diagnosis can be traced back to factors in their genes, their environment, or both. To help prevent cancer, one can change environmental factors such as quitting smoking or changing their eating habits. But it’s not possible to change our genes. So how important are genes to the diagnosis of cancer and what percentage of cancer is genetic?

What’s the Connection between Cancer and Genetics?

Genetics, the field of science that examines how parents pass down traits to their children, includes looking at pieces of DNA, called genes, to determine traits such as eye color, height, and even medical diseases like cancer. Genetics has evolved in the past few years, giving us a better understanding of the development of cancer and how certain inherited changes in genes can lead to the development of cancer.

The good news is cancer inherited through genetics represents only a small portion of all cancer diagnoses. However, certain types of cancer mutations do seem to run in some families. For the most part, cancer tends to start because of the random gene mutation that may happen during the course of living. Many of these gene mutations happen because of external factors like smoking or radiation. Sometimes, these gene mutations occur at random with no clear cause as to what happened in a particular cell.

Genetic testing is available and recommended for people who tend to have certain types of cancer run in their family’s bloodline. There are hundreds of different types of genetic tests used today, and they can be useful for determining many different medical conditions. But genetic testing for cancer is not always recommended, especially if you do not have a family history of certain types of cancer.

Keep in mind that many of these cancer types on this cancer genes list can also occur without inherited gene mutation. Genetic testing is not a one-all solution. Should you get genetic testing for cancer risk? If you have one or more of the following, you should consider getting a genetic test for cancer.

When to Get Genetic Testing for Cancer

  • Long history of relatives on one side of the family diagnosed with the same cancer type
  • First-degree relatives (mom, sister, brother, father) diagnosed with cancer
  • First-degree relatives with cancer linked to rare hereditary cancer syndrome
  • A family member with more than one type of cancer
  • A family member with a rare type of cancer
  • A family member who was diagnosed with cancer at a younger age than is typical for that type of cancer
  • Medical finding of evidence of an inherited cancer
  • A known genetic mutation in at least one other family member
  • Cancer in your family is linked to one family member who had more than one type of the following cancers: breast, ovarian, pancreatic  

Genetic testing for cancer screening is not for everyone. Even when it’s used, keep in mind that the information the screening result will provide is limited. Genetic testing does not give precise answers. It only states if you have a particular mutation of the gene. In other words, the test won’t say that you will get cancer. It simply produces the likelihood that it might happen. A positive result does not always lead to cancer, and a negative result does not mean you are immune from developing the disease.

Learn more about your family’s connection between cancer and genetics by taking Comprehensive Cancer Center’s Hereditary Cancer Quiz. Comprehensive Cancer Centers of Nevada, an affiliate of The US Oncology Network, is an award-winning oncology group. We want to help cancer patients and their families to be aware of their family history and understand their risk for developing cancer due to genetics. Take our cancer quiz to learn if you may be at risk for developing cancer and a genetic test will be recommended.  To make an appointment, call 702-952-3350.

Once seasoning is done sitting, pour ⅓ of the mixture under the skin on each side of the breast. Then coat the inside of the breast with the rest of the mixture. Finally rub your hands over the remainder of the skin, giving it a light mixture coating. Seal the turkey breast in a plastic wrap and let it marinate in the refrigerator for 4 hours.
  4. After the turkey is done marinating, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Ensure a rack is in your roasting pan and unwrap turkey to set on the counter.

Roast the turkey, turning the pan over every 20 minutes to ensure even cooking until the thermometer reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit. If the skin darkens too quickly, place a foil tent over the breast.
