Every year, the indoor-tanning industry makes approximately 5 billion dollars (Wingert). Tanning attracts all different kinds of people for numerous reasons. People want that crisp glow and dark skin that is not always offered during every season. There are individuals who believe tanning is beneficial; however, others believe that tanning is not healthy because of research. It is proven through research that tanning can lead in negative outcomes because of the strength of the rays, decreased vitamin D, and the increased risk for Skin Cancer.
Cigarette, cigar and pipe smoking are the main forms of tobacco use in many parts of the world. Alcohol increases the risk of mouth cancer, and if tobacco and alcohol are taken together the risk is greater. According to the American Cancer Society, men face twice the risk of developing oral cancer as women, and men who are over age 50 face the greatest risk. It’s estimated that over 40,000 people in the U.S. received a diagnosis of oral cancer in 2014. It is important to note that over 25% of all oral cancers occur in people who do not smoke
Based on research I have found the illness that comes close in my opinion to what this patient is suffering from is lung cancer. With the loss in weight within the past 5 years and the domed finger nails that has been statistically shown to appear as a symptom of lung cancer in 3 out of every 10 patients. Along with the 54 years of cigarette smoking and damage that may have been suffered during his war imprisonment in Vietnam, there are many red flags for this illness. Tobacco use is the major cause of lung cancer primarily with cigarette smoke as cancer cells may have acquired genetic lesions. Lung cancer being the leading cause in all cancer deaths with 28% in men and 26% in women with the peak age being between ages 55 and
INTRODUCTION The worldwide rate of cervical cancer has come down to two-fifth of what it was 50 years ago, mainly due to effective Pap smear screening1. However, 75% of the new cases are reported to occur in the developing countries, mainly due to ineffective screening programmes or lack of awareness. It is the most common neoplasm among Indian women and accounts for 20–50% of all cancers in India and 80–85% of female genital cancers in India2. India has significant socio-demographic risk factors and unhealthy clinical findings for cervical carcinoma. With modern methods of cervical screening like liquid cytology, the effectiveness of Pap smear, a screening modality of lower sensitivity, is now in question.
INTRODUCTION Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women (WHO, 2013). A growing number of patients with breast cancer at medical institutions experience more problems related to treatment methods and side effects of the early and the late postoperative stages. To reduce physical and psychological discomfort during the treatment physiotherapists are required to be qualified and to have specific theoretical and practical knowledge about these patients treatment. According to “Lithuanian Cancer Registry” data in 2011 of all malignant tumors 18 % were diagnosed as breast cancer. In addition to this, 1541 new breast cancer cases were diagnosed, morbidity was 72,3 per 100000 women.
Nursing burnout is the major cause of patients that have died from acquiring infection during hospital stay. The risk factors of burnout lead to cognitive detachment in nurses, resulting failure to perform adequate hand hygiene and other infection preventive measures. The study presented that for every 10% increase in nursing burnout, the rate of catheter associated urinary tract infections increased one per 1,000 patients, and surgical site infections increased more than two per 1,000 patients every year. Over 1/3 of the nurses surveyed, estimate that reducing the burnout rate of 10% would prevent over 4,000 infections per year, and also eliminate the associated monetary cost of these infections.

The most uncommon type of skin cancer is known as melanoma. Although it’s unfamiliar it is the most dangerous type of skin cancer. It accounts for numerous types of deaths globally. In the United States, melanoma has been the cause of death for eighty one percent of the patients who are diagnosed with the sickness. Statistically, about fifteen percent of the patients diagnosed with melanoma live for about three to five years.
Automated Melanoma Classification: A Literature Review Introduction A Melanoma is a skin cancer with the highest mortality rate and one of the most common cancers in young adults. Since 1973 the incidences of melanomas has increased by 150% and the mortality rate by 44%. Although melanoma survival rates are poorer than those of other skin cancers, if detected earlier their treatment is more effective (Jain & Jain, 2012). However there is a significant number of cases where melanomas, some of which could have been removed though excisions, were not diagnosed correctly. The diagnostic sensitivity ranges from 66% to 81% for dermatologist and it is believed to be lower for nondermatologists (Stanley et al., 2008).
III. Daptomycin, Linezolid and Rifampin Combination Therapy for MRSA Meningitis and Bacteremia MRSA Meningitis is an uncommon cause of bacterial meningitis accounting for about 10% of all cases. Recently, there has been an increase in that number, which is worrying since MRSA Meningitis is related to high mortality, rates (Kelesidis et al, 2011). Combining the daptomycin, rifampin, and linezolid has also been identified as an effective way of treating and preventing the MRSA meningitis and bacteremia in most patients (Chambers, 2001). This treatment was found effective especially for patients that are allergic to the Vancomycin.
Epidemiology Giardiasis is a global disease. It infects nearly 2% of the adults and 6% to 8% of children in developed countries worldwide. Nearly 33% of people in developing countries have had giardiasis. In the United States, Giardia infection is the most common intestinal parasitic disease affecting humans (Kappus et.al., 1994). Between 2006-2008 in the United States, known cases of giardiasis were twice as high between June to October as they were between January to March (CDC, 2010).
