Cancer is a general name that
includes hundreds of diseases, from "benign" local harmless tumors to
"malignant" aggressive, sometimes fatal diseases. This page addresses
general Cancer issues. While direct causes are unknown, the chances of
cancer increase with:
1. family history of cancer, overexposure to radiation (sun, x-rays, electricity, etc.).
2. overexposure to toxic agents (smoke, alcohol, chemicals, asbestos, pesticides, fertilizers, etc.).
3. weakened immune system (due to AIDS, Stress, poor diet, other illness, mental/emotional distress).
Treatments vary with the type and severity of the cancer and include: Minor surgery, radiation therapy, local chemo-therapy, bio-therapy (special biological agents which kill or consume cancer cells), major surgery, bone marrow transplants, etc. For more information on specific types of cancer and normal treatment options, see Cancer Facts And Treatment.
If you've been diagnosed with a malignant Cancer, always retest and get a second opinion from another doctor. Once confirmed, work with your doctor to make sure nothing you do interferes with the medical treatment. Get the specific diagnosis in writing, including the name and stage of the Cancer. Search the National Cancer Institute and other websites to learn all that's being done for your cancer. Print relevant pages and make a list of specific questions for your doctor. Write down his answers and check them on the web. I know the doctor has a good education, but this is your health and your life. The actions to help prevent Cancer below can often be used in stronger doses to fight cancer, but check with your doctor.
