Cancer is diagnosed each year in about 175,000 children ages 14 and under worldwide. Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease past infancy for U.S. children. However, thanks to better therapies, more than 80% of U.S. childhood cancer patients now become long-term survivors. Survival rates can vary depending on the type of cancer. About 420,000 childhood cancer survivors live in the U.S., with much more around the world (St. Jude Children 's Research Hospital) this shows that cancer is one major diagnosed disease found in children under the age of 15.
One woman dies of cervical cancer every 8 minutes in India. Following below the most recent statistics available for survival by the current staging system. Stage Relative 5-Year survival Rate 0 93% IA 93% IB 80% IIA 63% IIB 58% IIIA 35% IIIB 32% IVA 16% IVB 15% Why are some cancers diagnosed late? As we all know that late diagnosis ant late initiation of treatment lead to more chance of morbidity and mortality. In UK, around 25% of cancers are diagnosed through emergency admission to hospital and most of them have lower chances of survival compared to other patients.
Often times, fatal diseases don’t surface the minds of the average person. However, “approximately 38.5 percent of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer of any site at some point during their lifetime” (1), proving that it is far more prevalent than we think. So while cancer treatment may not seem relevant to a healthy person, it is still essential to be informed about options for medical care. One of the more common forms of is radiation therapy. In fact, approximately 50% of all cancer patients will go through this type of treatment (4).
A RARE CASE: AN ADVANCED STAGE HEPATOCELLULAR CARCİNOMA PATİENT PRESENTED WİTH MULTİPLE SPLENİC METASTASES SUMMARY: Hepatocellular carcinoma is the most common primary liver tumor and it is one of the most common cause of deaths in patients with cirhosis. İt’s histopathologic diagnosis is difficult because biopsy usually couldn’t perform due to risc of bleeding. Clinicians especially diagnose it with radiologic and clinical parameters of patient. Splenic metastases are rarely conditions. But when its present we should make an examination for finding primary tumor.
Bone cancer isn’t a very common cancer. It accounts for much less than one percent of all cancers.Around 2,300 cases of bone cancer are diagnosed each year. Bone cancer is a serious disease that has multiple different types and treatments. Bone cancer is an uncommon cancer that can begin in a bone or can spread, or metastasize, from another area of the body to the bone. Bone cancer can affect any bone in the body but it is more likely for the cancer to appear in the long bone that make up the arms and legs.
Worldwide, it is estimated that one boy in every 5,000 will be born with haemophilia A and one boy in every 30,000 will be born with haemophilia B. There is no cure for haemophilia. However, with treatment a person with the condition can usually enjoy a good quality of life. In recent decades genetically engineered clotting factor medications have been developed to prevent and treat prolonged bleeding. These medications are given as an injection, the timing of which depends on how severe the condition is.
Cancer is an uncontrollable disease within the body killing tons of people each day. Prostate cancer on the other hand is within the prostate gland. It is a small, walnut-sized structure making up a man’s reproductive system. Prostate cancer is mainly profound in men. Is there a real cure for this cancer that doesn’t result in death?
Women who have an affected first- degree relative have twice the risk of developing a cervical tumor compared to women who have a nonbiologic first degree relative with a cervical tumor. Genetic predisposition accounts for fewer than 1% of cervical cancers. Cervical cancer usually occur in midlife and is most frequently diagnosed in women between the ages of 35 and 44. It seldomly develops in women younger than 20. It is important for many older women understand that the risk of developing cervical cancer is still present as they age.
This specific type of cancer is one of the most common cancers in women and the second leading cause of deaths due to cancer. Approximately one out of every nine Caucasian women will be diagnosed with this dreadful form of cancer. Normally most women are
Cisplatin is one of the most widely used antineoplastic agents in the treatment of solid tumor and hematological malignancies that may cause acute or chronic organ toxicity. Accidental overdose of cisplatin may occur despite all precautions and no general accepted guidelines for the treatment of such cases are available and no specific antidote for cisplatin exists. Here we report a 1-year-old girl who received a massive cisplatin overdose of 500 mg/m2 as an accidental substitution for carboplatin. Although aggressive treatment was given, the patient died because of severe renal failure and cardiac arrest. Our experience remind us to evaluate, establish and implement the best possible and accurate control mechanisms on different levels for
Research found that people who use tanning machine before the age of 35 have an 87 percent chance of developing melanoma (par.18). Most melanoma cells make melanin, so the tumors are usually brown or black. Not every melanoma makes melanin so it can appear pink, tan, or even white (American cancer society, par.10). Melanoma form in other parts of the body such as the eyeball, mouth, private area, and but area. There is slight chance that it may never happen (par.13).
Multi-disciplinary teams are made up of a number of different specialists who work together to make decisions about the best way to proceed with your treatment. The prospect of a complete cure is good for cervical cancer diagnosed at an early stage; although the chances of a complete cure decrease the further, the cancer has spread. In cases where cervical cancer is not curable, it is often possible to slow its progression, prolong lifespan and relieve any associated symptoms, such as pain and vaginal
Epithelioid Hemangioendothelioma is a rare form of cancer that affects the blood vessels of an individual and has an unknown etiology. It is considered as a low-grade cancer because it grows and spreads slowly. However, it can become malignant. It typically starts in soft tissues like the liver or the lung, and can spread to nearby or distant organs. Epithelioid Hemangioendothelioma affects about 0.1 percent of the American population with an overall 5-year survival rate of 55% after a standard primary radical treatment.
In the US, cancer is the second major cause of death. Cancer is the uncontrolled division of somatic cells caused by defective cancer cells. Usually, when cells divide, they begin to form a layer. Normal cells will experience contact inhibition, where cells can cease to replicate once there is no more space for it to inhabit. However, cancer cells cannot control their division.
Melanoma, also known as malignant melanoma, is the deadliest form of skin cancer. According to the World Health Organization it is estimated that 132,000 people are diagnosed with the disease annually, and it is the cause of death for more than 37,000 people annually (Hodgetts, 2013). The cancerous growths begin to develop when DNA in skin cells is damaged, normally by excess exposure to ultraviolet radiation either from sunlight or tanning beds. This damage triggers mutations. This causes the skin cells to multiply rapidly and form malignant tumors.
