Nolan Redpath's insight:

Signs and Symptoms Of Lung Cancer

 

 

Some of the symptoms of lung cancer are, a cough that doesnt go away and it gets worse over time. Chest pain that doesnt go away. Coughing up blood. Feeling short of breath, weeing, and also getting sick with bronchitis and pneumonia a lot.

Interesting facts:


There are two main types of lung cancer:

-Non–small cell lung cancer (NSCSC), this is the most common type of cancer, it grows slower then small cell lung cancer.

-Small cell lung cancer (SCLC), it grows faster and spreads easier. 

 

Did you know that a rare type of cancer called Pleural Mesothelioma is often mistaken for lung cancer. But, in Pleural Mesothelioma this condition of cancer starts in the lining of the lung and is different then lung cancer itself.  

 

Lena's Story: "Smoking caused my lungs to collapse four times before I was diagnosed with Emphysema at 42. Without my oxygen tank, it feels like I'm breathing through a straw. Just breathing is torture."

 

My story: 

Cancer runs on both sides of my family. On my mom's side my Great Grandma, Great Aunt and Grandma have all suffered from breast cancer. In order to ensure I do not trigger my cancer gene to become a cancer cell, I have a healthy diet, with regular exercise and doctor appointments. On my dad's side lung cancer is the main type. While learning about Lung Cancer I have received a better understanding about what has happened on both sides of my family. How to prevent it and also what questions I need to ask.

Interesting Fact

 

 

Cramps at rest are very common, especially in older adults, but may be experienced at any age, including childhood. Rest cramps often occur during the night. While not life threatening, night cramps, commonly known as nocturnal cramps, can be painful, disruptive of sleep, and they can recur frequently. The actual cause of night cramps is unknown. Sometimes, such cramps are initiated by making a movement that shortens the muscle.

       A muscle cramp is an involuntarily and forcibly contracted muscle that does not relax. Almost everyone experiences a muscle cramp at some time in their life. There are a variety of types and causes of muscle cramps. Most muscle cramps can be stopped if the muscle can be stretched. Muscle cramps can often be prevented by measures such as adequate nutrition and hydration, attention to safety when exercising, and attention to ergonomic factors.

Nolan Redpath's curator insight, April 12, 2013 4:57 PM

A muscle that involuntarily contracts is in a spasm. If the spasm is forceful and sustained, it becomes a cramp. Muscle cramps often cause a visible or palpable hardening of the involved muscle. It then becomes very painful to continue to use that muscle and you will most likely have to stop and stretch.

Nolan Redpath's curator insight, April 12, 2013 5:03 PM

Prevention

 

 Muscle cramps are common in adults and become increasingly frequent with aging. However, children also experience cramps of muscles. Stretching before and after exercise or sports, along with an adequate warm-up and cooldown, to prevent cramps that are caused by vigorous physical activity. Good hydration before, during, and after the activity is important, especially if the duration exceeds one hour, and replacement of lost electrolytes can also be helpful. Excessive fatigue, especially in warm weather, should be avoided.

   According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 7.6 million deaths globally each year are caused by cancer; cancer represents 13% of all global deaths. As seen below, lung cancer is by far the number one cancer killer.

 The National Cancer Institute says, by the end of 2012 there will have been 226,160 new lung cancer diagnoses and 160,340 lung-cancer related deaths in the USA alone.

     Lung Cancer is the growth of unhealthy tissue in one or both lungs. The tissue normally grows in the passages that air passes through.

    Instead of turning into healthy lung tissue it turns into tumors. Benign tumors do not spread, they stay in the same place.

    Tumors get bigger and bigger and prevent the lung from providing the bloodstream with enough oxygen. Malignant tumors spread to other parts of the body through the lympatic system or through the blood stream.

Christopher Mousset's curator insight, March 6, 2013 3:55 PM

Lung Cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells that start off in our lungs. the cells usually line the air passage. abnormal cells become tumors. they slow down the lungs ability to provide the bloodstream with oxygen. primary lung cancer starts in the lungs. Secondary lung cancer starts somewhere else and slowly makes its way toward the lungs. 1,370,000 people die each year on planet earth due to lung cancer

 

 

cancer is a result of cells that uncontrollably grow and dont die. programmed cell death is called apoptosis. when this fails cancer will forms. Lung cancer happens when a lungs cells gene mutation makes the cell unable to correct DNA damage and unable to commit suicide. SCARY STUFF MAN

What is lung cancer? : Canadian Lung Association

Nolan Redpath's insight:

Prevention

 

 

The biggest factor to lower your chances of getting lung cancer is smoking. The sooner you stop smoking the better. Smoking sufficently decrease the health of your lungs in many different ways. Also try to stay away from second-hand smoke. Another way to lower your chances is to check your home for Radon. This is a colourless odourless gas that can seep through walls.

Alex Gao's curator insight, March 4, 2013 5:08 PM

Overview: Lung cancer is a condition in which cancer cells grow out of control and start to take over other cells and organisms in the body. This certain type however, occurs strictly in the lungs, like the name suggests. There are two major forms of this cancer, non small cell and small cell cancer, small cell being a bit faster at spreading in the body. There is different ways to treat both. The main cause of the disease is from smoking, but there are different causes for this condition.

 

interesting fact: Many people are adamant that they will not develop lung cancer, but that is hard to say since many people will get lung cancer in their lives. In Canada, an average 70 people will be diagnosed with lung cancer in  a day. Also, 1 of 11 men and 1 in every 17 women will develop lung cancer. These are scary numbers, but are reality. You must do everything you can to lower your chances of developing it.
