As a consequence of cancer awareness month and the no shave November LFC will run articles on male cancers.
1. TESTICULAR CANCER
Testicular cancer facts
• Testicular cancer is a disease when testicular cells become abnormal (malignant) in one or both testicles. It is the most common cancer in 20- to 35-year-old men and has two main types, seminomas and nonseminomas.
• The exact cause of testicular cancer is not known but risk factors include undescended testicle(s), congenital abnormalities (for example, kidney, penile abnormalities), and history of testicular cancer (for example, family history or personal history of testicular cancer in one testicle) and being white.
• Testicular cancer is often first detected by the patient discovering a lump or swelling in a testicle; other symptoms include testicular pain or discomfort; testicular enlargement; aches in the abdomen, back, or groin; or a fluid collection in the scrotum
• Some doctors recommend that men ages 15 to 55 perform a monthly self-examination to find any changes. Monthly testicular self-examinations, performed after a warm shower, can help find the cancer at an early stage, when it is more likely to be successfully treated. Men who notice a lump, hardness, enlargement, pain, or any other change in 1 or both of their testicles should visit their doctor immediately.
The Concept. The goal of No-Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free. Donate the money you typically spend on shaving and grooming to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS TO NO SHAVE NOVEMBER?
1. YOU’RE SUPPORTING CANCER AWARENESS.
While you’re growing out your beard for the month, you’re likely to tell people about why you’re doing it. It’s a great conversation starter, and can really generate a huge conversation about cancer. It can get more people to make sure they’re getting regular checks for prostate cancer, breast cancer, melanoma, etc.
2. IF YOU’RE DOING IT RIGHT, YOU’RE DONATING MONEY TO CANCER RESEARCH.
To properly participate in No Shave November, you should be donating the money that you aren’t spending on razors and shaving accessories to a cancer research organization, such as cancer foundations or the cancer hospitals. Don’t just participate in No Shave November to grow an awesome beard — make it worthwhile and donate the money you’re saving to cancer research!
So let us all get stuck in it and raise awareness of all the different cancers that afflict us as mankind.
Flu season is upon us and we take care of your needs.We now have the flu vaccine available at the clinic and our other facility Kabelenga Family hospital. Get your flu shots now. Remember “ healthy family , healthy nation “
Today we celebrate World Hypertension Day and the theme is 'Know Your Numbers,' with a goal of increasing high blood pressure awareness in all populations around the world. The World Hypertension Day was first inaugurated in the year 2005 and has become an annual event ever since. The purpose of the day is to promote public awareness of hypertension and to encourage citizens of all countries to prevent and control this silent killer, the modern epidemic. Here's everything you need to know about hypertension or blood pressure along with natural ways to control and regulate it to lead a healthy life.
What Causes Hypertension or High Blood Pressure?
The exact causes of blood pressure are not clear. However, various lifestyle conditions have been known to significantly contribute to hypertension. Here are a few factors that contribute to this condition.
• Being overweight
• Bing-drinking alcohol
• Excessive smoking
• Family history of high blood pressure
• Not getting enough physical activity
• Old age
Natural Ways To Control Hypertension
Your dietary choices may impact your blood pressure significantly. Choosing the right diet is all you need to keep yourself healthy. Here's a checklist of things that you need to do to keep it in control.
• 1. Eat less salt
• Consume less amount of salt as sodium consumption can cause a spike in blood pressure. Eating salt raises the amount of sodium in your bloodstream and wrecks the balance, reducing the ability of your kidneys to remove water. The result is a high blood pressure.
• 2. Include bananas in your diet
• Rich in potassium, bananas are great for reducing blood pressure. To incorporate more bananas in your diet, add them in your cereal, cakes, bread, smoothies, shakes, et al.
• 3. Load up on greens
• These green leafy delights are low in calories, high in fibre and packed with nutrients like magnesium, potassium, folate, et al, which are known to be the key ingredients for lowering and maintaining hypertension or high blood pressure.
• Eating a high fibre diet can help maintain a healthy blood pressure and oatmeal does wonders, which can reduce both systolic and diastolic pressure. So include this low-sodium food in your pancakes, cakes, cereals, et al.
• 5. Watermelon
• Watermelon contains an amino acid known as L-citrulline that has been proven to lower blood pressure. It is a heart health promoting food loaded with lycopenes, fibre, potassium and vitamin A, all of which have blood pressure lowering effects.

Step 1: Begin by looking at your breasts in the mirror with your shoulders straight and your arms on your hips.
Here's what you should look for:
• Breasts that are their usual size, shape, and color
• Breasts that are evenly shaped without visible distortion or swelling
If you see any of the following changes, bring them to your doctor's attention:
• Dimpling, puckering, or bulging of the skin
• A nipple that has changed position or an inverted nipple (pushed inward instead of sticking out)
• Redness, soreness, rash, or swelling
Step 2: Now, raise your arms and look for the same changes as mentioned above.
Step 3: While you're at the mirror, look for any signs of fluid coming out of one or both nipples (this could be a watery, milky, or yellow fluid or blood).
Step 4: Next, feel your breasts while lying down, using your right hand to feel your left breast and then your left hand to feel your right breast. Use a firm, smooth touch with the first few finger pads of your hand, keeping the fingers flat and together. Use a circular motion, about the size of a large coin.
Cover the entire breast from top to bottom, side to side — from your collarbone to the top of your abdomen, and from your armpit to your cleavage.
Follow a pattern to be sure that you cover the whole breast. You can begin at the nipple, moving in larger and larger circles until you reach the outer edge of the breast. You can also move your fingers up and down vertically, in rows, as if you were mowing a lawn. This up-and-down approach seems to work best for most women. Be sure to feel all the tissue from the front to the back of your breasts: for the skin and tissue just beneath, use light pressure; use medium pressure for tissue in the middle of your breasts; use firm pressure for the deep tissue in the back. When you've reached the deep tissue, you should be able to feel down to your ribcage.
Step 5: Finally, feel your breasts while you are standing or sitting. Many women find that the easiest way to feel their breasts is when their skin is wet and slippery, so they like to do this step in the shower. Cover your entire breast, using the same hand movements described in step 4.
A mammogram is a low-dose x-ray that allows specialists to look for changes in breast tissue. Mammograms are used as a screening tool to detect early breast cancer in women experiencing no symptoms. They can also be used to detect and diagnose breast disease in women experiencing symptoms such as a lump, pain, skin dimpling or nipple discharge.
What happens during a mammogram?
What to expect when getting a screening mammogram
• You'll have to undress above the waist to get a mammogram. ...
• A technologist will position your breasts for the mammogram. ...
• To get a high-quality picture, your breast must be flattened. ...
• The whole procedure takes about 20 minutes.
What is the recommended age for the first mammogram?
If you have a strong family history of breast cancer (mother or sister), start having your mammogram 10 years younger than the age that relative was diagnosed, OR at age 40, whichever is younger. For example, if your sister had breast cancer when she was 44, you should start having your mammogram at age 34.
When should you get a mammogram?
Women ages 40 to 44 should have the choice to start annual breast cancer screening with mammograms (x-rays of the breast) if they wish to do so. Women age 45 to 54 should get mammograms every year. Women 55 and older should switch to mammograms every 2 years, or can continue yearly screening.
Is a mammogram safe?
Finding breast cancer early reduces your risk of dying from the disease by 25-30% or more. Women should begin having mammograms yearly at age 40, or earlier if they're at high risk. Don't be afraid. ... The procedure is safe: there's only a very tiny amount of radiation exposure from a mammogram.

ABOUT THE FLU VACCINE
Influenza vaccines have been shown to give antibody responses and to provide protection against clinical illness in a proportion of vaccinees. Because the influenza virus is capricious antigenically and because significant changes in its antigenic behaviour may occur from time to time, protection afforded by the Flu Vaccine is limited to the strains from which the vaccine has been prepared or to closely related strains.
Seroprotection is generally obtained within 2 to 3 weeks.
WHO CAN GET THE VACCINE?
The Flu vaccine is indicated for the prevention of influenza caused by Influenza Virus types A and B in adults and children aged 6 months and over.
WHO CAN’T BE GIVEN THE VACCINE?
The Flu Vaccine should not be given to persons with a history of severe allergic reaction to egg proteins (eggs or egg products), to chicken proteins, to any other component of the vaccine including traces (formaldehyde, octoxinol 9 (Triton X-100) and neomycin) or after previous administration of the vaccine or a vaccine containing the same components. Vaccination must be postponed in case of moderate or severe febrile or acute disease.
ANY EFFECTS ON FERTILITY?
Flu Vaccine has not been evaluated for the effects on fertility
CAN THE VACCINE BE GIVEN IN PREGNANCY?
The Flu vaccine should be given to a pregnant woman following an assessment of the risks and benefits. Health authorities recommend vaccination of pregnant women
CAN CHILDREN RECIEVE THE FLU VACCINE?
Paediatric Use of the Flu vaccine is not recommended in children below the age of 6 months.
USE IN THE ELDERLY
