Results from the latest Mayo Clinic National Health Check-Up put cancer at the top of a list of American health care concerns. Survey participants labeled brain cancer the scariest form of the disease, followed by pancreatic, lung and breast cancer. “While cancer is the biggest concern, nearly three-quarters of respondents believe that at least some progress is being made in finding answers,” says Dr. John Wald, medical director for Public Affairs at Mayo Clinic. “Indeed, early detection and treatment advances are improving outcomes.” The Mayo Clinic National Health Check-Up explores a variety of health perspectives and behaviors among American adults. The latest edition of the survey was conducted in July and includes responses from 1,012 participants on questions about brain health, sleep routines and more. In this Mayo Clinic Minute, reporter Jeff Olsen speaks with Dr. Wald about what was revealed in the analysis.

Lung cancer is one of the most lethal forms of cancer worldwide. With a deficit of effective screening tools for lung cancer, the disease is oftentimes discovered and diagnosed in more advanced, later stages. Steven Schild, M.D., Chair of the department of radiology at Mayo Clinic in Arizona, explains how Mayo Clinic is helping to design lung cancer treatment trials aimed at promoting a higher cure rate, a lower toxicity in treatment, with outcomes that will serve patients needs best.

In a new study by Mayo Clinic and the molecular diagnostics company Exact Sciences, a blood-based cancer test has shown high accuracy for detecting lung cancer at all stages. "We were very pleased to see those results," says Dr. David Ahlquist, a Mayo Clinic gastroenterologist who previously worked with Exact Sciences to develop a colon cancer test called Cologuard. "This new test approach that targets novel DNA markers had a sensitivity of 96 percent for lung cancer detection at 94 percent specificity." Doctors say further research is needed, but the test shows promise for becoming a valuable new tool in the fight against lung cancer, the No. 1 cancer killer in the U.S. "We know that we can save lives if we find it early enough," says Dr. David Midthun, a Mayo Clinic pulmonologist. "And, potentially, we could find it even earlier with a blood test than with a CT scan." In this Mayo Clinic Minute, Drs. Ahlquist and Midthun explain how the test works and why it has the potential to change the way you’re screened for lung cancer. Jeff Olsen reports.

Just as cameras and televisions have been reinvented in the last decade with improved optics, sharpness and brightness, so have the tiny imaging scopes that physicians use to peer into the bodys nooks and crannies — its organs and digestive system. Researchers at the Florida campus of Mayo Clinic are testing the power of these new endoscopic optics to potentially help prevent or detect early colon cancer, lung cancer metastasis, and esophageal cancer. Results of a number of these studies, led by Michael Wallace, M.D., M.P.H., professor of medicine, are being presenting at the annual international scientific conference, Digestive Disease Week (DDW) 2010. In one study, for example, gastroenterologists at Mayo have pitted multiple high-tech probes against each other to see how well they detect the tiniest precancerous polyp in the colon. They have determined that one endoscopic imaging tool called the probe-based confocal laser endomicroscopy (pCLE) shows the highest accuracy yet in detecting small precancerous polyps inside the colon wall. The probe is only one-sixteenth of an inch in diameter. We can see detail that was unimagined 10 years ago, says Dr. Wallace. We can zoom in on a potential problem spot in the colon with 1,000-fold magnification, leading to a day when we can perform virtual biopsies on patients meaning that we will be able to tell if a lesion is precancerous by looking at it, and if it isnt, we can leave it alone. Now we have to remove anything that looks even slightly suspicious. In another study, Dr. Wallace has shown that pCLE can reduce the number of biopsies necessary in Barretts esophagus, a condition where the tissue lining the esophagus is replaced by tissue that is similar to the lining of the intestine —which can then morph into cancer. Using pCLE can therefore reduce laborious and painful screening in patients with Barretts esophagus, he says. Researchers at Mayo Clinic are also testing other scopes to search lymph nodes outside of the lung for evidence of micrometastatis — the spread of cancer cells that cant easily be seen. They have found that threading a scope down the esophagus to remove a biopsy of lymph nodes near the lungs, and then testing the tissue with a panel of five molecules, can indicate cancer spread in lymph nodes that were thought to be cancer free when examined in other ways. The findings suggest that this technology, dubbed EUS-FNA (endoscopic ultrasoundfine needle aspiration), can help physicians decide which therapy to offer patients whose lymph nodes show cancer spread.

Raegan Cury, who lives in Atlantic Beach, Florida, was diagnosed with bronchoalveolar lung cancer. Unfortunately, following surgery to remove one lung and chemotherapy, additional cancer nodules throughout her remaining lung. At Mayo Clinic, Cesar Keller, M.D., a pulmonologist in the Transplant Center, tried something never done before. During Reagan's lung transplant in 2004, he washed her remaining native airways with a chemotherapy solution to try to prevent any remaining cancer cells from inhabiting Raegan’s newly transplanted lung. The transplant was successful. And the cancer never came back. Raegan's was the first and last transplant for anyone with her condition. The next year, the lung allocation system changed, and the guidelines stated that outcomes for patients with Raegan’s disease were considered too uncertain to warrant transplant of a precious donor lung. A lung restoration center under construction on Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus could change that by making many more donor lungs viable for transplant. Mayo Clinic is collaborating with United Therapeutics, which has developed technology to sustain and rejuvenate donor lungs, making previously marginal lungs suitable for transplantation and extending the time lungs remain viable.

Linda Wortman says her life passion is to save lungs and lives. As a lung cancer survivor, she was compelled to start her own foundation to raise awareness and remove the stigma that lung cancer is only a smoker’s disease. The Wortman Lung Cancer Foundation organizes Running Lung races and other events throughout the U.S. to raise funds for lung cancer research and enhance education about lung health. Wortman jumps at opportunities to educate and share her story. As a patient advocate on Capitol Hill, she’s given a voice to lung cancer patients and works to shape health care policies. Beyond sharing her story in person, Wortman is an active member on the patient-to-patient digital platform, Mayo Clinic Connect. She says she enjoys the open, honest conversations of those who understand some of the feelings that go along with a serious diagnosis. Why does she push herself? She says, “I can give other people hope, and, when you give other people hope, you give them an avenue to walk so they can have a great quality of life. And I think I’m that living example.” Wortman sees the hope she gives others as a Mayo Clinic Champion and looks forward to continuing to make an impact with her work.

Researchers on Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus have shut down one of the most common and lethal forms of lung cancer by combining the rheumatoid arthritis drug auranofin with an experimental targeted agent. The combination therapy worked in a laboratory study to stop lung adenocarcinoma associated with mutation of the KRAS gene. The study will be published in the March 14 issue of Cancer Cell. “If our approach works in KRAS-mediated lung adenocarcinoma, it may work in other KRAS-mediated cancers, such as pancreatic and colon cancers, as well as other cancer types,” says the study’s senior author, Alan P. Fields, Ph.D., a cancer biologist and the Monica Flynn Jacoby Professor of Cancer Research in the Department of Cancer Biology at Mayo Clinic in Florida. Based on this and other preclinical research from Dr. Fields’ team, Mayo Clinic is conducting early-phase clinical trials to test the effectiveness of auranofin alone and in targeted combinations in patients with KRAS-mediated lung adenocarcinoma, ovarian cancer, and another common lung cancer called lung squamous cell carcinoma.

Even though 30,000 patients in the United States undergo lung surgery each year, no standard criteria exist to measure the quality of their care. In the current issue of The Annals of Thoracic Surgery, Mayo Clinic surgeons have proposed a system of lung surgery quality indicators for surgeons and the public as a method to demonstrate best practices for obtaining positive patient outcomes. Death rates following surgery are frequently reported. However, because they aren't adjusted for factors such as patient age and disease severity, they don't tell the whole story. To overcome this lack of risk adjustment in death rate data, the Mayo Clinic team proposed patient-centered processes that should occur prior to, during and after surgery to assure the likelihood of best surgical outcomes. "There are certain processes that we can measure and report that clearly indicate whether patients have received high-quality care around the time of their lung operation," explains Stephen Cassivi, M.D., Mayo Clinic thoracic surgeon and lead study author.

Early Warning Signs of Pancreatic Cancer Diabetes, especially if it comes on suddenly. Recently, the Mayo Clinic published startling research showing that 40 percent of pancreatic cancer patients had been diagnosed with diabetes one to two years before discovering they had a pancreatic tumor. Researchers believe the diabetes is caused by tumors that simply haven't been detected yet. The problem is, diabetes is very common, and the majority of diabetes isn't pancreatic cancer, so doctors are trying to develop screening tools to tell the difference. Right now, they say family history is an important clue. If you're diagnosed with diabetes that seems to come on suddenly and you have no family history of diabetes, bring this to your doctor's attention and ask for further screening for pancreatic cancer. Yellowing of the eyes or skin. Even a small pancreatic tumor can block the bile duct in the head of the pancreas, causing bile to build up. This causes jaundice. Itchy skin, palms, and soles of feet. A little-known side-effect of jaundice is itchy hands and feet. It's due to a skin reaction to the bilirubin, the yellowish brown liver chemical that causes jaundice. Lack of appetite. An Italian study found that six to eight months before being diagnosed with pancreatic tumors, patients reported a sudden drop in their appetite and a tendency to feel full after eating very little. Changes in taste. In the same Italian study, some of the patients surveyed said they'd suddenly lost their taste for coffee, wine, and smoking. In fact, they said, they felt "disgust" for the smell and taste of coffee and alcohol. Abdominal pain. Pancreatic cancer sufferers remember this pain as a gnawing pain, rather than a sharp cramp or ache, and it radiates toward the back. A characteristic clue: the pain goes away when you lean forward. An enlarged gall bladder. The same blockage of the bile duct that causes jaundice can also cause an enlarged gallbladder, as the bile builds up behind the duct. The good news is that an enlarged gallbladder can be seen on imaging tests, and it may even be possible for a doctor to feel it during a physical exam. Pale, floating, smelly stools. If a pancreatic tumor prevents digestive enzymes from reaching the intestine, the result is an inability to digest fatty foods. So you end up with loose, smelly "floaters" as a result of the excess fat. Doctors say this symptom, in particular, can be an early clue and is too often overlooked. Dark, tarry stools. Bleeding in the upper intestines causes this symptom. Sudden, unexplained weight loss. Weight loss is not always, as many people mistakenly believe, a sign of advanced cancer that's spread to the liver. It can also happen because a lack of pancreatic enzymes is causing fat to pass through the body undigested. New videos everyday!

I always try to teach my students about the power of teamwork. I believe teamwork works. With Mayo Clinic and Mosaic Life Care working together, they were able to collaborate and come up with the best treatment plan for me, the best surgical options and the very best care that I could possibly have. Diana came to us with complaints of significant right chest pain. And her workup showed that she had a very large, right-sided lung mass. So she was felt to be at least a stage three of four lung cancer, and pathology did confirm this. Initially at the time, we didn’t feel that surgery was the option to start with. We wanted to try to shrink the tumor. And then as she responded so well, we knew that it was going to be a big, big operation, and one that was probably best done someplace that does that magnitude of operation as a routine basis. So the Mayo Clinic took wonderful care of her. I feel like I’m the luckiest girl in the whole wide world to have that team of professionals caring for me. Thank you just isn’t enough. I thank you with every fiber of my being for providing me with the very best care anyone could ever hope for.
