What is Cancer
Cancer is the generic term to describe a group of disorders caused by an abnormal, uncontrolled multiplication of cells. Which usually results in the destruction of neighbouring tissues. Gradually, these tissues and organs stop functioning and death may occur. The reasons for cells to start multiplying is unknown in most cases. They may have some inbuilt abnormality or may be some external influences.
There are many many kinds of cancer like skin cancer, lung cancer, stomach, oral cancer, blood, prostate etc. and the symptoms varies depends on the kind.
How to diagnose Cancer
In case blood is passed in stools or cough, the patient should see a doctor. For confirmation, a biopsy of the affected organ is done. In this procedure, a small part of the tissue is taken for laboratory testing to detect the presence of cancerous cells.In case of cancer of the lungs, liver, stomach or intestine, an X-ray or ultrasound of the area may be taken. CT scans of the organs may also be done for diagnosis. The diagnosis is always made keeping in mind the patient’s previous medical history
There have been a plethora of researches conducted in terms of treatment and the root cause of its occurrence. A common revelation of all the researches highlight the that there is a deep connection between the root cause of the disease and the traumatic incidents. Mostly, all types of cancer are occurred by emotional disorders. But it is often considered as a multi-factorial disease. A multi-factorial disease which requires healing or prevention with a holistic approach. Conventional medication and chemotherapy are the main modes of treatment. it should be accompanied with the right kind of edible consumption (diet and nutrition),Physical regimes, quality sleep. These are highly integral in the process of healing. One of the most important measure to tackle this disease is to understand and ascertain the emotional and mental stress. These are catastrophic in the treatment of any disease, likewise cancer as well.
The next stage after Treatment
A cancer survivor is no more a cancer patient. He has survived cancer. When his treatment is over then he is back to his normal life. He was affected by cancer it does not mean that he is a life long cancer patient. So he is a survivor. Like any other illness it is also cured after treatment. So stop being prejudiced. Stop taking everything connecting with cancer. It is natural to get sick with cold or fever. Take it like that. Change the perception. Thinking has a great effect. Let it be “I am and I will” or “I can and I did”
