The world was saddened by the death of Steve Jobs on October 5, 2011. How many of us love our Macs, iPhones and iPads? Once you are a Mac user you just cannot go back to the other way.
Here was a man who had all the resources in the world, all the finest doctors and support from friends and family but he still succumbed to cancer.
One never knows when cancer can strike you or someone you love. Elaine Savard, a Thyroid Cancer survivor, has made it her mission to help everyone understand the disease. Her website http://www.papillarythyroidcancerguide.com was started with this purpose. There Savard describes the symptoms, the treatments and everything else that a thyroid patient may encounter on their journey with the disease.
Savard asks “Do you know how to do a thyroid cancer neck check?” She feels that this check is just as important to do as a self breast exam. On her website she describes how to do the neck check. Knowing your body and being observant of any changes are critical for diagnosing thyroid cancer and many other diseases in their early stages. Most thyroid cancers if diagnosed in the early stage have a very good prognosis.
