Do you know about Cancer and its causes?

The Indian entertainment industry has lost two veteran actors one Mr. Irfan Khan and the other Sri.Rishi Kapoor. both lost the battle against cancer & colon infection at this point in time I would like to share with you all collective information about cancer and its causes for awareness and precautions.

a group of diseases where cells grow uncontrollably is called Cancer and it spreads abnormal cells throughout the body.

Worldwide Cancer is a common disease nowadays. According to a recent study, approximately one in 4 men and one in 5 women worldwide develop cancer during their lifetime. And the same way one in 10 Indians will develop cancer during their lifetime and one in 15 will die from the disease in the country. Statistics go on like this worldwide.

In the US, one in every two males and one in every three females will be diagnosed with invasive cancer in their lifetime, for this reason, it's really important to know more about what cancer is in detail, what makes it up, and how it can be treated.

There are 100 plus different types of cancer. Most cancers are named after the organ or type of cell in which they start.

Some types of cancers are more common in certain racial or ethnic groups than others.
  • Lung,
  • breast,
  • prostate, and
  • colon cancers 

are the most common cancers. Other than these there are Blood cancer, thyroid cancer, bone cancer, skin cancer, ovarian cancer, etc.,

Anyone can get cancer at any age, but the risk goes up as people get older as they have a low immune system and stamina.

Cancer begins in our cells when the genetic material, or DNA, is damaged or changed. DNA tells our body how and when to make new cells.

Normally, our body forms new cells as and when we need them, replacing old cells that die or become damaged. When the DNA is damaged or changed, cells might not die when they should die and new cells might form, when the body doesn't need them.

These extra cells form a mass which is called a tumor. Some tumors are cancerous, or malignant. If not treated at the initial stage, Cells from malignant tumors can invade nearby tissues.

In many cases, they break away and spread, or metastasize, to other parts of the body via the blood and lymph systems.

At the simplest level, cancer or cancer cells are cells that have lost the ability (original identity) to follow the normal control that the body exerts on all cells.

In our body, we have billions and billions of cells and they have different functions to do. It's a very complicated process under incredibly phenomenal control, and if something goes wrong and that control is lost and particular cells escape from the normal control mechanisms and they continue to grow and they may spread that's what science call cancer.

As those cells grow and divide, they turn into a mass or they clump together and that's what we would call a tumor and then they can get smart and then spread other places and that's what we call metastasis.

Cancer can actually start anywhere in the body because there are cells everywhere in the whole human body.

In women, breast cancer is the most common cancer in many. In men, prostate cancer and in both men and women lung cancer and colon cancer are common cancers.

One of the things we're now understanding is that just because one has breast cancer doesn't mean that their breast cancer is the same as the lady who's sitting next to her have breast cancer and therefore one can get an individual treatment plan that's based on an individual and their particular cancer type.

Once the diagnosis of cancer is made.

There are several things that are really relevant, the stage of cancer and where is cancer?.

If one says it's a particular kind of cancer, then these tests to be done.
  • how much cancer is present? 
  • Has it spread?
  • Is it in lymph nodes?
  • whether it’s spread to other organs of the body?

Cancer treatment actually is very complex and part of the reason is that cancer is this constellation of over 250 plus different diseases.

Cancers have some common characteristics but they're all very different from each other. In addition to this, cancer is not self homogeneous.

There may be two to five or six different small variations in the cancer cells that are there in that person.

Some ask, 'why, why does their cancer not go away, it shrunk by seventy-five percent. 

What's wrong with the other twenty-five percent?'

Well, it's probably different subtype of that cancer which is going to require a different kind of treatment.

Primary proven methods for the treatment of cancer are surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy.

Surgery is when literally remove cancer. make an incision, find cancer, and cut it off/out.

Radiation is actually taking what science call photons, the same thing that used to take an x-ray picture in order to treat a focal area of cancer.

Chemotherapy is using a drug or chemical that's either taken by mouth as a pill or given through an IV("intravenous.") into the vein targeting those cells that are dividing more quickly.

Receiving a diagnosis of cancer can be a terrifying thing. The good news is at present is probably the most exciting time in history in terms of the treatment of cancer options that didn't exist a few months ago certainly didn't exist a few years ago.

Like the ability to genomically profile a tumor and to take that individualized fingerprint of that cancer may direct doctors to tailor treatment in very specific ways.

As doctors learn genetic abnormalities in individual cancers, they're able to more effectively target those abnormalities for individual cancer, not only to improve the outcome for the patients relative to cancer but also hopefully result in fewer side effects because the targets will hopefully be less in the normal tissue and more in cancer itself.

New drugs have now been designed to treat the immune system, how to see the cancer cells for what they are so the immune system can actually do the job at killing off those bad cells.

Experts have unlocked a key interaction in how cancer cells and immune cells interact and by affecting that interaction teaches the immune cell to be smarter and see the cancer cell for what it is and how to get rid of them.

At many cancer treatment centers now have a very robust, advanced, integrative oncology program. Integrative advanced oncology is taking those conventional oncology treatments and integrating those with therapies like acupuncture, naturopathic medicine, chiropractic, nutrition, to blend those together and to create the most appropriate treatment plan for that each individual patient at that moment of time.

So having the symptoms and side effects under control, having nutritional status and immune system as well as energy supported during treatment better positions patient to fight cancer and tolerate the treatment course.

Many cancer treatment hospitals across the world nowadays have all their resources under one roof. All of those expert team members really try to address any sort of side effects or symptoms that one may be having before they occur because of advancements in medical technology and the experience of treating cancer.

If we can keep our body strong if we can keep our hope up and we feeling strong emotions and if we can keep the immune system in a good place we can tolerate the treatment much better.

Now it’s important to understand what causes cancer?

The medical research over the past 30 years has led to the discovery of exactly what causes cancers. Mutations cause cancers, like

what causes these mutations?

Three factors are responsible.

First random errors occur 

every time a cell divides and copies its DNA to make two new cells. This routine process happens millions of times every day, in everyone's body, and usually does no harm.

But cancers possibly occur when such errors, simply through bad fate, affect an important gene, rather than an unimportant gene.

Recent research suggests that nearly two- thirds of the mutations that cause cancer are due to these errors, this is sort of bad luck.

The second factor is environmental.

Some people add to the number of mutations in their bodies by their behavior, such as sunbathing or smoking.

The third factor is inherited.

Some people are born with mutations that make them more likely to get cancer.

No matter what cancer any patient has, he/she is a person who has a life and family and friends and so forth and so their goal as an oncologist is to not only get rid of cancer but for the patient to then live a normal life again.

They're more effective with fewer side effects and faster recovery so that patients can live as normal life as long as they can.

we've never had better opportunities than we do have today.

some cancers are inevitable, we believe that more research to find ways to detect cancers even in its earlier stage while they are still curable, is needed of the time.
