Ivanhoe's Top 5 Reports This Week


PHOENIX, Ariz. (Ivanhoe Newswire) — A surgeon in Arizona removed a 17 centimeter ovarian tumor through an incision smaller than a dime. He used a controversial procedure called in bag morcellation, where the tumor is bagged while it’s still inside the body. Then, it’s broken up and removed. Morcellation has been criticized because of its potential for spreading cancer cells. This doctor believes he has all but eliminated the risk.

PHOENIX, Ariz. (Ivanhoe Newswire) — Researchers at the University of Arizona are studying a so-called “orphan” disease; that’s anything but rare in one part of the United States. Most people who get it are barely affected … others develop life-threatening symptoms, sometimes months later. A third of pneumonia cases near Phoenix and Tucson turn out to be Valley Fever, and even visitors are at risk.

TAMPA, Fla. (Ivanhoe Newswire) — A medical breakthrough could be on the way for a rare cancer with no effective treatment. Ocular melanoma strikes 2,000 Americans each year. Now a new treatment could possibly put a stop to the spread of this disease.

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (Ivanhoe Newswire) — Cardiac amyloidosis, also called stiff heart, occurs when abnormal proteins build up and settle in body tissues. If these amyloid proteins travel to the heart, it can be deadly, and sometimes the only option for survival is a heart transplant.

ATLANTA, Ga. (Ivanhoe Newswire) — Chronic anxiety can have a powerful impact on the body, causing severe headaches, digestive disorders, and a weakened immune system.  It can also be one cause of a little-known condition that mimics epilepsy, with some jarring side effects.
