Searching for Melanoma; This Week on Your Cancer Today™

NEWPORT BEACH, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 2, 2007 -- Your Cancer Today™ is a 30 minute television talk show, dedicated to inform and educate viewers from both the institutional and patients' perspectives.

This week we're going to learn about the differences between flexible sigmoidoscopy, colonoscopy and the new virtual colonoscopy tests for colon cancer and discuss whether polyp size discoveries during a flexible sigmoidoscopy predict the need for a subsequent colonoscopy.

We'll also hear from a doctor in Chicago about a melanoma screening practice she endorses, self examination aided by a partner or significant other. Of the 62,000 new melanoma cases reported each year in the US alone, 10,000 are fatal.

Your Cancer Today™ Producer Alan Painter is a Director of NanoLife Sciences, Inc., developers of Proton Treatment Centers. "This is a much needed show," Painter says, "and way overdue. Information is the key to fighting cancer and the more we can spread the word, the better it will be for everyone." Donald Baillargeon, Executive Producer and Host of MoneyTV, which has been running since 1996 in 125 million homes globally, is also the Host and Executive Producer of Your Cancer Today™.
