Cancer

Cancer is a class of diseases characterized by out-of-control and abnormal cell growth spreading to other locations in the body via lymph or blood resulting in the destruction of adjacent tissues. There are over 100 different types of cancer specific to the type of cells that are affected.

Why would someone rapidly lose weight?

User Avatar
Our body weight is determined by the amount of energy that we take in as food and the amount of energy we spend in the activities throughout the day. But with the lifestyle we have been indulged into leads us to various weight related like issues like obesity, overweight, etc. Whether you are trying to lose 5 kg or more than that, the same principles determine how much weight you lose and how fast your weight loss will occur. Teas are also a great option for weight management like Shoonya FAT ZERO Pure Garcinia Cambogia & Green Tea, as it contain antioxidants that helps to lose weight.

Can you get breast cancer after mastectomy?

User Avatar
Yes. As with any type or form of cancer, the cancerous cells can re-appear in that area or in another area at any time. A friend of mine had breast cancer at a young age, had a double-mastectomy and was cancer-free for about a year and a half. Then, the cancer came back. There are lymph nodes under your arms and your breast tissue goes into your chest wall. Even with a mastectomy, if they get the whole tumor out and treat with chemo or radiation, then find no signs of cancer for a year or 2 or more, unfortunately, the cancer can come back at any time. So rock those pink ribbons and donate to Susan G. Komen!!

Painful hard lump behind ear which hurts when you touch it should you be worried?

User Avatar
It probably is a swollen lymph node, which could be from a range of things. If you have a thyroid problem it could be from that, it could just be an infection and it could just be allergies as well. Here are some of the things that the swollen lymph node could be from: common cold infection hyperactive thyroid / thyroid disease lymphoma [ tumor in the lymph node] gingivitis viruses mononucleosis tonsillitis Hodgkin's disease Leukemia Tuberculosis Sarcoidosis Toxoplasmosis Secondary syphilis Yaws Cat scratch fever/allergies Lymphatic obstruction [ Those are just some of the reasons they could be] I would call the doctor immediately if you , cannot move your neck , if the overlaying skin is red, rapid increase of size with in a couple of hours, fever over 105, diffculting breathing and swallowing. If this is happening and you can't get a hold of your doctor, go to an emergency room! If your lymph node is extremely tender to the touch , have a problem moving neck/head/arm/leg, increase to an 1 in or more , fever lasting more than 2-3 days, i would call with in 24-to 48 hours... if you cant move ur neck arm legs ect, call with in 24! Honetsly, I wouldn't jump the gun and say this is cancer. Lymph Nodes stay swollen for a 2-4 weeks than eventually go down. I would still call your main physician and tell him/her your sympthoms and let them judge for you whether or not you should go in and see them. If you want some of the pain to go down, get a hot wash cloth and put it over the bump... but please do not take aspirin when having this. I also read that the more you touch it the longer it takes for it to return to a normal size... not sure if this is true but just in case... Hope this is Helpful...

Does THC prevent cancer?

User Avatar
The jury is still out on this question mostly. However, smoking marijuana can cause cancer. There is THC in 'weed' but there are also many other compounds. The fertilizers used in marijuana propagation, especially illicit, can cause cancer on their own with or without smoking it. The burning of the plant material and inhaling the smoke can cause cancer. Many avid, famous pot smokers have died of cancer, so even though THC may fight cancer, if you pound enough carcinogens into your body, NOTHING is going to save you from getting cancer. Where you may have been thrown off is, THC has been shown to be effective in fighting cancer. The THC used in these studies was NOT in the form of smoked marijuana. It was in pill or liquid form. Moderation of all things in life will keep your body in a happy balance. Your body can fight cancer if you don't keep fighting your body,

What is true about smoking scientist knew in 1940 that it causes cancerlung cancer rates rise and fall or lung caner was common in 1920?

User Avatar
In the 1920s and 1940s scientists did not know nor did they have any idea what caused cancer. In the 1930s the sulfa drugs gave doctors the ability to fight infections. Penicillin became available after world war 2. Also after world war 2, people replaced coal with natural gas for home heating. At that point it became possible to test the effect of cigarette smoking because coal smoke no longer filled the air. It was possible to take the members of a Seventh Day Adventist Church, where none of the members smoked, and compare them to the members of a Baptist Church where many members smoked. The members came from the same socioeconomic level. Without the houses filled with coal smoke, the smoke in the lungs probably came from cigarette smoke. Since neither the Adventists nor the Baptists were supposed to drink alcohol, that could be ruled out. So, basically it was almost 1950 before serious research on smoking became possible. It was the early 1960s with the report was released linking smoking and cancer.

A wound will not cause cancer or a STD. A wound can make it easier to catch an STD if you have sex with someone who's infected. A vaginal wound that doesn't heal promptly may also be a symptom of cancer.

How do you cure cancer?

User Avatar
There are cures for some kinds of cancer. (Some of them are listed below). Unfortunately, most kinds of cancer have no known cure. Cancer is a category of diseases in which a group of cells display uncontrolled growth (division beyond the normal limits). There is no known way to normalize cancer cells. The only known ways of curing a person of cancer involve removing or killing all the cancer cells. Although Dr Otto Warburg found the main cause of cancer in the 1930s, no subsequent cure has been identified. Warburg found a lack of oxygen in a person's cells and bloodstream contributed to cancer risk. Various doctors and natural therapists have proposed diets to help stave off cancer. These diets have included greater amounts of phosphatides and lipoproteins, such as those that are found in diets which incorporate cottage cheese, nuts, seeds such as apricot seeds, onion and vegetables such as leek, chive, onion and garlic and flax seed oil regularly. Again, however, diet is not a cure. [NOTE that apricot seeds are toxic to humans and most higher life forms.] There are many alternative therapies that claim to have discovered the cure, but while they may appease the symptoms - sometimes dramatically - and cause reduction of tumours and/or the number of cancer cells, they are not a cure. In many cases, Chemotherapy and radiation therapy are not considered cures, but palliative treatment to improve the length and quality of life. In those cases, the dose is too low to kill all the cancer cells. * Chemotherapy kills cancer cells throughout the body. If the cancer cells are susceptible enough to the toxin that all the cancer cells are killed, then chemotherapy can cure people. Unfortunately, in most cases doses high enough to kill all the cancer cells would also kill the patient. * Radiation therapy kills cancer cells. If all the cancer cells can be located, then radiation therapy can cure people. Unfortunately, in most cases by the time the cancer has been detected, it has already spread and not all the locations it has spread to can be located. Also, there is a risk that radiation damage to normal cells sometimes causes new cancer. * Surgery to remove the cancer cells, which often means removing part or all of the organ in which the cancer cells are found. If all the cancer cells can be located, then surgery can cure people. The danger is that, even though this may have been done, cancer cells may have already spread to other parts of the body. Also, there is the risk common to all surgery of infection and other complications. Preventatives for a few kinds of cancer include HPV vaccines, which prevent some kinds of cervical cancer. Researchers are currently testing gene therapy to see if it can kill some kinds of cancer. Having said that, there are some individuals who, after a course of treatment, whether surgery or other therapies, may end up completely cancer-free. Miracles can happen. Two things which do appear to have a noticeable impact are a person's personal faith, and a positive outlook.

I think that's just a standard warning that companies use when their products are sold in California to protect themselves against potential lawsuits (see Wikipedia's article on Proposition 65 (link below) . I don't think this means that there is any danger in using your T1 as a Bluetooth Headset, as long as you don't eat it you should be fine.

How does metastasis work?

User Avatar
Metastasis is when abnormally function cells spread to different area's of the body. First you need entry into the bloodstream of the lymphatic vessels. First phase is for the tumor causing cells to break free and cause local invasion. The next phase is where they push out into the bloodstream and metastasis in a small vessicle where they push out into a remote site. They then survive in the foreign tissue which is quite difficult and persistence of growth will cause secondary tumor.

Can Methadone be used for pancreatic cancer pain?

Methadone is simply a narcotic anlegesic, or in other words it is a pain killer that is similar to morphine, oxycodone, codeine ect... It is a very effective pain killer because it has a very long half-life, meaning it stays active in the body for a long time. Morphine may ease pain for 4 to 6 hours where Methadone may be effective for 12 to 16 hours. It comes with it's attendant complications however, including narcosis, constipation, sleepiness and the danger of overdose and addiction. If you are experiencing pain don't be reluctant to tell your doctor. In this day and age there is no reason for you to be in pain. I
