Reducing Pain via
Hypnosis, This Week on Your Cancer Today (TM)
Medical professionals have long sought new treatments for reducing
the pain, anxiety, and discomfort associated with cancer
surgery. A new therapy, based on hypnosis,
is currently being tested as a method to alleviate many of
the side effects of surgery.
Your Cancer Today interviews Guy H. Montgomery, PhD,
from the Mt. Sinai School of Medicine. Dr. Montgomery's
study looked at two groups of patients facing surgery for
breast cancer. The group
that received hypnosis prior to surgery reported less
pain, nausea, and anxiety after surgery than
the control group.
There was a cost benefit as well, the average hypnosis
patient reduced the cost of treatment by an average of
$772.00. Dr. Montgomery is optimistic that hypnosis will
provide similar health and financial benefits with other
forms of cancer.
How prevalent is head and neck cancer? What are the risk
factors? Dr Stan Wasbin, Medical Director for Your
Cancer Today, provides an overview of head and neck cancer,
including the fact that men are 3 times as likely to
contract head and neck cancer as women.
A new treatment protocol for head and neck cancer is proving
more effective than traditional treatment. The new treatment
features the use of Taxotere(R) and has resulted in a 30%
decrease in mortality in head and neck cancer patients. Dr.
Marshall Posner, from the Dana-Farber Cancer Center provides
the results of his study on head and neck cancer. Dr. Posner
reports that the cure rate for many of these cancers is now
greater than 80%.
