Oncologist Lists Possible Signs Of Cancer Men Shouldn’t Ignore

In an article in the New York Daily News (1/27, Samadi), Dr. David Samadi, a board-certified urologic oncologist, lists 12 symptoms that could be a sign of cancer in men, encouraging men not to ignore these symptoms. “The sooner a man recognizes possible symptoms of cancer and gets it checked out, the better the chances of survival,” writes Dr. Samadi. “Early diagnosis is key.” Dr. Samadi includes changes in the mouth, particularly having white or red patches, in his list of possible signs of cancer, recommending men “see a dentist regularly who can notice these changes.” Additional symptoms that may be a sign of cancer in men include pain or difficulty urinating, pelvic pain, changes in intestinal or bowel habits, fatigue, shortness of breath, unintentional weight loss, abnormal skin growths, and fever or night sweats, among others.

Flossing Still Beneficial For Oral Health

In the Chicago Sun-Times (1/17), Drs. Eve Glazier and Elizabeth Ko with UCLA Health respond to a reader’s question about the benefits of flossing. Drs. Glazier and Ko state that although an AP story questioned the benefits of the practice due to a lack of research, the story also “didn’t offer evidence that flossing doesn’t work,” and dentists still encourage cleaning between teeth to remove plaque and debris. Drs. Glazier and Ko add that when flossing is done properly, Dr. Matthew Messina, a spokesperson for the American Dental Association, “says it remains the most effective way to remove damaging plaque from those hard-to-reach inner surfaces of your teeth.”

KFDA-TV Amarillo, TX (1/18, Ramirez) reports that despite a lack of strong evidence, “local dentists are stressing the importance of flossing.” A local periodontist says, “Flossing is very important to maintain the health of your gums, your teeth, and in general your health.”

FDA Now Offers Consumer Page On Opioids

The ADA News (1/20) reported that the Food and Drug Administration has a new consumer page listing questions for patients to ask their physicians, dentists, and other healthcare professionals before taking opioid painkillers. The new page also offers tips on opioid prescription storage and disposal. The article notes, “The ADA encourages dentists to talk to their patients about the dangers of using opioid painkillers for nonmedical purposes.” The ADA also “offers free continuing education courses to members and nonmembers alike that cover the latest techniques for recognizing when a patient may be seeking opioids for nonmedical purposes, and how to briefly counsel and refer those patients for appropriate substance abuse treatment.”

Toothbrushes Among Household Items That Need Replacing

Today Show Online (1/17) discusses how often “six common household items,” including toothbrushes, need to be replaced. TODAY states that “old and frayed” toothbrushes do not clean teeth as well, noting the ADA recommends replacing toothbrushes every three to four months. TODAY adds “the ADA also advises that children’s toothbrushes typically need to be replaced more often than adult brushes,” encouraging people to “keep a regular eye” on their toothbrush bristles and “update accordingly.
