Cancer (Definition)

Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more

Could all cancers spread if not caught in time?

Could all cancers spread if not caught in time?

Yes: That's the definition of cancer.....A cell that has uncontrollable growth and invades tissues and spreads. If not caught early, it has a high potential to spread, if it hasn't already. ...Read more

Will the cancer spread to other parts of my body?

We hope not.: What makes a cancer "evil" is the ability of cancer cells to travel outside of the organ where they arose and take over another organ; this is how cancer can be life-threatening. In advanced cases of cancer, we can identify these "invaders", but most often, these cells are present but undetectable. The stage of the cancer gives us an estimate of this probability, leading to the rec for chemorx. ...Read more

What are the causes of cancer and what causes it to spread?

What are the causes of cancer and what causes it to spread?

Mutation: Cancer is an abnormal proliferation of cells. There are mutations in the dna that lead to the uncontrolled growth of the cells.There are certain environmental factors like tobacco smoke or radiation that are clear mutagens.The cells grow rapidly and lose their contact inhibition-thus their local spread and invasion. Cancers can also spread through the blood and set up at distant sites (metastases). ...Read more

What's good food to eat so cancer wont spread inside the body?

What's good food to eat so cancer wont spread inside the body?

Good and balanced: A good and balanced diet is your best defense. A well nourished body has a better chance to fight cancer than a poorly nourished one. So, consume good levels of protein. Include a variety of fruits, vegetables, and nuts. The greater variety, the more likely you'll consume the proper nutrients. And, don't smoke and take it easy with adult beverages. Good luck. ...Read more

I learned that cancer can spread if you are opened up and operated on. Is that true?

No: It is essential that all primary tumors even in the face of metastasis be surgically resected. This gives the best opportunity either for cure or long term management. if one decides to open an abdomen to resect a tumor that they complete the task. Opening an abdomen and then closing because of misjudgement and leaving the tumor behind does place the immune system at a risk with poorer survival. ...Read more

Can you tell me if they want to check if cancer has spread to some other part of the body then what kind of scan would they do?

Can you tell me if they want to check if cancer has spread to some other part of the body then what kind of scan would they do?

Depends...: ...on the kind of cancer and which organ is being looked at. Sometimes a test as simple as a plain X-Ray may give the answer. Other times you may need a CT scan or a nuclear medicine test like a bone scan or PET. ...Read more

Will cancer spreads in thryoid cancer?

Will cancer spreads in thryoid cancer?

Good luck.: And that's what it is. You've done your part by choosing to seek treatment. Once the cancer is diagnosed, operated, graded, and staged, it is a waiting game. The large majority of common papillary carcinomas confined to the gland do not spread. Almost all anaplastic carcinomas spread and kill. Your physician must talk frankly with you about this. Good luck, and be strong. ...Read more

What happens when cancer spreads to the spine?

Spine Metastasis: Usually nothing happens, actually. If patients with breast cancer, as many as 80% will have mets at autopsy. So, it depends upon tumor type. Lytic tumors do weaken the bone and could cause fracture (myeloma, lung, renal cell, thyroid). While blastic tumors are not at higher risk of fracture. Worst case is aggressive tumors that cause spinal cord pressure and possible paralysis. Pain precedes these. ...Read more

Using syringes, is cancer easily spread?

No: It is hard to transplant a tumor. Even if the cells are in the bloodstream and bear the ability to form their own colonies, anybody except your identical twin will reject them as foreign.

Why does cancer spread so fast after surgery?

This is a Myth: There is no scientific data to support the notion that cancer spreads fast after surgery (or when cancer is exposed to air during surgery). This is a total myth. This belief tends to be more common in the south. ...Read more

How do cancer cells spread from their original site?

Multi-step process: Cancer develops due to progressive damage to the genome of the cells exposed to various insults. The initial change facilitates cell growth and additional damage changes the dna of the cells that enables them to grow unchecked, invade local tissues, including lymphatics and blood vessels. The malignant cells are then carried through the lymph and/or blood to other organs. ...Read more

Once cancer has spread to other body parts, is there hope for recovery?

Once cancer has spread to other body parts, is there hope for recovery?

Depends: Some cancers, like testicular or certain kinds of lymphomas, can be cured even if spread. Others, while incurable, are nonetheless controllable for long periods of time (often years). Examples include some kinds of lymphomas ; leukemias and some kinds of breast cancer. Sadly, some others are very aggressive and the best we can do is offer comfort. ...Read more

What is the probability of fighting off cancer after it has come back and spread.?

It depends....: Each cancer has its own treatment and outcome. We need to know what type of Cancer it is? For example did it begin in Lung or breast when first treated? where is the recurrence/metastases at present??.
We have good treatments for many tumor types. If treated with modern treatments many patients with recurrence of cancer live for several years....sometimes the Cancer is eradicated/patient is cured ...Read more

Is it true that cancer spreads faster after a person has been opened up for surgery?

Is it true that cancer spreads faster after a person has been opened up for surgery?

Perhaps the most: Misguided myth of cancer and cancer treatment. There is no evidence or credibility to this, but the cause of the myth came from premature operation before adequate work up. The "peek and shriek" occured when inadequate diagnostic work up before an operation, and when the surgeon realized nothing could be done and closed, the common phrase "the air got to it" was really more about injudicious op. ...Read more

What is multifocal malignancy? Is that spread or is that just multiple individual cancers?

Depends: This is a great question and really depends on the circumstances. Sometimes this is very difficult to tell, and prompts doctors to look for other signs. In breast and liver cancer, multifocal usually means that these are multiple individual cancers that arise due to a "field defect". Your medical oncologist can help you understand your particular case better. ...Read more

Does cancer show strong symptoms before it spreads or are there no symptoms until it spreads?

Detecting cancer: Many cancers are silent until they spread. Symptoms arise when they spread to compress nerves, blood supply or other vital functions. Some cancers produce hormones or mediators and can produce abnormal signs and symptoms drawing suspicion by means of abnormal dynamic metabolic function, and abnormal test results. ...Read more
