LATEST SYMPTOMS THAT ARISE BEFORE A PATIENT GET INTO CANCEROUS STAGE 😦
1.Dehydration (not having enough fluid in your body)
5.Nausea and/or vomiting
HOW CAN A PERSON COME TO KNOW THAT HE/SHE IS HAVING CANCER ???
Each person’s illness and situation is unique, and so the person’s health care team
is in the best position to provide specific information about what each person can
expect. Some of the symptoms result from the type of cancer and where it’s located.
Medications may also cause some side effects. As well, there are some general effects
of cancer, which lead to some common symptoms as cancer progresses.
As cancer progresses it usually affects the whole body. These indicators mark the
change in someone’s condition and the progression of the disease:
–> energy and strength
Top 10 Foods That Increase Cancer Risk
1. All charred food, which create heterocyclic aromatic amines, known carcinogens. Even dark toast is suspect.
2. Well-done red meat. Medium or rare is better, little or no red meat is best.
3. Sugar, both white and brown–which is simply white sugar with molasses added. (See Care2′s Directory of Natural Sweeteners for great, healthy alternatives.)
4. Heavily salted, smoked and pickled foods, which lead to higher rates of stomach cancer.
5. Sodas/soft drinks, which pose health risks, both for what they contain–sugar and various additives–and for what they replace in the diet–beverages and foods that provide vitamins, minerals and other nutrients.
6. French fries, chips and snack foods that contain trans fats.
7. Food and drink additives such as aspartame.
8. Excess alcohol.
9. Baked goods, for the acrylamide.
10. Farmed fish, which contains higher levels of toxins such as PCBs.
What are the treatment options for cancer?
Treatment options vary, depending on the type of cancer and how far it has grown and
spread. See the separate leaflets on the specific cancers for more details. There is
also another leaflet called Staging and Grading Cancer which discusses how a cancer
is classified depending on its type (grading) and how far it has spread in the body
(staging). Briefly, the three most common treatments are:
Surgery. It may be possible to cut out a cancerous (malignant) tumour.
Chemotherapy. This is a treatment that uses anti-cancer medicines to kill cancer
cells, or to stop them from multiplying. There are various different types of
medicines used for chemotherapy. The medicine or combination of medicines selected
depends on the type of cancer being treated.
Radiotherapy. This is a treatment that uses high-energy beams of radiation which are
focused on cancerous tissue. This kills cancer cells, or stops cancer cells from
More recently, other treatments have been introduced which include:
Stem cell transplant. High-dose chemotherapy may damage bone marrow cells and lead to
blood problems. However, if you receive healthy bone marrow after the chemotherapy
then this helps to overcome this problem.
Hormone therapy. This is the use of medicines to block the effects of hormones. This
treatment may be used for cancers that are hormone-sensitive such as some cancers of
the breast, prostate and womb (uterus).
Immunotherapy. Some treatments can boost the immune system to help to fight cancer.
More specific immunotherapy involves injections of antibodies which aim to attack
and destroy certain types of cancer cells. Research is underway to try to find
vaccines that would stimulate your own immune system to make antibodies against
Gene therapy. This is a new area of possible treatments. Research is underway to
find ways of blocking, repairing or replacing abnormal genes in cancer cells.
Special techniques. These can sometimes be used to cut off the blood supply to
tumours. The tumour then dies.
For some cancers, a combination of two or more treatments may be used. A range of
other treatments may also be used to ease cancer-related symptoms such as pain.
