Fox News, 4:15, 02/21/2011

Dr. Samadi of the Fox News Medical “A-Team” and Chairman of Urology at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City discusses a variety of topics on this segment.

Serene Branson, a CBS news reporter, has been making news herself recently with what appeared to be a live on-air stroke, but was actually what's called a “complex migraine” or “migraine with aura”.  Complex migraines can mimic symptoms of a transient ischemic attack (TIA) where there's obstruction of vessels and bloodflow to the brain which can be an early indicator of a full stroke.

Migraines are common, but migraines with aura - which can cause blurred vision, slurred speech, and numbness in the hands - are rare.

In another story a kidney transplant accident in California is causing a lot of discussion about ways to improve the handling of transplant cases.  USC University Hospital has admitted to making a mistake by transplanting the wrong kidney into a patient.  The kidney was from a type-O universal donor and the transplant caused no complications in the patient, however, this could have been a fatal mistake if there was an incompatibility between patient and donor blood types.

The final story deals with a new study showing a link between early balding in your 20's and an increased risk of prostate cancer in men.  This is an observational study, not one that shows a specific cause and effect relationship.  This information can be used to help identify men that may be at a higher risk for prostate cancer to make sure that appropriate screening is done when combined with looking at  other risk factors such as family history of the disease.

The Da Vinci Robotic procedure has become the new “ceiling” of what medical engineering in the year 2016 can accomplish.  It has become the standard or the foundation from which greater accomplishments can be made.

Several weeks ago I found myself not waking from a nightmare but waking into one. This was after being diagnosed with cancer. My life was spiraling out of control and reaching the epitome of despair. In a true sense of the word, I was experiencing an existential crisis. At moments I even questioned whether my life was worth going forward.
