A lot of things happen in your life.
Things you don’t think you have control over, like your health, or your family, or even the weather.
But if you have a chronic illness, there’s an urgent need to get a diagnosis, treatment, and when you can get there.
There are doctors and clinics in West Chicago.
And for the people with cancer, there are people with other diseases who need to have a conversation with doctors about getting tested, treated, and even discharged.
The West Side is the epicenter of cancer care in the U.S., and that’s because the region is home to the world’s largest cancer centers, the University of Chicago and University of Pennsylvania.
There’s a lot of doctors in West side, but there’s a lack of options.
So when I got diagnosed, I went into my doctor with a few questions: How do I get tested?
What kind of testing can I expect?
What happens if I don’t get tested for cancer?
What will happen if I’m diagnosed?
What’s the best way to get tested and treated?
Dr. Jonathan Kappel, director of the University at Buffalo’s cancer center, has been on the West Side for more than 30 years and has seen thousands of people in his office.
He said there are about 20,000 cancer cases in West Michigan.
“They are at a peak in the middle of the year,” Kapple said.
“People are in the hospital for an average of nine days in a row.
There is a lot more cancer, so the cancer center has a huge workload.”
Kappel said that’s why it’s important to get test results within 24 hours.
“It’s really important to keep in mind that you’re not going to see a positive result if you get tested before your 18th birthday,” Koppel said.
Kapple works in Westside Health Services, which is part of Westside Community Health Services.
He and his staff will get to know you and how to keep you in the best shape possible.
He recommends that you keep the following things in mind: Have a good diet.
Have adequate sleep.
Take a daily walk.
Dr. David C. Jones, an internist at Westside, also said he thinks people need to take care of themselves and their health.
“One of the main reasons people are going to get cancer is they’re going to need to be in better health than the average person,” Jones said.
Jones said most people with a history of cancer don’t know how to deal with the disease and don’t have the money to get it under control.
But, if you do have a history, Jones said, you should get tested.
“We really have to make sure that we’re not sending the wrong message to people who have a lot to lose,” Jones explained.
“If we can help them, we can save them.”
“We are going into our patients’ homes and saying, `Hey, this is why you have cancer, this has nothing to do with your health,'” Jones said of the cancer screening.
Jones said it takes about two weeks for someone with a diagnosed cancer to go to a clinic.
But when they come in, they are checked for any other illnesses.
They may have tests done to see if they have diabetes, or blood tests for liver disease, or they may have blood tests done for cholesterol.
If a patient has other symptoms, such as a fever or cough, they can be tested for a second time, or their cancer may be detected by a lab.
“A lot of times, it will take months for somebody to have their cancer removed,” Jones told CBS News.
If a cancer diagnosis is made, patients who need treatment will get their treatment, either in West Detroit or elsewhere in the region.
Koppel explained how he sees the Westside as the frontline of cancer.
“If you have been diagnosed with cancer or you have had cancer, we’re here to help you,” Kippel said, adding that Westside’s medical staff can provide information about how to get treatment, whether you have any tests to do or don’t, or how to follow up.
I’ve been treated here since I was a little kid, and I’ve been very grateful,” he said.
Koppels patients, like his, are being cared for by doctors and nurses in West.
There’s a long waiting list, but it usually takes about five years to get through that.
Kappels staff members will also have patients in their office and take care if they’re at home.
The patients who don’t need a doctor are getting tested.
Patients who are diagnosed with breast cancer will get tested, and some patients may need to go through another surgery, but Kapples staff members have been able to help them through it.”I
