Pediatric cancer / rheumatic diseases / medical marijuana: Mayo Clinic Radio

A cancer diagnosis is upsetting at any age but even more so when the patient is a child. According to the National Institutes of Health, it’s estimated that more than 10,000 new cases of pediatric cancer will be diagnosed among children in the U.S. this year. Worldwide, that number reaches 250,000. Although pediatric cancer death rates have declined by nearly 70 percent over the past four decades, cancer remains the leading cause of death from disease among children. September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and on the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, pediatric hematologist/oncologist Dr. Carola Arndt will discuss the importance of research and clinical trials to improve pediatric cancer treatments. Also on the program, September is the first ever Rheumatic Disease Awareness Month. Rheumatologist Dr. Eric Matteson will explain diagnosis and treatment options for rheumatic diseases. And we will learn how medical marijuana is being used to treat disease symptoms and pain from addiction specialist Dr. Jon Ebbert.

Here's the Mayo Clinic Radio podcast.

Varicose veins / antidepressants and sexual dysfunction / hypothyroidism: Mayo Clinic Radio

Varicose veins — those gnarled, enlarged veins — usually show up in your legs and feet, because standing and walking upright increases the pressure in the veins of your lower body. For many people, varicose veins and spider veins — a common, mild variation of varicose veins — are simply a cosmetic concern. For other people, varicose veins can cause aching pain and discomfort, and sometimes lead to more serious problems. On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, vascular surgeon Dr. Peter Gloviczki explains how treatment options for varicose veins have improved. He also shares his own personal story of how magic helped him become a doctor. Also on the program, women's sexual health expert Dr. Jordan Rullo will share the findings of a recent study on the connection among women, antidepressants and sexual dysfunction. And, endocrinologist Dr. Hossein Gharib will talk about diagnosis and treatment of hypothyroidism.
