    • Getting a Read on Cancer Risk

      It should come as no surprise that in the same way we inherit many family traits, the risk of cancer may also pass from generation to generation. “So if we can identify any genetic mutation that we can use later on for therapy, it would be hugely beneficial,” says Dr. Samith Sandadi, who is a gynecologic oncologist on medical staff of Lee Memorial Health System. Doctors have long understood there was a genetic link to many cancers - including colorectal, breast, ovarian and uterine. But only recently tests were developed to look at the DNA fingerprints. The most well known screening involves the BRCA gene mutation. “It gives you a better overall picture of your risk of getting not only breast cancer, but gynecologic cancers,” says Dr. Sandadi. Looking into the genetics of cancer is not a far-fetched idea. The technology is available locally and more people are taking advantage. Mary Ann Orlang is a genetic counselor with Lee Memorial Health System’s Regional Cancer Center. “What I do is talk to women, men, who think they might be at risk for cancer, or they have already been diagnosed with cancer. We do a family tree and determine a criterion for genetic testing,” says Orlang. Tests involve either a blood or saliva sample. The cancer center screens for a handful of genetically-linked diseases including BRCA and Lynch syndrome, along with rare mutations that may lead to cancer. “We’ve learned so much more about the genetic link so we’re able to provide testing for people at risk,” says Orlang. Getting a read on risk can help doctors specialize treatment, or provide patients a chance to closely monitor or take preventative steps. “By employing these screening tests early and by counseling them on risk-reducing strategies, we can decrease the incidence of ovarian cancer,” says Dr. Sandadi. An inherited predisposition for cancer is information that can and should be passed down the family tree.

        Hi! I’m Niki………a forty something Brit living in NC, USA. A self-confessed “fresh air junkie” and totally imperfect wife and mother. My diagnosis with rectal cancer was a complete surprise. I’d just lost my sister to lung cancer, so when I was told that I too had cancer the bottom fell out of my world… and then the world fell out of my bottom! I felt naked and vulnerable. Stripped of all I knew to be safe and secure. I was frightened, and despite being surrounded by the tangible love of the people around me. I felt naked. BUTT naked! Go Butt Naked is a call to everyone everywhere to stand in solidarity with CRC cancer survivors and “go butt naked” – meaning give up and strip off something “extra” that makes you feel safe and secure. You can then donate the amount you would have spent to www.Chris4Life.org/gobuttnaked to find a cure, raise awareness and help survivors. Then share a fun picture of what you “didn’t do” on the Go Butt Naked Facebook page. The goal is to raise $10,000 in March. That’s 100 of us donating $100 or 500 of us donating $20. Find me on www.nikihardy.com
