How Air Pollution Can Cause Cancer?

MD - Radiothrapy, MBBS
Oncologist, Pune
How Air Pollution Can Cause Cancer?

Cancer today is not as rare as it once was. Today, cancer affects the young and old alike. One of the reasons for this is the pollution in particular air and water pollution that we are exposed to on daily basis.
The air we breathe in today is a mixture of smoke, particulate matter and noxious gases that causes great harm to our bodies. Amongst these, particulate matter that is smaller than 2.5 millionths of a metre is the worst.

These particle matters are emitted into the air from car exhausts, industrial exhausts, coal fires, wood stoves etc. While the body’s natural defences help keep larger particle matter out of the system by sneezing or coughing it out, smaller particle matter enters the body easily. These then get trapped in the lungs and enter the bloodstream. Particle matter has in particular been linked to increasing number of lung cancer cases. Apart from lung cancer, coal tar particle matter has been linked to bladder cancer, soot to oesophageal cancer and benzene and other pesticides to leukaemia.

Radon is another source of air pollution that is emitted from the ground. In some cases, radon can also be emitted through the water. As this gas decays, it releases tiny particles that when inhaled bombard the lung cells with radiation that can cause radiation. Smoking can worsen this effect and increase a person’s risk of suffering from lung cancer. Both first-hand and second-hand smoking have also been linked to breast cancer. Apart from trying to reduce emissions to lower air pollution, it is also important to clean filets of air conditions, etc. regularly to lower indoor air pollution. Preventing the smoking of tobacco in public spaces can also help improve air quality.

All pollutants emitted by us eventually find their way into the water we drink. Even if you are not drinking contaminated water, merely, showering or swimming in contaminated water can make your body more vulnerable to the carcinogens in it. Common water pollutants include arsenic, hazardous waste, animal waste, radon, chemicals and asbestos. Drinking water with concentrated amounts of arsenic has been linked to cancer of the lungs, liver, kidney and bladder while the chlorine used to treat drinking water increases the risk of bladder and rectal cancer.

To reduce the risks of cancer caused by polluted water, it is essential to reduce disinfectant by products by keeping water treatment facilities updated and promote green chemistry and alternative assessments to reduce pollution as a whole. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Oncologist.

Hi, My baby who has benign tumor in left gluten and I want to know the reason behind the cause of this tumor. My husband has lipoma (benign) allover his body. Is it genetic disorder? Please advise. Await your response.

Lipomas do tend to run in families, so genetic factors can play a role in their development. Some genetic conditions can cause a person to have one or more lipomas, including: Gardner syndrome, a condition that causes benign tumors to form Adiposis dolorosa, a condition marked by the growth of lipomas Familial multiple lipomatosis, a hereditary condition that causes multiple lipomas to form Madelung disease, a rare condition marked by lipomas forming around the upper body Cowden syndrome, which is characterized by benign tumors, skin tags, and large head size Lipomas need no treatment unless they are associated with other symptoms.

What is the stage of cancer? Stage decides the treatment. Pain is the most common problem in stage 3 or 4. please remember Pain definitely can be controlled / treated at any stage of cancer. Pain relief needs dedicated pain management treatment usually offered by Pain specialist doctors. ACCN is proud to have one of the best pain specialist doctors of India. Pain management and cancer treatment goes side by side. Demand a pain free cancer treatment. You can further discuss it in detail with me on private chat. Stage 3 or 4 is difficult to treat completely.

The patient has what is called as severe trismus. You need to start physiotherapy for the same. There is a device called jaw stretching key which helps in mouth opening. There is a device called fibreoptic bronchoscope or laryngoscope which helps to examine the mouth in such cases. If the trismus is very severe he may need to undergo surgery for release of this trismus

Hi, It may be due to harmonal problem. But it is better to get an U/S scan of the breasts to rule out any Fibroids or cysts.
