NFL Jerseys Cheap Authentic according toDr. Surendra PersaudDr. Persaud

– Dr. Surendra PersaudOver the centuries breast cancer has remained a leading cause of death among women, with available statistics revealing that it is the number two most deadly form of cancer in Guyana, with cervical cancer taking its place at the top of the list.This is according to General Surgeon and Director of Caribbean Surgery, Dr. Surendra Persaud, who has over the years been operating out of Woodlands Hospital and St. Joseph Mercy.With a keen eye on the potentially deadly infliction,Discount NFL Jerseys, Dr. Persaud has maintained over the years that “the earlier we can find a woman with breast cancer the better are her chances of surviving.”This is possible even in light of the fact that there is yet no cure for any form of cancer, but rather patients can go into remission.“Five years after you would have been diagnosed with cancer and you are still alive, this is what we regard as being in remission…”And there has been growing success in Guyana when it comes to addressing the disease, according toDr. Surendra PersaudDr. Persaud, who revealed that the various types of diagnostic tests and treatments are readily available here when compared to about a decade ago.He confidently asserted that everything that is needful to address breast cancer, right down to the screening process, is readily available in Guyana.  The screening process is especially important when addressing some forms of cancer, as according to the expert physician, this could help to detect cancer at hopefully an even earlier stage, allowing for it to be tackled in a timely manner.“If we are able to detect breast cancer in a woman at Stage One instead of Stage Four her survival is much better, so that is why screening is so important.”Screening, Dr. Persaud explained, generally has three parts when it comes to breast cancer. This,Wholesale Stitched Jerseys, he said, includes self breast examination, which as the term suggests is done by the woman herself; clinical breast examination which is done by a clinician who exams women’s breast on a regular basis and then there is the mammogram.However, in Guyana there seems to be an overuse of ultrasonography in breast conditions and this is something that physicians are working on, Dr. Persaud added. Ultrasonography has been playing an increasingly important role in the evaluation of breast cancer, and according to researchers it is useful in the evaluation of palpable masses that are mammographically occult in the evaluation of clinically suspected breast lesions in women younger than 30. It is also used in the evaluation of many abnormalities seen on mammograms.Some breast imagers believe that the technique is the primary modality for the evaluation of palpable masses in women 30 years and older while mammography plays an adjunctive technique.But in order to avoid the overuse of the ultrasonography technology, physicians are essentially advocating for women over the age of 18 to start examining their own breasts approximately seven to 10 days after their menstruation, Dr. Persaud noted.However, “although the signs have suggested that there isn’t a tremendous benefit for this, we feel that it is good to have women feel comfortable with their own bodies especially in a country like Guyana where we have some cultural issues about women touching their bodies…”But should this prove to be a problem, Dr. Persaud asserted that women can always rely on a health worker who can afford breast examination at six-month intervals. Nevertheless, an annual mammogram has for years been deemed essential. In fact, according to the expert, “everywhere in the world we agree that women over the age of 50 should have an annual mammogram; not everywhere in the world do we agree that a woman between 40 and 50 should have an annual mammogram.”Guyana, according to Dr. Persaud,Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping, has dared to be different whereby physicians have been requesting that women have a mammogram between the 40 and 50 year-old range.  This has however,cheap nfl jerseys, created a controversy in light of the fact that a number of studies have shown that the earlier a mammogram is taken the benefits may not fully outweigh the risks.“We have found that we may be subjecting a number of women to unnecessary procedures because if you do a mammogram and you see something, you have to pursue it until you are sure.  However,Wholesale Jerseys, most of us feel that it is still a good idea…even though we know there is nothing normal about a woman having to place her breast on a metal plate and have it squeezed…So yes,Cheap Jerseys Online, it is unpleasant and might be painful, so you should also have this done a week to 10 days after your menstrual cycle too.”Giving immense emphasis to the importance of early detection, Dr. Persaud noted that women can access this service at a number of local hospitals to help reduce their risk of dying from cancer.  A mammogram is an x-ray valued at about $6,000 that is examined by a radiologist who decides whether the breast is normal or abnormal at which point the necessary action can be taken, Dr. Persaud explained.
