Cancer is Curable- A New Way to Fight Cancer

Cancer is Curable- A New Way to Fight Cancer | Fight Against Breast Cancer | Scoop.it
Cancer is not just one disease but it is group of diseases that are being involved in abnormal growth of the cells, which are the building blocks of the human body. It has the potential to spread to other parts of the body. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most of them are named from where they start in the body. Lung Cancer, Breast Cancer, Skin Cancer, Blood Cancer, Colon Cancer, Prostate Cancer and Lymphoma are the different types of cancer. The spread of cancer from one part of the body to another is known as metastasis.

Cancer is not just one disease but it is group of diseases that are being involved in abnormal growth of the cells, which are the building blocks of the human body. It has the potential to spread to other parts of the body. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most of them are named from where they start in the body. Lung Cancer, Breast Cancer, Skin Cancer, Blood Cancer, Colon Cancer, Prostate Cancer and Lymphoma are the different types of cancer. The spread of cancer from one part of the body to another is known as metastasis. 

The different cancer stages define how deeply it has been grown in the nearby body tissues. 

Possible early signs and symptoms of cancer may include a lump, abnormal bleeding and pain in the body part, prolonged cough, weight loss and change in the bowel movements. It has been rightly said, “Early Detection is the best protection”. The early the disease is being diagnosed and treated, the better are the chances of it being cured. Some types of cancers are being detected by self-routine exam whereas the others are being detected only when some tumor is being felt or when other symptoms develop in the body. Also, sometimes cancer is being detected as a result of evaluating or treating other medical problem. 

Symptoms and cancer treatment depends upon its types and also upon the severity of the disease. A few cancers are curable, like several leukemia and lymphomas, which are curable with chemotherapy and radiation, and other solid tumors like breast cancer, blood cancer that are curable with a combination of surgery, radiations or a chemotherapy. But unfortunately, cancer at an early stage is still curable rather than a metastatic stage IV cancer. 

The unexpected journey of cancer often brings exhausting emotional challenges and financial burdens. Keeping hope is the natural healing process of this disease. The Cancer Awareness Measure provides the set of questions, which have been designed to reliably assess awareness of cancer among the general population. It includes questions on warning-signs, symptoms, help seeking, risk factors, cancer and age, screening programs and also about the types of cancers. Getting involved in spreading the awareness and supporting the people might help to optimize the impact of cancer. 

Recently, governmental institutions and agencies, non-governmental and charity organizations have laid more emphasis on improving health standards, promoting early detection, providing comprehensive treatment and also on providing support for cancer management, screening and rehabilitation. All such actions have resulted in the early detection of cancer thus resulting in improving survival and quality of life of Indian Cancer Patients.

Breast Cancer gets developed in human body from the breast tissue. It is a malignant tumor, which can also spread to other parts of the body. It generally occurs in females. The early signs of breast cancer may include a lump in the breast, a change in the size or shape of the breast, a rash around the nipple, pain or swelling in the armpit, fluid or blood coming out of the nipple or redness in and around the breast area. Breast Cancer is one of the most common invasive cancers found in the females. 

Recently, there has been seen a rise in the number of incidents of Breast Cancer in India. Breast Cancer is one of the commonest cancers in India. Because of lack of awareness of this disease and in the absence of a breast cancer-screening program, this disease is diagnosed at a relatively later stage. There are several myths, which surround around it and make it even more difficult to fight it. The only way to overcome is by spreading awareness of this disease and knowing more facts about the breast cancer.

One of the myth states that breast cancer affects only the older women. But the fact is that it has been lately seen that the majority of women have been diagnosed with breast cancer at a much earlier age. Some people are also not aware about the fact that breastfeeding doesn’t prevent breast cancer, but reduces the risk. Breast Screening helps in detecting the disease and doesn’t prevent it. Although the precise causes of this disease are still unclear, but there is major risk factors that can lead to the development of breast cancer. Having the family history of this disease is one of the main risk factor being involved. 

Obesity is another noteworthy risk factor, and drinking alcohol regularly may promote this disease. Diet rich in fat can also lead to promotion of breast cancer. BRCA1 and BRCA2 are the types of genes, which have been identified responsible for some instances of familial breast cancer. Breast Cancer is found to be more common in urban females than in rural areas females in India. Because of the large variation in the health standards of regions in India, the quality of treatment available in India also varies distinctly. 

Also, the type of treatment depends upon the type of breast cancer, stage of cancer and other medical reports of the patient. Breast Cancer surgery, Chemotherapy, Radiation Therapy. Hormone Therapy, Targeted Drug Therapy are some of the methods used for treating the breast cancer patients in India. India also has the most renowned hospitals with trained and experienced oncologists for all types of cancer patients. 

Recently, governmental institutions and agencies, non-governmental and charity organizations have laid more emphasis on improving health standards, promoting early detection, providing comprehensive treatment and also on providing support for breast cancer management, screening and rehabilitation. All such actions have resulted in the early detection of cancer thus resulting in improving survival and quality of life of Indian Cancer Patients.

Dharamshila Hospital and Research Centre's insight:

When we look for cancer prior to an individual having any symptoms at all, it is termed as screening. With the help of screening one can detect and diagnose an early stage cancer, as a timely diagnosis of cancer improves the prognosis.

Choosing a cancer center is an unavoidable decision when one is diagnosed with cancer. Poring over numerous statistics, asking for referrals from friends and family, and researching hospitals in the area can be a daunting task. Many patients feel powerless, scared, and defeated. They face an intimidating medical condition and often don't know where to turn for accurate information, help, and comfort.
