Side Effects of Radiation Therapy #how #effective #is #radiation #therapy #for #cancer


#

Radiation therapy treats many types of cancer effectively. But like other treatments, it often causes side effects. These are different for each person. They depend on the type of cancer, its location, the radiation therapy dose, and your general health.

Why does radiation therapy cause side effects?

High doses of radiation therapy are used to destroy cancer cells. Side effects occur because radiation therapy can also damage healthy cells and tissues near the treatment area. Today, major advances in radiation technology have made it more precise, leading to fewer side effects.

For some people, radiation therapy causes few or no side effects. For others, the side effects are more severe. Reactions often start during the second or third week of treatment. They may last for several weeks after the final treatment.

Can side effects be prevented or treated?

Yes. Your health care team can help you prevent or treat many side effects. Preventing and treating side effects is an important part of cancer treatment. This type of care is called palliative care .

Common general side effects

Radiation therapy is a local treatment. Therefore, it only affects the area of the body where the tumor is located. For example, people do not usually lose their hair from having radiation therapy. But if radiation therapy is aimed at a part of the body that grows hair, such as the scalp, a person may have hair loss.

Skin problems. Some people who receive radiation therapy experience dryness, itching, blistering, or peeling. But these side effects often depend on which part of the body received radiation therapy. If you develop skin problem, they usually go away a few weeks after treatment has finished. If skin damage becomes a serious problem, the doctor may change your treatment plan.

Fatigue. Fatigue is feeling tired or exhausted almost all the time. Your level of fatigue depends on whether you are having other treatments, such as chemotherapy. Learn more about how to cope with fatigue .

Long-term side effects. Most side effects go away after treatment. But some continue, come back, or develop later. These late effects may include developing a second cancer. However, the risk of having a second cancer because of radiation therapy is low. This risk is often smaller than the benefit of treating the primary, existing cancer.

Side effects specific to where radiation therapy is given

In addition to general side effects, some side effects of therapy depend on the type and location of the radiation.

Head and neck. If radiation therapy is aimed at a person’s head and/or neck, they may experience these side effects:

Mouth and gum sores


What Is Self-Injury Disorder? #self-injury, #self-harm, #self-mutilation, #causes, #treatment, #head-banging, #cutting, #pulling #hair, #body #piercing,


#

Mental Health and Self-Injury

Self injury, also called self-harm, self-mutilation, or simply cutting, is defined as any intentional injury to one’s own body. Usually, self-injury leaves marks or causes tissue damage. Self-injury can involve any of the following behaviors:

  • Cutting
  • Burning (or “branding” with hot objects)
  • Excessive body piercing or tattooing
  • Picking at skin or re-opening wounds
  • Hair -pulling (trichotillomania )
  • Head-banging
  • Hitting (with hammer or other object)
  • Bone-breaking

Most who engage in self-injury act alone rather than in groups. They also attempt to hide their behavior.

Who Is More Likely to Engage in Self-Injury?

Self-injury occurs across the spectrum; the behavior is not limited by education, age, race, sexual orientation. socioeconomic status, or religion. However, self-injury occurs more often among:

  • Adolescent females
  • People who have a history of physical, emotional, or sexual abuse
  • People who have co-existing problems of substance abuse. obsessive-compulsive disorder. or eating disorders
  • Individuals who were often raised in families that discouraged expression of anger
  • Individuals who lack skills to express their emotions and lack a good social support network

What Leads to Self-Injury?

Self-injury usually occurs when people face what seem like overwhelming or distressing feelings. It can also be an act of rebellion and/or rejection of parents’ values and a way of individualizing oneself. Sufferers may feel that self-injury is a way of:

  • Temporarily relieving intense feelings, pressure, or anxiety .
  • Being a means to control and manage pain – unlike the pain experienced through physical or sexual abuse or trauma.
  • Providing a way to break through emotional numbness (the self-anesthesia that allows someone to cut without feeling pain).
  • Asking for help in an indirect way or drawing attention to the need for help.
  • Attempting to affect others by manipulating them, trying to make them care, trying to make them feel guilty, or trying to make them go away.

Self-injury also may be a reflection of a person’s self-hatred. Some self-injurers are punishing themselves for having strong feelings that they were usually not allowed to express as children. They also may be punishing themselves for somehow being bad and undeserving. These feelings are an outgrowth of abuse and a belief that the abuse was deserved.

Although self-inflicted injury may result in life-threatening damage, it is not considered to be suicidal behavior.

Continued

What Are the Symptoms of Self-Injury?

The symptoms of self-injury include:

  • Frequent cuts and burns that cannot be explained
  • Self-punching or scratching
  • Needle sticking
  • Head banging
  • Eye pressing
  • Finger or arm biting
  • Pulling out one’s hair
  • Picking at one’s skin

Warning Signs of Self-Injury

Signs that an individual may be engaging in self-injury include:

  • Wearing of pants and long sleeves in warm weather.
  • The appearance of lighters, razors, or sharp objects that one would not expect among a person’s belongings.
  • Low self-esteem.
  • Difficulty handling feelings.
  • Relationship problems.
  • Poor functioning at work, school, or home.

How Is Self-Injury Diagnosed?

If an individual shows signs of self-injury, a mental health professional with self-injury expertise should be consulted. That person will be able to make an evaluation and recommend a course of treatment. Self-injury can be a symptom of psychiatric illness including:

How Is Self-Injury Treated?

Treatment for self-injury may include:

  • Psychotherapy: Counseling can be used to help a person stop engaging in self-injury.
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): DBT is a group- and individually-based treatment program that helps people gain greater mastery over self-destructive impulses (such as self-injury), learn ways to better tolerate distress, and acquire new coping skills through techniques such as mindfulness.
  • Post-traumatic stress therapies: These may be helpful for self-injurers who have a history of abuse or incest.
  • Group therapy: Talking about your condition in a group setting to people who have similar problems may be helpful in decreasing the shame associated with self-harm, and in supporting healthy expression of emotions.
  • Family therapy: This type of therapy addresses any history of family stress related to the behavior and can help family members learn to communicate more directly and openly with each other.
  • Hypnosis and other self-relaxation techniques: These approaches are helpful in reducing the stress and tension that often precede incidents of self-injury.
  • Medications: Antidepressants. low-dose antipsychotics, or anti-anxiety medication may be used to reduce the initial impulsive response to stress.

Continued

What Is the Outlook for People Who Engage in Self-Injury?

The prognosis for self-injurious behavior varies depending upon a person’s emotional or psychological state and the nature of any underlying psychiatric condition. It is important to determine the factors that lead to an individual’s self-injuring behaviors, and to identify and treat any pre-existing personality disorders.

Bachelor s Degree in Occupational Therapy: Program Summary

Essential Information

Bachelor’s degree programs in occupational therapy are most commonly offered through the health sciences or physical therapy departments of 4-year universities and colleges. While enrolled in a bachelor’s degree program in occupational therapy, students learn the basics of patient assessment, medical procedures and therapy treatments. A bachelor’s degree program combines classroom lectures on disabling conditions and human anatomy, with clinical and practical experience. Although a bachelor’s degree is not enough education in itself to earn an occupational therapy license, it does provide a solid background in the field and prepare students for a master’s degree program in occupational therapy.

  • Art Therapist
  • Dance Therapist
  • Kinesiotherapist
  • Music Therapist
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Physical Therapy
  • Prosthetics and Orthotics
  • Rehabilitation Technologies
  • Therapeutic Recreation
  • Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor

Bachelor’s Degree in Occupational Therapy

Many of the courses included in an occupational therapy bachelor’s program are designed to provide students with a broad background in the healthcare field, as well the occupational therapy sciences. Some examples include:

  • Functional anatomy
  • Human development and functioning
  • Health services practice management
  • Occupational therapy process
  • Occupational practical and analysis

Employment Outlook and Salary Info

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 114,660 occupational therapists employed in 2014 (www.bls.gov ). Employment of occupational therapists is predicted to rise by 27% between 2014 and 2024. In 2015, the median annual salary for occupational therapists was $80,150 (www.bls.gov ).

Continuing Education

All U.S. states require that occupational therapists gain licensure before they are legally allowed to practice. Professionals must pass a national licensure exam in order to gain the credit of Occupational Therapist Registered (OTR). Before students can sit for the national exam, they must also complete a master’s degree in the field. Individual boards such as the National Board for Certifying Occupational Therapy also offer voluntary certification options that can increase career opportunities.

In occupational therapy bachelor’s programs, students learn about topics like anatomy, human development and health services management. The occupational therapy field is expected to see much faster than average employment growth.

Papillary Breast Cancer: Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center #papillary #breast #cancer, #papillary #breast #cancer #johns

Papillary Breast Cancer

Papillary Breast Cancer Diagnosis

Papillary breast cancer is a very rare type of invasive ductal breast cancer that accounts for fewer than 1% of all breast cancers. The name comes from finger-like projections, or papules. which are seen when the cells are looked at under the microscope.

Many papillary tumors are benign. These are called papillomas. Even when a biopsy is negative for cancer, the pathologist often needs to look at the whole tumor under the microscope to be sure about the diagnosis. This is why surgery to remove a papilloma is usually recommended, even if it is thought to be benign.

Malignant papillary tumors are a form of breast cancer. Like other types of invasive ductal cancer, papillary breast cancer begins in the milk duct of the breast. Most of the time, papillary breast cancers include both in situ cells (which have not yet spread outside of the duct) and invasive cells (which have begun to spread outside of the duct).

Papillary breast cancers are usually small, and positive for the estrogen and/or progesterone receptors (ER/PR+) and negative for the HER2 receptor (HER2-). Compared to more common types of breast cancers, papillary breast cancers are less likely to involve the lymph nodes, are more responsive to treatment, and may have a better prognosis than more common types of invasive ductal cancer.

Papillary Breast Cancer Treatment

Local therapy is aimed at preventing the cancer from coming back in the breast. Local therapy includes surgery (lumpectomy or mastectomy), and may include radiation.

Systemic therapy is used to prevent the disease from coming back or spreading to another part of the body. This may include endocrine (hormone) therapy, chemotherapy, and therapy that targets the HER2 protein. Often different types of treatment are used together to achieve the best result.

Your treatment plan will be based on the features of the tumor (type of cells, tumor grade, hormone receptor status, and HER2 status) and the stage of the disease (tumor size and node status). Your oncology team will recommend a treatment plan based on what is known about papillary breast cancer in general and tailored to your specific disease.

We know that it can be stressful to receive a diagnosis of breast cancer, and learning that you have a rare form of the disease can add to your anxiety. We hope it will be reassuring to know that our team at the Center for Rare Breast Tumors is dedicated to latest research and treatment of papillary breast cancer, and is here to support patients and their families through diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship.
