    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The 76ers are showing their support for one of their assistant coaches who’s still recovering from cancer treatments. The Sixers are making a donation to Jefferson Health and Kimmel Cancer Center, that’s where the coach was treated. The contribution is aimed at early detection, which is the key to survival.

Joerger is talking about the radiation and chemotherapy he had for head and neck cancer. “Certainly a moment that I will never forget, you know, hearing the diagnosis,” Joerger said. “The radiation in the neck, the mouth area, you know, my tastebuds are coming back slowly. There are things that are different now.” He returned to the team in February after being diagnosed in October. The 47-year-old is part of a new trend. “This is one of the cancers that’s becoming more common currently,” Dr. David M....
    Most smokers diagnosed with head and neck cancer were still puffing on cigarettes two years after treatment, a new study finds. Researchers at the University of Minnesota, in Minneapolis, tracked 89 people in their 60s who smoked at least five cigarettes a day when they were diagnosed.  Of the 61 who were still alive two years after treatment, as many as 38 — or 60 percent — were still smokers. The researcher team suggested many failed to give up smoking because they went 'cold turkey' at diagnosis — cutting out all cigarettes — risking a relapse. They called for smokers who were suffering from cancer to be offered counselling and medication to help them quit the habit. Smokers with the cancers were three times more likely to quit in the first six months after diagnosis than at any other time, they said. The above graph shows the proportion of patients with head or neck cancer that were still smoking (dark blue) or had quit (brown area) from six to 24 months following treatment The above shows the proportion of patients...
    HOLLYOAKS’ Abi Phillips has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer, after suffering one key symptom.

She urged others to push for answers if they are concerned about symptoms. Abi found lumps - one of the key signs of cancer - in her neck. But she claims doctors had “sent her away”, passing it off as a side effect of an infection or cold. Only around one in 20 lumps in the neck are cancer, the NHS says, but it’s always important to get it checked out. Abi wrote: “They'd passed it off and said I was 'young' and it wouldn't be anything.” But Abi was cautious that she...
    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4)– We may wind down with a glass of wine after work, but alcohol is a major risk factor for head and neck cancer. So are all tobacco products. In addition to that, 70% of cancers in the back of the throat are linked to HPV, according to the CDC. (credit: Getty Images) Dr. Paul Van der Sloot is a surgeon with the head and neck surgical specialty group at Swedish Medical Center. He says there are ways to prevent it. “You know, I think those are probably the key elements to think about. Obviously, I think it’s pretty common knowledge at this point that we shouldn’t smoke. The combination is really a bad one. So avoiding those… that’s important.” If you’ve already had cancer, cutting out tobacco and alcohol can keep it from returning. But prevention with the HPV vaccine it a tool Dr. Van der Sloot recommends we all get. “Initially when [it]came out, it was primarily young, women and girls who got it. Now it’s moved on that all men and women, girls and boys...

Most adults will be infected with HPV at some point in their life, and their body will flush it out within a couple of years without...

Student Layla Phillips, 22, was diagnosed with Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma two years ago while studying in Swansea.

Hannah Potter thought her little girl, Flo, had a minor injury after climbing trees and playing. 4Hannah Potter and her daughter Flo, who was found to have a very rare cancer The six-year-old started to complain of an ache in July but within a few weeks couldn't get off the sofa by herself.

Hannah told Birmingham Live: "She was blue lighted to Leicester and the surgeon said she didn't think it could be that as the pain was ongoing for five weeks. "They thought it could be a compacted bowel but one young doctor kept...
