:
Cancer is a systemic disease with tumors as a local manifestation of the disease. Once cancer occurs in a person, cancerous cells will be found in the body. Surgical removal of tumors in no way implies that one is cured of cancer. For example, breast cancer can relapse even if the original tumors were removed.Like hypertension and diabetes, cancer is a chronic disease. The disease may take a few years to manifest itself - from its occurrence until the emergence of tumors. In some cases, cancer cells may exist in a stage of ....

Defining Cancer

 

Cancer is a term used for diseases in which abnormal cells divide without control and are able to invade other tissues. Cancer cells can spread to other parts of the body through the blood and lymph systems. Cancer is not just one disease but also many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start.

The main categories of cancer include:

Carcinoma --cancer that begins in the skin or in tissues that line or cover internal organs.

Sarcoma -­ cancer that begins in bone, cartilage, fat, muscle, blood vessels, or other connective or supportive tissue.

Leukemia -­cancer that starts in blood-forming tissue such as the bone marrow and causes large numbers of abnormal blood cells to be produced and enter the blood.

Lymphoma and myeloma -­cancers that begin in the cells of the immune system.

Central nervous system cancers -­cancers that begin in the tissues of the brain and spinal cord.

 

Origins of Cancer

 

All cancers begin in cells, the body's basic unit of life. To understand cancer, it's helpful to know what happens when normal cells become cancer cells. The body is made up of many types of cells. These cells grow and divide in a controlled way to produce more cells as they are needed to keep the body healthy. When cells become old or damaged, they die and are replaced with new cells. However, sometimes this orderly process goes wrong. The genetic material (DNA) of a cell can become damaged or changed, producing mutations that affect normal cell growth and division. When this happens, cells do not die when they should and new cells form even when the body does not need them. The extra cells may form a mass of tissue called a tumor. Not all tumors are cancerous; tumors can be benign or malignant.

 

Benign tumors are not cancerous. They can often be removed, and, in most cases, they do not come back. Cells in benign tumors do not spread to other parts of the body.

Malignant tumors are cancerous. Cells in these tumors can invade nearby tissues and spread to other parts of the body. The spread of cancer from one part of the body to another is called "metastasis".

7 Steps Towards Prevention

 

What you can be sure of when it comes to cancer prevention is that making small changes to your everyday life plays a role in helping to reduce your lifetime risk of getting cancer. Take a look at the 7 steps below to see what changes you can make in your life.

Step 1: Don't use tobacco. Using tobacco puts you on a collision course for cancers of the esophagus, lip, lung, mouth, larynx, pancreas, throat, cervix, kidney, and others. Rejecting tobacco is one of the best decisions you can make about your health.

 

Step 2: Eat a variety of healthy foods. Eating a wide variety of healthy foods plays an important role in reducing your lifetime risk for cancer. The American Cancer Society recommends eating an abundance of food from plant-based sources, limiting fat, limiting the consumption of alcohol.

 

Step 3: Active lifestyle, and having a healthy body weight. Because obesity contributes to cancers of the colon, the esophagus, kidneys, the stomach, and uterus; physical activity can help control obesity.

 

Step 4: Protect yourself from the sun. Skin cancer is one of the most common kinds of cancer — and one of the most preventable. Nearly all skin cancer is treatable if you detect it early, but it's becer to prevent it in the first place. Try these tips:

Avoid peak radiation hours. The sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation peaks between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Minimize or avoid being outside during these hours. If you go outside, minimize your sun exposure by staying in the shade.

Cover exposed areas. Wear light-colored, loose-fitting clothing that protects you from the sun's rays. Use tightly woven fabrics that cover your arms and legs, and wear a broad-brimmed hat that covers your head and ears.

Don't skimp on sunscreen. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen that has a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15.

Don't use indoor tanning beds or sunlamps. These also can damage your skin. There's no such thing as a healthy tan.

 

Step 5: Get immunized. Certain cancers are associated with viral infections that can be prevented with immunizations. Talk to your health care professional about immunization against hepatitis B and HPV. Hepatitis B is associated with liver cancer while human papilloma virus (HPV) is a sexually transmiced disease than can lead to cervical cancer.

 

Step 6: Avoid risky behavior. HPV and HIV (AIDS) are both sexually transmiced diseases that are associated with cancers of the cervix, anus, penis, throat, vulva, vagina, liver, and others. Risky sexual behavior or the sharing of needles can also lead to hepatitis B or C. Both forms of hepatitis are linked to liver cancer.

 

Step 7: Cancer Screening. Regular screening and self-examination for certain cancers may not prevent cancer, but it can increase your chances of discovering cancer early — when treatment is more likely to be successful. Screening should include your skin, mouth, colon and rectum. If you're a man, it should also include your prostate and testes. If you're a woman, include cervix and breast cancer screening on your list. Be aware of changes in your body — this may help you detect cancer early, increasing your chances of successful treatment. If you notice any changes, see your doctor.

 

Facts About Screening

 

Tumor markers are substances produced by tumor cells or by other cells of the body in response to cancer. These markers can be found in the blood, in the urine, in the tumor tissue, or in other tissues. To date, researchers have identified more than a dozen substances that seem to be expressed abnormally when some types of cancer are present. Tumor markers are used in the detection, diagnosis, and management of some types of cancer.

Breast Cancer examinations (mammograms) are recommend annually for women starting at age 40; continuing as long as the woman is in good health. A clinical breast exam (CBE) should be part of a periodic health exam, about every 3 years for women in their 20's and 30's and every year for women 40 and over. Women should know how their breasts normally feel and report any breast change promptly to their health care providers. A breast self-exam (BSE) is an option for women starting in their 20's. Women at high risk (greater than 20% lifetime risk) should get an MRI and a mammogram every year.

Colon and rectal cancer examinations should begin for men and women at age 50. The tests that are designed to find both early cancer and polyps are recommended if these tests are available to you and you are willing to have one of these more invasive tests.

 

Cervical cancer screening should begin approximately 3 years after a woman begins vaginal intercourse, but not later than 21 years of age. A Pap test should be performed annually. Endometrial (uterine) cancer examinations should be performed at the time of menopause, as recommended by the American Cancer Society. Women who have a family history of hereditary non-polyposis colon cancer (HNPCC), should begin annual screening for uterine cancer beginning at age 35.

 

Prostate cancer examinations are not recommended to be performed routinely, but men over 45 should begin discussions with their health care professional about the positives and negatives associated with early detection of prostate cancer. Screenings would normally include a PSA blood test and digital rectal exam.

 

Lung cancer screening is especially important for people who smoke or for former smokers, even if they do not have any symptoms. However, 10-15% of lung cancer victims were not previous smokers. As stage 1 lung cancer has a relatively high cure rate, early detection is especially beneficial. The American Cancer Society recommends a spiral CT as one of the most powerful tools available for the early detection of lung cancer.

Liver cancer is especially common in Asian countries, though it can be found in people of any race our country. High-risk populations include those with hepatitis B, hepatitis C, or liver cirrhosis. Regular detection of serum AFP, CT, and an ultrasound examination can detect early hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) or small HCC. Detection of early HCC can result in a cure rate of more than 60%.
