Eye on Health: Testicular Cancer & World Immunisation Week

Today on Eye on Health, Helen Farmer welcomes in Dr Sadir Alwadi, Director of Surgical Oncology Services at Al Zahra Hospital and Dr. Dima Abdul Jabbar, Medical Oncology Consultant at Advanced Care Oncology Center Dubai to talk about testicular cancer. 

April is testicular cancer awareness month. Early detection is so vital for effective treatment, although this excerpt from a blog post is quite apt “…awareness can’t be something that only happens for one month out of the year. I found a lump in October and was diagnosed in November. April is a long way off from those months.” You can find the full blog post here

In the second hour we are talking vaccines! World Immunisation Week starts this week and we have Dr Nitin Verma, Paediatrician at Kings College Hospital, Dubai, coming in to discuss how vaccines work, which vaccines are recommended and required and how to keep the family and its members on track with vaccinations, especially ahead of travels.

If you have any questions for our specialists you can contact us on the Dubai Eye app, by texting 4001 or by calling 04 423 1010
