Laredo Medical Center held their monthly Senior Circle Meeting Wednesday afternoon.
A doctor who specializes in cancer spoke to the members while they enjoyed lunch. Doctor Soriano spoke about the common types of cancer seen more frequently in Laredo. He said stomach cancer and liver cancer are the most common types he sees. "We don't know why, exactly. We think it's a combination of factors. It could be related to diet; it could be related to frequency of diabetes, [and] obesity here in the border." He goes on to say these factors are preventable with incorporating diet and exercise in one's daily routine.
