The head of a Dubai hospital urology department says that while openness is increasing among men when it comes to cancer conversations, there still exists a reluctance among many to broach the subject of their health — either with friends or doctors.  “Movember is a great opportunity for people to talk about men’s cancer, which is too often overlooked,” says Dr Hosam Al-Qudah, head of urology at Al Zahra Hospital Dubai. “Breast cancer awareness gets...

She’s just 13, but in June, while everyone else was preoccupied with Covid-19, Imogen Robinson was finishing her last round of chemotherapy after a seven-month battle with ovarian cancer. But cancer didn’t stop her from learning how to apply makeup, or starting a social media platform to showcase her looks.

Until this year, there was nothing that appealed to me about fasting or a diet that mimicked fasting. I’ve always been a three square meals, two snacks a day kind of person who gets hangry – fast.

The words “cancer” and “breakthrough” have become so inseparable in headlines over the years that, given the rising global toll of deaths, one could be forgiven for thinking that researchers seeking a solution to the world’s second-leading cause of death are chasing a hopeless dream. In fact, as the uplifting message of the 20th World Cancer Day on February 4 makes clear, nothing could be further from the truth. Cancer is on the back foot...

Palliative care for the terminally ill is still severely limited across the UAE due to inadequate, dated insurance policies and a lack of trained experts to care for the dying, healthcare professionals say. As palliative care is only available in a few hospitals, there is also a shortage of options for advanced pain management, despite an Emirates-wide push to advance healthcare options.  This leaves many end-of-life patients suffering, with pain being one of the most...
