6 Tips to Reduce the Risk of Cancer

6 Tips to Reduce the Risk of Cancer

We live in an age where every single individual, more or less, is exposed to the risk of cancer. It is probably an unfavorable lifestyle we lead that deprives us of good health. This might alarm many but considerable changes in lifestyle can help you realize cancer as a preventable disease. Cancer does not only make you undergo severe suffering but it also affects your friends and family. The pallor of misery spreads wider than you think.

  • Abstain from tobacco: Consuming raw tobacco or smoking tobacco can be equally detrimental to your health. Tobacco increases your chances of contracting the disease. As is known, passive smoking can also affect your health adversely. Tobacco can be the potential cause behind cancer of the mouth, throat, larynx, lungs, oral cavity and even the pancreas. It might harm your kidneys and cervix. It is upon you to quit tobacco at the earliest possible. One should also try and persuade friends and relatives to give up smoking.
  • Drink alcohol in moderation: Complete abstinence from alcohol might not be possible if you have already been ushered into your work- life. The society might require you to be an occasional drinker. It is important to drink in moderation. Crossing the limit can propel consequences as serious as cancer of the stomach, pancreas, liver and the heart.
  • A balanced and nutritious diet: Deciding on a plant- based diet or a Mediterranean diet can aid your fight against the risk of cancer. A Mediterranean diet will involve green leafy vegetables, lots of fresh fruits, whole grains, mixed nuts, legumes and also the use of extra- virgin olive oil. Fish can be a safe bet but red meat should be avoided. One must also try to avoid processed meat as they tend to make you prone to the risk of cancer.
  • Immunization: Hepatitis B and HPV or Human papilloma virus vaccines are extremely necessary to protect you against the sexually transmitted types of cancer.
  • Sun protection: Caring for your skin doesn't arise from vanity. Skin cancer is one of the most prevalent kinds of cancer; the chances of this disease can be restricted by remaining in shade especially during midday, by wearing covered clothes and by using a good sunscreen lotion repeatedly while outside.
  • Exercise diligently: Did you think it was okay to have weaker muscles and bulging layers of fat? If yes, you probably have grown numb to the inadequacies you face in result. Unchecked fat can lead to obesity which further complicates health conditions. Metabolic activity differs from person to person. Regular exercising can help regulate metabolism according to the needs of your body. Physical exercise protects you against the risk of breast and colon cancer. Moderate or vigorous physical activity for 150 to 75 minutes a week respectively can reduce the risk of cancer. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Hi Borne sarcom treatment given to 23 old male+5 chemo+5 radiation given. Now doctors asked to do operation so we hesitate due to risk factors so we decided not to do operation. Now doctors say to again start chemo. So we r confused whether chemo will be good or starting ayurvedic medicine will be good. And what r other risk of chemotherapy vs ayurvedic. CT/Scan, mri are done. PLEASE GIVE VALUABLE ADVICE OR prescription TO US. Thank you.

MBBS, MD - Medicine, MD - Oncology

Dear, sarcoma is a fast growing tumor in spite of chemotherapy and radiotherapy recurrence is a rule. If after surgery there is no spread anywhere in the body surgery should be done and diseased part completely removed with enough normal surrounding tissue. Spread to lungs is common. Only chemotherapy is time pass. Ayurvedic success is not established and is again time pass.

About breast cancer
Breast cancer is on the rise largely due to changing lifestyle and dietary patterns among woman in urban india. With fewer women opting for babies and lactating for lesser time than their mothers, they are at a higher risk of facing this condition

Hi I am bhanu age 22 if we scan total body. Is cancer is there are not because my dad and dad brother died due to cancer if reports are negative in life cancer will come again ah or not.

MBBS, MD, Fellowship in Intergrative medicine
Integrated Medicine Specialist, Kochi
Hi Scanning using the PET scan and certain blood tests can tell you if there is cancer in the body. But it depends on the type of cancer whether it is in any organ or in the blood Sorry to hear your dad and dads brother death. A detailed history both medical and diet history is required to tell more precisely. Also blood work is also needed. Eating clean with no processed foods, no dairy Plant based food, exercise,adequate vitamin d, proper sleep, no tobacco, no alcohol ,high fibre diet can prevent cancer.

Cancer is curable. You have to provide details of the organ which is having cancer. After confirmation and staging of cancer proper treatment can be planned. Primary treatment depends on site of origin and extent of disease.

What if I have a lump in breast and getting pain sometimes and feeling itching around breast. Is it a symptom of breast cancer or it may indicate that I may get breast cancer.

MS - General Surgery
Oncologist, Ludhiana
Lump, pain and itching around breast is more likely suggestive of fibroadenosis of breast. It is a benign condition. I suggest you to go for ultrasound of breast and fnac if any lesion in breast.

It is not proper for a cancer patient to eat someone else's left over food. You could however eat with him and share the same food cooked at home.

It could be increasing density of the breast tissue, etc. You need to consult with a surgeon for a checkup. He might advise you some investigations and medications.

Mr. lybrate-user. Your report is suggestive of BPH I.e. Is enlarged prostate. Residual urine amount is more which suggest immediate release of obstruction. But consult your urologist other options. Otherwise operation is only solution.

How stomach cancer starts in upper abdomen. Because I am feeling lumpy when observing with hands on my stomach.
It necessarily does not means that you are having cancer - it could be cyst/tumor. You better do a ct scan on whole abdomen to conclude further.
