Cancer is a disorder which affects cells in human body. These cells are the smallest building blocks of all the organs and there are millions of them in our body.
Cancer occurs when uncontrolled production and spread of the unusual cells takes place within the body. Normal cells in our body divide grow in size and number and then stop. They even die after a period of time. However, cancerous cells do not follow this normal cycle. They divide relatively quickly and keep on growing. Normally they don’t die and create clumps by joining together. These clumps are called tumors.
These tumors can obstruct the proper functioning of the surrounding healthy tissues and can destroy them, causing the victim to suffer a lot.
Moreover, it can easily travel to other body parts. Tumors can break and travel to other organs and body parts. This broken part of tumor when stops in a body part, it starts growing there and creates new tumor, a process called metastasis.
Dealing with cancer can be really painful. In order to avoid that suffering, early diagnosis is imperative and that can be done only if you are aware of the symptoms. Some are given here.
Change in skin in the form of a wart or a mole
A lump in the breast or testicles
Prominent change in bladder and bowel movement
Unusual bleeding or vaginal discharge
Continued sore throat that does not heal
A persistent cough, sometimes accompanied with blood
Indigestion and trouble in swallowing
Though, some of these symptoms may be because of other lesser dangerous disorders but even then if you suffer from any one of them, you should immediately consult a doctor. Though the cause of cancer is still not known but what we know is that it is not contagious. Though, the exact cause is not known but drinking, and excess alcohol consumption can increase the chances of this dangerous disease.
A few years ago, the news that someone has cancer could mean the end of everything for him. It meant there is no hope left. However, the situation has changed a lot today. Now we have many options to fight this once difficult disease. We have today, many examples of those who managed to fight this disease and could survive e.g. Lance Armstrong. The survivors are leading today a normal life, without any signs of illness.
When it comes to the cancer treatment options, every patient would be unique and one type of treatment can not be applied equally for every one. Every patient would be treated according to his own unique level of illness. Today, the cancer treatment include, chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, moral support, nutrition, naturopathic treatment and mental and bodily encouragement and motivation to enhance will power.
