Good summary of Anal Cancer

Type: 
Article
Description: 

Anal cancer is a malignancy occurring in the anus or anal orifice: the endmost gastrointestinal tract opening. It is where solid waste exits the body and it has two sphincter muscles. Usually, this cancer is a squamous cell carcinoma of either a keratinizing or non-keratinizing nature. It is a very rare cancer type that manifests symptoms similar to hemorrhoids. This is one of the reasons why this condition is diagnosed late; some anal cancer patients mistake it for simple hemorrhoids.

Dirty Bombshell: From Thyroid Cancer Back to Fabulous!

Type: 
Book
Description: 

When I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, I tried seeking out books on the subject. I was a bit disappointed to learn that there wasn't a whole bunch of written information to choose from. However, I found Lorna Brunelle's "Dirty Bombshell: From Thyroid Cancer Back to Fabulous!" book truly invaluable. It has valuable information, light humor, dark humor, poignant reflections, and everything in between! In 2 weeks I'll be receiving my I-131 radioactive treatment and I'm happy to say that I am less afraid and more informed than I was before reading this book. Lorna's eloquent ability to chronicle all of her fears, vulnerabilities, and experiences in this book has made thyroid cancer a lot less intimidating. Thank you, Lorna and God bless!
