About Bladder cancers (26 Aug 2009)
Bladder cancer patients undergo these tests as many as four times a year. This test only requires a sample of urine on a test strip, making it a much less invasive way to monitor high-risk patients. Bladder cancer develops when a part of the bladder rapidly produces too many cells. These cells show out-of-control growth and can become cancer. Bladder cancer is likely to occur in men two to three times more than in women, and may occur in Caucasians twice as often as in African-Americans. Most occur after the age of 55, but some cases have been evident at younger ages.
Pancreas cancer (26 Aug 2009)
Pancreas cancer and precancerous cysts can be difficult to diagnose. Sometimes biopsies do not show cancer when cancer is actually present. Pancreas cancer is one of the most fatal among the cancers. The mortality rate is high due to the lack of tools for proper diagnosis and effective therapeutics. Pancreas cancer cells were transduced in vitro with HS-tk vector in presence of media or ascitic fluid and treated with GCV.
Types of liver cancers (26 Aug 2009)
Metastatic, or secondary, liver tumors are those that have spread to the liver from another cancer elsewhere in the body. Because one of the liver's main functions is to filter blood for the entire body, cancer cells from other parts of the body may become lodged in the liver and develop into tumors. Metastatic liver tumours are largely silent until the disease is well advanced. Patients with metastatic colorectal tumours frequently die of hepatic failure due to liver metastases.
Liver cancer (26 Aug 2009)
Liver cancer relates to (correlates with) the frequency of chronic hepatitis B virus infection. Studies in animals also have provided that hepatitis B virus can cause liver cancer. Liver cancer is mostly observed in men. Higher rate of liver cancer is seen in individuals above 40 years of age. Liver cancer is an abnormal growth of tissue in the liver. The liver is an organ on the upper right part of the abdomen (stomach), just below the right lung and behind the ribs.
Prostate cancer (25 Aug 2009)
Prostate cancer occurs when cells within the prostate start to multiply uncontrollably. In most cases, prostate cancer is a relatively slow-growing cancer, which means that it takes a number of years to become detectable. Prostate cancer is often very slow-growing and for many men with prostate cancer, the disease may never progress or cause any symptoms. In other words, many men with prostate cancer will never need any treatment. Prostate cancers are grouped according to tumor size, any spreading outside the prostate (and how far), and how different tumor cells are from normal tissue. This is called staging.

Prognosis (25 Aug 2009)
Prognosis is the forecast of the probable course and (or) outcome of a disease and has been described as an important but neglected branch of clinical science [1 -3 ]. Prognostic models and prediction rules for several musculoskeletal conditions are now beginning to emerge but how many patients actually want to be given information on the likely outcome of their condition. Prognosis statistics should be used as a reference, but not a final predictor of your specific case. Every person's situation is different and should be treated individually. Prognosis also profoundly affects decisions to initiate, withhold or terminate life support for critically ill newborns and adults, and it figures in the discussions about these decisions that doctors have with patients' families. Prognostication is critical when one must allocate scarce medical resources to those patients for whom they can do the most good.
Palliative care (25 Aug 2009)
Palliative care is treatment given by trained specialists to improve quality of life and reduce suffering of children with life-threatening or life-limiting medical conditions. This specialized care is provided along with usual medical treatments or when these treatments cannot improve or cure your child's condition. Palliative care is a team effort across all aspects of cancer patient care. Whether receiving care at home, at Regional Cancer Care or in hospital, there are standard tools being used for symptom screening and assessment. Palliative care is provided in a number of ways by specialist palliative care in-patient units (hospices). These units form the hub around which other services are developed.
Mouth cancer (25 Aug 2009)
Mouth cancer can be caused by smoking or now they claim alcohol, hen again you can get kidney disease from smoking and drinking! Let people do what they want and deal with problems that arise. Mouth cancers have a higher proportion of deaths per number of cases than breast cancer, cervical cancer or skin melanoma. In the UK, there has been a 19% increase in cases from 3,673 in 1995 to 4,405 in 2002 and 13,000 people in the UK are currently living in the shadow of this debilitating disease. Mouth cancer can occur in a number of different places including the gums, tongue, cheek, lips and other parts of the mouth. In the U.S., about 30,000 new mouth cancer cases occur annually.
Adenocarcinoma (25 Aug 2009)
Adenocarcinoma of the skull base may be approached directly by using the Endoscopic Endonasal Approach (EEA) . This approach allows surgeons to see the tumor well without making incisions to the face or skull. Adenocarcinoma of the prostate is malignant, however many types grow extremely slowly, and so are unlikely to spread before a man dies of other causes. Adenocarcinoma of the lung is treated according to the stage of the cancer. For early-stage lung cancers, surgery can often be performed with curative intent, often followed by chemotherapy which increases the chance of cure.
Melanoma (25 Aug 2009)
Melanoma is the most dangerous form of skin cancer, caused by sunburn during our early years. Each year in Australia, nearly 10,000 new cases are diagnosed, with 1,200 people dying from this disease every year. Melanoma also may occur within the eye in pigment cells that are similar to melanocytes in the skin. If it occurs on the inner surface of the eyelid, or on visible areas of the eye, melanoma may be diagnosed early. Melanomas in women are most common on the legs and in men they are most common on the trunk. These parts of the body are usually covered but now and then, they are exposed to intense bursts of UV radiation while sunbathing or on a sunbed.

Skin cancer (25 Aug 2009)
Skin cancer is almost always treatable if found early. A skin self exam should be conducted every month and a doctor should perform a yearly skin cancer examination. Skin cancer is often categorized as melanoma or non-melanoma. Melanoma is a cancer that begins in melanocytes. Skin cancer is a tumour or growth that grows in the skin cells. There are two main types of skin cancer, melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC).
Breast cancer (25 Aug 2009)
Breast cancer is the most common cancer and most common cause of cancer deaths among females in Australia. This cancer mostly affects women after the age of 40. Breast cancer is a common disease. Each year, approximately 200,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with breast cancer, and one in nine American women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. Breast cancer is complex. There are different stages of breast cancer and different types - invasive or non-invasive, hormone receptor positive or negative.
Cancer symptoms (25 Aug 2009)
Skin cancer can be found just about anywhere on the body, but is most often spotted on sun exposed areas — the scalp, neck, face, lips, ears, arms, hands, and legs. It can also show up in strange places, like in between your toes, underneath your nails, and even around your genitals. Skin cancers may bleed and look like sores that do not heal. A long-lasting sore in the mouth could be an oral cancer and should be dealt with right away, especially in people who smoke, chew tobacco, or often drink alcohol.
Symptoms for different cancers (25 Aug 2009)
Breast cancer treatment depends upon many factors, including thee type of cancer and the extent to which it has spread. Treatment options for breast cancer may involve surgery (removal of the cancer alone or, in some cases, mastectomy ), radiation therapy , hormonal therapy, and/or chemotherapy . Breast cancer awareness includes noticing changes to the nipple. One woman with inflammatory breast cancer experienced some pain but became aware of a problem when she noticed that her nipple was inverted. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, with fifty percent of cases being diagnosed well into a woman's fifties. Subsequently, doctors and researchers recommend a lifetime of screenings that can help identify the early stages.
Lung cancer (25 Aug 2009)
Lung cancer occurs when lung tissue develops cancerous growths. Primary lung cancer is cancer that originates in the lung tissue. Lung cancer develops if the cells of your lungs grow out of control. This creates a lump (tumour) which can either be malignant (cancerous) or benign (not cancerous). Lung cancer often is diagnosed at a later stage when it's not possible to remove the tumor surgically. When there is significant tumor spread, chemotherapy may be recommended to slow down cancer growth even if it cannot provide a cure.

Ovarian cancer (25 Aug 2009)
Ovarian cancer affects mainly perimenopausal and postmenopausal women. Nulliparity, delayed childbearing, early menarche, and delayed menopause increase risk. Ovarian cancer cells can produce this tumor marker. CA-125 is not always present in women with ovarian cancer, though it may be present in women who have benign ovarian conditions. Ovarian cancer affects more than 25,000 American women each year and is linked to roughly 14,000 deaths in the US annually. It is currently treated with surgery to remove the tumor followed by chemotherapy.
Chest pain (25 Aug 2009)
Chest pain is the most common symptom of coronary heart disease (CHD). The effective assessment and management of patients with chest pain is central to any strategy to reduce the burden of coronary disease. Chest pain is a common symptom that is caused by many different conditions. Some causes require prompt medical attention, such as angina, heart attack , or tearing of the aorta. Chest pain is a very common complaint. Many patients are well aware that it is a warning of potential life-threatening disorders and seek evaluation for minimal symptoms.
Foot pain (25 Aug 2009)
Foot pain is very common. About 75% of people in the United States have foot pain at some time in their lives. Foot pain is very common; about 70% of people will suffer foot pain at some time in their lives. With every step we take, a force of 2-3 times our body weight is placed on our feet. Foot pain is not normal and should not be ignored; problems can affect the functioning of other parts of the body, including the hips, knees, and back. These are foot-related problems that may be related to biomechanical issues.
Cancer (25 Aug 2009)
Cancer is the Latin word for crab. The ancients used the word to mean a malignancy, doubtless because of the crab-like tenacity a malignant tumor sometimes seems to show in grasping the tissues it invades. Cancer grows out of normal cells in the body. Normal cells multiply when the body needs them, and die when the body doesn't need them. Cancer treatment includes chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. If you're considering complementary treatments for cancer, discuss this with your doctor as they may interact with other cancer treatment.
Chronic pain (25 Aug 2009)
Chronic back pain has the ability to immobilize people with pains shooting through lower back, numbing one or both legs and making life very difficult.
