Bone Cancer - 7 Warning Signs
Bone Cancer - 7 Warning Signs The following is a general list of the most prominent bone cancer warning signs, covering several different bone cancer types. 1. Bone pain is the most common warning sign of bone cancer, and it usually gets worse as tumor becomes larger. You may experience a dull or deep ache in a bone or bone region like back, pelvis, legs, ribs, arms. This discomfort may occur only at night in the early stages. As time goes by, the pain may become more persistent. 2. Swelling is common in area where you feel the pain. A lump or mass may be appear. 3. Fractures become more common, especially where the pain or swelling occurs, as cancerous cells weaken bone strength and durability. 4. Decreased mobility is likely if the tumor is located near a joint, making normal bending or movements difficult or painful. 5. Unintended weight loss is a typical symptom of many forms of cancer 6. Fatigue that accompanies bone pain may be another warning sign. 7. Difficulty breathing is likely if the cancer has spread to other organs. As previously stated, there are several types of bone cancer. A primary bone tumor, known as a sarcoma, begins in the bone the bone itself. Other types spread to the bones from elsewhere in the body. Another type, known as multiple myeloma, starts in the blood forming cells of the bone marrow.

Radiation Exposure ,Radiation safety- Everything You Need To Know - Dr. Nabil Ebraheim
Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video demonstrates how radiation affects the body, the different types of radiology procedures, and safety recommendations. X-rays ionize human tissue and deposit energy that can cause harmful changes within the body (break the DNA chain). There is a cancer risk from X-rays. The dose of radiation is cumulative. X-rays are considered for carcinogen list. The government is attempting to avoid the use of unnecessary CT scans and x-rays to avoid unnecessary exposure to radiation. This highlights the cancer risk. Doctors need to pay close attention to the risks involved with the use of x-rays. The cancer risk associated with radiation exposure is documented in cases of atomic bomb survivors. The risk for medical uses is controversial and usually played down by physicians. Radiation at a high level is carcinogenic. The level of radiation from x-ray exposure is low. The effects of low-level radiation is not known. What is the safe radiation level? The safe level is not known. It is known that CT scans, fluoroscopy, mammography and x-rays expose the public to high levels of radiation especially in young females. The risk of exposure should balance the medical benefit. Optimize radiation doses by exposing the patient only to enough radiation to get a clear image. There is a growing concern about the risk associated with giving patient large doses of radiation. The use of CT scans has increased recently in adults and children possibly exposing the patient to an unnecessarily high dose of radiation. CT scan is the method often used to diagnose cancer, diseases fractures and it exposes the patient to a much larger does of radiation than x-rays. Radiation from CT scan of the pelvis equals the same amount as 100 chest x-rays. Children are ten times more sensitive to radiation than adults. 3-4 million children receive CT scans and about 1,500 of them will develop cancer two decades later. Children should not be given an adult dose of radiation. Radiation dose limits: CT scan of the pelvis has the highest level of exposure to the skin, marrow and gonads. Use mini fluoroscopy C-arm whenever possible. Fluoroscopy emits a lot of radiation. The closer the extremity is to the radiation source, the higher the dose of radiation the patient receives. When the distance from the beam increases, the dose of radiation is less. Attempt to decrease exposure time. Radiation intensity follows the inverse square law. It is all about distance. If the intensity of radiation at 1 meter from the source is 100 mR/hr then the intensity of radiation at 2 meters from the source is ¼ or 25 mR/hr in same unit area. At 3 meters from the source, the intensity of radiation is 1/9 the original or 11.1 mR/hr. Units of radiation (radiation nomenclature) •Roentgen: unit of radiation exposure in air. •Rad: energy absorbed per gram of tissue. •Rem: biological effect of a rad. There is less exposure to the physician when imaging a smaller body part. Larger body parts create an increased exposure to the physician when imaging a patient with C-arm. Do not be in the direct path of the radiation beam. Protection: •Monitoring: a dosimeter badge only records how much radiation you have received. It does not protect you from exposure to radiation. •Shielding: lead gowns and aprons work to stop exposure to fluoroscopy radiation. Lead aprons attenuate scattered radiation by about 95%. •Position Rapidly dividing cells are most sensitive to radiation exposure: sperms, lymphocytes, small intestine, and stomach. Radiation damage seldom appears at the time of radiation. The first effects of radiation damage is usually seen as a drop in the white blood cell count. The first external sign of damage is seen as a skin burn. Studies suggest that people who use fluoroscopy extensively have a higher rate of cataracts. Early effects or radiation exposure: •Death •Hematological depression •Chromosome aberration •Skin erythema •Epilation. Team exposure to radiation •Direct beam 4,000 mrem/min •Surgeon (1 ft.): 20 mrem/min whole body •First assist (2 ft.): 6 mrem/min whole body •No exposure (5 ft.) at scrub or anesthesiologist. •6 feet is safe.

What is a Bone Scan?
The purpose of a bone scan is to help your doctor evaluate how your bones are working. It provides information to help diagnose and treat your condition. The scan can show injury to the bones, the effects of disease such as cancer or infection, or any improvement or worsening in a bone condition after any treatments. There is no special preparation for this test. You may eat and take your medicines as you normally do. If you are (or think you might be) pregnant or breast feeding please inform your health care team. There are no restrictions after your bone scan. Your doctor will receive the bone scan images and test results. The findings will be shared with your at your next appointment.

Radiation Therapy Sarcoma
Radiation therapy (RT) for soft tissue Ewing Sarcoma located over right cheekbone. Two times per day for three and a half weeks made it 36 times all together and a total dose of radiation 54Gy. I had nine months of chemo treatments before this. This particular session was one of the last ones. RT for mouth area caused quite heavy side effects and I was forced to keep an eight day break in treatments because of heavy damage in mouth mucous. It was cured during eight days in hospital while taking opioids intravascularly to relief pain. The mask was super tight and kept my head in place during the sessions. I had to look up all the time to avoid the beam damaging my eye. It remains to be seen if it worked or not. Also constant nose bleeding brought its own dimension in breathing under the mask. 1:16 linac stays in steady position for some time. Don't know the reason for it. 3:07 linac moves to the first treatment position and you can hear the actual beam sound at 3:23. All in all there's six treatment positions. Brought my own music since they only had some depressing stuff by the house ;)

Spinal Tumor Symptoms & Reasons
Back pain, especially in the middle or lower back, is the most frequent symptom of spinal tumors. The pain may increase with activity and is often worse at night. Tumors growing within the vertebrae can make the spinal bones weak, causing them to break and collapse, a condition called a compression fracture. The vertebral fractures, as well as the tumors themselves, can compress spinal cord or spinal nerves, causing pain, numbness and muscle weakness in the arms or legs, or even paralysis with loss of bowel or bladder control in the portion of the body below the tumor. Primary spinal tumors develop inside the spinal canal. They are caused by DNA mutations within cells, which can be inherited from a parent or acquired during the person's lifetime. Metastatic spinal tumors spread from cancerous cells outside the spine to the vertebrae, moving through the circulatory system to the bone marrow, where they form tumors.

Metastatic spinal cord compression
Metastatic spinal cord compression (MSCC) is an oncological emergency that describes when tumours (usually having spread from another part of the body) grow in the spinal column and compress the spinal cord. This video describes the effects in terms of symptoms and signs of MSCC, which cancers it is most commonly associated with, diagnosis and management.
Metastatic Cancer || Symptoms and General Causes of the Metastasis Cancer Disease
Metastatic cancer is a disease of metastasis. Symptoms and causes are related, which have spread from the most important tumor to other regions of the body. #MetastaticCancer can change from cancer to cancer. And when they're diagnosed with cancer, to have a second opinion. To know more detail subscribe this channel: https://goo.gl/gQL0cj Be sure they are very comfortable with their cancer team. This video talks about metastatic cancer, melanoma, metastasis, stage 4 cancer, and metastatic carcinoma. It is based on the kind of cancer which you are addressing and to what extent the disease has metastasized. It's the very same with particular types of cancer. It is not as common as metastatic cancer. Though most cancers are able to spread to numerous distinct areas of the body, they generally spread to a site more frequently than others. Melanoma can spread anywhere within the body. It is simply a second, completely one of a kind malignancy. Lymphoma can impact any portion of the body. The reason for bone sarcoma isn't certain, but heredity may perform a position. The Chronicles of Metastatic Cancer: If you feel as if you must spend an excessive amount of energy getting your oncologist to follow you, at least it's well worth bringing up the point that you're bringing here, I need you to obey me. In the majority of the post-menopausal ladies, it is common and with the gain in age will raise the risk also. I was quite fearful, number one. Numerous shrines throughout the USA are specifically devoted to people with cancer, together with their family members. If you believe you're not being listened to, that's an issue, in my perception. But if there's a question, it's possible to always ask the oncologist. It truly is based on the circumstance, what it is that you're searching for and what the signs are if any. Details of Metastatic Cancer: ILT is among the innovative procedures that are utilized to take care of metastatic cancer through the minimal invasive way. So it's only the special tumor biology. Tumor biology and unique cancers behave in various ways. As research continues is, approaches to increase efficacy increases. The book has numerous accounts of individuals who've lived for quite a while after being told there was no hope. Nothing within this report is designed to substitute for medical advice. These are only anecdotes, as few studies are conducted. Continue reading to learn what's going on within your body and that which it is possible to expect with treatment.

Can Bone Cancer Be Cured? Herbs
Can bone cancer be cured with herbs and what is the treatment for bone cancer with herbs? Over 2,000 people in the US are diagnosed with bone cancer each year. This type of cancer is caused by a problem with the cells that make up the bone. There are many different methods available for your doctor to treat bone cancer. The best treatment is based on the type of bone cancer, the location of the cancer, how aggressive the cancer is, and whether or not the cancer has invaded surrounding or distant tissues (metastasized). There are three main types of treatment for bone cancer: surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. These can be used either individually or combined with each other. There are numerous methods used to treat bone cancer and is usually determined by the type of bone cancer, the location of the cancer, and the aggressiveness of the cancer. The three types of treatment are surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation, and they are used either individually or in conjunction with each other. Surgery is often used to treat bone cancer. The goal of surgery is usually to remove the entire tumor and a surrounding area of normal bone. After the tumor has been removed, a pathologist examines it to determine if there is normal bone completely surrounding the tumor. If a portion of the cancer is left behind, it can continue to grow and spread, requiring further treatment. If the tumor specimen has normal cells completely surrounding it, there is a much better chance that the entire tumor has been removed and less chance for recurrence. Historically, amputations were frequently used to remove bone cancer. Newer techniques have decreased the need for amputation. In many cases, the tumor can be removed with a rim of normal bone without the need for an amputation. Depending on the amount of bone removed, the surgeon will replace something in its location. For smaller areas, this may be either bone cement or a bone graft from another place in your body or from the bone bank. For larger areas, the surgeon may place larger grafts from the bone bank or metal implants. Some of these metal implants have the ability to lengthen when used in growing children. Chemotherapy is used to stop the growth of the cancerous cells. This is the use of various medications used to try to stop the growth of the cancer cells. Chemotherapy can be used prior to surgery to try to shrink the bone tumor to make surgery easier. It can also be used after surgery to try to kill any remaining cancer cells left following surgery. It can be used prior to surgery in order to shrink the tumor making it easier to remove. Or, it can be used after surgery to kill the remaining cells that weren't removed with the tumor. Radiation is the last treatment for bone cancer. A high energy X-ray is used to kill the cancer cells. The radiation therapy uses high-energy X-ray aimed at the site of the cancer to try to kill the cancer cells. This treatment is given in small doses daily over a period of days to months. As with chemotherapy, radiation therapy can be used either before or after a potential surgery, depending on the specific type of cancer. Generally, it is performed in small doses and over a longer period of time, maybe even months. The prognosis for those with bone cancer is typically very good if the cancer is caught early. The survival rate varies among gender and race, but the average is 70%. It is important if you experience any of the symptoms to visit your doctor quickly.

Men tolerate symptomatic pain differently. Age and generational differences may affect how a man responds to pain, states Neal D. Shore, MD, FACS. A spouse or caregiver may help in relaying the patient’s use of analgesics, and reporting of pain. Bone metastases can occur throughout the body, explains Shore, including in the axial spine, appendicular skeleton, scapula, femur, and skull.

Prostate Cancer: Radiation Therapy
Chairman and Moderator: Bruce A. Chabner, MD Dr. Joe O'Sullivan presents current evidence that suggests radionuclide therapy requires some degree of bone metastasis to be effective in prostate cancer treatment at the Prostate Cancer: Progress and Promise Symposium held September 8, 2011 in Belfast.
The Pain of Cancer Treatment
The Pain of Cancer Treatment Julie Silver, MD, a cancer survivor, talks about the pain associated with cancer treatment. The pain can be due to a lot of different reasons. Pain can be due to the surgery itself, for sure. Pain can be due to neuropathy for instance from chemotherapy, there's pain with radiation burns and skin changes. A lot of times people are given medications that help increase the level of blood cells in their body, their white blood cells in particular, and that can cause a lot of bone pain which can be very severe. That's where most of my pain was, was really terrible bone pain. But pain can come from a lot of different sources. When people are de-conditioned, they can have overuse type pain, for instance like a woman who maybe had a mastectomy and is favoring one arm a little bit, and then is overusing the other arm, and then all of a sudden develops shoulder problems in the opposite arm, in her good arm. Tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, so on. And so there's a lot of different reasons why people may develop pain during cancer treatment because your body is undergoing so many different changes and because cancer treatment is usually so targeted throughout your body rather than just at one specific site.

Reducing Cancer Patients' Painful Treatment
A NASA light technology originally developed to aid plant growth experiments in space has proved to reduce the painful side effects resulting from chemotherapy and radiation treatment in bone marrow and stem cell transplant patients. In a two-year clinical trial, cancer patients undergoing bone marrow or stem cell transplants were given a far red/near infrared Light Emitting Diode treatment called High Emissivity Aluminiferous Luminescent Substrate, or HEALS. The Marshall-funded trial included cancer patients at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, the University of Alabama at Birmingham Hospital and the Children's Hospital of Alabama, also in Birmingham. The trial concluded that there is a 96 percent chance that the improvement in pain of those in the high-risk patient group was the result of the HEALS treatment.

Radiotherapy in the palliative treatment of pain in cancer patients/Belal A. Elhawwari
Palliative care & Pain Management Conference/ Day 1 ( 7/11/2012 ) The role of different Regimens of Radiotherapy in the palliative treatment of pain in cancer patients. Belal A. Elhawwari, MD*, Ahmad M. Telfah MD* Abstract Background: Bone is the most frequent site for metastases in patients with advanced solid tumors, such as prostate, breast, lung, thyroid and renal cancers (1). The epiphyses are a favored site of breast cancer metastasis to bone. Unlike the bone shaft, the ends of the long bones are areas of high bone turnover and are comprised of a specialized arrangement of osteoblasts, osteoclasts, stromal cells, hematopoietic cells, and endothelial cells (2). Consensus statements from the National Comprehensive Cancer Network on Cancer Pain, the Second Workshop on Palliative Radiotherapy and Symptom Control, and the Ontario Guidelines for Palliative Pain all advocate the use of EBRT in palliating painful bone metastases(3) For more than two decades an ongoing discussion on the optimal radiotherapy regimen has taken place. The first randomized study assessing the effect of one fraction of 8Gy versus multiple fractions (3Gy x 10) was published in 1986. (4) No difference was found between the regimens with regard to onset and/or duration of pain. (5) In 1974 the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG) initiated a randomized clinical trial comparing various dose-fractionation schedules in the palliation of cancer metastatic to bone. The trial was closed in February of 1980 and results have been published in 1982, (6) with the conclusion that "low-dose short schedules are as effective as more aggressive protracted programs". (7) Since that time, different radiotherapy schedules have been employed for palliation of bone metastasis: 40Gy in 20 fractions, 30Gy in 10 fractions and single fractions of 8Gy, 6Gy or 4Gy. Several randomized prospective trials and meta-analyses have been reported showing the same results in pain relief when comparing single doses vs. protracted treatments. Despite clinical evidence supporting single-fraction regimens, fractionated treatments remain the choice for pain treatment in many institutions worldwide. (8) The aim of this study was to compare the effectiveness of pain control of most common fractionation used in oncology to treat bone metastases which are 8Gy single fraction, 20Gy in five fractions and 30Gy in 10 fractions. Method: A total sample of 120 patients who were known to have stage IV cancer with bone metastasis were allocated to receive either 8Gy single fraction, 20Gy in five fractions or 30Gy in 10 fractions for the treatment of their pain between January 2007 and December 2009 at King Hussein Medical Center Amman - Jordan. Pain severity and analgesic requirements were recorded by the investigator on a questionnaire before treatment, at two weeks and at one, two, three, four, five, six, eight, 10 and 12 months after radiotherapy. Pain relief was the primary endpoint of treatment benefit. Pre-treatment pain was scored by patients before the start of treatment, usually one or two days prior to the time of radiotherapy planning. A question relating to pain severity over the previous 24 hour period was scored on a 4-point graded scale (none, a little, quite a bit, and very much). Post-treatment assessments of pain and analgesic usage were collected at two weeks and at one, two, three, four, five, six, eight, 10 and 12 months after the start of treatment. Questionnaires were filled by the investigator during these visits. Patients went off the study at death or after 12 months of follow-up. Mean and standard deviation were used as descriptive values of quantitative data and ANOVA for comparison of the three study variables. Results: There was no difference in the time to first improvement in pain, time to complete pain relief, or in time to first increase in pain at any time up to 12 months after randomization, nor in the class of analgesics used. Retreatment was twice as common after 8Gy as after multifraction difference between the three groups in the probability of pain relief. Conclusion: Taking into account all outcomes of response in terms of pain relief, and analgesic use, we found no statistically significant difference between the three treatment schedules under test. Neither was there any suggestion of an increased level of short-term adverse effects associated with a single fraction of 8Gy radiotherapy. A single fraction of 8Gy radiotherapy thus appears as safe and effective as a multifraction regimen for the palliation of metastatic bone pain for at least 12 months. It's greater convenience and lower cost therefore make 8Gy single fraction radiotherapy the treatment of choice for the majority of patients.
Pituitary Tumor - Symptoms and Causes of this Cancer Making Pituitary Adenoma Disease
The pituitary tumor is a compact pituitary adenoma by its symptoms and causes. To sum up, #PituitaryTumor is one of the greatest irrigated structures of our organism with a complex vascular system, and therefore pituitary adenomas have a 5.4 greater chance to bleed than any other brain tumor. To know more detail subscribe this channel: https://goo.gl/gQL0cj About the magnitude of a pea, the pituitary gland is situated in the middle of the brain supporting the nose and eyes. It is a small structure attached to the base of the brain behind the nose, where it is protected by a part of the skull called the sphenoid bone. The pituitary gland can be impacted by brain tumors that develop in the exact same area of the brain, leading to similar symptoms. What is Pituitary Tumor? Adenomas are undoubtedly the most frequent disease affecting the pituitary gland. Even though a little adenoma might not need treatment, your physician will monitor its size with time. Pituitary adenomas are comparatively common. In the event the pituitary adenomas require surgery, typically the optimal/optimally procedure is by way of a nasal strategy. Additionally, they bleed much more than any other central nervous system tumor. Tumors can likewise be due to exposure to cancer-causing substances or radiation. Pituitary tumors are generally called pituitary adenomas. They can vary in size and behavior. They are found in men and women of all ages, although they are more common in older patients. The precise cause of pituitary tumors isn't known. Many pituitary tumors are small, do not result in health problems and might never require treatment. Pituitary Tumor Review: The exam will check for indications of an excessive amount of cortisol (Cushing syndrome) or an excessive amount of growth hormone (acromegaly). It explains what tests may be required to find out more about the reason for the indicators. Additional laboratory tests might be necessary so as to ascertain the kind of Cushing's disease. The notion of radiosurgery originated within this venue. As our comprehension of pituitary tumors grows so will our capacity to attain effective therapy. For some folks, taking away the tumor will also halt the pituitary's capability to generate a particular hormone. Another has become the inability to rapidly reverse visual loss in sizeable tumors using radiation. It's likewise crucial to address pituitary failure (hypopituitarism), especially before surgery. Other conditions can also cause pituitary difficulties. Certain rare inherited conditions can indicate a greater chance of pituitary tumors. Headache isn't necessarily connected with sub-arachnoid hemorrhage or means tumoral growth past the sella turcica. Symptoms may vary and might not be present at all. Usually, only a couple of symptoms appear in dogs which are the reason why it can be rather tough to detect.

Recurring Breast Cancer with Bone and Liver Metastasis
Leanne Coombes from Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada Leanne in her own words: "I was diagnosed in 2006 with DCIS (Ductal Carcinoma in Situ) in my left breast, so I went through surgery and radiation. My lymph nodes were clean and they were hoping that was it. But in 2008 it came back in the same place, so I had more surgery, this time it had traveled to my lymph nodes, and I went through 6 months of chemotherapy. And just in June 2011, it was discovered that it has come back again, this time it has metastasized to my bones and liver. Some chemotherapy and radiation were offered to deal with the pain, etc. I knew that there was healing that could happen to my body, I really believed that my body could heal from the cancer this was taking over... So I started doing some research online and came across some great places. But one day while searching I came across Issels (http://www.issels.com) and I spent 2 hours on the website just reading and rereading. I just had an incredible peace come over me that this was where I needed to be to heal. So here I am and I've been here almost 3 weeks and had some great results. We've been following some of my tumor markers, I've had 3 abnormal tumor markers that had dropped already in a short period of time. The largest drop being my CA-125 and it's dropped from 70 to 52 so that's a pretty big success, I'm very excited. I'm feeling great. Treatments are just fabulous...I'm feeling just better and better with each day. I will be leaving here with such an optimistic outlook, the most optimism I've had for a future. And I really can't say enough about the staff here. They've just been incredible, loving, caring people. Issels has definitely been a life-changing experience for me. I know I'm on my way to healing." For more information about the Issels Treatment, please visit our website: http://www.issels.com.

CT-Scans and Radiation comes with a huge risk. CT-Scan of the abdomen is equivalent to being exposed to 200 chest x-rays or 1,500 dental x-rays. Ionizing radiation could create DNA damage and also causes cancer. The FDA says that 30 to 50% CT-scans are medically unnecessary. He also talks about the cancer that you would get from all that accumulated radiation. Cancer would show up delayed or wouldn’t show up right away. Things you can do to minimize the damage and help reduce the effects of the radiation in the body: • Sea Kelp • Spirulina • Wheatgrass Juice • Chlorella • Extra Virgin Olive Oil • Cruciferous / Sprouts • Green Tea • Curcumin Dr. Eric Berg DC Bio: Dr. Berg, 52 years of age is a chiropractor who specializes in weight loss through nutritional and natural methods.

9 Early Signs of Lung Cancer
Lung cancer may not produce any noticeable symptoms in the early stages. In approximately 40 percent of people diagnosed with lung cancer, the diagnosis is made after the disease has advanced. In one-third of those diagnosed, the cancer has reached stage 3. Cough that won't quit Be on alert for a new cough that lingers. A cough associated with a cold or respiratory infection will go away in a week or two, but a persistent cough that lingers can be a symptom of lung cancer. Don't be tempted to dismiss a stubborn cough, whether it is dry or produces mucus. See your doctor right away. They will listen to your lungs and may order an X-ray or other tests. Change in a cough Pay attention to any changes in a chronic cough, particularly if you are a smoker. If you are coughing more often, your cough is deeper or has hoarse sound, or you are coughing up blood or more mucus than usual, it's time to make a doctor's appointment. If a family member or friend experiences these changes, suggest that they visit their doctor. Breathing changes Shortness of breath or becoming easily winded can also be possible symptoms of lung cancer. Changes in breathing can occur if lung cancer blocks or narrows an airway, or if fluid from a lung tumor builds up in the chest. Make a point of noticing when you feel winded or short of breath. If you find it's difficult to breath after climbing stairs or performing tasks you could do before without having a hard time breathing, don't ignore it. Pain in the chest area Lung cancer may produce pain in the chest, shoulders, or back. An aching feeling may not be associated with coughing. Tell your doctor if you notice any type of chest pain, whether it is sharp, dull, constant, or comes and goes. You should also note whether it is confined to a specific area or is occurring throughout your chest. When lung cancer causes chest pain, the discomfort may result from enlarged lymph nodes or metastasis to the chest wall, the lining around the lungs called pleura, or the ribs. Wheezing When airways become constricted, blocked, or inflamed, the lungs produce a wheezing or whistling sound when you breathe. Wheezing can be associated with multiple causes, some of which are benign and easily treatable. However, wheezing is also a symptom of lung cancer, which is why it merits your doctor's attention. Don't assume that wheezing is caused by asthma or allergies. Have your doctor confirm the cause. Raspy, hoarse voice If you hear a significant change in your voice, or if someone else points out that your voice sounds deeper, hoarse, or raspier, get checked out by your doctor. Hoarseness can be caused by a simple cold, but this symptom may point to something more serious when it persists for more than two weeks. Hoarseness related to lung cancer can occur when the tumor affects the nerve that controls the larynx, or voice box. Drop in weight An unexplained weight loss of 10 pounds or more may be associated with lung cancer or another type of cancer. When cancer is present, this drop in weight may result from cancer cells using energy. It could also result from shifts in the way the body uses energy from food. Don't write off a change in your weight if you haven't been trying to shed pounds. It may be a clue to a change in your health. Bone pain Lung cancer that has spread to the bones may produce pain in the back or in other areas of the body. This pain may worsen at night while resting on the back. It may be difficult to differentiate between bone and muscle pain. Bone pain is often worse at night and increases with movement. Additionally, lung cancer is sometimes associated with shoulder, arm, or neck pain, although this is less common. Be attentive to your aches and pains, and discuss them with your doctor. Headache Headaches may be a sign that lung cancer has spread to the brain. However, not all headaches are associated with brain metastases. Sometimes, a lung tumor may create pressure on the superior vena cava. This is the large vein that moves blood from the upper body to the heart. The pressure can also trigger headaches.

Phytochemicals are the reason why they have their dark hue. and the secret of their effectiveness, which are proven to be great for cancer prevention. 2. GREEN TEA. Tea is the best source of catechins in the human diet, and green tea contains about three times the quantity of catechins found in black tea. In laboratory studies, green tea has been shown to slow or completely prevent cancer development in colon, liver, breast and prostate cells. 3. THE TOMATO EFFECT. According to recent Harvard research, there is up to 50% reduction in chances for prostate cancer in people who regularly ate cooked tomatoes. It was proven that tomatoes are incredibly effective in inhibiting the angiogenesis, and the reason why this fruit is so effective is that they contain high amounts of a substance called lycopene, which has strong anti angiogenic properties. In addition, lycopene concentration increases when it is subjected to higher temperatures. That is why cooked tomatoes are very effective when it comes to stopping cancer growth. 4. DARK CHOCOLATE. For many people this is almost unbelievable. Dark chocolate is an incredibly tasty dessert, which also happens to be incredibly healthy to eat, it is good for your heart condition, your overall happiness and also for fighting cancer cells. 5.

6 Techniques for Cancer Patients | Reflexology
Like these Massage lessons !!! Check out the official app http://apple.co/1IAinBB Watch more How to Do Reflexology videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/501563-6-Techniques-for-Cancer-Patients-Reflexology So, reflexology and cancer. There is so much research that's been done over the years. And certainly research that's being done right now. So if you're curious about reflexology and cancer, I so encourage you to look into the studies. There's a major one being done right now with the National Cancer Institute in this country, the United States, with the NIH. The National Institutes of Health. It's Michigan State University and they are doing incredible work on breast cancer patients and reflexology. This is their second grant and it's really astonishing work. So just research it if you like. Branch Reflexology. Barbara Bower. There's some wonderful people doing that. So it's out there. With cancer, it really depends on the person you're with. If they have cancer, it's really important that you're communicating with them the whole time. If they're undergoing some kind of chemotherapy, they might be really, really sensitive in their feet. So you might want to focus more on relaxation techniques. So we'll start with those. Some of the ones you can use might be the lung press for example. With the lung press you're going to go ahead and make a fist and you're going to with your thumb go ahead and insert it there. And then this hand will support the foot. So this part of the hand will be on the ball of their foot. So we bring it right there and we're just going to support with these fingers. Then to do the lung press we go ahead and press forward and then we kind of wave their foot towards us back. And we go front and back. We're going to do this bilaterally. So it means we're going to be doing it on both feet. We could do it the other direction too. You'll do the other foot as well. Some of the other things you could do could be the metatarsal mover. Just with your thumbs moving the metatarsal heads ever so gently. Again it's really important sometimes the just gentlest of touch for someone who's going through cancer is really, really special. So I encourage you to look into how to be present with your friend or family member and even just holding the feet can be really valuable. You can also work on the foot, in general, as a whole. So you could do all the reflexology techniques. You could do the thumb walking, the finger walking, in particular for the entire body. So we can for instance to the whole arch or belly of the foot. You could do the thumb walking up. You're passing through all of these wonderful vital organ reflexes. Certainly get your maps and look at what you're passing through. You might want to give a little more or less attention to something depending on the kind of cancer your person has. In addition you also can do thumb walking on the heels. You could do it on the ball of the foot. The whole lymphatic system falls through here and across here. So certainly you could do everything, but the relaxation techniques tend to be very popular amongst cancer patients.

How to Heal from Cancer & Prevention
How to Heal from Cancer & Prevention Did you know that fluoride was a toxic agent that is given to large communities without any regulation on the dosage? "But I don't drink tap water," I hear you saying. Well, do you boil your pasta in tap water? Do you wash your fruits and vegetables in tap water? Do you brush your teeth with tap water? If so, you DO take in unmeasured levels of Fluoride every day which leads to an increase in cancer rates. If you are lucky enough to live on the West Coast, you are also being subjected to radiation from Fukishima every day which causes an increase in dangerous free radicals!

Through Cancer Pain Sickness and Suffering
Today I went for my ninth radiation therapy 19 more to go. As the radiation therapist was preparing me for radiation the one therapist asked me about South Africa and then the other one asked me why I came to America. Why did I come here? And I said, because God sent me. I shared my testimony with them, how 20 years ago I had a heart attack and I died. Even though I was a Christian I found myself on my way to hell, but I pleaded with Jesus and He allowed me to come back to come and warn the world that Jesus is alive and hell is real, and also that not long after the heart attack Jesus gave me a vision of a place called Baltimore on the east coast of the US and He told me to go there, which I did. And that is why I came here, to come and witness for Jesus, to come and tell the world that Jesus is alive and hell is real. It was also here that I was diagnosed with cancer. The one therapist was very quick to remark that the purpose for me getting cancer was so that I could share my testimony with them. They thanked me for sharing my testimony with them. That was my experience with so many doctors, nurses and hospital personnel with whom I shared my testimony since I was diagnosed with cancer. Jesus has a purpose with us and He uses us for His purpose so that we can witness for Him. I thank Jesus that even through my cancer, pain and suffering I can be a witness for Him because that is what He called us to do, is to be a witness for Him to bring light in darkness. We have to be willing to be a witness for Jesus and then we will see the opportunity when Jesus opens the door for us to witness for Him. When people ask us about our situation or where we come from it is easy to talk about our country our own things but what really matters is our relationship with Jesus, our testimony of Jesus Christ. That is what we need to talk about. We need to share our testimony of Jesus so that they can also believe in Him, get to know Him, follow Him, obey Him and have eternal life. It is a privilege to be a witness for Jesus Christ in all circumstances. May Jesus bless you. WITNESS FOR JESUS! Visit me at: http://www.finalcall07.com email: finalcall07@gmail.com

Dr. Gary W. Jay Discusses the Pain Associated With Bone Metastases
Gary W. Jay, MD, DAAPM, FAAPM, Medical Consultant, Raleigh-Durahm, NC, talks about the pain associated with bone metastases and how they usually present in practice. Dr. Jay says bone metastases cause breakthrough pain in patients. He says it's an important consideration because many doctors don't understand what breakthrough pain is, either breakthrough pain in cancer or breakthrough pain in benign conditions. Treatment for breakthrough pain is particularly important in patients with cancer who have bone metastases and know how their movements affect their pain because the pain can disrupt their lives. Dr. Jay adds there is no approved prophylactic treatment for breakthrough pain.
