Treating Cancer with Vaporizers

Guest Post by Igor 

Cancer is a frightening, deadly disease that claims the lives of millions. However, wouldn’t it be wonderful if a treatment existed that was as easy as taking a breath in? According to the University of Strathclyde, vaporizers can be used to treat certain forms of lung cancer like mesothelioma, instead of much harsher forms of treatment like chemotherapy and radiation.

Delivering the medication through a nebulizer means it gets directly to the area that requires treatment instead of being spread around the body haphazardly. It’s also much less invasive because people only need to inhale it. That’s all.

Another benefit of using vaporizers in this fashion is how quickly the medication can be administered. It also eliminates the risk of kidney damage, because it never actually enters the bloodstream. It just goes straight to the lungs. Plus, smaller doses of these potent drugs can be used for the same effect because it doesn’t have to travel through the entire body before it gets to where it needs to go.

This is good news, especially since lung cancers like mesothelioma claim thousands of lives each year. In Scotland, asbestos was used often in construction and it is asbestos exposure that is the cause of this form of cancer. It often appears many years after the initial exposure, as much as 20 to 50 years. The asbestos fibers embed themselves in the lungs and the tissue surrounding the lungs causing irritation. Over time, tumors form.

Though prevention is still the best form of treatment for cancer, administering drugs more effectively and precisely can do a world of good for those already diagnosed. Often, cancer patients succumb to the side effects caused by cancer treatment for chemotherapy and radiation. These treatments break the body down and make it less resilient, effectively destroying the immune system. By targeting only the area that has the cancer, you put the body at less risk of side effects and you do more toward keeping the immune system as a whole intact.

Using vaporizers to distribute medication to lung cancer patients makes it possible to provide the treatment without damaging healthy cells, or at least fewer healthy cells. This is a major advantage to this kind of treatment. Without so many side effects, patients stand to get the full benefits of the treatment and may be able to endure more treatments than those who get the intravenous doses, putting them on a path toward an improved likelihood of recovery.

Burn Fat for Improved Wellness

Guest Post by Roger Navidad Pahuriray

People burn fat and lose weight for different reasons. Celebrity mom Kate Hudson did a lot of cardio, yoga, and pilates after giving birth in order to shed off the pounds she gained during her pregnancy. Kate is just one of the many celebrity mothers who work out hard to regain their pre-pregnancy figures. In short, they are those who shed the extra pounds for beauty and vanity.

 Many, however, do it for health reasons. For example, The Today Show anchor and weatherman Al Roker had a gastric bypass surgery in an effort to lose some of his 320-pound weight. Although he had to undergo surgery, Al did manage to lose 100 lbs. 8 months after having the procedure done. He successfully achieved his goal of becoming a much healthier version of himself. 

Then there are those who workout, burn fat, and lose weight to feel better about themselves. Grammy and Academy award winner Jennifer Hudson did exactly that when she decided to lose weight. She became Weight Watchers’ spokesperson and lost a total of 56 lbs. She even wrote a book about it, a biography entitled I Got This: How I Changed My Ways and Lost What Weighed Me Down. Since losing the weight, Jennifer Hudson has appeared in numerous shows and red carpet events looking stunning and obviously pleased with how she looks. 

Whatever the reason, the process and after effects of burning fat and losing weight can do wonders for a person’s wellness. Wellness, after all, is not just about a person’s physical state of health. It’s also about a person’s mental and emotional wellness, social wellness, and spiritual wellness. When a person works out, all factors that affect one’s well-being can be improved. Yoga, for example, is a form of workout that not only challenges one physically and burn fat. It also involves some form of meditation which means it can relax the mind and relieve one of stress. It allows one person to improve his mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness. The relief from stress can also affect one’s social wellness as it can improve one’s mood and interaction with others. Exercise, after all, can produce endorphins – the happy hormones capable of alleviating the symptoms of mild to average depression. Exercise also increases the levels of serotonin, a chemical in the brain that cancels off negative perspectives produced by depression. So if a person is free from depression or at least the symptoms of it, he or she can function quite well and can interact healthily with other people.

 Working out also gives you the chance to improve your social wellness. By going to the gym, attending workout classes, joining marathons, or enlisting in a fitness club, a person is able to widen his or her network of friends. The friendships formed with fellow weight-watchers and dieters can serve as a needed motivation to stay fit. Long-term friendships also mean forming bonds with people who can form a major support group that can help you with personal issues when you feel overwhelmed. 

In other words, exercise has a big effect on one’s wellness. Just 2 hours of exercise at least 2 or 3 times a day is enough to induce some positive changes in a person’s life.

Mouth Cancer Awareness

Whilst being the most serious risk arising from poor dental hygiene, mouth cancer is one of the less common forms of cancer. The term mouth or oral cancer can be used to refer to cancer on the surface of the tongue, mouth, lips, gums, the salivary glands, tonsils and the pharynx. Mouth or oral cancer is one of the least common forms of cancer, and arises among 1 in 50 cancer cases approximately. Approximately 6,200 people are diagnosed with oral cancer each year in the UK; most of these are over 60 and it affects more men than women. There have been more cases of younger people with oral cancer in recent years, which are believed to be caused by increased alcohol usage or exposure to HPF.

What are the causes of mouth cancer?

The most common causes of mouth cancer include:
  • Tobacco and alcohol – No surprises that these are the main causes of mouth cancer. A cancer study in UK found that a third of mouth and throat cancers were caused by drinking alcohol. People who smoke and drink are at the highest risk for oral cancer. Chewing tobacco or betel quid (another chewable tobacco mix which is popular in developing countries) is one the highest causes of mouth cancer in developing countries.
  • Diet - A poor diet can increase the risk of oral cancer due to a lack of zinc or other vitamins and minerals. Diets that contain lots of red meat and fried food are thought to increase the chances of oral cancer. A well-balanced diet, with plenty of protein and zinc is recommended. A diet containing fresh fruit and vegetables is believed to reduce the risk of oral cancer, as these are likely to contain Vitamin A which helps protect against mouth cancer.
  • Human Papilloma Virus is the virus that causes genital warts, and is increasingly being thought to cause oral cancer. It is believed that increased levels of oral sex amongst younger people are leading to this.
What are the symptoms of mouth cancer?
  • One or more mouth ulcers that do not heal, or bleed easily on touch
  • Persistent pain in the mouth or throat
  • Red or white patches in the mouth or on the tongue
  • Prolonged swelling in the mouth
What are the treatment options?

There are three main treatment options for mouth cancer:
  • Surgery – an operation can remove the cancerous cells, and in some cases some of the surrounding tissue
  • Chemotherapy – powerful medications are used to kill cancerous cells
  • Radiotherapy – high energy X-rays are used to kill cancerous cells
These treatments are often used in combination. For example, a course of radiotherapy and chemotherapy may be given after surgery to help prevent the cancer from returning.

What are the chances of survival?

Mouth cancer is usually curable if it is discovered at an early stage. It is estimated that 80% people with early-stage mouth cancer will live at least five years after their diagnosis, and many for a lot longer.

If oral cancer reaches an advanced stage the outlook becomes poor. This is particularly true if the cancer has spread outside of the mouth and into the surrounding tissue. In these cases it is estimated that only 1 in 5 people will live for at least five years after their diagnosis.

Lip Cancer Therapy

Lip cancer therapy is a method of tackling cancer of lips and avoiding lip cancer recurrence. It is also useful to limit cancerous infection to as lower lip cancer stages as possible and avoid their metastasis. Therapy for lip cancer is given in a manner suitable to address physical and mental constraints of a victim. Main aim of undergoing therapy is not just controlling tumors but controlling them without causing much impact on victim's body. Thus, apt form of therapy for lip cancer should be undergone in order to ensure safe recovery.

Why Lip Cancer Therapy?

Infection in lips can be both cancerous and non-cancerous. Non-cancerous infection is generally a low-intensity cell abnormality and can be easily controlled by general medical methods. Cancer experts need not be approached in such conditions unless the infection keeps recurring or causes further severe or irreparable damage to lips or other areas.

Another major reason to undergo therapy for lip cancer is to prevent secondary growth of tumors in other areas of body. Cancer can be either primary or secondary and chances of survival are different for both these types. Primary cancer, or the cancerous growth initiated firstly in lips and then spread to other areas, is easy to control in initial stages. Such cancer causes destruction once the tumors start to metastasize and spread to various regions. Primary cancer of lips can be a cause for secondary growth of tumors in some other areas of the victim's body. Same is the case with primary  cancers of other parts which reach lips as secondary form of tumors. Hence, controlling both primary and secondary growth of either lips or other regions is extremely important to treat the disorder efficiently.

Undergoing Lip Cancer Therapy

Lip cancer occurrence or recurrence is dependent on various factors. People above 40 years have high chances of lip cancer infection thus, making age an important aspect to be considered in therapy for the disease. Men are more likely to get infected by cancer of lips and record more number of lip-cancer deaths in comparison to females. Thus, gender of victim should also be considered while recommending a kind of lip cancer treatment.

People of black race have more chances of lip cancer infection in comparison to white ones. Family medical history is also a vital aspect to be given due consideration while planning a particular form of therapy. Considerable number of people with personal history of cancer are likely to suffer from  lip cancer recurrence in future. Hence, proper lip cancer diagnosis is extremely important to check status of cell-development process and recommend preventive or curative measures to a person accordingly.

Various Therapies for Lip Cancer

Radiotherapy is the most vital and stern form of therapy useful in advanced stages of lip cancer. It is given through tumor exposure to harmful radiations. Such radiations not only kill tumors and tumor-cells but also cause some damage to nearby tissues. Hence, it has a wide number of side-effects. Chemotherapy is useful to treat tumors by taking medically prescribed anti-cancer drugs with high chemical content. Cryosurgery is a useful way to eliminate tumors by passing them through liquid nitrogen. Surgery is the most basic way to treat tumors and is of various ways like local and wide local excision, laparoscopy, lymph node surgery, and plastic surgery(kind of re-constructive surgery).  

Lip cancer therapies can be given only when proper lip cancer diagnosis is done. Healthy diet and  strong immune system is the key to getting maximum possible benefits of therapies undergone. Medical supervision is extremely necessary for proper execution of therapy.

Eye Cancer Statistics and Prognosis

Eye cancer statistics reflects on some of the vital and well-researched areas related to the disorder and also provides key inputs for further eye cancer research process. Eye cancer prognosis is a part of statistical process and is useful to predict approximate eye cancer life expectancy of the victim.

Eye Cancer Statistics and Prognosis – Main Aspects

Eye cancer statistics are vital to understand intensity and nature of the disorder and the impact it can cause to victim’s body. Statistics is of varied types and focuses on all important aspects of the disease. It takes both regional as well as universal constraints into consideration and also gives due importance to eye cancer prognosis rate. Prognosis of eye cancer is a process of predicting behavior of cancer cells originated in eye region and also gives an idea about the extent of consequences such cell abnormality can cause in present or in future.

Most cancer research organizations, educational institutes concerned with the cause, government health departments, and other institutes working for welfare of cancer patients come out with latest and well-studies statistics on regular basis. Most of them publish yearly statistics along with a few also publishing figures for a tenure as long as ten years. There is no uniformity in occurrence of the disorder and most of the cases are caused in Caucasian race and in people having green, gray or blue colored eyes.

Availability of infrastructure and resources to deal with the disorder and quality of eye cancer awareness in a region also plays a vital role in framing statistical figures and eye cancer prognosis rate. Prognosis of eye cancer is closely related with eye cancer survival rate and life expectancy. Various aspects determine prognosis figures and chances of survival can vary from person to person even though other external conditions and basic eye cancer causes may remain similar in the victims considered.

Age and gender play a significant role in prognosis of cancer of eyes. The disorder is common in adults above 50 years though any person is prone to the same. In children, eye cancer detected is mostly of retinoblastoma form and can create severe consequences if not treated in early stage. Uveal eye cancer is the most common cancerous disorder of eyes detected in adults. The disease is almost equally common in men and women.

Personal history of the victim concerned with occurrence and treatment of eye or other forms of cancer is considered during statistical calculations. Family medical history also plays a vital role as the disorder can develop due to genetic factors.

Main Eye Cancer Statistics and Prognosis Figures

According to American cancer Society’s 2012 estimates, 2,610 new eye cancer cases are expected to occur in USA (United States of America) this year and around 270 eye cancer deaths are predicted. Secondary eye cancer is much more common than the primary one and majority of secondary cancer start in skin or lymph nodes. Rate of occurrence of the disorder in men is 1.0 per 100,000 and in women is 0.7 per 100,000 persons. White people are more prone to the disorder as compared to black race.

Eye cancer prognosis rate is around 85% for the first stage while it falls to less than 68% for second stage. Intermediate stages may show average prognosis between 50-70%. Last stage eye cancer prognosis rate is less than 15% and can cause serious impact on other parts of the body as well.

Eye cancer statistics is based on scientific and well-researched outputs and is calculated under proper medical observation. Eye cancer prognosis can alter with status of immune system of the victim and better health leads to better chances of survival.

Esophageal Cancer Support

Esophageal cancer support is a process of exploring and executing various financial and non-financial ways to assist victim in coping with the disorder in a safe and systematic manner. Support for esophageal cancer also deals with other aspects like creating esophageal cancer awareness, making people familiar with latest trends and treatments for cancer of esophagus, and also assisting medical centers or esophageal cancer research institutes to carry out activities for esophageal cancer patients.

Esophageal Cancer Support in Detail

Cancer of esophagus is a serious disorder and a person should be made aware about various aspects like causes, symptoms, diagnosis etc well in advance. According to American Cancer Society (United States of America), average esophageal survival rate is around 37% for stage 1. If the disorder is detected in second or third stages, survival rate is not more than 17%. Person suffering from fourth or last stage of esophageal cancer has chances of survival of not more than 3%. Thus, support for esophageal cancer plays an important role in providing right guidance at right time for victims and avoiding them from being panicked or mentally depressed.

Esophageal cancer support is provided by a variety of organizations. Many esophageal cancer support organizations worldwide are committed to causes and sufferings of esophageal cancer victims and carry out a wide range of activities. Some of these organizations also work in coordination with cancer research institutes and help them in providing reliable and latest data to carry out research process with ease. Support groups are directly in contact with victims and keep a record of common prime causes, symptoms, and consequences of disorder. This helps in guiding victims about the disorder in a more convenient manner.

Support groups may also publish various documents, articles, papers or conduct seminars and workshops to communicate better with people. Such groups also make people aware about latest health policies, medical insurance schemes, initiatives by government health departments, and various aids or grants given by charity or other organizations.

Some esophageal cancer support groups also provide direct financial assistance or aid to victims suffering from the disorder and recommend them apt medical centers to go for. This helps the victim to be more focused and confident about the process of esophageal cancer treatment he is undergoing and thus, decreases his mental sufferings to a certain extent. Support groups are useful not only for the victims but also for their care-takers and well-wishers. Such groups train and educate people in living an apt lifestyle, make them aware of habits to be restricted, and also give them knowledge about proper kind of post-cure care. Following proper post-treatment care pattern is extremely important in order to avoid esophageal cancer recurrence.

Support pattern for esophageal cancer keeps changing according to needs of time and is closely related to advances in methods and technology in detecting and treating the disorder. Some support groups work on regional basis while some others work on universal basis. National Cancer Institute (United States of America) is a leading support groups for cancer. Macmillan Cancer Support (United Kingdom), American Cancer Society (USA), and Dailystrength (online support group) are some of the leading cancer support groups committed to assisting people suffer from esophageal or other forms of cancer.  

Esophageal cancer support should be in proper coordination with sufferings of victim and previous medical history should be analyzed before providing a kind of support. Kind of awareness and support such groups provide to victims depends largely upon the concerns and needs of people in that particular area and availability or resources therein to deal with the disorder.

What Causes Endometrial Cancer

Endometrial cancer is also known as cancer of endometrium or uterine cancer. Endometrial cancer causes focus mainly on the prime risk factors or elements that result into cancerous development in the endometrial areas. Endometrium is the area covering lining of uterus and is closely placed to productive organs of the body. The disease develops mainly in the uterine area and occurs only in females.

Endometrial Cancer Causes in Detail

Endometrial cancer needs to be tackled in initial stages to avoid unnecessary damage to uterus and other areas in future. The disease develops quite slowly in initial stages and affects only the surface tissues of endometrium. Majority of fatalities from the disorder occur due to lack of endometrial cancer detection in initial phases. Pattern of lifestyle and dietary habits also influence development of cancerous tumors in endometrium to a great extent and help malignant cells to progress from one stage to another with much ease.

Person suffering or suffered from endometrial or other cancers like that of breast, bladder, colon, abdomen, vagina, ovary, and lungs are highly vulnerable to endometrial cancer. Such people are usually low on immune system as various healthy cells and tissues suffer from severe damage or death during cancer treatment in past. Those who have undergone faulty pattern of endometrial cancer treatment or have not taken proper post-treatment precautions are also at high risk of being infected by cancerous tumors in uterus.

Uterine cancer can also be caused due to genetic factors. Family history of endometrial cancer is another important endometrial cancer cause. Those having such history should undergo regular medical tests to trace cell abnormality in endometrial areas. The disease is more common in women above 50 years. Thus, regular medical tests right from the age of 40-45 years can help in early detection of abnormal growth and prevent the polyps from turning malignant.

Women who undergo irregular menstrual cycles frequently and those who have started with their periods in very early age (under 12 years) have high chances of suffering from endometrial cancer. Late menopause is also another major endometrial cancer cause and is a serious concern in females above 50 years of age.

Women who have never been pregnant or are infertile may get infected by endometrial cancer much easier than those who have been pregnant at least once in their lifetime. Breast cancer is one of the highest occurring cancers in females and needs to be treated at the earliest. Thus, many females consume a medical drug called tamoxifen to treat the disorder. It may lead to severe side-effects if taken without proper medical supervision and is also an important cause of endometrial cancer.

Some women may suffer from unusually high levels of estrogen. Such levels need to be balanced well by correct use of progesterone under thorough medical advice. People who fail to maintain proper estrogen levels are highly vulnerable to cancer of endometrium.

Endometrial hyperplasia is another risk factor wherein the cells present in the endometrium are in excess to the necessary numbers and may instigate cell abnormality in the region. Diabetes, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), obesity, and improper hygiene in the uterine areas are some of the other indirect risk factors leading to endometrial or uterine cancer. Ulcers and infections in the endometrial region that generally does not heal by normal medicines should be tested for presence of abnormal cell-growth.  

Endometrial cancer causes are varied and may cause different form of impact on different victims. Their intensity mainly depends upon the status of immune system of the victim.

Prevention of Colon Cancer

Colon cancer prevention is a set of methods executed to prevent or curb generation of abnormal cell-growth in colon and keep the immune system of a person or victim intact. It also helps prevent colon cancer recurrence and is very helpful for people having personal background of the disease or family history of colon or other forms of cancer. Women suffering from breast cancer are highly prone to cancerous disorder of colon and need to be very careful about their health issues, especially those arising in the digestive system. 

Colon Cancer Prevention Tips  
Colon cancer occurs in both males and females in large numbers and is one of the leading cancerous disorders worldwide. It is the third-most common cancer in men and second-most common in women. Numbers of cases detected in men are slightly higher than in women and the disease is more common in those residing in developed regions. 

Colon Cancer Prevention
High intake of fat is one of the leading colon cancer causes and should be strictly controlled to execute proper colon cancer prevention methods. High intake of red meat, consuming too much alcohol, smoking, intake of various other carcinogenic substances, and smoking are some of the faulty habits that may lead to early growth of polyps in colon. Such habits also weaken overall immune system of the person and make him more vulnerable to early and rapid metastasis of tumors. 

History of other forms of cancers originating in rectum, liver, abdomen, anus, head and neck areas, and bowel cancer put a person at a very high risk. People who are used to inactive lifestyle or are suffering from other infectious disorders like HPV (Human Papillomavirus) and AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) should undergo thorough medical tests on regular basis for early and reliable colon cancer detection. 
Eating unhygienic food or food content low in nutrients and vitamins content should be avoided. One should focus on daily and sufficient consumption of leafy and other vegetables, fresh fruits, and salads. Leafy vegetables play a vital role in maintaining proper bowel movements and also help in smooth functioning of the overall digestive system. Some people may suffer from various kinds of non-cancerous disorders like inflammatory bowel disease and ulcerative colitis. Such disorders weaken cells and tissues present in colon or other areas to function inefficiently and instigate instant cancerous growth. Also, people who have been diagnosed for benign tumors in the past need to keep a regular check on cell behavior and cell-development process in their body. 
Colon cancer is metastatic in nature and may spread to various other areas of the body quite early. Also, the disorder is either primary or secondary in nature. Secondary form of cancer of colon is a kind of malignant growth that develops in other adjacent or remote organs like lymph nodes, liver, abdomen, rectum, bowel, anus etc and reaches the colon after certain time period. Prevention methods to be used in secondary form of colon cancer need to be more aggressive and effective as compared to primary growth of tumors as secondary colon cancer has less colon cancer survival rate in comparison to the primary one. 
Colon cancer prevention focuses on early identification of colon cancer symptoms and their apt interpretation in accordance with physical and mental capabilities of the victim. Formation of lumps in colon or other areas, unnatural or improper bowel movements, swelling or redness in colon, problems in digestion of food, and abdominal pains are some of the basic early signs of the disorder. Colon cancer can be well prevented by adopting active lifestyle with inclusion of regular exercise.
