Pancreatic Cancer - Everything About It!

Pancreatic Cancer - Everything About It!

The pancreas is the organ behind the lower part of the stomach. Its main role in your body is to produce enzymes and hormones to control digestion and blood glucose level. Pancreatic cancer occurs when a mass of abnormal cells grow, divide and spread to form a tumour.

Types of pancreatic cancer-

• Exocrine - The cancer forms in the ducts of the pancreas; this is the most common form.
Endocrine - These are the rare type. It is benign which means the tumours do not spread to other locations of the body.

Symptoms to watch out for-

• Pain in the back
Loss of appetite
• Loss of weight
Nausea or fatigue
Jaundice (yellowing of the skin, eyes or both)
• Changes in stool
• Swelling of the pancreas
• Fluid in the abdomen
• Blood clot

Risk factors for pancreatic cancer-

• Genetic - It can happen if you have an inherited gene associated with pancreatic cancer. It can be inherited from your parents or any first-degree relatives. Pancreatic cancer is more likely if two or more of your first-degree relatives are inflicted and/or if they got it before age of 50.
• Environment - It can happen due to alteration of your genes because of harmful agents like tobacco
• Other prior health issues - Obese and diabetic patients have a higher chance of acquiring pancreatic cancer

Treatment of the disease-

If you have been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, your doctor will most likely choose one of the following treatment procedures-

Surgery - The most common type of surgery for this condition is the Whipple surgery. In this procedure, the wider part of the pancreas located next to the duodenum is removed. The surgeon may also remove the duodenum, the gallbladder, and a portion of your stomach. Afterwards, he/she will reconnect the pancreas, the bile duct, and the remaining healthy portion of the small intestine.

Chemotherapy - Chemotherapy is recommended after surgery in case cancer has spread to the other parts/organs of your body. Standardized chemotherapy treatment uses a single or a combination of anti-cancer drugs to prevent cancer from recurring. These are administered either in your bloodstream or is targeted to particular cancer sites.

• Radiation - X-ray beams are directed to destroy the cancer cells and reduce large tumours before performing surgery so that they can easily be removed. It also helps reduce the symptoms of pancreatic cancer.

Why is it hard to treat?

Most of the cases are diagnosed at later stages. Surgery is not a valid option then so it is important to identify the symptoms earlier.

A dense tissue layer called the stroma surrounds the pancreas. It is difficult to reach the pancreas through this tissue so treatments are difficult.

Some treatments that work out for other cancers may not work out for this. There are no targeted drugs to treat pancreatic cancer.

Prevention:

• Maintain a healthy diet - Consumption of red meat increases the chances of pancreatic cancer. Fresh vegetables and fruits may reduce the chances of cancer.
Maintain a healthy weight - Obesity is a known cause of cancer. If you are overweight, try to lose some weight steadily through natural means.
Do not smoke - Stop smoking. Get help from your friends, family and doctor to control your nicotine habits.

Pancreatic cancer has a poor prognosis since it is difficult to identify the signs initially. Patients generally do not recover fully. Moreover, cancer treatments can be very strenuous and emotionally draining, so the best way to fight cancer is to prevent it from the very beginning.

Blood Cancer - How To Avert It?

Blood Cancer - How To Avert It?

Science has advanced a lot through the ages. Doctors have also succeeded in curing many diseases at this time. But even with one of the most advanced technologies, they still haven’t found a foolproof way to cure cancer. Even out of the many types of cancer, blood cancer is the worst among them. You surely wouldn’t want to get into such a situation. Would you? The best way out of blood cancer is never to get one. To prevent it you can take care of a few things:

  1. Maintaining proper body weight: Although you can’t do much to prevent cancer, you must ensure that you maintain healthy body weight. This implied that your BMI should be normal (healthy weight) so that you have a good chance of fighting it. It has been said by many leading institutions worldwide as the best way to prevent cancer. One can maintain proper body weight by making sure they exercise every day for at least 30 minutes and also maintain a well-balanced diet. This would help you maintain healthy body weight.
  2. Reduction in the consumption of calorie-dense food: Not only because calorie dense foods like cold drinks increase your weight, but the sugar also mixes with your blood and thus is difficult to transport through the body. Thus they add a lot of impurities to the body and must be avoided for the best interests in your effort to fight cancer. The worst fact about calorie dense foods is that you can easily consume 1000 – 2000 calories long before you can satisfy your hunger. Thus, it also defeats your first preventive measure to avoid cancer.
  3. Staying away from harmful chemicals like pesticides: You might not know it and be happily spraying pest control sprays everywhere without a proper mask thinking you will make the pests go away. What you don’t know is that those pesticides are harmful to your blood and one should avoid them. To increase the probability of winning against blood cancer, it’s vital to keep this in mind.
  4. Consulting a doctor from time to time: One should always go and visit a medical practitioner from time to time so that they can maintain proper health. Furthermore, if you see symptoms like fever, frequent infections, night sweating, swollen liver with abdomen pain, enlarged lymph nodes (they are usually painless), then be sure to go to a medical practitioner. Always remember that prevention is better than cure. Thus one should try to prevent blood cancer not cure it.

ब्लड कैंसर के लक्षण - Blood Cancer Ke Lakshan!

ब्लड कैंसर के लक्षण - Blood Cancer Ke Lakshan!

ब्लड कैंसर, रक्त कोशिकाओं में होने वाले कैंसर को कहा जाता है. ब्लड कैंसर की बीमारी में, अस्थि मज्जा बहुतायत मात्रा में असामान्य सफेद रक्त कोशिकाओं को बनाने लगती है, जिन्हें ब्लड कैंसर कोशिकाएं कहा जाता है. ये सफ़ेद रक्त कोशिकाएं सामान्य श्वेत रक्त कोशिकाओं के भाँति काम नहीं करती हैं. ये सामान्य कोशिकाओं की तुलना में तेज़ी से बढ़ती हैं, उनका विकास रुकता नहीं है और सामान्य कोशिकाओं के लिए हानिकारक साबित होता है. आइए इस लेख के जरिए हम ब्लड कैंसर के विभिन्न लक्षणों के बारे में जानें ताकि लोग समय रहते इसकी पहचान करके इसका इलाज करा सकें.

ब्लड कैंसर के लक्षण-

सभी प्रकार के ब्लड कैंसर में, असामान्य सफेद कोशिकाओं की उपस्थिति की तुलना में सामान्य रक्त कोशिकाओं की कमी के कारण ही अधिक लक्षण नज़र आते है. आइए इसके विभिन्न लक्षणों पर एक नजर डालें -
* गले में या हाथ के नीचे या आपकी कमर में कोई नयी गांठ या किसी ग्रंथि में सूजन का होना
* नाक, मसूड़ों या मलाशय से लगातार रक्तस्त्राव होना. लगातार नील पड़ना या मासिक धर्म के दौरान भारी
* ब्लीडिंग होना
* बुखार रहना
* रात को सोते समय पसीना आना
* हड्डियों के भीतर दर्द रहना
* अस्पष्टीकृत भूख न लगना या/और साथ ही वज़न का लगातार कम होना
* बिना किसी बिना किसी कारणवश अत्याधिक थकान महसूस करना
* पेट के बाईं ओर सूजन बनना और सूजन के साथ साथ दर्द का भी अनुभव होना

ब्लड कैंसर के कारण-
विशेषज्ञों को पूर्ण रूप से जानकारी नहीं है कि ब्लड कैंसर का क्या कारण है. कुछ चीजें ब्लड कैंसर के जोखिम को बढ़ा सकती हैं, जैसे कि बड़ी मात्रा में विकिररेडिएशन या कुछ केमिकल जैसे कि बेंजीन के काॅंटैक्ट में रहना. ब्लड कैंसर को होने से रोका नहीं जा सकता, लेकिन यह संभव हो सकता है कि आपके आस-पास कुछ चीजें इसके ग्रोथ को ट्रिगर कर सकती हैं. उदाहरण के लिए, यदि आप स्मोकिंग करते हैं, तो आपको इसका जोखिम अधिक है. ब्लड कैंसर के लिए पारिवारिक इतिहास एक अन्य जोखिम कारक है. उदाहरण के लिए, यदि एक जैसे दिखने वाले जुड़वां में से कोई भी एक किसी भी प्रकार के ब्लड कैंसर से ग्रस्त है तो 20% सम्भावना है की दुसरे जुड़वाँ को भी एक वर्ष के अंदर कैंसर होगा.

ब्लड कैंसर से बचाव-
अधिकांश प्रकार के ब्लड कैंसर को रोकने के लिए कोई ज्ञात तरीका नहीं है. कुछ प्रकार के ल्युकेमिआ के होने के जोखिम को रेडिएशन की हाई डोज़, केमिकल बेंजीन, स्मोकिंग और अन्य टाबोको का उपयोग न करने या इनके संपर्क में न रहने से रोका जा सकता है.

ब्लड कैंसर के स्टेज-
ब्लड कैंसर का निदान होने के बाद उसकी स्टेजिंग की जाती है. एक्यूट माइलोजीनस ब्लड कैंसर (AML) और एक्यूट लिम्फोसाइटिक ब्लड कैंसर (ALL) की स्टेजिंग सेल्स के प्रकार और कैंसर सेल्स माइक्रोस्कोप के नीचे कैसी दिखती हैं इस आधार पर की जाती है. निदान के समय WBC गणना के आधार पर एक्यूट लिम्फोसाइटिक ब्लड कैंसर (ALL) और क्रोनिक लिम्फोसाइटैटिक ब्लड कैंसर (CLL) की स्टेजिंग की जाती है. ब्लड और बॉन मेरो में अपरिपक्व वाइट ब्लड सेल्स या मायलोब्लास्ट की उपस्थिति के आधार पर एक्यूट माइलोजीनस ब्लड कैंसर (AML) और क्रोनिक माइलोजीनस ब्लड कैंसर (CML) की स्टेजिंग की जाती है.
ब्लड कैंसर स्टेजिंग और रोग का निदान करने वाले कारक:

  • वाइट ब्लड सेल्स या प्लेटलेट काउंट
  • ऐज
  • पूर्व ब्लड डिसऑर्डर का इतिहास
  • क्रोमोसोम म्यूटेशन या असामान्यताएं
  • हड्डियों को किसी प्रकार का नुकसान
  • लीवर या प्लीहा में वृद्धि
