Early the detection the key to saving lives With breast cancer continuing to be found in younger women every day, early detection is becoming the best tool to surviving the dreaded disease. As the country somberly recognizes Breast Cancer Awareness Week, one of the themes of this important occasion is that early detection saves lives. Although the commonly accepted belief is that breast cancer only affects women in their 40s and 50s, studies are proving that the disease is becoming more prevelant in women in their 20s and 30s. Connie Davis of Grassroots Natural Health and Wellness, a business that specializes in using thermography to find diseases such as breast cancer in its early stages, says she has noticed a definite trend with respect to age. “The incidence of breast cancer in young women is on the rise,” she said. “There are a lot of women being diagnosed in their 30s and 40s.” Davis noted there a number of ways people can have themselves screened for cancer. She became involved in thermography after losing her sister to the disease and learning that early detection might have saved her life. “She was diagnosed in her mid 40s and she was at Stage 4 so that meant the cancer had been growing there for at least 10 years,” she said. “Because mammograms aren’t started for breast cancer until age 50, a lot of women will be diagnosed with cancer without ever having been examined. “Thermography, because there is no radia-

There is nothing that is going into the body. Thermal imaging actually radiates the thermal energy that is coming from the body. We are looking at the aspect of the activity which is the blood supply that will be feeding an active growing tumour. Because we can see that activity five to eight years be-

fore a mammogram can detect a lump or structure, we have that amount of time that we can be monitoring or help that person make lifestyle changes that can slow down the progress of the tumour.” Davis said thermography can also help diagnose types of cancer that mammograms cannot detect such as inflammatory breast cancer. She encourages women to begin getting tested in their mid 20s, noting that if a woman is diagnosed in her mid 30s, the cancer could have started when they were in their 20s. “We have heard of

cases, we haven’t seen this in our clinic, of breast cancer in children, as young as eight to 10-years-old,” Davis said. “There are things happening out there that we need to be aware of any type of lump in the breast or any kind of anomaly in the breast has to be checked out. The youngest child we have checked out for a breast lump was 12-yearsold. Fortunately it was a cyst.” Davis feels families also have a huge role to play in early detection. She said it is important for mothers to get educated about breast cancer, not only for their own benefit, but also so they can pass that information along to their daughters. “We like to see women doing their monthly breast exam as early as they possibly can. We need to get the word out and we like to teach people how to do

that and different things to look for. “Awareness is extremely important. There was a young girl in Regina who developed breast cancer, the type that presents on the outside of the breast, it’s called Paget’s disease of the breast which doesn’t generally occur in young

women. “She was too embarrassed to show it to her mom. She thought it was a pimple to start with, and by the time she showed it to her mom it was pretty advanced. This is one reason why it is very important to be educating our young women.” That education must also extend to men, Davis says. The cases of men developing breast cancer are also on the rise, with one per cent of all breast cancers occurring in males. “Men don’t even consider that they have breasts, they think they have pecs,” she said. “It’s usually not detected until the late stages because men don’t pay attention and it totally gets missed. It’s sad. Men don’t even think they can develop breast cancer because we don’t talk about it, but it is out there.” Along with education, Davis points out that people cannot be afraid of the disease and more importantly, cannot let the fear of finding out they have cancer prevent them from getting checked. “Knowledge is power and if there is something growing you have a better chance of dealing with it and having a better outcome, hopefully.”

Earlier Detection With

Thermography • Thermography detects the subtle physiologic changes that accompany breast pathology whether it is cancer, Àbrocystic disease, infection, or a vascular disease. • It takes years for a tumor to grow, thus the earliest possible indication of abnormality is needed to allow for the earliest possible intervention and treatment. Thermography’s role in monitoring breast health is to help in early detection of abnormal physiology. • The beneÀt of Thermography is that it offers the opportunity of earlier detection of breast disease than has been possible through breast self examination, doctor examination or mammography alone.

Final outdoor farmers’ market on Saturday

Mayor Gary St. Onge said the City may be nearing a settlement with Estevan resident Cheryl Alexus. Alexus is the local woman whose basement flooded during a storm in June that led to roughly $40,000 in damage. A story on how the flood occurred and the resulting battle over who should be responsible for the damages appeared in the Sept.

Last year the vendors decided to try a one Saturday market event at the Exhibition Hall the weekend prior to Easter, but it has not been determined yet as to whether or not they wish to plan one prior to the 2011 Easter weekend. Market management said that decision will rest with the vendors themselves, and they will make that decision at their annual general meeting which is usually scheduled in late January or early February. Whether or not there is an Easter season market, it is assured that the outdoor market will be back in operation on the first weekend in May next year and it is expected that similar arrangements can be made to hold the markets in the same location as this year. Early indications are that the Estevan Farmers’ Market enjoyed another successful year following a record-breaking year in 2009.

29 edition of The Mercury and on-line at St. Onge said the members of council met with Alexus and her boyfriend Tim Wishart Monday night before the regular meeting of council. Although he declined to go into details, St. Onge said he thinks a resolution is forthcoming. “It will come out, I’ll put it that way,” he said.

“We can’t say what it is tonight. Within the next two weeks you will hear what happened.” Asked if the City has reached a deal with Alexus, St. Onge said “I think so. We haven’t talked back to her yet, but there was a suggestion made so it will be coming out. “It was a bad, unfortunate situation and I am sure both sides will learn from it.”

Settlement near in Alexus matter?

Christmas season market indoors is next This Saturday will mark the final day of outdoor marketing for the Estevan Farmers’ Market. The market generally conducts its final outside market on the Thanksgiving weekend, so this will be the last opportunity for local market supporters to make their way to the market stalls that will be located on the east side of the Estevan Shoppers’ Mall parking lot. The market is open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Farmers’ Market will begin a series of pre-Christmas buying opportunities beginning on Saturday, November 27, and running through each succeeding Saturday before Christmas, including December 18. The Christmas season markets usually open at 10 a.m. and they are held in the Exhibition Hall on the Estevan Exhibition grounds. After the Christmas season, the markets takes a break.

Meeting Your Year Round Needs for Rental Equipment, Sales & Service

While the Estevan Elks were celebrating their 85th year of operation in the Energy City, they took time out to pay tribute to four long-standing members who have contributed to the club over many years. Exalted Ruler Art Dougherty noted on Saturday night during the anniversary celebration that John Walliser had logged the longest service record

with the club at 60 years, while members of the 50year team included Ray Frehlick and Dave Matchett of Estevan and Lowell Liesch of Alameda. Each of the four men will receive pins to commemorate their contributions. Matchett was on hand to receive his pin in person while the others were unable to attend due to other obligations.
