                Breast Cancer and Early Detection

                The most basic step in the early detection of breast cancer is monthly breast self-exams. If a woman finds something unfamiliar while examining her breasts she is encouraged to make an appointment right away. In addition to self examinations, clinical breast exams and annual mammograms are very important and increase a woman's chances of surviving breast cancer.

                To help make breast care accessible to women, Bassett has mammogram units in several locations. To schedule an appointment for a mammogram, call your primary care provider for a referral. For more information about Bassett's Breast Care program, call 1-800-939-0090.

                Lung cancer is the second most common cancer in both men and women in the United States. Each year, more people die of lung cancer than colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined. For people who smoke, the risk for developing lung cancer is much higher; more than 80 percent of lung cancer deaths result from smoking. Smoking-related lung cancer is preventable.

                Lung cancer symptoms do not usually appear until the disease has progressed to an advanced stage. Even when symptoms do arise, people often mistake them for other problems like infections and smoking-related conditions.

                Trial of a Lifetime: Martha Fitzpatrick's Story

                Martha Fitzpatrick is helping to find a cure for cancer in a way she never imagined.Martha Fitzpatrick Nadene Willcox-6.JPG

                Fitzpatrick, from South Plymouth, was offered the option to enter a clinical trial after being diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. M. Bernadette Ryan, MD, a thoracic and oncology surgeon at Bassett Medical Center, informed Fitzpatrick that her cancer type fit the profile for a study being conducted at Bassett Cancer Institute.

                “At first, I was startled,” Fitzpatrick says. “I thought patients only entered clinical trials as a last-ditch effort after all other treatment options have failed.”

                Nadene Willcox, RN, an oncology research nurse at Bassett Cancer Institute, explained misconceptions about clinical trials. “The truth is, they can offer innovative treatments to patients at different stages of cancer,” Willcox says.

                For the 1.2 million Americans who face a cancer diagnosis each year, choosing the best course of treatment can be overwhelming. Bassett participates in National Cancer Institute clinical research protocols that provide new drugs and innovative combinations with standard treatments.

                For Fitzpatrick, Bassett Cancer Institute was the best choice she ever made.


                Innovative Treatment Close to Home
                “I had no idea that Bassett conducts clinical research for cancer,” says Fitzpatrick. “The more I researched it, I discovered that I was being offered the most quality treatment I could encounter … and it’s not far from home.”

                After undergoing surgery, Fitzpatrick entered the clinical trial and received a promising new drug for her cancer type. “It took my breath away how innovative Bassett Cancer Institute’s approach to treating cancer is,” Fitzpatrick says.

                Fitzpatrick completed treatment in 2014, and as part of the clinical trial, Bassett Cancer Institute will monitor her health for 10 years. “It feels wonderful to contribute to research,” says Fitzpatrick. “I have a part in finding a cure.”

                “I always encourage my patients to consider clinical trials if there are any available for them,” says Dr. Ryan. “This ensures that they have access to the best care and improves treatment for all patients.”

                 

                 

                 

                Clinical Trials at Bassett: Christopher Kuhn's Journey

                “It was just a little mole,” reflected Christopher Kuhn, a patient who came to see surgeon Dr. Bernadette Ryan at Bassett Medical Center for a seemingly routine mole removal. Christopher was ultimately diagnosed with melanoma in 2013. “She [Dr. Ryan] talked a bit about the cancer options, which is pretty much interferon . . . and the opportunity to go into a study.”

                Christopher entered a clinical trial for melanoma in 2014 at Bassett Cancer Institute in Cooperstown. “From what we’d researched, this was the best option available, and it was available locally,” explains LeeAnn Kuhn, Christopher’s wife.

                “Here was an opportunity to contribute. Here was an opportunity to be part of a study that could help,” states Christopher. “I’m very grateful. I think the experience itself made me a better person.”

                  If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all of your medical options, including the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available.

                  The da Vinci System enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision. The da Vinci system is used to perform:

                  • Hysterectomies
                  • Partial Nephrectomies
                  • Prostatectomies
                  • Rectal cancer and rectal prolapse

                  For the patient, benefits may include:

                  • Significantly less pain
                  • Less blood loss
                  • Less scarring
                  • Shorter recovery time
                  • A faster return to normal daily activities

                    A hysterectomy (surgical removal of the uterus) is still one of the most common surgeries performed in the United States. It can be performed either through the vagina, using small incisions through the abdomen (laparoscopically), or through a single larger abdominal incision (laparotomy), depending on the size of your uterus and the reason for your hysterectomy. Sometimes the cervix is left in place (supracervical hysterectomy). Sometimes it is recommended that the ovaries and fallopian tubes are removed as well. If a hysterectomy is medically necessary, our providers will be here to discuss all of your options and help you choose the best option.

                    If your doctor recommends surgery for a kidney disease such as kidney cancer, you may be a candidate for a minimally invasive, kidney-sparing surgery. Depending on your disease state and tumor location, you may not have to lose your entire kidney to surgery. A surgical technique called partial nephrectomy removes only the diseased part of your kidney while sparing the healthy, functioning kidney tissue.

                    Facing any kind of urologic surgery creates a great deal of anxiety for most men. Among your concerns is: "Will my body function normally following surgery?" Traditional open urologic surgery - in which large incisions are made to access the pelvic organs - has been the standard approach when surgery is warranted. Yet common drawbacks of this procedure include significant post-surgical pain, a lengthy recovery and an unpredictable, potentially long-term impact on continence and sexual function.

                        What are lipids?

                        Lipid is a medical term for fat that is present in the bloodstream. There are two main types of lipids – cholesterol and triglycerides. Cholesterol is a waxy substance produced by the body and found in some foods that provides energy. Having too much cholesterol can lead to heart disease and stroke. Triglycerides are another type of lipid, or fat, found in blood and foods. Excess triglycerides are often caused by weight gain, lack of exercise, smoking, alcohol use and a high-carbohydrate diet. High levels of triglycerides are linked to heart disease – especially in women. Maintaining healthy lipid numbers is important in preventing heart disease and stroke.


                        What can I expect during my first visit?

                        When you arrive for your first appointment, you will meet with Merle Myerson, MD, and review your cardiovascular risk factors, lifestyle, family history, and medications. You may have blood tests or cardiac tests ordered, after which you will have a follow-up meeting with Dr. Myerson to discuss a management plan.

                                    Pulmonary function tests (also called lung function tests) help measure how well your lungs are working. The tests measure the amount of air you breathe out (exhale) and how long it takes for you to exhale completely. These tests are done to diagnose lung conditions such as asthma and COPD. They may be done before and after you take certain medications. They may also be used to find out whether your shortness of breath gets worse with exercise. Over time, pulmonary function tests can help you and your healthcare providers see how well your treatment is working.

What doesn’t vary is the need for specialized, focused, comprehensive care, whether a patient is being treated for a one-time problem or for a long-term condition.

                                    Occupational Therapists are trained to analyze the task requirements of each activity to identify barriers that may hinder a person’s independence in the activities of daily living for use in the home and community. This analysis can include the physical/physiological, psychological/cognitive, sensory, socio/economic and cultural aspects of a given task.

Depending on your disease state and tumor location, you may not have to lose your entire kidney to surgery. A surgical technique called partial nephrectomy removes only the diseased part of your kidney while sparing the healthy, functioning kidney tissue.

Among your concerns is: "Will my body function normally following surgery?" Traditional open urologic surgery - in which large incisions are made to access the pelvic organs - has been the standard approach when surgery is warranted. Yet common drawbacks of this procedure include significant post-surgical pain, a lengthy recovery and an unpredictable, potentially long-term impact on continence and sexual function.

                                              A bone density study helps diagnose osteoporosis (bone thinning). Scans of your lower back, hip, or forearm are taken to measure the amount of calcium (density) in your bones. Calcium is the mineral that makes up your bones. The technologist will adjust your body and the scanner during the exam.

                                              Breast Cancer and Early Detection

                                              The most basic step in the early detection of breast cancer is monthly breast self-exams. If a woman finds something unfamiliar while examining her breasts she is encouraged to make an appointment right away. In addition to self examinations, clinical breast exams and annual mammograms are very important and increase a woman's chances of surviving breast cancer.

                                              To help make breast care accessible to women, Bassett has mammogram units in several locations. To schedule an appointment for a mammogram, call your primary care provider for a referral. For more information about Bassett's Breast Care program, call 1-800-939-0090.

                                              Mammography is an x-ray exam of breast tissue. The image produced is called a mammogram. A mammogram can help detect problems with your breasts, such as cysts or cancer.

                                            Every year, chronic wounds and other conditions keep millions of Americans from enjoying their best quality of life. The staff at Bassett Healthcare Network - Center for Wound Healing use scientifically advanced, proven therapies, like the most advanced dressings and hyperbaric oxygen therapy to help heal patients who suffer from chronic and non-healing wounds.

                                            We treat diabetic wounds that are slow-to-heal or not healing, such as:

                                            • Foot or leg ulcers or sores
                                            • Surgical wounds that have opened (or “dehisced”)
                                            • Skin grafts or surgical flaps that are not healing post-surgery
                                            • Open wounds caused by radiation therapy
                                            • Bone infection (called osteomyelitis)

                                            We also care for Internal ‘injuries’ where no open wound exists, including:

                                            • Select acute traumatic and crush injuries
                                            • Radiation cystitis or proctitis
                                            • Reconstruction of jaw or bone (related to mandibular osteoradionecrosis)
