Winter Park / Maitland Observer | Thursday, Oct. 16, 2014 | Page 11 Ask Your Doctor: Is a Prostate Screening Test Right For You?By Kimberly M. Hicks, Clinical Pharmacy Specialist and OWC Director A blood test called the PSA (prostatespecific antigen) screens for prostate cancer. There is also a test called Prostate Health Index (PHI). Some men get the PSA test annually starting at about age 40 or 50 and con tinuing until age 75. However, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends against screening with the PSA for the general population due to concerns of false-positives. The PSA test is more appropriate for those at higher risk for prostate cancer, which includes those who have: prostate cancer before age 60 prostate cancer before age 75 Positive PSA test results whats next? A positive result on a PSA test doesnt always mean cancer. In fact, in most cases it does not and indicates another condition, such as an enlarged or inflamed prostate gland. According to the National Cancer Institute, of men with an elevated PSA who undergo a prostate biopsy, only 25% end up actually having prostate cancer. If your PSA test comes back positive, follow-up tests will be ordered, such as a second PSA test or the PHI test. The PHI test checks for several forms of prostatespecific antigens in the blood and combines their levels using a mathematical formula to greatly improve the screening predic tions related to the risk of prostate cancer. In addition, the PHI predicts the likelihood of whether a particular prostate cancer is progressive, needing immediate treatment, or could benefit from watchful waiting instead. After these tests, a prostate biopsy might be considered. The goal is for only the patients at high est risk to undergo a biopsy and, if need, treatment for prostate cancer. Some tumors grow so slowly that theyre unlikely to ever be life-threatening. Surgery and other types of treatment can have some side effects, including loss of erectile function and urinary incontinence, so an oncologist may elect to monitor the tumor unless, or until, it becomes a problem. Prostate cancer survival rates high The Mayo Clinic indicates that prostate cancer is the most common kind of nonskin cancer in older men and is the second leading cause of cancer-related death in men, with lung cancer being the first. As with all cancer, early detection is the key to treating and surviving prostate cancer, The American Cancer Society reports that when prostate cancer is detected in the very earliest stage, the 5-year survival rate is 100 percent. Once the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes and other parts of the body, the 5-year survival rate plunges to 28 percent.

Winter Park / Maitland Observer | Thursday, Oct. 16, 2014 | Page 13 They do exist! Negative-calorie foods are fruits and vegetables with a low gly cemic index that your body uses more calories digesting than the foods actual calorie content. They sound like an urban legend, dont they? Too good to be true? Luckily for all of us, theyre real seri ously! Besides being somewhat of a holy grail for snackers everywhere, they have a host of other positive traits that make them worth the eort of digestion: They have a high-ber content, so you feel full longer than with other foods. They karate chop cravings and hunger pangs. They boost your metabolism and enzyme production to help your body burn fat rather than store fat. They give you more energy. Sure, theyll make you run to the potty a bit more, but as mild diuretics, theyll help rid you of excess water. They help lower blood cholesterol levels. They balance your blood-sugar levels, so you dont bite any heads o when you crash. They help cleanse your liver so you can burn fat more eectively. They improve circulation and reduce inammation. They cleanse your colon (think ber) and improve digestion. They are no-fat/guilt-free snacks (so long as you dont roll them in sugar, bread them and fry them, or slather condiments or cheese all over them) So, what exactly are these angels of the food realm? Heres a list: Veggies Asparagus, bean sprouts, beets, broc coli, cabbage, carrots, cauliower, celery, chicory/radicchio, cucumbers, endives, green beans, jicama, kale, leeks, lettuce, radishes, spinach, squash, tomatoes, tur nips, zucchini. Fruits Apples, blueberries, cantaloupe, cranberries, grapefruit, honeydew mel ons, lemons, limes, mangoes, oranges, papaya, peaches, pineapple, raspberries, strawberries, tangerines, watermelon. Herbs and Spices Anise, cayenne, chili peppers, cinna mon, cloves, coriander/cilantro, cumin, dill, fennel seeds, ax seeds, garden cress, garlic, ginger, parsley onion, mustard seeds, watercress. So, heres the thing: You have to eat 2 to 3 pounds of these foods a day to lose a large amount of weight. And dont juice them; theyre more eective eaten whole (preferably raw or lightly steamed). And feel free to combine and mix them, just dont mix them with butter and other fatty foods or youre negating the point. Lots of people think that raw veggies equal tasteless, blah veggies, but thats not the case. Give them a try raw or light ly steamed and taste the dierence. Its amazing how tasty these foods are all by themselves once you get used to eating them this way. You dont have to put yourself on a meal plan of nothing but negativecalorie foods to lose weight though, so dont panic! Add some to a dinner of lean protein and a side of healthy grains. How about a bowl of fresh strawberries for dessert? When you need a mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack, reach for some thing on one of these lists instead of a granola bar or other quick snack. Lots of fruits and veggies are easy and portable to snack on! If we havent helped you set up a per sonal tness plan yet, come see us! Work some of these healthy favorites into your daily meals and snacks, get busy work ing on your tness, and youll see results. You dont have to starve to lose weight. In fact, the keys to healthy weight loss are nutritious, whole foods and tness train ing, so make a note of the foods on this list and keep them stocked. Eat smart and you wont have to be hungry.
