Where are you BRCA 1 Gene?

BRCA1 is a gene that produces a protein that helps suppress the growth of tumors. Mutations or changes in this gene can increase the risk of developing certain types of cancer, particularly breast and ovarian cancer. The BRCA1 gene is located on chromosome 17 and is inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern, meaning that a person only needs to inherit one copy of the mutated gene from one parent to be at an increased risk of cancer.

Early detection of lung cancer.

Lung cancer is a serious and deadly disease that can affect anyone, regardless of their age or lifestyle. It is estimated that lung cancer is responsible for approximately 25% of all cancer-related deaths worldwide, making it the leading cause of cancer-related deaths globally. Despite advances in treatment options, the five-year survival rate for lung cancer is only around 20%, largely due to the fact that the disease is often not diagnosed until it has already spread to other parts of the body.

Early Detection is the Best.

Cancer is a life-threatening disease that occurs when the cells in our body start to grow abnormally and form a mass of tissue called a tumor. Cancer can affect any part of the body, and if not treated early, it can spread to other parts of the body and become difficult to treat. Therefore, it is essential to treat cancer early to increase the chances of survival and reduce the complications associated with cancer treatment.

The primary reason for treating cancer early is to prevent it from spreading to other parts of the body. When cancer spreads to other parts of the body, it is called metastasis, and it becomes much more difficult to treat. Continue reading “Early Detection is the Best.”

Physical self-care for cancer patients?

Coping with a cancer diagnosis can be one of the most stressful experiences of someone’s life and it is important to recognize that self-care during cancer is neither self-indulgent nor selfish. It’s about taking care of yourself (or anyone with cancer) no matter what stage they are at.
There’s absolutely no right way to cope and deal with cancer and no best self-care ideas. It’s about determining what’s best for you. It sometimes means cozying up on the couch and watching a movie, going for a walk, chatting with loved ones, or spending time by yourself. Continue reading “Physical self-care for cancer patients?”
