Which type cancer you are in danger to suffer in your age?
The women present more new cases of cancer each year from
the men. However, the men present the bigger mortality.
The American Anticancer Company appreciates that from the
550.000 Americans that will leave from life from cancer this year, roughly 170.000
they will leave from life exajtj'as the use of tobacco and 19.000 will leave from life from
causes that are related with the excessive consumption alkoo'l.
Moreover, roughly the one third of stop livings from cancer they are
related with the bad diet, the obesity, the lack of activities and
other factors of way of life and they can be anticipated. A
healthy way of life decreases the danger of appearance of cancer
considerably. The researches show that the 20% of all cancers
are only caused mainly by genetic factors.
The most common cancers in the women (apart from the cancer of
skin) are in the breast, in the lungs and in ko'lon. The line
changes when examines no one the stop livings from cancer. In the
women, the cancer of lung is the mainer cause of stop living, followed from
the cancer of breast and in ko'lon. Even if most persons fear
the cancer, minimal are those that realise that the danger of
appearance of cancer in a person changes with each decade of his life.
20. Most women at the age the 20-30 think mainly their
karje'ra and search of companion. The cancer does not
constitute usually their first concern. However, the
cancer of neck of uterus constitutes important danger in this
age. A lot of women know for the test Pap, knownest test
for the cancer of neck of uterus. The test this can detect
changes in the cells of neck of uterus and be followed the
suitable treatment front is developed the cancer. The
American Anticancer Company recommends each year test Pap for
this cancer, when the women become romance ually active or in the
age the 18 (that also if becomes first).
The danger for cancer is different for the women with each
decade of life
The cancer of neck of uterus is caused by a pollution by the
human virus papillomavirus (HPV). This usual virus passes
from person in person via romance . The mainer factor of danger
for the type of this cancer they are the a lot of fun companions,
or romance with men that had a lot of fun companions. ¢lloj
factors of danger is the smoking, the bad socio-economic situation,
the not Caucasian race and the pollution with virus HIV. The
cancer of neck of uterus affects more the women of age from
the 20 until 40. Even if the danger is decreased kacw's the
women grow, even the bigger women need the test Pap. Molono'tj
the 25% of cases of all cancers of neck of uterus are only
presented in women of age of 60 years or bigger, a 40% stop livings
it is observed in this population. The cancer that is
limited only in the neck, is faced locally with refrigeration,
beams laser or abstraction of neck. Seldom it becomes
ysterektomi'. The cancer of neck of uterus that is expanded
outside by the uterus and the neck is often very aggressive
and it is not faced easily. This underlines the importance
and the effectiveness of prevention.
30. Age from 30-40 presents two main dangers of cancer - a
continuous danger for cancer of neck of uterus and a danger
for lymphoma, a common malignant illness from the age 30-50.
The lymphoma is presented formally with the form of djogkwme'nwn
lymph glands, without no pain. Symptoms are the lassitude,
the loss of weight and tenths of fever. A lot of factors
can make the lymph glands djogkwcoy'n and ana'mesa their, pollutions,
irritations and inflamations. However, in all these cases
the lymph glands are rather soft in the touch and in little
time interval come back in their physiologic situation. In
the lymphoma they remain djogkwme'noj and do not ache. Unfortunately,
it cannot become diagnosis of this illness with examination
of blood. Good it is, visits no one his doctor in case
where the inflation of lymph glands lasts for above two weeks.
Exist two types of lymphoma: the illness of Ho'tzkjn
and the lymphomas not Ho'tzkjn. However, the probabilities
of treatment are good and in the two cases. As in most
cancers, as long as more in time become the diagnosis of illness
and her confrontation, so much more are the probabilities of
survival. As means of treatment are used radiation and
chemotherapy. However exist certain aggressive lymphomas,
in which it is difficult becomes diagnosis.
40. Even if the lymphoma constitutes danger at the duration
of this period, this is the decade in order to begins the examination
for cancer of breast. The women fear the cancer of breast
more from each other cancer (still more a lot and from the
cardiopathies, the yp' number a "murderer of " women. In
the USA from the expected 647.000 new cases of cancer that
will be diagnosed in women this year, the 203.000 they concern
cancer of breast.
The cancer of breast usually is presented as a hard volume,
without pain, in the breast. The most common locality
is in the on exterior quadrant of breast. The volume
in the breast is doubled almost each three months. If
it is realised some suspect volume, usually becomes mammography
and later biopsy. If the result shows cancer, it needs
chirurgical intervention. Depending on the stage and
the place of cancer, the women are submitted or in mastectomy
or in radiation. With the chirurgical intervention are
removed the lymph glands under mpra'tso in order to is checked
by any chance spread of illness. The forecast becomes
front expands the cancer.
The mammographies are recommended by the American Anticancer
Company for all the women in the age of 40 years. The
women with his powerful familial background of cancer breast,
will be supposed to begin the examination in smaller age. The
mammographies it has been proved that they decrease the mortality
from cancer of breast afterwards the age of 50 years. In
this age, the breast is tighter and the mammography can locate
very small volumes. The elements for women from 40-50
years, are very sygkehyme'na. At the duration of this
decade the breast is tighter and the mammography is complicated
more it detects small volumes. Study showed that reduction
of mortality with mammography in this age does not exist. The
women in this age will be supposed to make mammography each
two years, aytoexe'tasi of each month and professional examination
each year. It is interest we observe that minimal are
those that know that roughly 1% of his cancers breast is observed
in men. This illness is formally very aggressive in the
men and it causes bigger rates of mortality from as long as
in the women.
50. In this age is observed the bigger danger for the three
more usual cancers in the women. The women will be supposed
to make mammography each year at the duration of this all decade. Moreover,
the cancers in the ko'lon and in lung become more frequent
in this age.
Above the 95% of all cancers of lung they are presented in
nyn or in former smokers. Unfortunately, the cancer of
lung does not present symptoms only that when they are very
slow. This happens because in the pneymonjkoy's webs
do not exist receptors of pain. Only when the volume
grows and reaches in the bronchuses, then are influenced the
nervous fibres and the individual present symptoms. The
most usual symptoms are loss of weight, lassitude and cough
with blood. The cancer of lung can fast expand in the
bones, in the lymph glands, in the liver and in the brain. The
diagnosis becomes usually with a simple radiograph of thorax.
If the illness is limited, it can become abstraction of chirurgically
lobe of lung. Otherwise, are used radiation and chemotherapy. The
forecast is difficult because they do not exist obvious symptoms. The
rates of five-year survival are only 15%. Even if does not
exist examination for the cancer of lung, becomes researches
on a appliance that might detect in time volumes in the lung. However,
the better prevention can be achieved only with smoke no one.
They exist above 105,000 new cases of cancer in ko'lon in the
USA each year. In the 20 individuals it presents this
illness at the duration of his life. A diet rich in greases
and red meat and low in plant fibres is related with bigger
danger. Moreover, each familial background of cancer
in the ko'lon, increases danger of appearance of this illness.
The cancer of this press is created from poly'poda in a ko'lon,
good of volume in form of mushroom that is developed in the
intestine. Even if exist a lot of types poly'poda, this
cancer is created by one only type poly'poda, that is named
lahnw'des adenoma. No other poly'podas is not cancer-causing. The
examination, at the age of 40 years for individuals of high
danger, includes the use flexible sjgmoejdosko'pjoy that it
examines ko'lon. This should become each five years for
the localisation of shaping poly'poda. A other test is
the annual examination for the localisation of blood in the
excrements. However, the test this presupposes all the
cancers in ko'lon ajmorragoy'n, thing that unfortunately does
not correspond actually.
The symptoms of this cancer can be from nully as bleeding of
intestine, obstruction and loss of weight. This cancer
expands usually in the lymph glands and in the liver. The
treatment becomes with chirurgical intervention for the abstraction
of primary cancer and volumes in the lymph glands. Is
used also the chemotherapy for the confrontation of illness
that still has not expanded a lot. This cancer, if it
is diagnosed in time, is curable in the 95% of cases, while
in his last stages it is faced very with difficulty (least
from 5% they survive in the five years).
60. The seventh decade of life continues presenting important
danger of appearance of cancer in ko'lon, in the breast and
in the lung and it will be supposed become regular controls
for their diagnosis. But at the same time with this three
main types of cancer, the cancer of ovaries presents important
danger in this decade.
The cancer of ovaries is the fifth more common cause of stop living
in the women. The probability of treatment is important
if the diagnosis becomes in time. The cancers that are
located and faced front they are expanded outside by the ovaries
present a rate of survival at 75% in the five years. Unfortunately,
only the 25% of cancers of this type are detected early, because
the illness does not present symptoms until it is expanded
in other bodies, But this symptoms they can be also owed in
other reasons and no from cancer of ovaries. When exists
suspicion for this illness, becomes examination with ultrasounds. However,
the diagnosis can become rightly only with biopsy.
One and the convenient diagnosis and the treatment increases
the rates of survival of this cancer, would be a ideal illness
for examination. Unfortunately, until today, it has not
been found no effective test. Does not exist known cause
for the cancer of ovaries. Have been located certain
factors of danger, ana'mesa in which the big age, the long-lasting
use of medicament s for the fertility without pregnancy, familial
background of cancer of ovaries and increased number of monthly
circles (precocious menstruation, delayed menopause). Factors
that can decrease the danger for the good of this cancer include
the pregnancy, cilasmo', ysterektomi' and herbs for the control
Even if he is not very usual, the American Anticancer Company
appreciates that 39.000 women will be offended by cancer of
wall of uterus (intra-uterine cancer) in in the year. Factors
of danger for the good of this cancer are the obesity, or not
fertilities, the diabetes, the menstruation before the age
of 12 years, the menopause afterwards the 52, the treatment
with tamoxifen ( medicament for the cancer of breast), certain
goods of supplements of estrogens (particular estrogens without
progesterone). The main symptoms of cancer of wall of
uterus are anexi'gites, erratic vaginal bleedings that do not
stop. The diagnosis is easy and becomes with intra-uterine
biopsy. The treatment becomes or with radiation, or with
ysterektomi'. The forecast is good, is enough the cancer
it has not been expanded outside by the uterus.
70. Kacw's the women reach this age, the danger of appearance
of cancer reaches in his climax. The cancers in the breast,
in the ko'lon and in lung continue being important dangers. The
doctor will be supposed to examine this women in annual base.
Even if it exists types enough danger for cancer in order to
worries no one, exist certain relatively infrequent cancers
that become more usual this decade. In this team are
included cancers of urinary bladder, neck, oesophagus, kidneys
and pancreas. Most of this dangers could decrease themselves
if somebody it does not smoke.
The leukaemia is the cancer of white corpuscles of blood and
is usually presented in the last decades of life. The
white corpuscles usually fight the infections. Exist
two types of leukaemia, acute and hro'nja. And in the
two types exists a increase of immature white corpuscles. Even
if exists big number of white corpuscles, this immature cells
have limited faculty in the confrontation of infections. In
the acute leukaemia, all the white corpuscles are immature
and not functional and thus are increased the danger of infections. The
leukaemia is hro'nja characterized by mature and immature white
corpuscles. The mature white corpuscles decrease the
danger of appearance of infections and thus the individual
with chronic leukaemia can live a lot of years.
The examination for this illness can be realised with complete
examination of blood, that becomes usually each year. The
symptoms can be abdominal pains from a djogkwme'no spleen,
lassitude, inflation of lymph glands and loss of weight. The
diagnosis becomes with biopsy from the marrow of bones. The
treatment becomes with chemotherapy, followed from transplantation
of marrow of bones.
The cancer of gulf is presented when the woman covers the decade
from 70-80. Is infrequent illness, with only 2.000 incidents
each year and the stop livings that it causes they are minimal.
Your own danger
Even if will exist important improvements in the diagnosis
and in the treatment of most from this horrible illnesses,
the cancer will continue constituting a plague and the twentieth
first century. The individual choices play very important
role. A healthy way of life decreases or eliminates the
danger for almost each form of cancer. The preventive
examinations can anticipate the cancer in his initial stages,
where in big percentage he is curable.
The danger for cancer is different for each decade of life. It
is very important occupies each one us how the danger changes
with the time, will be supposed take into consideration his
the familial background, the personal habits and the dangers
that can involve his profession. The American Anticancer
Company recommends preventive controls for the individuals
that present usual rates of danger. The advice of expert
is very important for the confrontation of this dangerous illness.
