Rest is very important in one’s life to provide some change to the body .Rest is needed so that the body finds a change from the monotonous routine and recharge itself and get ready for the next day to start working. According to the studies, a normal adult needs about 6-8 hours of sleep and the best time of sleep is from 10pm to 4 am.

Proper rest or sleep is precious so that the body tissues are healed up .Some person gets proper sleep whereas some feels disturbance in their sleep cycle and it’s most commonly found in the cancer patients .Sleep disturbance is normally observed due to the various issues which can be stated as follows:

Lung cancer looks so beautiful isn’t it!!!!!!

Lung cancer is very pathetic In reality and when diagnosed it’s really an issue of concern and as far as the studies concerned, lung cancer leads to losing of many lives when compared to other types that includes the breast cancer ,uterus cancer as they can be cured much easily by removal of the organ but this is dangerous .And according to research males are more prone to the lung canc3er as males smokers are  comparatively higher than female smokers.

Now let’s talk about the types of cancer. As people nowadays wants  more variety in each and everything then how come these diseases be of a single type ,They also comes in variety .therefore the variety of lung cancer includes two types and they are:

  1. Non-small cell lung cancer{img}
  2. Small cell lung cancer{img}

Mostly found the type of cancer in the citizens is non-small cell lung cancer and treatments vary according to the type of cancer and stage of cancer. The non-small cell cancer grows very slowly and is found to evolve in the bronchial region of the lungs and can travel to other parts of the body with time as the negativity is said to spread more easily to then positivity similarly the lung cancer also spreads to other parts .

Methods appointed to check Lung Cancer

  • CT Scan(Computed Tomography scan) {img}

It’s used for the detection of lung cancer in earlier stages and is the most effective method as it takes a cross sectional and more descriptive and detailed image of the lungs in which each and every area of the lungs can be seen. A doctor can refer to this to identify if you are suffering from cancer or not.

  • Biopsy {img}

In Biopsy, a small sample of the tissue of the lungs is taken for examination purpose and this sample can be taken by the usage of the tube placed down through your throat by using a needle to pass through it to be used further for determination of lung cancer.

Smoking the culprit of lung cancer

Smoking is the main culprit to make people fall prey to lung cancer .The two types of smoking both active and passive smoking are harmful and passive smoking is even more harmful than active and can cause cancer .While passive smoking if we inhale the cigarette smoke which is tobacco on the regular basis then the carcinogens present in cigarette leads to damage  in the cells and tissue of the lungs and initiates the development of the lung cancer. The high amount of black liquid can be seen from the lungs of the smokers when squeezed and the shape of smoker’s lungs also becomes irregular  over time.

Symptoms of lung cancer

Symptoms of the lung cancer are hardly seen and due to the late visibility of the symptoms lung cancer is identified at later stages making the chances of curing it less. But still few of the symptoms observed includes breathing problems, blood in a cough, sore throat, chest pain or unexplained weight loss. So whenever you or any of your known experiences these symptoms make sure to visit a physician so that if it’s a lung cancer than it could be detected at early stages and cured easily.

If any one of the friends or colleagues or a member of your family is diagnosed with any type of cancer then don’t panic, just take preventive measures and you are ready to enjoy your life as others enjoy. So do follow some steps so that cancer doesn’t lead to life-threatening disease and they can be as follows:

  • Know the exact cancer stage: Do get yourself clear that t what stage of cancer you are so that proper treatment is to be provided to you by the doctor according to your stage of cancer and related preventive measures could be taken.

All you need to do is clarify all your doubts so that it some little mistake in treatment or anything else doesn’t lead you towards some side-effects to your health .So ,it’s suggested by all the doctors to open up yourself to them and take proper suggestions and treatments.
  • Have a moral support friend or family member: While going for the regular check up or anywhere else to spend your quality time or while going to enjoy some vacations always have one friend or the family member who keep you motivated and do provide moral support to you .
  • Treatment to be taken needs to be decided: There are numerous doctors and the treatment option available for cancer but it’s very important for the one that which treatment one should use for curing it’s cancer as they too have one or the other side –effects .Now, a very nice treatment developed due to advancement in the medical sciences field is named as, Immunotherapy, which has no side effects and is widely used by the patients these days.
  • Positive attitude: A very important thing for the person suffering from any disease is hope and the positive attitude .As cancer is a life threatening disease but one needs to be always hopeful towards life that it would be cured. Many times, cancer has lead to lose of lives in families due to improper treatment or the loss of hope to live life but as its said “where There’s a will ,There is a way” ,Similarly if there is ray of hope in one’s mind then that treatment proves to be more effective for those rather than the ones with no hope. So do have some positive attitude towards life and always stay connected to the positive, optimistic people rather than the pessimistic ones.

Do you also consider Cancer as Man –Made Disease?

Let’s start with the basic point of view the majority of human have regarding cancer. Some consider cancer as a man –made disease whereas some consider it as the disease we are born with. So ,till now it has been a debate for a long time whether it’s man-made or not. Most of the organizations ,media ,citizens,doctors have a distinctive opinion over the same .But as far now we can find out the different point of views different organization and citizens hold with them.

According to the studies done by the scientist over Egyptian mummies till now , they haven’t found any evidence of cancer in the past which proves that in earlier times the existence was cancer was not there which can further lead us to conclude that the disease named cancer has evolved over the years indicating the modernization as a factor of the disease.

Moreover, it’s an issue to be paid heed towards as one of the recent survey  results indicates it as complete man made disease indicating various types of pollution and synthetic ripened fruits and vegetable and junk food as the major factors of cancer.

But UK Cancer Research department clearly declines the fact that cancer is 100 % man made the disease. According to the Cancer research Organization of UK, the modern lifestyle and industrialization have a great impact on our health and thus increase the chances of developing cancer but completing agreeing to the point and coming to the conclusion that cancer is 100%  man made disease would be wrong.

Till now it has been off the topic of debate among the various health organizations like WHO and other whether cancer is man-made or modern disease and it’s going to last over a long time in future also .But as the precaution is better than cure thus proper preventive measures should be taken by us to keep cancer at a distance from affecting our health .

At last ,I would like to conclude that don’t blindly follow the claims of others that cancer is man-made or modern but just try to prevent yourself from this bitter disease so that it doesn’t touch you and yours family life.So take preventive measure in all perspective of life to avoid these life-threatening disease.
