    DermTV – Skin Cancer Statistics [DermTV.com Epi #203]

    [music] Hello, I’m Dr. Neal Schultz [pause] and welcome to DermTV. As we approach the end of May, National Skin Cancer Awareness Month, there’s one more very important point I’d like to make about skin cancer. Melanoma is the only preventable cancer for which the mortality rate continues to increase. In the 30-year period, from 1975 to 2005 the death rate for melanoma has increased a dramatic forty-percent. It’s gone from 225 deaths per million Americans to 310 deaths per million Americans. What does that translate to you? Well in the year 2010 with 300 million Americans that means this year 9,000 Americans will die from melanoma or one approximately…

    How Mosquitoes Use Six Needles to Suck Your Blood | Deep Look

    This is the deadliest animal in the world. Mosquitoes kill hundreds of thousands of people each year… the most vulnerable people: children, pregnant women… No other bite kills more humans… or makes more of us sick. So what makes a mosquito’s bite so effective? For starters, they’re motivated. Only females bite us. They need blood to make eggs… And a pool of water for their babies to hatch in. Even a piece of trash can hold enough. At first glance, it looks simple — this mosquito digging her proboscis into us. But the tools she’s using here are sophisticated. First, a protective sheath retracts – see it bending back? If…

    How to Make Steamed Food with Parchment | Parents

    There’s a method of French Cooking called En Papillote. And basically, that’s just a fancy way of saying cooking in parchment paper. And today, I’m going to show you how to do it. Start with a rectangle of parchment about this size. So start by folding the parchment in half. Make a nice crease and then we’re gonna cut out a big heart. The reason we cut a heart is because it’s easier to seal later than a rectangle. Make sure that the heart is big enough to hold all of your ingredients. Unfold the heart and you’re going to put your ingredients on one side. So today, I’m gonna…

    Scripps Health: Skin Cancer Types and Treatments

    – Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the world that we see today. In this country, we see 3,000,000 cases per year, the most dangerous being melanoma, where we see over 100,000 cases per year. The three main types of skin cancer are basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. The survival rates of skin cancer are actually very good. For a basal cell carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma, it should be 98 plus percent or even higher. For melanoma, we’re fortunate that it’s at least 90 percent, including the aggressive melanomas. The key to skin cancer is, again, early diagnosis, just like it is…

    How a Herpes Strain May Fight Skin Cancer

    I’m Rachelle Grossman with today’s health news. When you think of “herpes,” the virus doesn’t usually bring up positive thoughts. But new research is finding a way that genetically engineered herpes may actually fight melanoma. You see, researchers used a genetically engineered strain of the herpes simplex type 1 virus – which is known for causing cold sores – and injected it into some patients with melanoma, a serious form of skin cancer. The injection is called T-VEC. After six months, about 16-percent of these patients showed a significant positive response to the treatment. Only 2-percent of the traditional treatment group saw this positive response. The T-VEC patients also lived…

    Other Cancers After Skin Cancer

    Skin cancer history may be associated with an increased risk of future malignancies. I’m Erin White and this is a dailyRx Minute. White individuals with a history of non-melanoma skin cancer had a somewhat higher risk of developing other cancers. Men who had been diagnosed with basal or squamous cell skin cancer had an 11 percent higher risk of developing new cancers while women survivors had a 20 percent increased risk compared to people who had never had these skin cancers. Ask your doctor how to reduce your cancer risk. For dailyRx TV, I’m Erin White.

    What is the skin microbiome?

    – Cheeks, eyes, inside of our nose, around our mouth, behind our ears, our armpits, underneath our fingernails, you name it. So think about your skin. It’s not just the same all over, right? We have oily sites like our face, our scalp, our torso. We have dry skin like our hands, our forearms. And then we have moist skin like our feet and our armpits. And correspondingly what we found is that our skin’s microbiome, which are the trillions of bacteria, fungi, and viruses that live on our skin, and really actually all over our bodies, is different based on these different skin properties. And so why is this…
