Why should I have a mammogram?
Lauren Zenisek, PA-C, from UnityPoint Clinic Corridor Family Medicine talks about the importance of having a mammogram. Bullet points: • What is a mammogram? o A mammogram is an X-ray picture of the breast. Doctors use a mammogram to look for early signs of breast cancer. Mammograms can be used to check for breast cancer in women who have no signs or symptoms of the disease. This type of mammogram is called a screening mammogram. The images make it possible to detect tumors that cannot be felt. Mammograms can also be used to check for breast cancer after a lump or other sign or symptom of the disease has been found. • How do they work? o During a mammogram, a woman’s breasts are compressed between two firm surfaces to spread out the breast tissue. Then an X-ray captures black-and-white images of your breasts that are displayed on a computer screen and examined by a doctor who looks for signs of cancer. • Who should get a mammogram? o When it comes to breast health, early detection is the best prevention. Women should have regular mammograms beginning at age 40, or sooner if you have a family history. UnityPoint Health hospitals use state-of-the-art technology, including digital mammography, to screen for and diagnose breast health issues. Digital mammography is the newest technology available for early breast cancer detection and has many benefits, including higher detection rates in some patients, fewer recalls and lower doses of radiation. • Why should I have a mammogram? o According to the American Cancer Society - every year over 200,000 American women are diagnosed with breast cancer. They can save your life. Finding breast cancer early reduces your risk of dying from the disease. Combining mammography with clinical breast exam may improve its ability to find cancer. • What if the doctor “finds something?” o An abnormal mammogram does not necessarily mean that a cancer is present, Other tests, including biopsy, may be performed for further clarification of an abnormal mammogram. Learn more about how a mammogram may benefit you by visiting unitypoint.org.
Cedar Point Sets Two World Records
Cedar Point is known for breaking records with their sky scraping roller coasters, but yesterday, two different kinds of records were broken by guests at the park.Cedar Point sets Guinness World Record for most people bouncing beach balls at the same time. Representatives from Guinness World Record were on hand as park guests succeeded in setting two new world records in beach ball bouncing and sunscreen application. First, 401 guests were able to bounce beach balls for 10 seconds to establish a world record for the most people bouncing beach balls at the same time, a new category for the famous world record keepers. After establishing the beach ball record, the sun was shining and temperatures were around 80 degrees as 681 guests put on sunscreen at the same time, breaking the record set over a month ago in Ostend, Belgium, on June 25. The two events were certified by an official adjudicator for Guinness World Records, Philip Robertson. "Guinness world records is one of those institutions that everyone wants to take part in," Robertson said. "It's fun, entertaining, ordinary people doing extraordinary types of things."The events took place around 9:30 a.m. yesterday morning. Participants in the two record attempts were able to purchase discounted tickets, and portions of those ticket sales will be given to the American Cancer Society, according to Robin Innes, director of public relations for Cedar Point. "Cedar Point is well-known for record-breaking coasters. Now, our guests can help us set other records at the park," Innes said prior to the events. "Plus, the money goes for a good cause, the American Cancer Society. So, it's a win-win for everybody."

What are the benefits of 3D Mammograms
Dr. Arnold Honick, UnityPoint Health - St. Luke's Breast and Bone medical director talks about 3D mammograms in this educational video. • What is a mammogram and when should women get one? A mammogram is an x-ray exam of the breast that is used to detect and evaluate breast changes. The American Cancer society recommends: Annual mammograms for women starting at age 40. • What is a 3D mammography (digital breast tomosynthesis) exam? 3D mammography is much like your annual mammogram but far more accurate in earlier breast cancer detection. 3D works by capturing multiple slices (images) of your breast from several angles. Then, a computer produces a 3D image of your breast tissue in one millimeter slices. Radiologists can review the data, one slice at a time, like turning pages in a book, making it easier for them to see if there is anything to be concerned about. • What are the benefits of 3D mammography? With conventional digital mammography, the radiologist is viewing all of the overlapped tissues of the breast in one flat 2D image. This can, in some instances, give the illusion of an abnormality even though the breast is normal, and can also mask an actual tumor due to superimposed breast structures. • By looking at the breast tissue in one millimeter slices, the radiologist can provide a more accurate assessment. 3D mammography provides a 25 percent improvement in overall cancer detection rates, finding 40 percent more invasive cancers than conventional mammography. It also means there is less chance of you being called back for a "second look" mammogram because of overlapped normal structures. The "false positive" rates are reduced by up to 40 percent. • What should I expect during the 3D mammography exam? 3D mammography complements the standard 2D exam and is performed at the same time, with the same system. There is no additional compression required and it only takes a few seconds longer for each view. • Who can have a 3D mammography exam? It is approved for all women who would be undergoing a standard mammogram, for both screening and diagnostic exams.

Video about diagnosing and treating testicular cancer
The irony of his cancer diagnosis is not lost on Tim Martinek. He's an avid bicycle rider and his love of cycling sparked his interest in following Lance Armstrong's career through the years. And like Armstrong, Martinek is a testicular cancer survivor. Martinek initially shrugged off his testicular cancer symptoms." "I kinda wrote it off to maybe it was something - i had been training for the JDRF ride to cure diabetes and i had been doing quite a bit of bike riding, " said Martinick. A visit the urologist confirmed his testicular cancer diagnosis. "The most common sign is a painful or hard lump the patient can feel," said Dr. Tom Richardson, Physicians' Clinic of Iowa, urology. Testicular cancer is most commonly diagnosed in men between the ages of 15 and 35. When found early it's highly curable. "I recommend a child be taught by his father or father-figure in his life how to perform a self-exam once a month," said Dr. Richardson. Today he is cancer-free. "Don't mess around with your health if you find something suspicious -- see your doctor -- it may be nothing or it might be something you're better getting treated sooner rather than later," said Martinek.

Picture Perfect: Iowa in the 1940s
During the late 1930s and early 40s, Everett Kuntz snapped hundreds of photos documenting everyday life in and around his hometown of Ridgeway, Iowa. But it wasn't until learning he had cancer in 2002 that Kuntz finally printed the photos. Immediately, he noticed how the images preserved a time thought to be lost forever...a time when America was still emerging from the Great Depression and rapidly approaching World War II. Yet the photos depict a sense of hope in the people of Ridgeway -- an innocence that epitomized the calm before the storm. Kuntz's photographs show the faces, fields and porches of small-town America, and serve as a historical record of both a bygone era and a rural Iowa that has all but disappeared.

Should Iowa Legalize Medical Marijuana?
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA - (CBS2/FOX28) Twenty states have already passed medical marijuana laws and 13 more including Iowa are considering whether to legalize pot for treating everything from cancer pain to epileptic seizures. While the days of "Reefer Madness" and other misinformation impacting public opinion are mostly gone, the debate over legalizing medical marijuana is as passionate as ever. On a warm afternoon in the Newbo Neighborhood, reporter Matt Hammill asked for your thoughts. Doug says he just returned from a trip to Colorado and the combination of relief and revenue make it a win, win, " They're getting 16 and a half percent tax on it so they're making money on it so why not .. it's a pain killer too and it has all kinds of good attributes ." While most say they would never follow the mile-high areas recreational use of pot, they do believe there's enough evidence for Iowa lawmakers to revisit the medical possibilities. Delane says Iowa should have made the move a long time ago, " I think there's a lot of people that could benefit from it as long as it's restricted in the right way. " On Facebook, Dustin writes, " Clearly helping people, clearly good tax revenue, what's the hold up? " Beverly posts, " I would rather have medical marijuana than be loaded down with the super addictive pain pills such as Oxycontin and Hydrocodone." But Joanne says, "Give an inch and they will take a mile, because of that I say no." Jeff writes, " I don't want someone under the influence working near me any more than I want someone who's been drinking before work ." And Jennifer posts, " No, no, no .. It's a mind-altering drug. Iowa has enough issues with laziness and obesity .. why on Earth would you want to enhance that. " But back in Newbo, Erin says she has been on the front lines of trying to help the patients who might see benefits from medical marijuana. She works in pediatrics and says it's time to at least look at the options offered by marijuana, " I definitely think there are some advantages. I've had kiddos come in who have infantile seizures and the suffering that happens every minute .. every seconds .. all the seizures they have to go through and the developmental disadvantages because of it. They're heartbreaking and the success that can happen for a child and their family and the ability to have some calm and quality of life .. I think it's worth considering . " This issue has really touched a nerve with more than 100 comments on our Facebook Page. We invite you to join in the debate by clicking the icon at the bottom of this page.

An American Hymn Requiem in Memory of Marci Gilchrist
An American Hymn Requiem was composed by Kelly Hale, DMA. Here he conducts the Ann Arbor First United Methodist Church Chancel Choir, Ann Marie Koukios, Director of Music. Singing in the choir is vibrant Marci Sue Gilchrist, a friend of Ann Marie, Kelly.and the entire church family, who unexpectedly passed away from this life. This youtube version was prepared from a 2012 recording at FUMC. It is in remembrance of Marci. May her memory be eternal. Marci Sue Gilchrist (7/3/1954 - 5/21/2016) passed away peacefully surrounded by her family following a courageous battle with lung cancer. A loving wife, mother, daughter, and sibling, Marci was a true blessing to all those she encountered. A former teacher, she spent her life devoted to others. In 1977 she married Brian Gilchrist, and the union of 39 years would produce two sons, Thomas and Patrick. Marci "retired" from teaching in 1988 to raise her children, and promptly became more busy shuttling kids between hockey practices, music lessons, and youth group activities. She took up leadership positions in whatever she was was apart of, organizing book fairs, running the neighborhood association, helping out the hockey team, and working with the youth group. For many around her, Marci was the go-to person because of her heart, her organization, and her intelligence. Marci had a beautiful voice, and sang soprano in the First United Methodist Church--Ann Arbor Chancel Choir. She could also be found in such Gilbert and Sullivan productions as "The Mikado" and "The Gondoliers". An avid Chancel Bells ringer, Marci shared her musical talents to bring joy to others. Last year, Marci enjoyed the adventure of a lifetime--rafting down the Colorado River with her husband and brother and sister-in-law, Dave and Mary Gilchrist. Marci's legacy of love and humanity is preserved by her husband, her two children, her daughter-in-law Diana, her mother, Betty Duff, of Cedar Rapids, IA, her extended family, and countless friends. A visitation is to be held at Muehlig Funeral Chapel in Ann Arbor on Thursday, May 26th from 4:00-8:00 pm, and a Memorial Service will take place at FUMC Ann Arbor on Thursday, June 2, beginning at 7:30 pm. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in honor of Marci's love for music and education to Detroit Youth Volume, which teaches Suzuki violin to Detroit children free of charge. http://www.detroityouthvolume.org/donate.html

Where you go for care matters
When you need medical care - it's important to decide which clinic can deliver you the right care at the right time. Here are several options on where you can go to seek care: o Primary care o Virtual care o Urgent care o Emergency care Why does it matter where I go for care? -Saves you money: by choosing the most appropriate place to receive care, you’ll save yourself unneeded expense. Emergency care is very important and we will always be here when you need us, but because it’s also the most expensive health care to deliver, you want to make sure to use emergency care only in emergencies. -Saves you time: you will almost certainly have a short wait for both urgent care and emergency care, and sometimes you’ll wait for a bit for your primary care provider as well. Virtual care provides an opportunity for a fast appointment without having to leave your chair. -Saves you from possible future issues: when you see a primary care providers regularly, you develop a relationship and your provider learns about you and your health. This can help detect medical issues earlier, and your provider can give you information and advice to help improve your health. -Saves your peace of mind: by having a variety of ways to get the care that you need, you can be assured that whenever you need us, we’ll be here for you.
