July 2015 - Regaining independence after cancer treatment

Getting well is a cancer patient’s main job. Treatments can require time away from work and everyday activities, leaving many survivors looking forward to a more “normal” way of life. That may include returning to work, but the transition can be tough.

June 2015 - Cancer prevention

Many people mistakenly believe that cancer is largely a hereditary disease, as if fate and the family gene pool alone dictate your chances of getting sick. The truth, though, is that only about 5 to 10 percent of all cancers develop from gene mutations passed down from one generation to the next, according to the American Cancer Society.

May 2015 - Mental health and cancer

A cancer diagnosis can prove challenging to anyone’s state of mind, often eliciting feelings of sadness, grief and frustration. Treatment regimens can also impact patients’ ability to maintain their daily routines, which may increase their risk of depression. But depression doesn’t have to go hand in hand with a cancer diagnosis.

April 2015 - Cancer's impact on sexual health

A healthy sex life can be difficult to achieve even in normal circumstances, with the pressures of work, family and other stresses that come with day-to-day living. Add a cancer diagnosis and treatment regimen to the equation, and sexual relationships can prove an even bigger struggle. This is true for both men and women, but how they handle this often-taboo topic and the obstacles they confront are as different as their biological makeup.

March 2015 - Nutrition and colorectal cancer

The third most common cancer affecting both men and women, colorectal cancer is "highly preventable" with regular screenings, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Proper nutrition can also play in important role in helping to prevent the disease. Doctors share tips and patients share some of their favorite cancer-fighting recipes during what is both National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month and National Nutrition Month.
