Don’t forget male breast cancer

Male breast neoplasm is a relatively rare cancer in men that originates from the breast. As it presents a similar pathology as female breast cancer, assessment and treatment relies on experiences and guidelines that have been developed in female patients. The optimal treatment is currently not known.

Incidence

According to Wikipedia, about one percent of breast cancer develops in males. It is estimated that about 2,140 new cases are diagnosed annually in the United States (US) and about 300 in the United Kingdom (UK). The number of annual deaths in the US is about 450. In a study from India, eight out of 1,200 (0.7%) male cancer diagnoses in a pathology review represented breast cancer. Incidences of male breast cancer have been increasing which raise the probability of other family members developing the disease. The relative risk of breast cancer for a female with an affected brother is approximately 30% higher than for a female with an affected sister. The tumor can occur over a wide age range, but typically appears in men in their sixties and seventies. Known risk factors include radiation exposure, exposure to female hormones (estrogen), and genetic factors.

High estrogen exposure may occur by medications, obesity, or liver disease, and genetic links include a high prevalence of female breast cancer in close relatives. Chronic alcoholism has been linked to male breast cancer. The highest risk for male breast cancer is carried by men with Klinefelter syndrome. Male BRCA mutation carriers are thought to be at higher risk for breast cancer as well, with roughly 10% of male breast cancer cases carrying BRCA2 mutations, and BRCA1 mutation being in the minority.

By Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA

As reported on this ME-P and elsewhere, I was recently in Philadelphia for a number of reasons and had the opportunity to stop by Drexel University to get some information on their nursing program. There, I learned that it is one of the nation’s top nursing schools.

In fact, Drexel University is ranked one of “America’s BEST Colleges 2011” by U.S.News & World Report. I also learned the following about breast cancer:

What is an “INSIDER” Company Shareholder?

TERMS AND DEFINITIONS PHYSICIAN INVESTORS SHOULD KNOW

By Dr. David E. Marcinko MBA CMP®

CMP logo

SPONSOR: http://www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.org

Insider transactions shouldn’t be used primarily to make an investing decision, however an insider transaction can be an important factor in the investing decision.

In legal terms, an “insider” refers to any shareholder who owns at least 10% of a company. This can include executives in the c-suite and large hedge funds. These insiders are required to let the public know of their transactions via a Form 4 filing, which must be filed within two business days of the transaction.

INSIDER TRANSACTIONS

When a company insider makes a new purchase, that is an indication that they expect the stock to rise.

Insider sells, on the other hand, can be made for a variety of reasons, and may not necessarily mean that the seller thinks the stock will go down.

EXAMPLE:

Mark Zuckerberg, CEO at Facebook (NASDAQ:FB), just made a large buy and sell of company shares on November 3, according to a new SEC filing. A Form 4 filing from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission states that Mark Zuckerberg exercised options to purchase 62,300 Facebook shares for $0 on November 3. They then sold their shares on the same day in the open market. They sold at prices ranging from $324.04 to $332.02 to raise a total of $25,463,482 from the stock sale.

Zuckerberg still owns a total of 232,400 shares of Facebook worth, $78,226,142.

What is a Medical OBL?

Office Based Laboratories

By Health Capital Consultants, LLC

***

DEFINITION: OBLs, also known as office-based endovascular centers, access centers, or office interventional suites, are physician offices wherein a number of services are offered.

CITE: https://www.r2library.com/Resource/Title/0826102549

Similar to ASCs, OBLs can be single specialty or multi-specialty and can have a number of ownership structures. However, unlike ASCs, OBL procedures (because they are located in a physician office) are reimbursed under the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule.

***

***

OBLs are typically operated and utilized by vascular surgeons, interventional radiologists, cardiologists, or other specialists, and services provided include: cardiovascular, endovascular, venous, and non-vascular services; cardiac procedures, such as diagnostic coronary angiograms, coronary stenting, electro physiology services; device implants, including pacemakers, defibrillators, loop recorders, and biventricular pacers; lower extremity endovascular revascularizations, such as chronic total occlusion and complex limb salvage procedures; renal and mesenteric revascularizations; and, subclavian stenting.23 Of these procedures, peripheral vascular intervention, cardiac services, and interventional radiology made up the majority of the OBL market share in 2019.

While slower to materialize than ASCs, OBLs have increased rapidly over the past few years, for reasons similar to ASCs, e.g., opportunities for physician ownership, the “expedient patient experience” and “favorable outpatient procedural reimbursement.”

In 2020, the global OBL market was valued at $9 billion. Similar to ASCs, an increasing focus on outpatient procedures (due to their cost-saving potential)
