During a discussion with her doctor, longtime Fox News personality and former White House press secretary for President George W. Bush disclosed a health “incident” live on camera.
Arash Akhavan, Perino’s “trusted doctor,” and co-host Bill Hemmer joined her for the segment. Hemmer started off by saying, “Dana, my partner, just had an incident.”
She claimed that she first met Akhavan after discovering a spot on her forehead a few years prior. “I was concerned,” she said. Even while she could not identify the precise disease, she did mention that she had received medical attention and had “got ahead of it.”
Akhavan then noted that “prevention” and “early detection” are the two greatest treatment options for skin cancer, which may have given away the disease.
“In your case [Perino], we were able to detect things early and take care of it before it became a real issue,” said the physician.
Perino gave her makeup artists high credit for being able to cover the location while she was receiving treatment.
“The makeup artists were very good, covering it up all the time,” she said.
May was skin cancer month, and the Skin Cancer Foundation noted: “1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer by the age of 70.”
The organization added: “More than two people die of skin cancer in the U.S. every hour.”
Akhavan, a dermatologist, discussed how prevalent skin cancer is: “There is more skin cancer diagnosed in the United States every year than all other cancers combined.”
“I always tell my patients, ‘Look for the ugly duckling.’ If one of the spots doesn’t match the other spots, bring that to the attention of a board-certified dermatologist,” he said.
He responded, “If your skin is getting enough UV exposure to cause a tan, then it is getting enough UV exposure to cause DNA damage that can lead to skin cancer and promote aging.” when asked about obtaining a little color on your skin from the sun.
In the meantime, changes at Fox News and its affiliated networks have been turbulent ever since Tucker Carlson was fired in April.
According to Broadcasting & Cable, Fox Business has made the latest decision to eliminate the long-running program “Kennedy,” which airs at the 7 p.m. EDT time slot, and will instead, for the time being, air repeats of former Trump administration economist Larry Kudlow.
According to the article, Lisa Kennedy Montgomery will stay on at Fox News and appear frequently on “The Five,” “Outnumbered,” and other programs.
“Fridays are also seeing a change at Fox Business, with Wall Street Journal at Large with Gerry Baker no longer in the 7:30 p.m. slot, and Barron’s Roundtable moving into that slot. Barron’s Roundtable is currently on Saturdays at 10 a.m. Baker will continue to contribute to Fox News Media,” the report added.
Reruns of COPS, which are presently carried on Fox’s streaming network Fox Nation, are shown at the end of each broadcast day on the Fox Business Network.
Popular primetime host Carlson and the network “have agreed to part ways” after more than ten years together, Fox News reported on April 24.
“Carlson’s last program was Friday, April 21st, Fox News said, meaning Carlson did not get a chance to sign off to his viewers. The news comes days after Fox News reached a historic 11th-hour settlement with Dominion Voting Systems for over $787 million,” Axios reported.
