You should see your doctor for regular checkups and not wait for problems to occur . But you should also know that the following symptoms may be associated with cancer: changes in bowel or bladder habits, a sore that does not heal, unusual bleeding or discharge, thickening or lump in the breast or any other part of the body, indigestion or difficulty swallowing, obvious change in the wart or mole, or nagging cough or hoarseness. These symptoms are not always a sign of cancer. They can also be caused by less serious conditions. Only a doctor can make a diagnosis. It is important to see a doctor if you have any of these symptoms. Don’t wait to feel pain: Early cancer usually does not cause pain.
People of all aces get cancer, but nearly all types are more common in middle aged and elderly people than in young people. Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer for both men and women. The next most common type among men is prostate cancer; among women, it is breast cancer. Lung cancer, however, is the leading cause of death from cancer for both men and women . Brain cancer and leukemia are the most common cancers in children and young adults.
The more we can learn about what causes cancer, the more likely we are to find ways to prevent it. Scientists study patterns of cancer in the population to look for factors that affect the risk of developing this disease. In the laboratory, they explore possible causes of cancer and try to determine what actually happens when normal cells become cancerous.
Our current understanding of the causes of cancer is incomplete, but it is clear that cancer is not caused by an injury, such as a bump or bruise. And although being infected with certain viruses may increase the risk of some types of cancer, cancer is not contagious no one can “catch” cancer from another person.
Cancer develops gradually as a result of a complex mix of factors related to environment, lifestyle, and heredity. Scientists have identified many risk factors that increase the chance of getting cancer. They estimate that about 80 percent of all cancers are related to the use of tobacco products, to what we eat and drink, or, to a lesser extent, to exposure to radiation or cancer-causing agents (carcinogens) in the environment and the workplace. Some people are more sensitive than others to factors that can cause cancer.
Many risk factors can be avoided. Others, such as inherited risk factors, are, unavoidable. It is helpful to be aware of them, but it Is also important to keep in mind that not everyone with a particular risk factor for cancer actually gets the disease; in fact, most do not. People at risk can help protect themselves by avoiding risk factors where possible and by getting regular checkups so that, if cancer develops, it is likely to be found early.
These are some of the factors that are known to increase the risk of cancer.
Tobacco – Tobacco causes cancer. In fact, smoking tobacco, using smokeless, tobacco, and being regularly exposed to environmental tobacco smoke without smoking are responsible for one-third of all cancer deaths. Smoking accounts for more than 85 percent of all lung cancer deaths. If you smoke, your risk of getting lung cancer is affected by the number and type of cigarettes you smoke and how long you have been smoking. Overall, for those who smoke one pack a day, the chance of setting lung cancer is about 10 times greater than for nonsmokers.
Smokers are also more likely than nonsmokers to develop several other types of cancer (such as oral cancer and cancers of the larynx, esophagus, pancreas, bladder, kidney, and cervix). The risk of cancer begins to decrease when a smoker quits, and the risk continues to decline gradually each year after quitting.
The use of smokeless tobacco (chewing, tobacco and snuff) causes cancer of the mouth and throat. Pre-cancerous conditions, or tissue changes that may lead to cancer, begin to go away after a person stops using smokeless tobacco.
Exposure to environmental tobacco smokes, also called involuntary smoking, increases the risk of lung cancer for nonsmokers. The risk goes up 30 percent or more for a nonsmoking spouse of a person who smokes. Involuntary smoking causes about 3,000 lung cancer deaths in this country each year.
If you use tobacco in any form and you need help quitting, talk with your doctor or dentist, or join a smoking cessation group sponsored by a local hospital or voluntary organization.
Diet : Your choice of foods may affect your chance of developing cancer. Evidence points to a link between eating foods that are none organic, hormone fed or GMO and certain cancers, such as cancer of the breast, colon, uterus, and prostate. Being seriously overweight appears to be linked to increased rates of cancer of the prostate, pancreas, uterus, Colon, and ovary, and to breast cancer in older women. On the other hand, studies suggest that foods containing fiber and certain nutrients help protect us against some types of cancer. You may be able to reduce your cancer risk by making some dietary changes. Try to have a varied, well-balanced diet that includes generous amounts of foods that are high in, vitamins, and minerals. At the same time, try to cut down on grains and sugars are a No, No. You should eat lots of organic vegetables each day, wheatgrass juice, see the dietary section of this website. No processed foods eat spinach, greens, eggs, high-fat meat, high-fat dairy products (such as whole milk, butter, and most cheeses), avoid salad dressings, margarine, and most cooking oils. Cook in Coconut oil.
Sunlight : Ultraviolet radiation from the sun and from other sources (such as sunlamps and tanning booths) damages the skin and can cause skin cancer. (Two types of ultraviolet radiation–UVA and UVB–are explained in the Medical Terms section.) Repeated exposure to ultraviolet radiation increases the risk of skin cancer, especially if you have fair skin or freckle easily. The sun is ultraviolet rays are strongest during the summer from about 11 a.m. to about 3 p.m. (daylight saving time). The risk is greatest at this time, when the sun is high overhead and shadows are short. As a rule, it is best to avoid the sun when your shadow is shorter than you are.
Protective clothing, such as a hat and, long sleeves, can help block the sun’s harmful rays. You can also use natural sunscreens to help protect yourself. Many sunscreens are carcinogenic but you can make natural sun cream in minutes.
Alcohol. Drinking, large amount of alcohol increases the risk of cancer of the mouth, throat, esophagus, and larynx. (People who smoke cigarettes and drink alcohol have an especially high risk of getting these cancers.) Alcohol can damage the liver and increase the risk of liver cancer. Some studies suggest that drinking alcohol also increases the risk of breast cancer. So if you drink at all, do so in moderation-not more than one or two drinks a day.
Radiation : X-rays used for diagnosis expose you to radiation, see our article re Radiation.
Chemicals and other substances in the home and workplace being exposed to substances such as metals, make –up, chemical deodorants, chemical air fresheners, cleaning products, body sprays, perfumes, dust chemicals, or pesticides at work can increase the risk of cancer. Asbestos, nickel, cadmium, uranium, radon, vinyl chloride, benzidene, and benzene are well-known examples of carcinogens in the workplace. These may act alone or along with another carcinogen, such as cigarette smoke. For example, inhaling asbestos fibers increases the risk of lung diseases, including cancer, and the cancer risk is especially high for asbestos workers who smoke. It is important to follow work and safety rules to avoid contact with dangerous materials.
Never forget that many pharmaceutical products and vaccines prescribed by your physician are also carcinogenic, always research all of the ingredients before taking them.
Many people with cancer want to learn all they can about their disease and their treatment choices so they can take an active part in decisions about their medical care. Often, it helps to make a list of questions to ask. Patients may take notes or, with the consent of their preferred healer, tape record the discussion. Some patients also find it helps to have a family member or friend with them when they talk with their preferred consultant to take part in the discussion, to take notes, or just to listen.
Here are some questions may want to ask the doctor:
� What is my diagnosis?
� What is the stage of the disease?
� What are my treatment choices? Which do you recommend for Me? Why?
� What are the chances that the treatment will be successful?
� Would a clinical trial be appropriate for me?
� What are the risks and possible side effects of each treatment?
� How long will the treatment last?
� Will I have to change my normal activities?
� What is the treatment likely to cost?
When a person is diagnosed with cancer, shock and stress are natural reactions. These feelings may make it difficult to think of every question to ask. Patients may find it hard to remember everything said. They shall not feel they need to ask all their questions or remember all the answers at one time. They will have other chances for the proffesional to explain things that are not clear and to ask for more information.
Side Effects of Cancer Treatment
It is hard to limit the effects of traditional treatment such as chemo, radiation and surgery so that only cancer cells are removed or destroyed. Because treatment also damages healthy cells and tissues, it often causes unpleasant side effects or death. We have had much preferred results with natural options that will not take quality of life or harm other vital organs.
Surgery -The side effects of surgery depend on the location of the tumor, the type of operation, the patient’s general health, and other factors. Although patients are often uncomfortable during the first few days after surgery, this pain is often controlled with chemical medicine that is carcinogenic (cancer causing). Patients should also be aware that no anesthetic is safe. It is also common for patients to feel tired or weak for a while. The length of time it takes to recover from an operation varies for each patient.
Radiation Therapy With radiation therapy, the side effects are terrible, radiation can take away you quality of life and does not work in many cases but traditional methods are few, so they continue to use these barbaric methods. The most common side effects are that radiation will deplete all of your natural immunity leaving you no immune system to fight a common cold. Also have in mind that hospital temperatures are the perfect breeding ground for viral loads.
Please see my article about the dangers of Chemotherapy.
Most cancers form in the body after the patient has suffered stress by a death in the family, divorce or financial problems. When we are stressed our immune system fails which allows cells to run rife in our bodies. Cancer is not an alien that landed from a foreign planet, we grew this in our bodies over a course of time by lifestyle and other factors.
We first of all build the immune system to fight this disease, without a good immune system your body is not ready for the fight. Cancer affects us and our families mentally and it is important to deal with these issues also. Healing your body from cancer is an education.
Our skin is our largest organ; we therefore must stop using chemical products on or around our skin.
Stop cleaning with chemicals that we breath. Stop eating processed and GMO foods, illuminate all sugars that feed cancer. Remove all amalgam fillings containing mercury, no root canal fillings giving cancer a feed. Stop eating meat that is hormone fed, no drinking water with fluoride. Let food be thy medicine, we eat to live not live to eat!
Say no to vaccines, see my article vaccines!
We treat each person as an individual; therefore we design and teach about protocols for the individual. Your body is not well balanced, hence why you have cancer, it is important to balance your body again with hormones, sulphur, vitamin D, vitamin B as well as many other minerals and vitamins, when your body is back in balance it will naturally start to heal its self. Let’s work together at feeding your body with what it needs to heal its self.
