It is frightening how many types of cancer there are. It is wonderful these doctor can talk to us through the medium of Community Voice.

A very informative video and Dr Paul Nathan treats my husband for melanoma. We are very fortunate to have such a consultant. Please continue to deliver these kind of sessions. Are there any studies that show the impact of nutrition on melanoma?

Excellent presentations. My husband is treated by Dr Paul Nathan for malignant melanoma and we are fortunate to have such an excellent consultant. Is there any evidence at all on the impact of nutrition on melanoma?

My husband was treated by Dr Paul Nathan - nearly seven years ago and we have immense gratitude for the care by Dr Paul Nathan. We are aware of the dangers of exposure to the sun. Knowing one cannot stay locked up all the time the sun is shining and apart from avoiding the peak times of the sun. - Is there any evidence that the compounds in sun cream is just as dangerous - or is this a myth? Secondly I know tree is a correlation with deficiency in Vit D. It is virtually impossible to get some GPs to test Vit D levels. I hope GPs are also get more informed in this area. Please keep the podcasts coming. Both my husband and I are very interested in hearing developments in melanoma. Thank you again for your kind and competent care of my husband Bede. You are the best.
