This issue looks at some promising diagnostic approaches that could make cancer easier to detect and monitor .
Blood-based tests , for instance , are already providing doctors with useful information to help them select the therapy most likely to be effective and to predict relapse . The hope is that this technique will soon be used as a screening tool for healthy people in order to prognosticate cancer or diagnose it at an early stage when it ’ s easier to treat . The jury is still out on whether it can be applied in the clinic , so stay tuned .
Breath testing is another non-invasive cancer detection method raising hopes of improved diagnosis in the early stages . Researchers have already proved that breath analysis can pinpoint patients with several malignancies , including oesophageal , gastric , and head and neck cancers . But larger studies are needed to reinforce the findings . If successful , the approach could streamline diagnosis by offering a complement to biopsies , a standard diagnostic procedure that tests bits of surgically extracted cells in the lab .
In the holistic health section , we cover people who have deep anxieties about climate change and the positive impacts that occur in their mental health when they join in collective action to improve the environment . According to the World Health Organization , this is a serious issue that poses risks to mental health and well-being .
We also offer some advice for women on sex after birth — how , when , and if new mothers should resume intimacy with their partners .
