Mayo Clinic Radio: Pancreatic Cancer

Miss the show? Here's the podcast: Mayo Clinic Radio Full Show 11-22-2014 44min mp3

Many of us might not really know where our pancreas is located or what it does, but one thing we DO know is that a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer has a poor prognosis, even when discovered early.  Pancreatic cancer typically spreads rapidly and is seldom detected in its early stages, which is a major reason why it's a leading cause of cancer death.  On the next Mayo Clinic Radio, Saturday, November 22 at 9 a.m. CT, we'll be joined by KMarie Reid Lombardo, M.D., and Gloria Petersen, Ph.D., to discuss signs and symptoms of pancreatic cancer, how it is diagnosed and what the future holds in research.

Myth or Fact: There is a pancreatic cancer screening test available.

Mayo Clinic Radio: Lung Cancer Screening

If you missed the program when it aired, you will find a podcast here.  November 15 2014.

For more information about lung cancer screening call 507-538-0340

Finding lung cancer sooner rather than later can obviously make a big difference in the outcome, and using a CT scan to find the cancer may be the best option.  On the most recent Mayo Clinic Radio our guest was pulmonologist, David Midthun, M.D.  We discussed why lung cancer is so deadly and talk about the importance of diagnosing it early.  We also  talked to a patient who had her lung cancer diagnosed with a CT scan.  November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month. Hope you'll join us.

Myth or Fact: One in 10 people newly diagnosed with lung cancer have never smoked.

Mayo Clinic Radio: ALS Awareness

Miss the show? Here's the podcast: Mayo Clinic Radio Full Show 10-11-2014 44min mp3

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio, Saturday, October 11 at 9 a.m. CT, we'll discuss Aamyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) with Anthony Windebank, M.D. Often called Lou Gehrig's disease, ALS is a type of progressive motor neuron disease that typically strikes at middle to later life and causes nerve cells in the spinal cord, brainstem and brain to gradually break down and die. These nerve cells are responsible for muscle function, so eventually ALS can affect the ability to control the muscles needed to move, speak, eat and breathe. We hope you'll join us to learn more about this debilitating disease and what's happening with the latest in ALS research.

Myth or Fact:  Football players are at greater risk for ALS.

Researchers are helping to develop strategies to combat ALS.  Read more here.
