Hereditary Breast Cancer Are You at Risk

Hereditary Breast Cancer Are You at Risk

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, November 8, 2016 – For about five to ten percent of women diagnosed with breast cancer, hereditary factors are the root cause. In fact, having a first-degree (mother, sister, daughter) relative with breast cancer, increases the potential that you are carrying a mutated breast cancer gene.   And, women who inherit a gene mutation have a much higher risk of developing breast cancer.A gene can often harbor an abnormality that changes how the cell works or responds to its environment. According to Sara Carroll, genetic counselor at Cleveland Clinic Florida, “the most common causes of hereditary breast cancer include mutations in the BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 gene.”  There are other hereditary causes of breast cancer, but these are the most prevalent. These genes can be inherited from either parent.BRCA genes help to correct DNA damage. In people with a mutation in BRCA1 or BRCA2, the ability to repair damage is impaired and can sometimes lead to breast cancer.  This suggests an estimated 87% lifetime risk of developing breast cancer, which begins to steeply rise at the age of 30. The risk of developing breast cancer by the age of 50 is approximately 50%.There are several factors that can suggest the possibility that hereditary breast cancer runs in your family. You should be concerned if:There is both breast and ovarian cancer in your family.Diagnosis of breast cancer has occurred before age 50.Diagnosis of bilateral breast cancer (cancer in both breasts).Ask about genetic counseling if you are concerned, or call for a risk assessment appointment if you are unsure. High-risk women can be tested to screen for mutations in the BRCA genes. “Genetic testing can be beneficial in determining whether a cancer diagnosis was random or the result of an inherited mutation,” says Ms. Carroll.  This is valuable information, as there may also be an increased risk for other cancers as well.  Your family members will also benefit from discovering whether a hereditary risk exists.At the genetic counseling visit, a personal and detailed family medical history will be obtained.  Depending what your hereditary risk factors are, we can determine whether or not genetic testing is appropriate, and which genetic changes to assess.  Genetic testing involves a blood test, and the results are typically known in a few weeks. Hereditary risk assessment and genetic testing have become tools in the personalization of breast cancer treatment, by providing a basic understanding of the structure and function of genes at a molecular level. This knowledge allows the best clinical management to be determined.  In some instances, additional breast cancer risk management options may be necessary.  Tell your doctor about your family history of breast cancer and discuss whether that history might support the consideration of changes to your care.The Breast Center at Cleveland Clinic Florida is fully accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a designation given to centers that are committed to providing the highest quality breast care. The breast cancer team provides the most up-to-date information on the genetic components of breast cancer, and offers predictive testing for family members who may have inherited a specific genetic mutation.“Understanding the increased genetic risk enables you to evaluate your options in advance.  Working with our breast cancer care team, you can create a personalized plan, designed to prevent or detect cancer at an earlier and more treatable stage,” states Ms. Carroll.  Women can be empowered to make important health decisions, armed with the knowledge of their genetic breast cancer risk.last_img read more

Wilmington Little Leagues Latest Game Summaries

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — Below are a couple of recent Wilmington Little League game summaries:AAA: Astros vs. Pirates on Saturday, May 4, 2019 at Boutwell FieldAnother hard-fought game was waged between the Pirates and the Astros. After leading for most of the game, the Pirates were unable to hold off the tenacious Astros, falling 10 to 8 in 5 innings. Mickey Moroney was stellar for the Pirates in his first game on the mound pitching two solid innings. With some timely hitting, the Pirates held leads of 4 to 1 and 5 to 3 into the middle innings. The Astros’ starter Dylan Costantiello struck out one and made a nice play in the field during his inning of work. Tony Cummings then pitched three innings, striking out seven and making two plays of his own. Finally, Cael Considine baffled the Pirates’ hitters in the last inning, striking out two. Solid fielding is emerging as one of the Astros’ strengths. Considine’s two putouts at first base, Aidan Raposa’s great play at third for an unassisted putout, and Owen Wills snaring a sharp grounder at third holding the Pirates’ batter to a single were three examples. Every Astro found his way on base during the game led by Kevin Pruslin, John Roofe, Patrick Moriarty, and Jake Gryglik who were each on base three times. Roofe continued his hot hitting with a single and a booming double. Moriarty ripped two singles as the other player with a two-hit afternoon. Raposa launched a screaming single up the middle in the third inning and Pruslin, Cummings, Considine, Andrew Santo, and Kyle Price added singles of their own. Costantiello, Connor Jamieson, Gryglik, and Wills were among those who displayed their keen batting eyes working walks and Gryglik again showed his blazing speed with a stolen base. The final rally included clutch hits and walks by Roofe, Santo, Raposa, Jamieson, and then the game-winning single by Moriarty scoring Santo. Overall, the Pirates and Astros left it all out on the field and had a great time doing so!Single A: Ray vs. Pirates on Monday, May 6, 2019 at Boutwell FieldThe Pirates and Rays played a close game. The Rays made several great plays and had strong pitching performances from Michael Crowley, Tommy Roofe, and Ryan Doherty. Defense was impressive tonight featuring great plays by Brendan Cyr and an impressive inning as catcher by Sean Witalisz. The bats were alive early on with some big hits by Benji Hebert, Alex Sullivan, Chris Gattineri, Jackson Childs, and Cameron White. The Pirates were led on the mound by Zach Maiella, Ryan Biggins, and Bart Zaino, while Joshua Lopez and Colby O’Brien were strong behind the plate. Jack Jamieson had a great defensive game at first base as well. The bats were on fire early, with Nico McCollem starting things with a leadoff hit. Bradley Stephen, Sam Beaudoin, and Sean Theodos joined in with their own timely hits, and Ben Sawyer showed off his speed running the bases.(NOTE: Summaries provided by the Wilmington Little League.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

According to the club, the player in question “could be any one of us celebrating a goal, it’s a moment of euphoria and glee, which is what we want people to come here and enjoy.” Home of Real Betis Closecenter_img When setting foot inside the stadium, the visitor is immediately struck by how the lush green of the hallowed turf and the white tones of the limestone that surrounds the pitch coincide with the colour scheme in the stands, which are dominated by a Betis player who spans the seats of the three tiers behind the goal in the form of a mosaic. Real Betis is a club where the allegiance is passed down from grandparents to parents and in turn on to their children, creating a strong sense of belonging and a fervent passion for the badge in the process. The spiritual and geographical hub and heart of this club is their iconic stadium Benito Villamarin.

Editors Council calls section 32 an attack on democracy

first_imgEditors` Council calls section 32 an attack on democracyEditors’ Council has asked the government to drop the controversial section 32 of the proposed digital security act.In a statement signed by council’s secretary general, Mahfuz Anam, on Tuesday, the council expressed conviction that if enacted, the law would create an atmosphere of stopping pursuit of journalism independently.”The section 32 of the digital security act that defines [journalism as] digital spying and keeps provision for punishment is an attack on the democratic spirit and the freedom of expression,” the council said.The council members held a meeting chaired by its president Golam Sarwar at The Daily Star centre and discussed in detail the draft of the Digital Security Bill 2018, endorsed by the cabinet.In its statement issued afterwards, the council protested at and expressed concern at the drafting of yet another draconian law, instead of scrapping the controversial section 57 of the ICT Act.The section 32 of the proposed digital security law has equated journalism with spying and kept provision for 14 years of imprisonment for such “offence”.The council recalled that the law minister assured journalists of removing all controversial provisions of ICT and other acts that hinder the journalistic practice.”The proposed law is harsher. It will only shrink the space for independent journalism and expressing opinions,” the council added.The council leaders called on the government to hold talks with stakeholders before passing the law.last_img

30pc Freedom Fighters quota to remain unchanged Minister

first_imgAKM Mozammel HuqMinister of liberation war affairs AKM Mozammel Haque said there will be no intervention in the 30 per cent quotas in government jobs for freedom fighters.The minister said this at a press conference on Tuesday morning held by the liberation war affairs ministry at the information and communications department conference room in the secretariat. The conference gave an update on the recent activities and about the reservation of quotas in government jobs for the freedom fighters.The minister also said that, there is nothing to worry for the freedom fighters, their families and the people who believe in the spirit of the liberation war.Referring to the High Court verdict, Mozammel Haque said, there remains the opportunity to fulfil the vacant positions with merit list candidates if eligible freedom fighters’ candidates are not available. But, it is compulsory to reserve 30 per cent quota for the freedom fighters. There is no option to ignore or evade the order. To do anything other than this would be a violation of the court, he added.The minister expressed hope that the secretary-level committee formed by the government for quota review would take their decision consciously. Also the copy of the court verdict has been forwarded to the committee, he said.A High Court bench on 5 March, in answer to a writ petition seeking cancellation of quota, passed an order in favour of upholding the system in government jobs.On 2 July, the government formed a seven-member secretary-level committee headed by the cabinet secretary in the face of growing protest seeking quota reforms across the country by students and job seekers.The newly formed committee has already held a meeting. In this backdrop, the liberation war affairs minister called the conference on the quota issue.The prime minister in parliament declared an abolition of quotas and the quota review committee has started to work on the matter.Minister Mozammel Haque said, as long as the court order is upheld there is no scope for revising the freedom fighters’ quota. If the government wants it must approach the court.The minister said, ‘The committee can give their opinion after reconsidering the rest of the quotas other than this one for freedom fighters. Then the government can act accordingly.”The minister also spoke about the other activities of the liberation war affairs ministry.last_img read more

Google remembers Raja Ram Mohan Roy

Google remembers Raja Ram Mohan Roy

first_imgGoogle DoodleGoogle on Tuesday celebrated the 246th birth anniversary of renowned social reformer Raja Ram Mohan Roy recognised as the “Father of the Indian Renaissance”, who paved the way for a modern India.Roy was a non-conformist to many a tradition he was born into on this day in 1772, in Radhanagar village in Murshidabad district of West Bengal.Although born into a Hindu Brahmin family, where his father Ramkanto Roy, was a Vaishnavite, Roy at a young age left home, shunned orthodox rituals and idol worship and became a staunch supporter of monotheism.Following his differences with his father, Roy went on a journey that took him far from his roots. He travelled extensively including in Tibet and the Himalayas.He studied Persian and Arabic along with Sanskrit, which influenced his thinking about God. He read Upanishads, Vedas and the Quran and translated a lot of the scriptures into English.When he returned home, his parents married him off in a bid to change his outlook. But Roy continued to explore the depths of Hinduism only to highlight its hypocrisy.After his father’s death in 1803 he moved to Murshidabad, where he published his first book Tuhfat-ul-Muwahhidin (A Gift to Monotheism).Roy took a keen interest in European politics and followed the course of the French Revolution.In 1814, he settled in Calcutta, and the following year he founded the Atmiya Sabha. In 1828, he established the Brahmo Samaj, which is considered to be one of India’s first socio-religious reform movements.However, his most significant contribution as a social engineer was towards women’s rights. Nearly 200 years ago, when evils like-Sati-plagued the society, Roy played a critical role to bring about a change.He opposed the regressive practice that forced a widow to immolate herself on husband’s pyre.The doodle on Roy, created by Beena Mistry, a designer based out of Toronto, shows Roy speaking at a public meeting with his detractors in the background. There is also the presence of a woman among the audience, this is at a time when the purdah system was rigidly followed.He campaigned for equal rights for women, including the right to remarry and the right to hold property.In 1830, he travelled to the UK as the Mughal Empire’s envoy to ensure that Lord William Bentinck’s law banning the practice of Sati was not overturned.Roy was also one of the pioneers of Indian journalism. He published several journals in Bengali, Persian, Hindi and English to propagate social reforms.Bengali weekly Samvad Kaumudi was the most important journal that he published. The Atmiya Sabha published an English weekly called the Bengal Gazette and a Persian newspaper called Miratul-Akbar.Roy died in a village near Bristol in England on 26 September 1833 of meningitis, and was buried there.last_img read more

What Drives Asylum Seekers To The US

What Drives Asylum Seekers To The US

first_img 00:00 /11:03 There’s been a considerable amount of controversy concerning our southern border with the detention and deportation of Central American immigrants. But we seem to focus so much lately on what happens at the border after that point – namely the separation of families – that perhaps we overlook the situation that leads to all that.With so much gang and drug cartel activity in Central American countries, should it be any surprise that so many are willing to risk detainment – or even death – to make the dangerous journey to the United States? And with all of that going on, what are the leaders and institutions in those countries doing to keep their citizens safe? And how much will the upcoming presidential election in Mexico play into this?In the audio above, Houston Matters host Craig Cohen talks with University of Houston political science professor Jeronimo Cortina about the political situation south of the U.S. and how it drives so many to migrate northward.

Carson Palmer speaks on upcoming Cardinals Ring of Honor induction

Carson Palmer speaks on upcoming Cardinals Ring of Honor induction

first_imgIt started with a FaceTime call.This was atypical for Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill, who regularly called former Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer through the phone to catch up and ask how he was doing.But the two never FaceTimed. Palmer thought it was a pocket-dial.When he answered the phone, Michael Bidwill’s face appeared, with his classic red tie and all.“I was blown away that that’s what the conversation ended up being,” Palmer said Wednesday. Palmer mentioned his unfamiliarity with players on the Cardinals roster, as well as being the older guy in the room.“[I] was just was so pleasantly surprised to be a little bit older than most of the guys on the team and kinda be the elder statesmen,” he said. “To come in and just be accepted and welcomed with open arms by everybody was just, it was amazing.”The Ring of Honor ceremony will take place on Sept. 29 when the Seahawks play the Cardinals. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires 5 Comments   Share   The FaceTime wasn’t a mistake or a pocket-dial. It was intentional on Bidwill’s part and for good reason.Palmer was being inducted into the Cardinals Ring of Honor.“[It was an] absolute honor,” Palmer said. “I’ve been humbled. I’m excited to share it with my family.”Palmer’s five years with the Cardinals featured two playoff appearances and three 10-plus win seasons. The quarterback threw for 16,782 yards and 105 touchdowns with the team. Injuries plagued two of his seasons, which eventually led to his retirement after the 2017-18 season.Palmer touched on how being traded, something he experienced when leaving Cincinnati for Oakland, is a wild ride.“When you get traded, you don’t know where exactly the facility is in the city, the stadium…” he said. “All those questions and concerns you have when you’re moving your family to a new city, trying to get kids into school. It was such a seamless transition and such a great transition and I’m just so appreciative that I got to experience being a Cardinal.”Related LinksCardinals’ David Johnson ‘honors’ Carson Palmer with self-made hatNew Cardinals defense to allow Baker, others to make playsOrlovsky: Murray ‘one of the great all-time QB prospects’ if not for heightThe transition was also a football one.“It was such a pleasant surprise because I really didn’t know much about the NFC; I’ve been in the AFC my whole career,” he said. “[I] didn’t know a ton about the NFC West.” Top Stories center_img Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer speaks to the media during a news conference after an NFL football game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Sunday, Oct. 15, 2017, in Glendale, Ariz.
