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.

Cancer Causes and Prevention

Cancer become any age group person may 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 4,000 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 a high-fat diet 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 simple food choices. Try to have a varied, well-balanced diet that includes generous amounts of foods that are high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. At the same time, try to cut down on fatty foods. You should eat five servings of fruits and vegetables each day, choose more whole-grain breads and cereals, and cut down on eggs, high-fat meat, high-fat dairy products (such as whole milk, butter, and most cheeses), salad dressings, margarine, and cooking oils.

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 sunscreens to help protect yourself. Sunscreens are rated in strength according to their SPF (sun protection factor), which ranges from 2 to 30 and higher. Those rated 15 to 30 block most of the sun's harmful rays.

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 very little radiation and the benefits nearly always outweigh the risks. However, repeated exposure can be harmful, so it is a good idea to talk with your doctor or dentist about the need for each x-ray and ask about the use of shields to protect other parts of your body. Before 1950, X-rays were used to treat non-cancerous conditions (such as an enlarged thymus, enlarged tonsils and adenoids, ringworm of the scalp, and acne) in children and young adults. People who have received radiation to the head and neck have a higher-than-average risk of developing thyroid cancer years later. People with a history of such treatments should report it to their doctor and should have a careful exam of the neck every 1 or 2 years.

Also, radiation used in the treatment of some types of cancer can increase the risk of developing a second cancer. Patients having radiation therapy may want to discuss this issue with their doctor.

Chemicals and other substances in the workplace being exposed to substances such as metals, 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.

Hormone replacement therapy: Many women use estrogen therapy to control the hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and osteoporosis (thinning of the bones) that may occur during menopause. However, studies show that estrogen use increases the risk of cancer of the uterus. Other studies suggest an increased risk of breast cancer among women who have used high doses of estrogen or have used estrogen for a long time. At the same time, taking estrogen may reduce the risk of heart disease and osteoporosis.

The risk of uterine cancer appears to be less when progesterone is used with estrogen than when estrogen is used alone. But some scientists are concerned that the addition of progesterone may also increase the risk of breast cancer.

part in decisions about their medical care. Often, it helps to make a list of questions to ask the doctor. Patients may take notes or, with the doctor's consent, tape record the discussion. Some patients also find it helps to have a family member or friend with them when they talk with the doctor to take part in the discussion, to take notes, or just to listen.

  • Here are some questions may want to ask the doctor: 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?
  • What is my diagnosis?
  • What is the stage of the disease?
  • What are my treatment choices? Which do you recommend for Me? Why?
  • Will I have to change my normal activities?
  • What is the treatment likely to cost?
Any patient diagnosis cancer, mental shock and stress are natural reactions. These feelings may make it difficult to think of every question to ask the doctor. Patients may find it hard to remember everything the doctor says. 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 doctor 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 treatment so that only cancer cells are removed or destroyed. Because treatment also damages healthy cells and tissues, it often causes unpleasant side effects.

The side effects of cancer treatment vary. They depend mainly on the type and extent of the treatment. Also, each person reacts differently. Doctors try to plan the patient's therapy to keep side effects to a minimum and they can help with any problems that occur.

Radiation Therapy
With radiation therapy, the side effects depend on the treatment dose and the part of the body that is treated. The most common side effects are tiredness, skin reactions (such as a rash or redness) in the treated areas, and loss of appetite. Radiation therapy also may cause a decrease in the number of white blood cells, cells that help protect the body against infection. Although the side effects of radiation therapy can be unpleasant, the doctor can usually treat or control them. It also helps to know that, in most cases, they are not permanent.

Chemotherapy
The side effects of chemotherapy depends mainly on the drugs and doses the patient receives. Generally, anticancer drugs affect cells that divide rapidly. These include blood cells, which fight infection, help the blood to clot, or carry oxygen to all parts of the body. When blood cells are affected by anticancer drugs, patients are more likely to get infections, may bruise or bleed easily, and may have less energy. Cells that line the digestive tract also divide rapidly. As a result of chemotherapy, patients may have side effects, such as loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, hair loss, or mouth sores. For some patients, the doctor may prescribe medicine to help with side effects, especially with nausea and vomiting. Usually, these side effects gradually go away during the recovery period or after treatment stops. Hair loss another side effect of chemotherapy, is a major concern for many patients. Some chemotherapy drugs only cause the hair to thin out, while others may result in the loss of all body hair. Patients may feel better if they decide how to handle hair loss before starting treatment.

In some men and women, chemotherapy drugs cause changes that may result in a loss of fertility (the ability to have children). Loss of fertility may be temporary or permanent depending on the drugs used and the patient's age. For men, sperm banking before treatment may be a choice. Women's menstrual periods may stop, and they may have hot flashes and vaginal dryness. Periods are more likely to return in young women. In some cases, bone marrow transplantation and peripheral stem cell support are used to replace tissue that forms blood cells when that tissue has been destroyed by the effects of chemotherapy or radiation therapy.

Hormone Therapy
Hormone therapy can cause a number of side effects. Patients may have nausea and vomiting, swelling or weight gain, and, in some cases, hot flashes. In women, hormone therapy also may cause interrupted menstrual periods, vaginal dryness, and, sometimes, loss of fertility. Hormone therapy in men may cause impotence, loss of sexual desire, or loss of fertility. These changes may be temporary, long lasting, or permanent.

Biological Therapy
The side effects of biological therapy depend on the type of treatment. Often, these treatments cause flu-like symptoms such as chills, fever, muscle aches, weakness, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Some patients get a rash, and some bleed or bruise easily. In addition, interleukin therapy can cause swelling. Depending on how severe these problems are, patients may need to stay in the hospital during treatment. These side effects are usually short-term; they gradually go away after treatment stops.

Doctors and nurses can explain the side effects of cancer treatment and help with any problems that occur. The National Cancer Institute booklets Radiation Therapy and You and Chemotherapy and You also have helpful information about cancer treatment and coping with side effects.

Homoeo-Immunobuster Cure Help in Cancer Treatment

What is Immunotherapy ?
Dr. Harshad Raval MD [Hom] says that Immunotherapy is treatment that stimulates one's own immune system to fight cancer. The immune system is your own natural defense system against disease. Biologic response modifiers and biologic therapy are other terms used to describe immunotherapy.
Read More
Dr. Harshad RAval MD [Hom] ays regarding immunotherapy as the "fourth modality" or forth way of treating cancer. The other three are surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. Immunotherapy is sometimes used by itself, but is most often used as an adjuvant therapy (along with or after another therapy) to add to the anticancer effects of the main therapy.

HOW THE IMMUNE SYSTEM WORKS
Homeopathy medicine develop parallel develop vital force against cancer cells and strong support to disease tissue. And Its work immunbuster to all cell of over body. And strong vital forge become inactive cancer cell and fight against cancerous cells strongly. The body's immune system is a collection of organs, specialized cells, and substances that helps protects the body from disease. The specialized cells and substances circulate throughout the body to protect the body from microorganisms (germs) that cause infections and from cancer.

To understand how the immune system works, think of the body as a country, and the immune system as the country's defense forces. Think of viruses, bacteria, and cancer cell as hostile, foreign army, because they are not an original part of the body, and they want to use the body's resources to serve their own purposes, and harm to the body in the process.

Microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria, and parasites contain some substances also present in the human body's own tissues. These germs contain foreign substances that are not normally present in the body. these substances cause the immune system to react to the germs, "recognizing" them as foreign. Anything that causes the immune system to react is called an antigen , from the Greek words anti , meaning against , and gen , meaning to produce. Antigens produce a reaction that can lead the immune system to destroy both the antigen and anything the antigen is attached to or part of, such as a bacterial cell or cancer cell.

Cancer cells have unusual substances on their outer surfaces that can act as antigens, marking the cells as different or abnormal. That difference acts as a red flag to the immune system cells that recognize and attack foreign substances found in the body. But, in general, the immune system is much better at recognizing germs than cancer cells. Germs are truly "foreign" to the body, and their cells differ from normal human cells. In contrast, the differences between normal cells and cancer cells are subtler. Continuing the military analogy, they are less like soldiers of an invading army and more like traitors within the rank of the human cell population.

The immune system 's response to antigens is a precisely coordinated process that uses the many types of cells that make up the immune system. Most cells of the immune system are referred to as lymphocytes. Several types of lymphocytes work together to attack cancer cells. These include B cells, T cells, and natural killer (NK) cells. Antigen- presenting cells, such as macrophages and dendritic cells are not lymphocytes, but work closely with lymphocytes to fight cancer.

B cell and plasma cells:
In Blood B cells are formed and develop in the bone marrow, which is the soft ,spongy inner part of some bones. B cells accumulate in lymph nodes and some internal organs such as the spleen. Lymph nodes are bean sized collections of immune system cells that are found through out the body and are interconnected by small vein-like channels called Lymphatic vessels. B cells cannot directly destroy germs or cancer cells by themselves ,but they play an important role in immune defenses by producing antibodies. When a B cell is getting ready to produce lots of antibody, it turns into another cell type called a plasma cell. Antibodies are large proteins that circulate throughout the body in the blood and lymphatic vessels. one way the immune system reacts to the foreign antigen (substance that does not belong in the body ) is by producing antibodies. The antibodies produced by this immune response will recognize and bind (attach) to the antigen, but not to other substances that are part of normal human cells and tissues. The binding of the antibody to an antigen does not directly destroy the cancer cell. But, antibody binding may mark the site of an undesirable cell or germ and set off a chain of events that can lead to its destruction. This destruction may involve other immune system cells such as macrophages that are attracted by the bound antibody. Or, an antibody stuck to the antigen may attract certain blood proteins known as complement proteins that set off a chain of reactions that destroys the cancer cell by punching holes in its outer membrane.

T cells:
lymphocytes that are formed in the bone marrow enter the bloodstream before they are fully mature. From the bloodstream, they will enter the thymus (a small gland in the chest in front of the heart and behind the breast bone) where they mature and gain new disease-fighting properties. Once they leave the thymus gland, they are known as T-cells (named from the T in thymus). T cells accumulate in the lymph nodes and spleen , where they work together with other immune system cells. Special molecules similar to antibodies are present on the surface of T cells, which allow them to recognize and react to parasites, cancer cells, and cells infected by viruses.

There are two main kind of T cells and they perform different tasks. One is the cytotoxic T lymphocyte. Cytotoxic means poisonous to a cell. These are also known as killer T cells. When a killer T cell comes in contact with the cancer cell it recognizes, it gives off substances that destroy the cancer cells. The other type of T cell is the helper T cell. These cells do not directly kill cancer cell or germs, but help B cells and cytotoxic T cells to work more effectively.

Antigen-presenting cells (APCs):
APCs are several types of. such as monocytes, macrophages, and dendritic cells. These cells are important because they help lymphocytes recognize antigens on cancer cells.

Natural killer (NK) cells:
Lymphocytes called natural killer (NK) cells attach themselves to cancer cells through molecules on their outer surfaces sticking to the antigen on the cancer cells. Once they are in contact with the cancer cells, the NK cells may then separate from the cancer cell and go on to attack and kill other cancer cells.

Macrophages:
Macrophages ( from the Greek makros , meaning large, and phagein , meaning to eat) are attracted by the binding of antibody to antigen. Macrophages start out as monocytes that are produced by the bone marrow and released into the bloodstream. Some monocytes leave the bloodstream and enter tissues and organs to become macrophages capable of surrounding and "eating" cells. Both monocytes and macrophages can act as APCs to help start an immune response.

Dendritic Cells:
Dendritic cells are a type of antigen-presenting cell found in lymph nodes, the skin, and some internal organs.

HOW IMMUNE THERAPY HELPS
Dr Harshad Raval MD [hom] claims sometimes, a patient's immune system will not recognize cancer cells as foreign because the cancer cells' antigens are not different enough from those of normal cells to cause an immune reaction. Or, the immune system may recognize cancer cells, but provides a response that is not strong enough to destroy the cancer. Various kinds of immunotherapies have been designed to help the immune system recognize cancer cells as a target for attack, and to strengthen the attack so that it will destroy the cancer.

TYPES OF IMMUNOTHERAPY
Dr. Harshad Raval strongly says that immunotherapies can be divided into several broad categories:

Nonspecific immunotherapy’s and adjuvant
  • Active specific immunotherapy’s (cancer vaccines)
  • Passive immunotherapy’s (monoclonal antibodies)

Sometimes, doctors will use two or more of these immunotherapy options together. Some tumors are more effectively attacked by one kind of immune system cell than another, so doctors and researchers use that knowledge when designing and applying immunotherapies.

CANCER VACCINES (ACTIVE SPECIFIC IMMUNOTHERAPIES)
People are most familiar with vaccines that use weakened or killed viruses, bacteria, or other germs, and are given to healthy people to prevent an infectious disease. Doctors knew by the early 1800's that smallpox, a serious disease of humans, could be prevented by intentionally exposing a person to a virus that caused a similar disease of cows, known as cowpox. Because the Latin word for cow is vacca , the cowpox virus was named vaccinia , and the process of intentionally exposing people to a disease to prevent more serious one became known as vaccination.

A cancer vaccine contains cancer cells, parts of cells, or chemically pure antigens and causes increased immune response against cancer cells present in the patient's body. Cancer vaccines are considered active immunotherapies, because substances are injected into the patient that are meant to trigger an active response by the patient's own immune system. Cancer vaccines cause the immune system to produce antibodies to one or several antigens, and/or to produce cytotoxic T lymphocytes to attack cancer cells that have those antigens. Vaccines may also be combined with nonspecific immunotherapy using additional substances or cells called adjuvants, to boost the immune response.

TUMOR CELL VACCINES
These vaccines use cancer cells obtained either from the patient being treated or from another patient. The tumor cells are killed, usually by radiation, before they are injected into the patient so that they cannot form more tumors. But, antigens on the tumor cell surfaces are still there, and they stimulate a specific immune system response. As a result, the patient's cancer cells carrying these antigens are recognized and attacked. Doctors may also mix the dead tumor cells with other substances known to increase the immune response. These substances are referred to as non-specific adjuvants, meaning that the general boost they give to the immune system is meant to improve the effectiveness of the vaccine.

Dr. Harshad Raval MD{Hom] recommended one reason for using whole tumor cells in vaccines, instead of individual antigens, is that not all cancer antigens have been identified yet. Using the whole tumor cell may expose the patient's immune system to a large number of antigens, including some that could not be produced and injected separately because they have not yet been discovered.

When the patient's own tumor cells are used to create a vaccine, these cells typically do not cause a strong immune response to begin with and may even give off substances that suppress the immune system. Researchers have sought to overcome those problems by altering the patient's tumor cells before reinjecting them. This may involve treatments with certain chemicals that alter substances on the cell surface, or the addition of specific DNA sequences that instruct the tumor cells to produce new substances that attract immune system cells. Cytokines (natural immune system hormones) that stimulate activity of immune system cells may be able to counteract the actions of the substances tumors give off to suppress the immune system. Researchers may treat patients with some cytokines as part of the vaccine process, and are looking at ways to get the body to produce more of those cytokines.

Because of the difficulty in making a new autologous vaccine for every patient, researchers looked at ways to create tumor cell vaccines that could be effective in any patient with a particular kind of cancer. One way of doing that is to use cells grown in the lab from a cancer originally removed from another patient. Those allogenic cells are killed and given to the patient, usually along with one or more adjuvant substances known to stimulate the growth or activity of immune system cells.

Tumor cell vaccines are being studied for use against several cancers, including melanoma, ovarian cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer, colorectal cancer, lung cancer, liver cancer, non Hodgkin's lymphoma, stomach cancer, nasopharyngeal carcinoma and astrocytoma etc.

Dr Harshad RavalMD{Hom] medicine is working successfully in this aspect

ANTIGEN VACCINE FOR HEREDITY CANCER
Antigen vaccines stimulate the immune system by using individual antigens rather than using whole tumor cells that contain many thousands of antigens. Scientists have recently discovered the genetic codes of many antigens. By using gene-splicing techniques, they can mass-produce these antigens in the lab. Or, some antigens can now be made entirely from synthetic chemicals. When these antigens are produced in the lab, scientists can change them in ways that make them more easily recognized by the immune system's cells.

Dr. Harshad Raval MD{Hom] says, like Cancer his new technology means that large amounts of these very specific antigens can now be given to many patients. We know that some antigens cause an immune response in patients with certain cancers. Others produce immune reactions to more than one kind of cancer. Often scientists combine several antigens in each vaccine to cause a response to more than one of the antigens that may be present on cancer cells.

Antigen vaccines are being studied in patients with breast cancer, colorectal cancer, ovarian cancer, melanoma, pancreatic cancer, and other cancers.

DNA VACCINES
When antigens are injected into the body as a vaccine, they may produce the desired immune response at first, but often are less effective over time because antibodies rapidly attach to them and immune system cells destroy them. So, scientists have looked for a way to provide a steady supply of antigens to stimulate an ongoing immune response.

Deoxyribonucleic acid, or DNA, is the material in the nucleus (center) of cells that contains the genetic code for proteins that cells produce. Instead of injecting antigens into the patient, scientists can now inject bits of DNA that instruct the patient's cells to continuously produce certain antigens. These therapies are called DNA vaccines. Scientists may also remove cells from the patient, which are returned to the patient after being treated with DNA containing instructions on making a particular antigen. The altered cell then produces the antigen on an ongoing basis to keep the immune response strong.

Researchers have learned to use the tools of recombinant DNA technology ("gene splicing") to do the same thing with substances other than tumor antigens (cytokines, for example). Not all immunotherapies using DNA are vaccines, technically speaking, but their goals are all the same -- a steady supply of whatever substance is being used to stimulate the immune system. And, not all treatments using DNA are immunotherapies. Other types of gene therapy replace the damaged genes responsible for the cancer cell's abnormal growth, or add new genes that make the cancer cells more sensitive to anticancer drugs.

IMMUNOTOXINS
Dr. Harshad Raval MD{Hom] says immunotoxins are made by attaching toxins (poisonous substances from plants or bacteria) to monoclonal antibodies. Various immunotoxins have been made by attaching bacterial toxins such as diphtheria toxin (DT) or Pseudomonas exotoxin (PT), or plant toxins such as ricin A or saporin to monoclonal antibodies.

Clinical trials of immunotoxins are in progress for people with leukemia, lymphoma, brain tumors, and other cancers.

Dr. Harshad RAval says that patient must conduct studies of new treatments to answer the following questions: What is the purpose of the study?
  • What kinds of tests and treatments does the study involve?
  • What does this treatment do?
  • What is likely to happen to me with, or without, this new research treatment?
  • What are my other choices and their advantages and disadvantages?
  • How could the study affect my daily life?
  • What side effects can I expect from the study? Can the side effects be controlled?
  • Is the treatment likely to be helpful?
  • Does this new type of treatment work?
  • Does it work better than other treatments already available?
  • What side effects does the treatment cause?
  • Do the benefits outweigh the risks, including side effects?
  • What type of long-term follow-up care is part of the study?
  • Has the treatment been used to treat other types of cancers?
  • In which patients is the treatment most likely to be helpful?
  • Will I have to be hospitalized? If so, how often and for how long?
  • Will the study cost me anything? Will any of the treatment be free?
  • If I were harmed as a result of the research, what treatment would I be entitled to?

most important modifiable determinants of cancer risk. The evidence also indicates that although genetics are a factor in the development of cancer, heredity does not explain all cancer occurrences. Behavioral factors such as tobacco use, dietary choices, and physical activity modify the risk of cancer at all stages of its development. The introduction of healthful diet and exercise practices at any time from childhood to old age can promote health and is likely to reduce cancer risk.

May diatatery supplyment to patient life.Many dietary factors can affect cancer risk: types of foods, food preparation methods, portion sizes, food variety, and overall caloric balance. Cancer risk can be reduced by an overall dietary pattem that includes a high proportion of plant foods (fruits, vegetables, grains, and beans), limited amounts of meat, dairy, and other high-fat foods, and a balance of caloric intake and physical activity.

Based on its review of the scientific evidence, the American Cancer Society revised its nutrition guidelines in 1996 (the guidelines were last updated in 1991). The Society's recommendations are consistent in principle with the 1992 US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food Guide Pyramid, the 1995 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, and dietary recommendations of other agencies for general health promotion and for the prevention of coronary heart disease, diabetes, and other diet-related chronic conditions. Although no diet can guarantee full protection against any disease, the Society believes that the following recommendations offer the best nutrition information currently available to help Americans reduce their risk of cancer.

Choose most of the foods you eat from plant sources.
Eat five or more servings of fruits and vegetables each day; eat other foods from plant sources, such as breads, cereals, grain products, rice, pasta, or beans several times each day. Many scientific studies show that eating fruits and vegetables (especially green and dark yellow vegetables and those in the cabbage family, soy products, and legumes) protect for cancers at many sites, particularly for cancers of the gastrointestinal and respiratory tracts. Grains are an important source of many vitamins and minerals such as folate, calcium, and selenium, all of which have been associated with a lower risk of colon cancer. Beans (legumes) are especially rich in nutrients that may protect against cancer.

Limit your intake of high-fat foods, particularly from animal sources.
Choose foods low in fat; limit consumption of meats, especially high-fat meats. High-fat diets have been associated with an increase in the risk of cancers of the colon and rectum, prostate, and endometrium. The association between high-fat diets and the risk of breast cancer is much weaker. Whether these associations are due to the total amount of fat, the particular type of fat (saturated, monounsaturated, or polysaturated), the calories contributed by fat, or some other factor in food fats, has not yet been determined. Consumption of meat, especially red meat, has been associated with increased cancer risk at several sites, most notably colon and prostate.

physically active: achieve and maintain a healthy weight.
Physical activity can help protect against some cancers, either by balancing caloric intake with energy expenditure or by other mechanisms. An imbalance of caloric intake and energy output can lead to overweight, obesity, and increased risk for cancers at several sites: colon and rectum, prostate, endometrium, breast (among postmenopausal women), and kidney. Both physical activity and controlled caloric intake are necessary to achieve or to maintain a healthy body weight.

Limit consumption of alcoholic beverages, Tobaco, smoking :
Alcoholic beverages, along with cigarette smoking and use of snuff and chewing tobacco, cause cancers of the oral cavity, esophagus, and larynx. The combined use of tobacco and alcohol leads to a greatly increased risk of oral and esophageal cancers; the effect of tobacco and alcohol combined is greater than the sum of their individual effects. Studies also have noted an association between alcohol consumption and an increased risk of breast cancer. The mechanism of this effect is not yet known, but the association may be due to carcinogenic actions of alcohol or its metabolites, to alcohol-induced changes in levels of hormones such as estrogens, or to some other process.

Pollutions Enviroment and Produced Cancer Risk

Pollutions and Environmental causes probably account for well over half of all cancer cases. Most environmental risks are determined by lifestyle choices (smoking, diet, etc.), while the rest arise in community and workplace settings. The degree of cancer hazard posed by these voluntary and involuntary risks depends on the concentration or intensity of the carcinogen and the exposure dose a person received. In situations where high levels of
Read More
carcinogens are present and where exposures are extensive, significant hazards may exist, but where concentrations are low and exposures limited, hazards are often negligible. However, when low-dose exposures are widespread, they can represent significant public health hazards (for example, secondhand tobacco smoke). Strong regulatory control and constant attention to safe occupational practices are required to minimize the workplace potential for exposure to highdose carcinogens.

Risk Management :
Risks are assessed to protect people against unsafe exposures and to set appropriate environmental standards. The risk assessment process has two steps. The first identifies the chemical or physical nature of a hazard and its cancer-producing potential, both in clinical and epidemiologic studies and in laboratory tests using animals or cell systems. Special attention is given to any evidence suggesting that cancer risk increases with increases in exposure. The second step measures the concentrations of the substance in the environment (air, water, food, etc.) and the extent to which people are actually exposed (how much they eat of a particular food, use a particular water source, etc.). Knowledge of how the body absorbs chemicals or is exposed to radiation is essential for such dose measurements.

Unfortunately, evidence of risk for most potential carcinogens is usually the result of high-dose experiments on animals or observations where high-dose exposures have occurred in humans. To use such information to set human safety standards, scientists must extrapolate from animals to humans and from high-dose to low-dose conditions. Because both extrapolations involve much uncertainty, conservative assumptions are used so that risk assessment will err on the side of safety. For cancer safety standards, only increased risks of one case or less per million. persons over a lifetime are usually acceptable.

Safety standards developed in this way for chemical or radiation exposures are the basis for federal regulatory activities at the Food and Drug Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The application of laws and procedures by which standards are implemented and risks are controlled is called risk management.

Poisonous chemical :
Various chemicals (for example, benzene, asbestos, vinyl chloride, arsenic, aflatoxin) show definite evidence of human carcinogenicity; . others are considered probable human carcinogens based on evidence from animal experiments (for example, chloroform, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane [DDT], formaldehyde, polychlorinated biphenyls [PCBs], polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons). Often in the past, direct evidence of

human carcinogenicity has come from studies of workplace conditions involving sustained, high-close exposures. Occasionally, risks are greatly increased when particular exposures occur together (for example, asbestos exposure and cigarette smoking).

Ultraviolet Radiation :
Only high-frequency radiation-ionizing radiation (IR) and ultraviolet (UV) radiation-has been proven to cause human cancer. Exposure to sunlight (UV radiation) causes almost all cases of basal and squamous cell skin
cancer and is a major cause of skin melanoma. Disruption of the earth's ozone layer by atmospheric chemical pollution (the "ozone hole") may lead to rising levels of UV radiation.

Evidence that high-close IR (x-rays, radon, etc.) causes cancer comes from studies of atomic bomb survivors, patients receiving radiotherapy, and certain occupational groups (for example, uranium miners). Virtually any part of the body can be affected by IR, but especially bone marrow and the thyroid gland. Diagnostic medical and dental x-rays are set at the lowest dose levels possible to minimize risk without losing image quality. Radon exposures in homes can increase lung cancer risk, especially in cigarette smokers; remedial actions may be needed if radon levels are too high.

Unknown Risks :
Public concern about environmental cancer risks often focuses on risks for which no carcinogenicity has been proven or on situations where known carcinogen exposures are at such low levels that risks are negligible. For example:

Pesticides. Many kinds of pesticides (insecticides, herbicides, etc.) are widely used in producing and marketing our food supply. Although high doses of some of these chemicals cause cancer in experimental animals, the very low concentrations found in some foods are generally well within established safety levels. Environmental pollution by slowly degraded pesticides such as DOT, a result of past agricultural practices, can lead to food chain bioaccumulation and to persistent residues in body fat. Such residues have been suggested as a possible risk factor for breast cancer. Studies have shown that concentrations in tissue are low, however, and the evidence has not been conclusive. Continued research regarding pesticide use is essential for maximum food safety, improved food production through alternative pest control methods, and reduced pollution of the environment. In the meantime, pesticides playa valuable role in sustaining our food supply. When properly controlled, the minimal risks they pose are greatly overshadowed by the health benefits of a diverse diet rich in foods from plant sources.

Non-ionizing radiation. Electromagnetic radiation at frequencies below ionizing and ultraviolet levels has not been shown to cause cancer. While some epidemiologic studies suggest associations with cancer, others do not, and experimental studies have not yielded reproducible evidence of carcinogenic mechanisms. Low-frequency radiation includes radiowaves, microwaves, and radar, as well as power frequency radiation arising from the electric and magnetic fields associated with electric currents (extremely low-frequency radiation).

Toxic wastes. Toxic wastes in dump sites can threaten human health through air, water, and soil pollution. Although many toxic chemicals contained in such wastes can be carcinogenic at high doses, most community exposures appear to involve very low or negligible dose levels. Clean-up of existing dump sites and close control of toxic.

Homeopathic Treatment for Cancer or Carcinoma Malignant Tumor

Definition
Cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the body. Cancerous cells are also called malignant cells.
Read More
Alternative Names
Carcinoma Malignant Tumor

Cells are the building blocks of living things. Cancer grows out of normal cells in the body. Normal cells multiply when the body needs them, and die when the body doesn't. Cancer appears to occur when the growth of cells in the body is out of control and cells divide too rapidly. It can also occur when cells “forget” how to die.

There are many different kinds of Cancer.. Cancer can develop in almost any organ or tissue, such as the lung, colon, breast, skin, bones, or nerve tissue.

There are multiple causes of cancers, including:
  • Radiation
  • Sunlight
  • Tobacco
  • Certain viruses
  • Benzene
  • Certain poisonous mushrooms and aflatoxins (a poison produced by organisms that can grow on peanut plants)

However, the cause of many cancers remains unknown.

The most common cause of cancer-related death is lung cancer.

The three most common cancers in men in the United States are Prostate cancer, Lung cancer and colon cancer. In women in the U.S., the three most frequently occurring cancers are Breast cancer, lung cancer, and colon cancer.

Certain cancers are more common in particular geographic areas. For example, in Japan, there are many cases of Gastric cancer, while in the U.S. this type of cancer is relatively rare. Differences in diet may play a role.

Some other types of cancers include:
  • Brain Cancer
  • Brest Cancer
  • Uterine Cancer
  • Liver Cancer
  • Leukemia
  • Hosking’s lymphoma
  • Kidney Cancer
  • Thyroid Cancer
  • Ovarian Cancer

Symptoms
Symptoms of cancer depend on the type and location of the tumor. For example, lung cancer can cause coughing, shortness of breathing or chest pain, while colon cancer often causes Diarrhea, Constipations, Coughing, and Blood in stool

Some cancers may not have any symptoms at all. In some cancers, such as Gallbladder Cancer, symptoms often are not present until the disease has reached an advanced stage.

However, the following symptoms are common with most cancers:
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Night sweats
  • Weight loss
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fatigue
  • Malaise

Signs and tests

Like symptoms, the signs of cancer vary based on the type and location of the tumor. Common tests include the following:
  • CT Scan
  • Complete blood count (CBC)
  • Blood chemistries
  • Biopsy of the tumor
  • Bone marrow Biopsy (for lymphoma or leukemia)
  • Chest X-ray

Most cancers are diagnosed by biopsy. Depending on the location of the tumor, the biopsy may be a simple procedure or a serious operation. Most patients with cancer undergo CT scans to determine the exact location of the tumor or tumors.

A cancer diagnosis is difficult to cope with. It is important, however, that you discuss the type, size, and location of the cancer with your doctor upon diagnosis. You also will want to ask about treatment options, along with their benefits and risks.

Treatment
Cancer mainly cures homeopathy treatment is 30% successive case to cure completely. Main use Ars.alb, Ferrum metallicum, Belladonna, Thuja, Carcinosin, give according Dr Harshad Raval MD [Hom].

Complications

One complication is that the cancer may spread. Other complications vary with the type and stage of the tumor.

Prevention
One of the best ways to prevent cancer is to not smoke or chew tobacco. Many cancers can be prevented by avoiding risk factors such as excessive exposure to sunlight and heavy drinking.

Cancer screenings, such as mammography and breast examination for breast cancer and colonoscopy for colon cancer, may help catch these cancers at their early, most treatable stages. Some people at high risk for developing certain cancers can take medication to reduce their risk.

Brain Tumor Treatment

Definition
A primary brain tumor is a group (mass) of abnormal cells that start in the brain. This article focuses on primary Brain Tumor in adults.
Read More
See also:
  • Brain tumor-Mata static (cancer that has spread to the brain)
  • Brain tumor-children

Alternative Names

Glioblastoma multiform - adults;Ependymoma - adults; Glioma - adults; Astrocytoma - adults; Medulloblastoma - adults; Neuroglioma - adults; Oligodenroglioma - adults; Meningioma - adults; Cancer - brain tumor (adults)

Causes, incidence, and risk factors

Primary brain tumors include any tumor that starts in the brain. Tumors may be confined to a small area, invasive (spread to nearby areas), benign (not cancerous), or malignant (cancerous).

Tumors can directly destroy brain cells. They can also indirectly damage cells by producing inflammation, compressing other parts of the brain as the tumor grows, causing swelling in the brain, and increasing pressure with the scalp.

Brain tumors are classified depending on the exact site of the tumor, the type of tissue involved, benign or malignant tendencies of the tumor, and other factors. Primary brain tumors can arise from the brain cells, the meanings (membranes around the brain), nerves, or glands.

The cause of primary brain tumors is unknown. This is because they are rare, there are many types, and there are many possible risk factors that could play a role. Exposure to some types of radiation, head injury, and hormone replacement therapy may be risk factors, as well as many others. The risk of using cell phones is hotly debated.

Some inherited conditions increase the risk of brain tumors, including neurofibromatosis, Von Hippel-Lindau syndrome, Li-fraumenj syndrome, and Turcot's syndrome.

Tumors may occur at any age, but many specific tumors have a particular age group in which they are most common. In adults, gliomas and meningiomas are most common.

SPECIFIC TUMOR TYPES

Gliomas are thought to be derived from glial cells such as astrocytes, oligodendrocytes, and ependymal cells. The gliomas are subdivided into 3 types:
  • Astrocytic tumors include astrocytomas (less malignant), anaplastic astrocytomas, and glioblastomas (most malignant). Astrocytomas can progress over time more malignant forms, including glioblastoma.
  • Oligodendroglial tumors also can vary from low grade to very malignant. Some primary brain tumors are composed of both astrocytic and oligodendrocytic tumors. These are called mixed gliomas.
  • Glioblastomas are the most aggressive type of primary brain tumor. These may or may not arise from a prior lower grade primary brain tumor.

Meningiomas are another type of brain tumor. These tumors:
  • Occur most commonly between the ages of 40-70
  • Much more common in women.
  • While 90% are benign, they still may cause devastating complications and death due to their size or location. Some are cancerous and aggressive.

Other primary brain tumors in adults are rare and include ependymomas, carniopharygiomas, pituitary tumors, pineal gland tumors, and primary gem cell tumors of the brain.

Symptoms

The specific symptoms depend on the tumor's size, location, degree of invasion, and related swelling. Headaches, seizures, weakness in one part of the body, and changes in the person's mental functions are most common.
Symptoms may include:
  • Headache -- a persistent headache that is new for the person, worse on awakening
  • Vomiting -- possibly accompanied by nausea; more severe in the morning
  • Personality and behavior changes
  • Emotional instability, rapid emotional changes
  • Loss of memory, impaired judgment
  • Seizures that are new for the person
  • Reduced alertness
  • Double vision, decreased vision
  • Hearing loss
  • Deceased Sensation of a body area
  • Weakness of a body area
  • Speech difficulties
  • Decreased co-ordination, clumsiness, falls
  • Fever (sometimes)
  • Weakness, Lethargy
  • General ill feeling
  • Descrbrats posture
  • Decorticate posture

Additional symptoms that may be associated with primary brain tumors:
  • Tongue problem
  • Swallowing difficulty
  • Impaired sense of smell
  • Obesity
  • Uncontrollable movement
  • Dysfunctions movement
  • Absent menstruation
  • Hiccups
  • Hand tremor
  • Face paralysis
  • Eye abnormalities
  • Pupils Different sizes
  • Uncontrollable movements
  • eyelid drooping
  • Confusion
  • Breathing, absent temporarily

Un Signs and tests

A doctor can often identify signs and symptoms that are specific to the location of the tumor. Some tumors may not show symptoms until they are very large and cause a rapid decline in the person's mental functions. Other tumors have symptoms that develop slowly.

Most brain tumors increase pressure within the skull and compress brain tissue because of their size and weight.

The following tests may confirm the presence of a brain tumor and identify its location:
  • CT scan of the head
  • MRRI of the head
  • EEG
  • Examination of tissue removed from the tumor during surgery or CT-guided Biopsy (may confirm the exact type of tumor)
  • Examination of the cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) may reveal cancerous cells

Belladonna, Thuja, Carcinosin, give according Dr Harshad Raval MD [Hom]. Advice.

Homeopathy Treatment for Breast Cancer


There are two main types of breast cancer:
  • Ductal carcinoma starts in the tubes (ducts) that move milk from the breast to the nipple. Most breast cancers are of this type.
  • Lobular carcinoma starts in parts of the breast, called lobules, that produce milk.

Alternative Names

Cancer - breast; Carcinoma - ductal; Carcinoma - lobular

Causes, incidence, and risk factors

Over the course of a lifetime, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer.
Risk factors you cannot change include:

Age and gender -- Your risk of developing breast cancer increases as you get older. The majority of advanced breast cancer cases are found in women over age 50. Women are 100 times more likely to get breast cancer then men.

Family history of breast cancer -- You may also have a higher risk for breast cancer if you have a close relative has had breast, uterine, ovarian, or colon cancer. About 20-30% of women with breast cancer have a family history of the disease.

Genes -- Some people have genes that make them more prone to developing breast cancer. The most common gene defects are found in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. These genes normally produce proteins that protect you from cancer. But if a parent passes you a defective gene, you have an increased risk for breast cancer. Women with one of these defects have up to an 80% chance of getting breast cancer sometime during their life.

Other genetic defects have been linked to breast cancer, including those found in the ATM gene, the CHEK-2 gene, and the p53 tumor suppressor gene, but these are very rare.

Menstrual cycle -- Women who get their periods early (before age 12) or went through menopause late (after age 55) have an increased risk for breast cancer.
Other risk factors include:

Alcohol use -- Drinking more than 1-2 glasses of alcohol a day may increase your risk for breast cancer.

Childbirth -- Women who have never had children or who had them only after age 30 have an increased risk for breast cancer. Being pregnant more than once or becoming pregnant at an early age reduces your risk of breast cancer.
.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) -- You have a higher risk for breast cancer if you have received hormone replacement therapy for several years or more. Many women take HRT to reduce the symptoms of menopause.

Obesity -- Obesity has been linked to breast cancer, although this link is controversial. The theory is that obese women produce more estrogen, which can fuel the development of breast cancer.

Radiation -- If you received radiation therapy as a child or young adult to treat cancer of the chest area, you have a significantly higher risk for developing breast cancer. The younger you started such radiation, the higher your risk -- especially if the radiation was given when a female was developing breasts.
Men get breast cancer, too. Symptoms include breast lump and breast pain and tenderness.

Symptoms of advanced breast cancer may include:
  • Bone pain
  • Breast pain or discomfort
  • Skin ulcers
  • Swelling of one arm (next to breast with cancer)
  • Weight loss

Signs and tests

The doctor will ask you about your symptoms and risk factors, and then perform a physical exami., which includes both breasts, armpits, and the neck and chest area. Additional tests may include:
  • Mammography to help identify the breast lump
  • Breast MRI to help better identify the breast lump
  • Breast ultrasound to show whether the lump is solid or fluid-filled
  • Breast biopsy, needle aspiration, or breast lump removal to remove all or part of the breast lump for closer examination by a laboratory specialist

If your doctor learns that you do have breast cancer, additional tests will be done to see if the cancer has spread. This is called staging. Staging helps guide future treatment and follow-up and gives you some idea of what to expect in the future.

Breast cancer stages range from 0 to IV. In general, breast cancer that stays where it has started is called in situ or noninvasive breast cancer. If it spreads, it is called invasive breast cancer. The higher the number, the more advanced the cancer.

Treatment

Breast Cancer cures homeopathy treatment is 80% successive case to cure completely. Main use, Phytoleca,Bryonia, Sepia, Pulsetila, Nat. Mur. Staphysegaria, Lilium tig, Carcinosin, gives according Dr Harshad Raval MD [Hom]. Advice.

Expectations (prognosis)

How well you do after being treated for breast cancer depends on many things. The more advanced your cancer, the poorer the outcome.

The 5-year survival rate refers to the number of patients who live at least 5 years after their cancer is found. According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), the 5-year survival rates for persons with breast cancer that is appropriately treated are as follows:
  • 100% for stage 0
  • 100% for stage I
  • 92% for stage IIA
  • 81% for stage IIB
  • 67% for stage IIIA
  • 54% for stage IIIB
  • 20% for stage IV

Complications

New, improved treatments are helping persons with breast cancer live longer than ever before. However, even with treatment, breast cancer can spread to other parts of the body. Sometimes, cancer returns even after the entire tumor is removed and nearby lymph nodes are found to be cancer-free.

You may experience side effects or complications from cancer treatment. For example, radiation therapy may cause temporary swelling of the breast, and aches and pains around the area. Ask your doctor about the side effects you may have during treatment.

Prevention

Many risk factors -- such as your genes and family history -- cannot be controlled. However, a healthy diet and a few lifestyle changes may reduce your overall chance of cancer in general.
Breast cancer is more easily treated and often curable if it is found early.
Early detection involves:
  • Breast self-exams (BSE)
  • Clinical breast exams by a medical professional
  • Screening mammography

Most experts recommend that women age 20 and older examine their breasts once a month during the week following the menstrual period.

Women between the ages 20 and 39 should have a doctor examine their breasts at least once every 3 years. After age 40, women should a clinical breast exam every year.

Mammography is the most effective way of detecting breast cancer early.
Screening recommendations:
  • The American Cancer Society recommends mammogram screening every year for all women age 40 and older. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) recommends mammogram screening every 1-2 years for women age 40 and older.
  • If you are high risk, experts say you should start getting a mammogram at age 30. Certain women at high risk of breast cancer should also have a breast MRI along with their yearly mammogram. Ask your doctor if you need an MRI.
  • For those at high risk, including those who have or had a close family member with the disease, annual mammograms should begin 10 years earlier than the age at which the relative was diagnosed.

Questions have been raised about the benefit of screening mammography in women under age 50 and over the age of 69. Annual mammograms in women between 50 and 69 have been show to save lives. But while screening can also detect early breast cancer in younger and older women, it has not been shown to save lives.

This is a topic filled with controversy. A woman needs to have an informed and balanced discussion with her doctor, along with doing additional reading and researching on her own, to determine if mammography is right for her.

Women at very high risk for breast cancer may consider preventive (prophylactic) mastectomy, which is the surgical removal of the breasts. Possible candidates for this procedure may include those who have already had one breast removed due to cancer, women with a strong family history of breast cancer, and persons with genes or genetic mutations that raise their risk of breast cancer.

Homeopathy Treatment of Liver Cancer

Definition
Hepatocellular carcinoma is cancer of the liver.

Alternative Names
Primary liver cell carcinoma; Tumor - liver; Liver cancer; Cancer - liver
Read More
Causes, incidence, and risk factorsHepatocellular carcinoma accounts for 80 - 90% of all liver cancer. This type of cancer occurs more often in men than women, usually in people 50 to 60 years old. The disease is more common in parts of Africa and Asia than in North or South America and Europe.

The cause of liver cancer is usually cirrosis (scarring of the liver). Cirrhosis may be caused by viral hepatitis, primarily hepatitis B and C, alcohol abuse, Hemochromatosis, certain Autoimmune disease of the liver, and other diseases that result in chronic inflammation of the liver. The most common cause for cirrhosis in the United States is alcohol abuse.

Symptoms
  • Abdominal Pain or tenderness, particularly in the right-upper quadrant
  • Enlarged abdomen
  • Easy bruising or bleeding
  • Jaundice (a yellow discoloration of the skin and eyes)

Signs and tests
  • Physical examination shows an enlarged, tender liver.
  • A liver biopsy shows hepatocellular carcinoma.
  • Serum alpha fetoprotein may be elevated.
  • There may be a mass shown on abdominal CT scan.
  • A liver Scan may indicate an abnormality.
  • Liver enzymes are elevated.

Expectations (prognosis)

The usual outcome is poor, because only 10 - 20% of hepatocellular Caecinosmas can be removed completely using surgery. If the cancer cannot be completely removed, the disease is usually deadly within 3 to 6 months, although this varies greatly. Survival much longer than this occasionally occurs.

Complications
  • Gastrointestinal bleeding
  • Liver failure
  • Spread of the carcinoma

Prevention

Preventing and treating viral hepatitis may help reduce risk. Avoid excessive alcohol consumption. Certain patients may benefit from hemochromatosis screening.

  • Detection of Reed-Sternberg (Hodgkin's lymphoma) cells by biopsy

A staging evaluation (tumor staging) may be done to determine the extent of the disease. The following procedures may be done:
  • Physical examination
  • CT scans of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis
  • Bone marrow biopsy
  • Blood chemisthy tests
  • PET scan

In some cases, abdominal surgery to take a piece of the liver and remove the spleen may be needed. However, because the other tests are now so good at detecting the spread of Hodgkin's lymphoma, this surgery is usually unnecessary.
Hodgkin's lymphoma may change the results of the following tests:
  • Lymphocyte count
  • Small bowel biopsy
  • Schirmer's test
  • Peritoneal fluid analysis
  • Mediastinoscopy with biopsy
  • Gallium scan
  • Ferritin
  • Cytology exam of pleural fluid
  • Cryoglobulines
  • Bone marrow aspiration
  • Blood Differential
  • ACE levels

Treatment

Hodking’s Disease mainly cures homeopathy treatment is 80% successive case to cure completely. Main use Ars.alb, Ars.iod, phos,iod Ferrum metallicum, Belladonna, Thuja, Carcinosin, give according Dr Harshad Raval MD [Hom]. Advice.


Expectations (prognosis)
With appropriate treatment, more than 80% of people with stage I or II Hodgkin's survive for at least 10 years. With widespread disease, the treatment is more intense and the 5-year survival rate is about 60%.
Complications
  • Other cancers
  • Lung problems
  • Liver failure
  • Adverse effects of radiation and chemotherapy
  • Inability to have children (sterility)

Homeopathy Treatment of Kidney Cancer

Definition
Renal cell Carcinoma is a type of kidney disease. The cancerous cells are found in the lining of very small tubes (tubules) in the kidney. It is the most common type of kidney cancer in adults.

Alternative Names

Renal cancer; Kidney cancer; Hypernephroma; Adenocarcinoma of renal cells; Cancer - kidney

Causes, incidence, and risk factors

Renal cell carcinoma affects about 3 in 10,000 people, resulting in about 32,000 new cases in the US per year. Every year, about 12,000 people in the US die from renal cell carcinoma. It occurs is most common in people between 50 and 70 years of age, and typically affects men.

The exact cause is unknown.
Risk factors include:
  • Smoking
  • Genetics
  • Family history of the disease
  • Dialysis treatment
  • von Hippel-Lindau disease, a hereditary disease that affects the capillaries of the brain

The first symptom is usually Blood in the urine. Sometimes both Kidney are involved. The Cancer spreads easily, most often to the Lungs and other organs. About one-third of patients have spreading at the time of diagnosis.
Symptoms
  • Blood in the urine
  • Abdominal urine color (dark, rusty, or brown)
  • Flank pain
  • Back pain
  • Abdominal pain
  • Unitentional weight loss of more than 5% of body weight
  • Emaciated, thin, malnourished appearance
  • Enlargement of one testicle
  • Swelling or enlargement of the abdomen

Additional symptoms that may be associated with this disease:
  • Vision abdominalities
  • painless
  • Exassive hair grown in females
  • Constipation
  • Cold intolerance

Signs and tests
Palpation of the abdomen may show a mass or organ enlargement, particularly of the kidney or liver. There may be a testicular varicocele in men.
  • Complete blood count
  • Urine test may show red blood cells
  • Serum calcium levels may be high
  • SGPT and alkaline phosphatase may be high
  • A urine cystology
  • Liver function test
  • An ultrasound of the adbomen and kidney
  • Kidney X-ray
  • IVP
  • Renal arteriography

The following tests may be performed to see if the cancer has spread:
  • An Abdominal ct scan may show a liver mass.
  • Abdominal MRI can determine if the cancer has spread to any surrounding blood vesseles and whether it can be surgically removed.
  • A Chest X-ray may show mass in the chest.
  • A Bone scan may show involvement of the bones.

Expectations (prognosis)
The outcome varies depending on the degree of metastasis. The 5-year survival rate is around 60 - 75% if the tumor is in the early stages and has not spread outside the kidney. If it has metastasized to the lymph nodes, the 5-year survival is around 5 - 15%. If it has spread to other organs, the 5-year survival at less than 5%.
Complications
  • Hypertension
  • Metastasis of the cancer

Prevention
Stop smoking. Follow your health care provider's recommendations in the treatment of kidney disorders, especially those that may require dialysis.
Treatment:

Kidney Cancer cures homeopathy treatment is 80% successive case to cure completely. Main use Ars.alb,. Plumbum metalicum Ars. iod, phos,iod Ferrum metallicum, Belladonna, Thuja, Carcinosin, give according Dr Harshad Raval MD [Hom]. Advice.

Thyroid Cancer Treatment by Homeopathy Medicine

Definition
Thyroid cancer is a malignancy (cancerous growth) of the thyroid gland.
Read More
Alternative Names

Tumor - thyroid; Cancer - thyroid

Causes, incidence, and risk factors

Thyroid cancer can occur in all age groups. People who have had Radiation therapy to the neck are at higher risk. This therapy was commonly used in the 1950s to treat enlarged thymus glands, adenoids and tonsils, and Skin disorders. People who received radiation therapy as children have a higher incidence of thyroid cancer
.
Other risk factors are a family history of thyroid cancer and chronic goiter. The disease affects 1 in 1,000 people.
There are several types of thyroid cancer:
  • Papillary carcinoma is the most common and usually affects women of child-bearing age. It metastasizes (spreads from the original site) slowly and is the least malignant type of thyroid cancer.
  • Follicular carcinoma accounts for about 30% of all cases and has a greater rate of recurrence and metastasis.
  • Medullary carcinoma is a cancer of non-thyroid cells in the thyroid gland and tends to occur in families. It requires different treatment from other types of thyroid cancer.
  • Anaplastic carcinoma (also called giant and spindle cell cancer) is the most malignant form of thyroid cancer. It is rare, but does not respond to radioiodine therapy. Anaplastic carcinoma metastasizes quickly and invades nearby structures such as the trachea, causing compression and Breathing difficulties.

Symptoms
  • Enlargement of the thyroid gland
  • Neck swelling
  • A thyroid nodule
  • Hoarseness or changing voice
  • Cough or cough with bleeding
  • Difficulty swallowing

Note: Symptoms may vary depending on the type of thyroid cancer

Signs and tests

A physical examination can reveal a thyroid mass or nodule (usually in the lower part of the front of the neck), or enlarged lymph nodes in the neck.
Tests that indicate thyroid cancer:
  • Thyroid biopsy showing anaplastic, follicular, medullary or papillary cancer cells
  • Ultrasound of the thyroid showing a nodul
  • Thyroid scan showing cold nodule (a nodule that does not light up on scan)
  • Larynoscopy showing paralyzed vocal cords
  • Elevated serum calcitonin (for medullary cancer) or serum thyroglobulin (for papillary or follicular cancer)

This disease may also alter the results of the following tests:
  • T4
  • T3
  • TSH

Treatment

Thyroid Cancer cures homeopathy treatment is 80% successive case to cure completely. Main use Cal.Carb,Cal. Flor, Ferr.metallicum, Thyroidinum, Carcinosin, give according Dr Harshad Raval MD [Hom]. Advice.

Expectations (prognosis)

Anaplastic carcinoma has the worst prognosis (probable outcome) of all the types of thyroid cancer, and has an expected life span of less than 6 months after diagnosis. Follicular carcinoma are often fast growing and may invade other tissues, but the probable outcome is still good -- over 90% of patients are cured.
The outcome with medullary carcinoma varies. Women under 40 years old have a better chance of a good outcome. The cure rate is 40-50%.
Papillary carcinomas are usually slower growing. Most people are cured (over 95%) and have a normal life expectancy.

Complications
  • Low calcium levels from inadvertent removal of the parathyroid glands during surgery
  • Injury to the voice box or nerve and hoarseness after surgery
  • Spread of the cancer to the lung or other parts of the body

Prevention

There is no known prevention. Awareness of risk (such as previous radiation therapy) can allow earlier diagnosis and treatment.

Homeopathy Treatment of Overian Cancer

Definition
Ovarian cancer is cancer that starts in the ovaries. The ovaries are the female reproductive organs that produce eggs.
Read More
Alternative Names

Cancer - ovaries

Causes, incidence, and risk factors

A woman has a 1 in 67 chance of developing ovarian cancer. Ovarian cancer is the fifth most common cancer among women, and it causes more deaths than any other type of female reproductive cancer.

The cause is unknown.
The risk for developing ovarian cancer appears to be affected by several factors. The more children a woman has and the earlier in life she gives birth, the lower her risk of ovarian cancer. Certain genes (BRCA1 and BRCA2) are responsible for a small number of ovarian cancer cases. Women with a personal history of breast cancer or a family history of breast or ovarian cancer have an increased risk for ovarian cancer
.
The use of fertility drugs may be associated with an increased chance of developing ovarian cancer, although this is a subject of ongoing debate.

The links between ovarian cancer and talc use, asbestos exposure, a high-fat diet, and childhood mumps infection are controversial and have not been definitively proven.
Older women are at highest risk. About two-thirds of the deaths from ovarian cancer occur in women age 55 and older. About 25% of ovarian cancer deaths occur in women between 35 and 54 years of age.

Ovarian cancer symptoms are often vague and non-specific, so women and doctors often blame the symptoms on other, more common conditions. By the time the cancer is diagnosed, the tumor has often spread beyond the ovaries.

Symptoms
  • Sense of pelvic heaviness
  • Vague lower abdominal discomfort
  • Vaginal bleeding
  • Weight gain or loss
  • Abnormal menstrual cycles
  • Unexplained back pain that worsens over time
  • Increased abdominal girth
  • Non-specific gastrointestinal symptoms:
    • Increased gas
    • Indigestion
    • lack of appetite
    • Nausea and vomiting
    • Inability to ingest usual volumes of food
    • Bloating

Additional symptoms that may be associated with this disease:
  • Increased urinary frequency or urgency
  • Exassive hair groth

Signs and tests

A Physical examination may reveal increased abdominal girth and Ascites (fluid within the abdominal cavity). A pelvic examination may reveal an ovarian or Abdominal mass.
Tests include:
  • CBC
  • Blood chemistry
  • CA125
  • Quantitative Serum HCG)
  • Alpha fetoprotein
  • Urinalysis
  • Gl series
  • Exploratory laparoscopy
  • Ultrasound
  • Abdominal CT scan or MRI abdomen

Treatment

Overian Cancer cures homeopathy treatment is 80% successive case to cure completely. Main use Nat mur,Pulsetilla, Sepia Cal.Carb,Cal. Flor, Ferr.metallicum, Thyroidinum, Carcinosin, give according Dr Harshad Raval MD [Hom]. Advice.

Expectations (prognosis)

Ovarian cancer is rarely diagnosed in its early stages. It is usually quite advanced by the time diagnosis is made. The outcome is often poor.
  • About 76% of women with ovarian cancer survive 1 year after diagnosis.
  • About 45% live longer than 5 years after diagnosis.
  • If diagnosis is made early in the disease and treatment is received before the cancer spreads outside the ovary, the 5-year survival rate is about 94%.

Complications
  • Spread of the cancer to other organs
  • Loss of organ function
  • Fluid in the abdomen
  • Blockage of the intestines

Prevention

Having regular pelvic examinations may decrease the overall risk. Screening tests for ovarian cancer remains a very active research area. To date, there is no cost-effective screening test for ovarian cancer, so more than 50% of women with ovarian cancer are diagnosed in the late stages of the disease.
