Cancer Research Awareness Week

Thanks to research we now understand more about how to catch cancer early, what causes it and how best to treat it.

You can do many things to get involved in Cancer Research, from fundraising through races, bake sales or garage sales to raising awareness on social media.

In the UK I was a strong advocate for Cancer Research, completing annual fundraising races. Now in Australia, I am honoured to have been certified by the Australasian College of Dermatologists to actively perform skin cancer checks and removals.

With your continued support for research together WE WILL beat Cancer.

If you have any questions or concerns about cancer or simply need some support, please come by and see me in clinic.

Take care and stay healthy 😊

Schizophrenia Awareness Week 🧠

Schizophrenia is a medical condition that affects the normal functioning of a person’s brain. Some people do recover and with time some find their symptoms improve, however for many it can be a prolonged illness. Approximately 1 in 100 people will develop it in their lives.

The symptoms can include confused thinking, delusions and hallucinations such as hearing voices that are not actually there.

We don’t yet fully know what causes Schizophrenia but we know that it could be due to a combination of genetics and possible environmental factors, such as the use of drugs.

Schizophrenia is treated using medication and community support programmes. Treatment is necessary to reduce or even eliminate the symptoms.

If you or a family member are concerned about Schizophrenia or would like more information, please pop by and see me in clinic.

Take care and stay healthy 😊

Today is World Lupus Day.

Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body including the skin, joints and organs.

What is an autoimmune disease?

Normally, in our bodies our immune system protects us from bacteria and viruses by producing special proteins to fight these off. In a person who suffers from an autoimmune disease, the immune system isn’t able to tell the difference between a foreign invader and the body’s healthy tissue which can cause inflammation.

At least 5 million people are thought to be affected world wide.

Lupus commonly affects women of child bearing age but can also affect children and men.

Lupus can cause a number of symptoms ranging from a facial rash to debilitating fatigue to joint pain. A common myth is that Lupus is contagious and is similar to HIV. This is not the case at all and often understanding of this complex disease is quite limited.

Diagnosis can sometimes be difficult due to the intermittent nature of symptoms. It is best diagnosed with a number of different medical professionals including the General Practitioner.

There is no current cure for Lupus, however it can be managed successfully with treatment. Treatment is aimed at reducing symptoms and preventing long term organ damage.

World Lupus Day aims to promote the impact that Lupus has on people and in turn bring more resources to end the suffering from this disease.

If you are concerned about Lupus or have any further questions, feel free to pop by and see me in clinic.

Take care and stay healthy 😊

February is Ovarian Cancer month.

It is estimated that in Australia there will be over 1000 new cases of Ovarian cancer in 2018. Ovarian cancer happens when the cells in one or both of the ovaries become abnormal and change into cancer.

The symptoms of Ovarian cancer can overlap with other less serious health problems. But there are four types of symptoms that occur most frequently: - abdominal or pelvic pain

- persistent bloating

- needing to urinate frequently

- feeling full after eating small amounts

Other symptoms to be aware of are:

- change in bowel habit

- unexplained weight gain or weightloss

- irregular bleeding

- back pain

- nausea

- fatigue

- pain during intercourse.

Treatment is best managed by a gynaecologist and may include chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

If you are concerned or have any of the above symptoms, come and see me in clinic today for a check up.

Let’s take action and raise awareness.

Take care & stay healthy 😊
