Thermal Camera at Tourist Attraction Spots Woman's Undiagnosed Breast Cancer – Fstoppers

Health News
A stop at a tourist attraction in Scotland led to a woman discovering her undiagnosed breast cancer, possibly saving her life. Bal Gill, 41, visited the Camera Obscura and World of Illusions in Edinburgh, Scotland in May. While there, she took a picture with the museum's thermal camera, when she noticed a heat spot in her left breast. Gill thought it was strange, noting that no one else had such a spot, and upon seeing it again in her images when she got home, she decided to search the internet for possible causes. This was when she discovered that such a hot spot can be indicative of a tumor (due to increased blood flow and thus, increased heat). She subsequently made an appointment with her doctor, where her breast cancer was confirmed and she began treatment. Gill says the imag...

Most people who died from vaping-related injuries used products containing THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, federal health officials said Friday, offering another data point tying the outbreak of lung illnesses to products made with that compound. Based on data available from 860 of the 1,604 patients who have fallen ill with the disease, about 85 percent reported using THC-containing products, compared to about 10 percent who reported exclusively vaping nicotine-containing products, officials said.Many sick patients said they bought THC vape products on the black market, and those have come under increased scrutiny."The data do continue to point towards THC-containing products as the source of individuals' injury," said Anne Schuchat, principal deputy director at the Center...

Health News
October is recognised worldwide as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Nearly one in eight women in Pakistan is diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime. Most people have at least one loved one who has succumbed to breast cancer. On a positive note, recovery is possible if it is detected and treated in its early stages. However, this can only be accomplished when we realise the importance of breast self-examination (BSE), clinical breast examination (CBE) and mammograms (X-rays of the breasts). This month is a good reminder to spread awareness. BSE is easy and does not require professional expertise. Regular BSE can increase the chances of early detection, which ultimately results in a higher chance of survival. The best time to perform a breast self-examinat...
