The type of tumor, its size, location and the problems it's causing are all considerations in deciding how to move forward. (Getty Images)Everything from genetics to toxins in the environment to our diet can play a role in the formation of tumors. When a tumor is determined to be benign – understandably, it's usually a relief. We live with many imperfections in our bodies that never do us harm, and often benign tumors require no treatment.
Why you might be headed to the ER with your child. Each year, 25.5 million children under 18 are taken to the emergency room. Though these numbers can be frightening to a parent, there is a lot they can do to help keep their children out of the hospital, including implementing safety measures at home and partnering with their pediatricians to devise a plan of action for children with particular medical conditions, such as asthma or diabetes.
According to prior research described in a study published in May in the journal Development and Psychopathology, "Large suburban metro counties went from having the lowest to the highest rate of premature death due to drug overdose within the past decade. Premature death due to drug overdose was highest among whites." The May study set out to evaluate drug and alcohol misuse and addiction through early adulthood among individuals who went to high school in upper middle-class communities.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
