Cancer is such a disease that we get nervous when we hear the name but cancer is not incurable. If the disease is detected in time, it is possible to treat it. Yes, Bollywood actor Ramesh Sathe revealed that she is suffering from high grade cancer. Before that, actress Manisha Koirala and actor Irfan Khan had reported to be suffering from cancer. With these cases coming out, it is being emphasized that time is needed to get health check-ups from time to time at every stage of life. At the same time, it is also necessary to create awareness about the prevention of such problems.
About 2.5 million people are suffering from cancer in India and more than seven lakh new cases are recorded every year. In all types of cancer, men have mouth and lung cancer and women have uterus or allis and breast cancer. It is the cancer of almost 50 percent of all related deaths occurring in the country.
What is cancer:
President of Heart Care Foundation Dr.S P Agarwal said, the news of Ramesh Sathe being cancered only points to a fact that diagnosis and action are of great importance at the time. Cancer is a group of many related diseases that occur when a group of abnormal cells starts growing arbitrarily. In this way often they become tumors. Tumors are either normal or fatal.
There are four major types of cancer prevention for cancer: vaccination, screening, counseling (changes in lifestyle) and chemo protection. He said, screening involves identifying a heterogeneous, unhealthy condition or risk factor. Initial prevention is the effort to prevent disease from occurring, secondary prevention seeks to catch the disease and tertiary prevention is done in reducing the complications of the disease.
Dr. Agarwal said, if the cancer is detected early, then it can be treated at a very low cost. If people get screening as soon as the initial symptoms appear, then the fear of death decreases. Unfortunately, about two-thirds of cases of cancer are diagnosed in the last stage, thereby reducing the chance of treating patients and avoiding them.
Tips for Reducing the Risk of Cancer:
Dr.Agarwal has given some suggestions which can reduce the risk of cancer by adopting them.
- Danger can be reduced by focusing on symptoms and checking regularly.
- Quitting or reducing tobacco addiction is the most important step in cancer prevention.
- Fill the tap water properly as it can prevent potential cancer agents and chemicals that harm the hormones.
- Vaccination according to schedule and schedule, drinking plenty of water and other fluids helps in the process of flushing cancer agents in urine , which can help reduce the risk of bladder cancer.
The most important thing is to take a healthy diet and to practice regular exercise. Fruits and vegetables are rich in antioxidants, which can help prevent diseases.
