Erin Andrews’ Cancer Diagnosis Sparked A Much-Needed Wakeup Call

Erin Andrews isn’t messing around when it comes to her health.

The sportscaster and “Dancing with the Stars” host revealed earlier this year that she had been treated for cervical cancer. The experience, she said, made her prioritize her wellbeing in a new way. And even though she’s often on the road and living out of a suitcase, she vows to take care of herself ― especially when it comes to working out.

“It’s like going to therapy,” she told HuffPost. “You don’t necessarily want to go at first, but after you feel so much better and it’s amazing.”

Back in January, Andrews revealed that she had undergone surgery in 2016 to remove her cervical cancer. She was shocked when she was diagnosed with the disease, a condition that will affect more than 12,000 other women this year. It took some time for Andrews to reconcile that she had a health issue.

“I’m somebody who never misses a doctor’s appointment,” she said. “That’s why I think my situation was so scary and so unbelievable. I hadn’t missed an annual with my gynecologist. This came up over a year and it really took us by shock.”

I’m somebody who never misses a doctor’s appointment. That’s why I think my situation was so scary and so unbelievable.

Andrews may have been surprised about the cancer discovery because of how often she gets checkups, but that type of vigilance is also the reason for her good prognosis. Cervical cancer survival rates average around 93 percent if it’s caught in the early stages.

“You have to be smart about your health,” Andrews stressed. “You have to get checked up. Detection is so key.” 

The TV personality also leaned on her friends and family after her diagnosis. It seems simple but it works: Research suggests social and emotional support can be beneficial for a person’s physical wellbeing.

The best thing I’ve learned over the years is that you need to give yourself a break.

Andrews’ last line of defense when it comes to her health is self-compassion, especially given the pressures of her career and public personal life. Whenever she feels burned out, she tells her family that she “just needs a minute” and takes some alone time (which includes her bed and watching a few episodes of “The Real Housewives”).

“The best thing I’ve learned over the years is that you need to give yourself a break,” she said. “You want to have it all together … and look like you can hang. But sometimes you just need to cut yourself slack.”

How’s that for wellbeing wisdom?

Pemphigus, A Simple Guide To The Condition, Diagnosis, Treatment And Related Conditions

Pemphigus, A Simple Guide To The Condition, Diagnosis, Treatment And Related Conditions


Pemphigus is a medical autoimmune disorder that produces blistering and sores (erosions) of the skin and mucous membranes. Pemphigus is derived from the Greek ‘pemphix’ (bubble).Pemphigus includes most bullous eruptions but improved diagnostic tests have permitted a re-categorization of bullous diseases. The bullae are superficial and confined to the epidermal layer. This is distinguished from bullous pemphigoid where bullae are sub-epidermal.3 major types of the disorder have been described, each with characteristic medical and immunological features:1. Pemphigus vulgaris (PV) is the most frequent subset or variant and is responsible for 70% of cases of pemphigus.2. Pemphigus foliaceus (PF) is characterized by lesions which happen only in the skin and linked with antibodies to desmoglein 1 (DSG1).3. Pemphigus herpetiformis, paraneoplastic pemphigus, IgA pemphigus, and IgG pemphigus are rarer formsThe exact cause is unknown. Sometimes pemphigus is caused by certain medications1. About 50% of people with this condition first form painful sores and blisters in the mouth, later developing skin blisters.2. Skin sores may come and go. The skin sores may be described as:a. Drainingb. Oozingc. Crustingd. Peeling or easily detachedThey may be located:1. In the mouth2. On the scalp, trunk, or other skin areasThe oral cavity is most frequently involved (almost all cases).Buccal, gingival, and palatine lesions occur.A skin biopsy is normally done to confirm the diagnosis. Skin biopsy should be from the edge of a blister and preferably examined fresh rather than in media of transport of the biopsy specimen resulting in a risk of false-negative results. General measures are advising patients with painful oral lesions to have soft foods and the use of soft toothbrush. Topical anesthetics or analgesics may give some symptomatic relief. Most of the patients are treated with systemic corticosteroid treatment which normally results in full remission. Intravenous immunoglobulin may be used to i

Andy Cohen Reveals Skin Cancer Diagnosis On ‘Live With Kelly’

Andy Cohen appeared alongside Kelly Ripa on “Live with Kelly” Friday morning and made a startling revelation about his health. The 48-year-old “Watch What Happens Live” host revealed that he was recently diagnosed with skin cancer after Ripa noticed an abnormal mark on his lip. 

“I have to shout you out for something that you don’t know I’m going to shout you out for,” Cohen told Ripa on the morning show, explaining that he had this “black dot on his bottom lip” that she first noticed in April. 

Although Cohen didn’t get it checked out right away, he told the audience that Ripa and her husband, Mark Consuelos, were adamant that he go to a dermatologist.

“Finally, I did, and it was melanoma and they removed it and the whole thing, and I just want to thank you because you were so dogmatic,” he told Ripa. “And it’s all fine.”

Cohen, who just released a book, Superficial: More Adventures From the Andy Cohen Diaries, said that his diagnosis has changed his attitude toward sunbathing.

“I am tanorexic. I love the sun, I really do, but be careful,” he said. “And I, of course, never thought that that kind of thing would happen to me and it will change my relationship to the sun.” 

Melanoma is the most serious type of skin cancer, according to cancer.org. It’s less common but more dangerous than basal cell and squamous cell skin cancers because it’s much more likely to spread to other parts of the body if not caught early.

Marriage and Cancer: 10 Ways to Maintain Your Relationship After a Diagnosis

2015-03-04-1425443852-222590-madsenwedding952BW.jpg

Marriage is hard work. It requires a level of effort, dedication and commitment unparalleled to other relationships. One of the first pieces of marital wisdom I received from my parents was exactly that — “Marriage takes work. It’s not a stroll in the park.”

Marriage captures the ability of two people to rely on one another through both the good and bad times. It measures one’s character and integrity through the act of caring for another. As with any relationship, most marriages experience high peaks and low valleys. A diagnosis will bring out the best and worst of you and your partner. It has the potential to tear your relationship apart or bring you closer together more intimately than you could have imagined. As the saying goes, it’s not about what happens to you, it’s about how you respond. Upon receiving the news of a diagnosis, you must make the choice to not only fight the disease, but also fight for your relationship. Below are 10 ways to help your marriage after a diagnosis.

Commit: Above anything else, you must make the conscious decision to commit — both to your spouse and to the process. Commitment doesn’t automatically happen when you speak your vows. It is a choice that must be repeated over the course of your relationship. Your journey through cancer requires steadfastness and faithfulness to one another. You need to assume that life is going to get extremely bumpy and uncomfortable. Nearly everything you have encountered thus far has been butterflies, fairy dust, and roses and you’re about to endure some of the most difficult moments in your life. Both of you will be pulled in different directions and be influenced in many ways. When things get ugly, complications arise, and grief pours over you both, you need to hold tight to each other. Commit yourself to be there for one another no matter what happens.

Communicate: Continue to talk. Grief is expressed in a variety of ways and for some, it shows itself in silence. Though there will be times when you need to process on your own, don’t build a wall between you and your loved one. In an atmosphere of silence, assumptions are birthed and hurt will grow. Communicating can bring healing to your relationship. You will both experience different emotions from the moment you hear the news of the diagnosis, and being on the exact same emotional page will be a rarity. Keeping the lines of communication open will benefit your marriage by drawing you closer to one another and preventing hurt feelings in the future. It’s OK to express your fears and anxieties. And equally so, it’s OK to share your faith and hope. Be vulnerable and loving in your communication, and understand that talking things through will only benefit the bond you have with your spouse.

Prioritize: Life moves quickly upon receiving a diagnosis. Medical decisions will need to be made. You’ll need to find a team of doctors that you feel comfortable with. Treatment will be discussed, and you will need to choose which option is best for you. Eventually you’ll feel in over your head as the chaos circles around you. Keeping a list of priorities will help establish balance. Be aware of what tasks are at hand and stay on the same page as your spouse. Communicate what is most important to your relationship. Is it more important to preserve your fertility before beginning harsh treatments? Do you want to establish a medical banking account to manage expenses? Put yourselves first and be OK saying “no” to those around you. Your health and your marriage are number one.

Be flexible: Plans change… that’s life. When cancer rears it’s ugly head into your relationship, you need to start stretching. Many of your dreams, goals, and desires for your life and family will abruptly come to a halt. Keep a tight grip on your non-negotiables and let insignificant matters go. Change is difficult, but being flexible is more valuable than gold. Go with the flow. Some plans will fizzle and new dreams will come forth. Flexibility allows room for growth.

Stay on the same team: Cancer can bring out the worst in us. Anger is one of the most common emotions that patients and their families deal with. Remember that each of you process things differently, and that no way is better than the other. Allow each other space to grieve and be sympathetic towards one another. Remember that you are fighting cancer, not your loved one. Direct your anger towards the root of the issue, and don’t let your emotions erupt in an attack on your spouse. Though at times you’ll feel your partner doesn’t understand what you are going through, don’t alienate them and turn them into the enemy. You’re on the same team, and you each play a vital position. Work together at working through it.

Pursue: We’ve all heard that we should continue to date our spouse after our wedding day. Whether to keep things interesting or to continue to nurture the bond, pursuing each other is important to your relationship. This shouldn’t stop after a diagnosis. Though it will require a deeper level of intent, consistently seeking each other out will be rewarded. Make time for one another. Go out of your way to make your spouse feel special. Pursue your partner’s heart. Ask questions about how they are doing and be a good listener when they respond. Treatments and the subsequent side effects may get in the way of your typical dinner and a movie date night, but if you are creative you can cultivate new ways to deepen your bond. Remember that dates don’t have to be fancy or extravagant, and most likely won’t be for a while.

Be grateful: Have you ever met someone so full of gratitude that it made you reflect on what you’re thankful for? Having an attitude of gratitude in all circumstances will change your view of the most difficult times. Though you’ll have a large list of things you are angry, upset, and resentful over, make an effort to think of things that you are thankful for. Thanksgiving is one of the quickest ways to heal a hardened heart. Make a list. Whether in your mind or on paper, write down specific items you are grateful for. Be thankful for the details. Be thankful for all things big and little. Be thankful for the life and love you share with one another. An attitude of gratitude will transform your perspective and will strengthen your spirit throughout your battle.

Remain intimate: Intimacy isn’t always about sex. Though sex is one of the fundamental ways to be intimate with your partner, there are other means to stay connected. Unfortunately, cancer robs many people of their sexual function, yet marriages continue to blossom even without intercourse. When biology is thrown off, creativity is born. Adapting to your current situation will benefit you both. Be gentle with one another. Discover new ways to develop a more profound connection. Hold hands. Share secrets. Kiss. Being affectionate will remind your partner that you are invested in them. If you allow it, the intimacy in your relationship can reach new heights after a diagnosis. Vulnerability will welcome intimacy.

Remember your vows: Think back to the day you stood in front of your friends and family and made lifelong promises to your spouse. What did you say? More than likely, you vowed to stay by your partner in sickness and in health. While you probably had no idea that sickness meant cancer, you promised your partner you would not leave them when things got rough. You vowed to stand with each other no matter what. You vowed to love one another and cherish one another. There will be moments in your journey after your diagnosis that all you have left is the man or woman standing beside you. Think back to your wedding day. If you knew then what you know now, would your decision be different? True, authentic, raw love knows no bounds. You loved them then… love them now.

How A Multiple Sclerosis Diagnosis Put My Marriage In Perspective

By Diana Frustaci for YourTango.com

I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2012. I was 27, turning 28 a few weeks later at the time, and engaged to be married the following year. One minute I was an excited, expectant bride obsessing over mermaid vs. princess-cut gowns, and the next I was strapped to an IV with steroids pumping though my body to calm the inflammation in my optic nerve.

After that, the changes happened almost over night. My eye, a victim of optic neuritis, went dark and blind. My body, strong from the steroids but weak once they wore off, became a stranger to me. I suddenly noticed the tremors in my hand and the way my leg would suddenly become numb in the morning. It all meant one thing: I would have to take better care of myself if I wanted to survive.

And I did. I started going to yoga to improve my balance. I started taking vitamins (hello, Vitamin D) and began eating healthier. I said goodbye to processed foods and embraced fruits and vegetables. I also dusted life’s petty nuances off my shoulders — those minor irritants that used to cause me extreme panic were now put into perspective. Traffic? Who cares? I’m in no hurry. Annoying Facebook post by a frenemy who could afford to be more modest? Not my problem.
Fight with the husband? Well, that took more time to let go. But I did. And ultimately, I feel the changes I made have helped not only my physical health, but my marriage as well.

The first thing I did was learn how to stop reacting. Whenever I would feel angry or overly passionate, I’d have a physical reaction. Literally. My right eye would twitch and what looked like gray film would envelop my cornea. I could feel the energy drain from my body, and soon enough my legs would go numb. My hands would prickle with tension.

And so I worked hard to stop reacting — not because it was bad for my marriage but because it was bad for my body. I did not want to let my body succumb to weakness or pain because of something I perceived to be “right” or “wrong”. It simply wasn’t worth it — not for me or my marriage.

But my attitude adjustment didn’t happen over night. It was a gradual process, but eventually I was able to regulate my reactions. First, I had to kill my darlings: Just because I had something clever to say didn’t mean I should say it, especially if it was going to cause a fight or hurt his feelings. So when I would get upset, I would try to understand the real issue. Instead of involving my husband, I finally listened to my therapist and involved my pen and paper. And thus, my love of journaling to resolve issues was born.

When an issue would arise, I would work through the process on paper. Was I being irrational? Was I being petty? Did this really matter in the long run? And if it did, was now the time to fix it? Before long, I was able to just be — without having to comment and pick on everything, even if I saw and noticed everything (and trust me, I did).

For instance, once my husband and I were hanging out in the living room when he said something that upset me. It was a reoccurring issue, and one I wasn’t even sure I was right about, but I did not respond to him. Instead, I left the room. Once away from the pressure and tension, I took to my journal and started transcribing my feelings. I was mean and clever in my writing, and by the time I was done scribbling my passionate points about what a poo-poo head I thought my husband was being, I felt better. When he came to see why I had left the room, I told him I was writing notes about him and that it was my way of dealing with my feelings. “Better than fighting, right?” He couldn’t argue with that, and we moved on with our evening, fight-free.

Aside from my MS flare-ups helping me tune out life’s ugly messes, just about every article about healthy relationships notes that the best course of action is to pick your battles. Those articles are spot on. What I’ve learned from having a physical reaction to stress is that most things don’t really matter, and that it’s better to live a peaceful life than a petty one. I picked that road and it has made all the difference.
