This is nearly one in five deaths. 1, 2, 3 •Smoking causes more deaths each year than the following causes combined: 4 oHuman immunodeficiency virus (HIV) OIllegal drug use OAlcohol use OMotor vehicle injuries OFirearm-related incidents •More than 10 times as many you. S. Citizens have died prematurely from cigarette smoking than have died in all the wars fought by the United States during its history. 1 •Smoking causes about 90% (or 9 out of 10) of all lung cancer deaths in men and women. 1, 2 More women die from lung cancer each year than from breast cancer. 5 •About 80% (or 8 out of 10) of all deaths from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are caused by smoking. 1 •Cigarette smoking increases risk for death from all causes in men and women. 1 •The risk of dying from cigarette smoking has increased over the last 50 years in men and women in the United States. 1 Smoking and Increased Health Risks Smokers are more likely than nonsmokers to develop heart disease, stroke, and lung cancer. 1 •Smoking is estimated to increase the risk— oFor coronary heart disease by 2 to 4 times1, 6 OFor stroke by 2 to 4 times1 OOf men developing lung cancer by 25 times1 OOf women developing lung cancer by 25.7 times1 •Smoking causes diminished overall health, increased absenteeism from work, and increased health care utilization and cost. 1 Smoking and Cardiovascular Disease Smokers are at greater risk for diseases that affect the heart and blood vessels (cardiovascular disease). •Smoking causes stroke and coronary heart disease, which are among the leading causes of death in the United States. 1, 3 •Even people who smoke fewer than five cigarettes a day can have early signs of cardiovascular disease. 1 •Smoking damages blood vessels and can make them thicken and grow narrower.

Smoking increases risks for: 1, 2, 5 oPreterm (early) delivery OStillbirth (death of the baby before birth) OLow birth weight OSudden infant death syndrome (known as SIDS or crib death) OEctopic pregnancy OOrofacial clefts in infants •Smoking can also affect men's sperm, which can reduce fertility and also increase risks for birth defects and miscarriage. 2 •Smoking can affect bone health. 1, 5 oWomen past childbearing years who smoke have weaker bones than women who never smoked, and are at greater risk for broken bones. •Smoking affects the health of your teeth and gums and can cause tooth loss. 1 •Smoking can increase your risk for cataracts (clouding of the eye’s lens that makes it hard for you to see) and age-related macular degeneration (damage to a small spot near the center of the retina, the part of the eye needed for central vision. 1 •Smoking is a cause of type 2 diabetes mellitus and can make it harder to control.

Knowing This Can Help You Prevent Ovarian Cancer

Knowing This Can Help You Prevent Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian cancer is the most common cancer to affect the female reproductive system. The exact cause of ovarian cancer is not yet known and the risk factors involved are numerous, the most prevalent of which are genetic defects and hereditary problems.

The symptoms of ovarian cancer are not always clear and range from pelvic and abdominal pains to irregularities in the menstrual cycle. Women beyond the age of 50 are most at risk of developing this type of cancer and the risk factor increases in case of family history.

Prevention of  Ovarian Cancer

There is no sure shot way of preventing ovarian cancer. Some factors such as genetics cannot be controlled at all. There are, however, ways to take precaution against it through some simple lifestyle choices. A few of those ways are as follows:

Eat a healthy balanced diet which is rich in all the nutrients, vitamins and minerals that the body requires for boosting and maintaining immunity.

Exercise regularly and stay active. Maintaining fitness is an important aspect of preventing the onset of all sorts of diseases and disorders.

Go for frequent health checkups and make regular consultations with your gynaecologist so as to ensure early detection of the problem.

Another notable way of avoiding ovarian cancer is taking birth control pills which are known to reduce the risk levels. However, studies have shown that there are other health risks associated with taking birth control pills and hence you should always consult a gynaecologist for a proper prescription.

'Consult'.

MD - Radiation Oncology, MBBS
Oncologist,
Avoid smoking, alcohol, tobacco in any form. Do regular exercises, maintain ideal weight, add fruits and vegetables in your diet. If working with chemicals take proper and recommended precautions try taking organic food vaccination for hepatitis b should be taken. For ladies hpv vaccine should be administered. These are some habits which will help but there is no 100% way to avoid cancer.

Hello sir, I'm 26 year's old I have found my right side breast is small and left side is big is it cancer. Please tell me.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
No mam, only disproportion due to adherence of breast tissues to chest wall or enlargement of breast due to lump is suspicious. Some amount of natural disproportion is usually present in some females. Look for any lump or thickening. Since you are young you can get an ultrasound done to look for any small lump or lesion.
