Virtual Environment Education Reduces Anxiety Prior to Radiation Therapy in Prostate Cancer Patients

Radiation therapists and physicians know that education can reduce anxiety before radiation treatment but lack a standardized tool. In an effort to solve this problem, a multidisciplinary team from Jefferson College of Health Professions and the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Thomas Jefferson University conducted a pilot study to see if a virtual environment education program could reduce some of the anxiety their patients face. They published their results in the Journal of Radiation Oncology.

New Study: Pre-Pregnancy BMI Directly Linked to Excess Pregnancy Weight Gain

It’s well known that excessive weight gain during pregnancy can have a lasting negative impact on the health of a mother and her baby. A new University of Michigan-led study finds that for young mothers (women who gave birth between the ages of 15 and 24), pre-pregnancy body mass index, or BMI, and ethnicity might signal a likelihood for obesity later in life.

Active Surveillance Preserves Quality of Life for Prostate Cancer Patients

Faced with the negative quality-of-life effects from surgery and radiation treatments for prostate cancer, low risk patients may instead want to consider active surveillance with their physician, according to a study released Tuesday by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
