Mayo Clinic Radio: Brain Tumors/Rotator Cuff Injury/Fireworks Safety

By Richard Dietman

According to the National Cancer Institute, more than 23,000 new cases of brain cancer were diagnosed in the U.S. last year. Of those, about one-third were gliomas ... a type of brain cancer that's particularly hard to treat. On this week's program, Dr. Robert Jenkins, a pathologist and specialist in laboratory genetics, explains new research that may lead to more effective treatments for gliomas. And scientist Dr. Richard Vile describes how a teenage girl with brain cancer changed the focus of his research. Also on the program, orthopedic surgeon Dr. John Sperling talks about rotator cuff injury ... what it is and how it's repaired. And, the Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that about 240 people go to the emergency room each day during the weeks around the Fourth of July with fireworks-related injuries. Surgeon and trauma specialist Dr. Donald Jenkins discusses the hazards of using fireworks at home.

Myth or Matter-of-Fact: Research shows that of the different types of gliomas, all are genetically the same.
