Lung Cancer Progression And Staging - Manipal Hospitals
 
03:06
The most common form of lung cancer is non-small cell lung cancer. It is staged according to the size of the tumour and whether it has spread to the lymph nodes or other organs of the body. There are 4 stages of lung cancer. In the occult stage, cancer cells are accumulated in the fluids in the lungs and there is no tumour yet. In stage 0, cancer cells are found in the airway passages. Stage 1A and 1B are invasive cancer as tumour grows in the inner lining of airways and then spread into the bronchus. In stage 2A, it spreads to the lymph nodes on the same side of the chest. Stage 2B has two categories in which the cancer has invaded the diaphragm, chest walls and membranes around the heart and the tumour has grown in the bronchus and lymph nodes. In stage 3A, it spreads to lymph nodes and other structures nearby. In 3B, tumour may be of any size and spread to more lymph nodes on the same side and to nearby structures too. In stage 4, tumour has spread in other parts of the body. This informative animated video explains in detail about the staging and progression of lung cancer. The staging of lung cancer refers to the extent of the disease. If one has the most common form of lung cancer or non-small cell lung cancer, it will be staged according to the size of the tumour and whether it has spread to lymph nodes or other nodes of the body. In occult or hidden stage, the cancer cells are found in the coughed up mucus or in other fluids, but no tumour can be seen in the lungs. Stage zero is not considered invasive because the cancer cells are found in the innermost lining of the air passages, but have not grown through it. Stage 1A is known as the invasive cancer, because the tumour has grown the inner lining of the airways into the deep lung tissue.

Pancreatic cancer usually spreads rapidly and is seldom detected in its early stages, which is a major reason why it's a leading cause of cancer relating death. Signs and symptoms of pancreatic cancer may not appear until it is quite advanced and complete surgical removal isn't possible. Causes of pancreatic cancer. 1. Genes - the DNA type. 2. Genes - the family type. 3. Carcinogens. 4. Other medical factors. 5. Traits, habits, and diet. Stages of pancreatic cancer. Stage I. Cancer is confined to the pancreas and can be removed using surgery. Stage II. Cancer has spread beyond the pancreas to nearby tissues and organs and may have spread to the lymph nodes. At this stage, surgery may be possible to remove the cancer. Stage III. Cancer has spread beyond the pancreas to the major blood vessels around the pancreas and may have spread to the lymph nodes. Surgery may or may not be possible to remove the cancer at this stage. Stage IV. Cancer has spread to distant sites beyond the pancreas, such as the liver, lungs and the lining that surrounds your abdominal organs. Surgery isn't an option at this stage in the disease. Pancreatic Cancer Symptoms. Pancreatic Cancer and Gastrointestinal Symptoms. -Abdominal pain. More than 80% of people with pancreatic cancer eventually experience some abdominal pain as the tumor grows. Pancreatic cancer can cause a dull ache in the upper abdomen radiating to the back. The pain may come and go. -Bloating. Some people with pancreatic cancer have a sense of early fullness with meals (satiety) or an uncomfortable swelling in the abdomen. -Pale-colored stools. If the duct draining bile into the intestine is blocked by pancreatic cancer, the stools may lose their brown color and become pale or clay-colored. Urine may become darker.- -Diarrhea. -Nausea. Pancreatic Cancer: Whole-Body Symptoms. As it grows and spreads, pancreatic cancer affects the whole body. Such symptoms can include: -Malaise. -Weight loss. -Loss of appetite. -Elevated blood sugars. like and share this video. Don't forget to Subscribe my channel for health updates.

Always seek the advice of a qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Perfect for patient education. The number of cells in a tissue is determined by the balance between cell division and cell death. Uncontrollable cell division leads to formation of abnormal growths called tumors. Tumors can be benign or malignant. Benign tumors are slow-growing and constrained by surrounding connective tissue so they do not spread to other organs. They can still be harmful or even kill by pressing on nearby nerves, brain tissue or blood vessels. Examples of benign tumor include pituitary tumors which may press on optic nerves and cause loss of vision. Cancers are malignant tumors - tumors that can spread beyond of the limit of original organ where it comes from and to other organs of the body. How cancer starts Cancer starts from damage in the DNA of a cell. This DNA damage is called mutation. Mutations happen when the cell duplicates its DNA prior to cell division and makes mistakes. These damages are usually detected and repaired before the cell can divide but sometimes, some of them may be ignored and transferred to daughter cells. If the mutation is located in one of many genes that control the cell cycle, it may affect the regulation of cell cycle in the cell carrying it, and make the cell divide faster than it supposed to. Usually, one mutation is not enough to cause cancer, but as it makes the cell cycle control less reliable, many more DNA damages/mutations would go unnoticed. Cancer is usually the result of accumulation of many mutations of genes involved in cell cycle control and DNA repair. This commonly happens over a long period of time, over many rounds of cell divisions, and this explains why cancers are more common in older people. Some people are said to be predisposed to cancer. This is because they are born with a mutation that makes them more likely to develop a certain type of cancer. This mutation alone is not enough to cause cancer but it starts the process of making cells cancerous. The person carrying it is one step further down the road towards developing a cancer than others who do not have the mutation. How cancer spreads Cancer cells do not stick together like normal cells, they move and invade nearby tissues, organs, this is local spread. They may also spread to further away organs by means of blood and lymph circulation, this is systemic spread. Metastasis is the spreading of cancers to non-adjacent organs. Cancer cells from the original tumor, or primary cancer, can break out and maybe taken up by a blood or a lymph vessel for a ride throughout the body. They can then squeeze out from the vessels into other tissues and start a new tumor growth in the new location which will become secondary cancer. Where do cancers usually spread and why? While travelling in the bloodstream, cancer cell usually stops at the first place where the vessel getting so narrow that it gets stuck. As blood flow from most organs goes to the capillaries of the lungs, this is where cancers spread the most. Lungs are indeed the most common site of secondary cancers. Likewise, while travelling in the lymphatic system, cancer cells commonly get stuck in nearest lymph nodes, where the vessels get narrower. This is the reason why surgeons usually remove nearby lymph nodes when removing tumors.

LIFE Before Death Cancer Pain
 
03:19
DVD OUT NOW http://www.lifebeforedeath.com "Cancer Pain" Short Film 9 of 50 in the LIFE Before Death documentary series about the global crisis in untreated pain and the dramatic life changing effect palliative care services can deliver to patients and their families around the world. In this Short Film we discover that cancer is the most feared disease and the problem of cancer pain is an escalating problem worldwide. "Studies in a number of countries have shown when you ask people what disease worries them most if they thought they had it, cancer is streets ahead of anything else," reports Professor David Hill (Australia). Over 12 million people are likely to be diagnosed with cancer this year alone and 7 million will die of the disease. Cancer kills more people than AIDS and tuberculosis combined. "There are at least 5 million people who die of cancer each year with untreated pain," states Dr Kathleen Foley (USA). "We think this is an underestimate of pain in the world because there are 12 million survivors of cancer, people living with cancer, and we know about a third of them experience pain." Dr Eva Rossina Duarte Juarez (Guatemala) agrees that cancer is indeed painful. "In the situation of advanced illnesses, people need to be able to die in peace." Breast cancer patient Carmen (Australia) reflects that she doesn't fear death however she did fear the essential medications designed to treat her cancer pain. "I had a lot of pain on every level, whether it was physical or emotional." Dr Mark Boughey (Australia) of Caritas Christi Hospice in Melbourne explains, "When Carmen got here pain was the big issue... She had that really problematic neuropathic pain so you couldn't even touch her skin without her screaming and being distressed." "This problem is very much with us, it's a global problem, but also there are things we can do to bring the escalating problem of cancer under control," Professor David Hill. Carmen reflects that professional treatment of her pain brought back her sanity and quality of life. "I'm very blessed to have had this opportunity ... I've had really good care." Featuring Professor David Hill (Australia), Dr Kathleen Foley (USA), Dr Eva Rossina Duarte Juarez (Guatemala), Dr Mark Boughey (Australia), Carmen (Australia). LIFE Before Death will include 50 short films themed around pain control and end of life issues, releasing one a week for a year from May 2011. A feature film was released in early 2012 and is available at http://www.lifebeforedeath.com The project is presented by the Lien Foundation and produced by Moonshine Movies. It is also supported by the International Association for the Study of Pain, The Mayday Fund, the Union for International Cancer Control and The Institute for Palliative Medicine at San Diego Hospice International Programs.

The Ten Stages Of Your Death
 
03:30
Ever wondered what happens to your body after you die? Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Description: If there is a common thread that brings us all together, it is the fact that one day we will all die. Despite what religion may say, none of us actually know what will happen once we die. One of the factors that bring in a lot of anxiety is what will happen to our body. There are about ten stages of death all together, and learning about them is enough to make anyone queasy, but it shouldn’t matter about it happening to you because, well, you’ll be dead. While we don’t know as to whether our consciousness survives, if we go to heaven, linger on the earth, or just cease to exist, science can at least answer the physical questions about what happens to our body. Unfortunately, science’s answers about physical death doesn’t do much to comfort a grieving family, or give peace to someone who may be fearing death to an extreme. But, the simple fact is that we will all eventually die, hopefully after living long and fulfilling lives. When death begins, you no longer have the ability to cough or swallow. Therefore, you’re unable to get rid of the mucus in your lungs and you’ll start to produce the classic and well known “death rattle” when you breathe. Once you die, your organs will no longer be receiving oxygen, and they will begin to shut down. When all of your organs are dead, then you will be officially dead. But the death cycle does not stop there, the next stage is livor mortis, where the blood is no longer flowing and will begin to pool and cause a red/blue color in the skin. Cell death soon follows, as cells break down for not having any more ATP being produced by the liver and no oxygen is flowing through the body. Since there is no blood flow, rigor mortis will take place, where the muscles will stiffen. The corpse may end up making squealing or moaning noises from the vocal chords stiffening up as well. Purge fluid will also come up from the nose and mouth, which is simply a reddish-brown fluid that is often mistaken for blood. While the cells break down, they will emit a chemical that will break down the rest of the cells in your body causing putrefaction. Decomposition soon follows where the body will bloat from the cadaverine and putrescine. Soon, your body then begins to dry up and fluids are lost. This is what the ancient Egyptians were trying to achieve in mummification by bypassing the stages of death and jumping straight to the loss of fluids. The final stages of death include your skin and organs drying up and falling apart off your skeleton. Bugs and other friends of nature may feast on your body for the last remaining nutrients that you have. Eventually, you will be reduced to nothing more than a skeleton, and your death cycle is complete. Lucky for us, we won’t be conscious for 90% of the stages of death. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheRichest.org Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheRichest_Com Instagram: http://instagram.com/therichest ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Featuring: Death Begins Organ Death Livor Mortis Cell Death Rigor Mortis Purge Fluid Putrefaction Decomposition Loss of Fluids Final Stages ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.therichest.com/

This video discusses how the different stages of cancer are classified. The staging is usually based on the size of the tumor, whether it is invasive or non-invasive, has spread beyond the breast, and whether it has attacked any lymph nodes. There are five stages of Cancer. Stage zero is non-invasive cancer where there is no evidence the cancer cells have spread into neighboring breast tissue. Stage one is an early stage of invasive cancer. There is no evidence that the cancer has spread beyond the breast tissue areas. Stages two and three deal with invasive cancer that has also spread to the lymph nodes under the arms. Stage four is an advanced cancer that has spread to other organs of the body.

Early Signs that Cancer is Growing in Your Body
 
16:15
Don’t rely on routine tests alone to protect you from cancer. It’s just as important to listen to your body and notice anything that’s different, odd, or unexplainable. Here are some signs that are commonly overlooked: 1. Wheezing or shortness of breath One of the first signs many lung cancer patients remember noticing is the inability to catch their breath. 2. Chronic cough or chest pain Several types of cancer, including leukemia and lung tumors, can cause symptoms that mimic a bad cough or bronchitis. Some lung cancer patients report chest pain that extends up into the shoulder or down the arm. 3. Frequent fevers or infections These can be signs of leukemia, a cancer of the blood cells that starts in the bone marrow. Leukemia causes the marrow to produce abnormal white blood cells, sapping your body’s infection-fighting capabilities. 4. Difficulty swallowing Trouble swallowing is most commonly associated with esophageal or throat cancer, and is sometimes one of the first signs of lung cancer, too. 5. Swollen lymph nodes or lumps on the neck, underarm, or groin Enlarged lymph nodes indicate changes in the lymphatic system, which can be a sign of cancer. 6. Excessive bruising or bleeding that doesn’t stop This symptom usually suggests something abnormal happening with the platelets and red blood cells, which can be a sign of leukemia. Over time, leukemia cells crowd out red blood cells and platelets, impairing your blood’s ability to carry oxygen and clot. 7. Weakness and fatigue Generalized fatigue and weakness is a symptom of so many different kinds of cancer that you’ll need to look at it in combination with other symptoms. But any time you feel exhausted without explanation and it doesn’t respond to getting more sleep, talk to your doctor. 8. Bloating or abdominal weight gain Women diagnosed with ovarian cancer overwhelmingly report unexplained abdominal bloating that came on fairly suddenly and continued on and off over a long period of time. 9. Feeling full and unable to eat This is another tip-off to ovarian cancer; women say they have no appetite and can’t eat, even when they haven’t eaten for some time. 10. Pelvic or abdominal pain Pain and cramping in the pelvis and abdomen can go hand in hand with the bloating that often signals ovarian cancer. Leukemia can also cause abdominal pain resulting from an enlarged spleen. 11. Rectal bleeding or blood in stool This is a common result of diagnosing colorectal cancer. Blood in the toilet alone is reason to call your doctor and schedule a colonoscopy. 12. Unexplained weight loss Weight loss is an early sign of colon and other digestive cancers; it’s also a sign of cancer that’s spread to the liver, affecting your appetite and the ability of your body to rid itself of wastes. 13. Upset stomach or stomachache Stomach cramps or frequent upset stomachs may indicate colorectal cancer. 14. A red, sore, or swollen breast These symptoms can indicate inflammatory breast cancer. Call your doctor about any unexplained changes to your breasts. 15. Nipple changes One of the most common changes women remember noticing before being diagnosed with breast cancer is a nipple that began to appear flattened, inverted, or turned sideways. 16. Unusually heavy or painful periods or bleeding between periods Many women report this as the tip-off to endometrial or uterine cancer. Ask for a transvaginal ultrasound if you suspect something more than routine heavy periods. 17. Swelling of facial features Some patients with lung cancer report noticing puffiness, swelling, or redness in the face. Small cell lung tumors commonly block blood vessels in the chest, preventing blood from flowing freely from your head and face. 18. A sore or skin lump that doesn’t heal, becomes crusty, or bleeds easily Familiarize yourself with the different types of skin cancer —melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma — and be vigilant about checking skin all over your body for odd-looking growths or spots.

Twiter : https://twitter.com/HealthB60542247 Google + https://goo.gl/ZXvG4p Most lung cancers do not cause any symptoms until they have spread, but some people with early lung cancer do have symptoms. If you go to your doctor when you first notice symptoms, your cancer might be diagnosed at an earlier stage, when treatment is more likely to be effective. The most common symptoms of lung cancer are: A cough that does not go away or gets worse Coughing up blood or rust-colored sputum (spit or phlegm) Chest pain that is often worse with deep breathing, coughing, or laughing Hoarseness Weight loss and loss of appetite Shortness of breath Feeling tired or weak Infections such as bronchitis and pneumonia that don’t go away or keep coming back New onset of wheezing If lung cancer spreads to distant organs, it may cause: Bone pain (like pain in the back or hips) Nervous system changes (such as headache, weakness or numbness of an arm or leg, dizziness, balance problems, or seizures), from cancer spread to the brain or spinal cord Yellowing of the skin and eyes (jaundice), from cancer spread to the liver Lumps near the surface of the body, due to cancer spreading to the skin or to lymph nodes (collections of immune system cells), such as those in the neck or above the collarbone

What is Stage 4 Lung Cancer Life Expectancy? https://www.verywell.com/what-is-stage-4-lung-cancer-life-expectancy-2249420 Variables That Affect Survival Stage 4 lung cancer life expectancy can vary considerably among different people. Some of these variables include: Your particular lung cancer type and location – Stage 4 lung cancer encompasses several lung cancer types and includes cancers that have spread to only one distant region or those that have spread extensively. Survival can also be affected by the genetic characteristics of the tumor (learn more about molecular profiling for lung cancer); with cancers that have "targetable mutations" such as ALK-positive lung cancer, ROS1 mutations, and EGFR mutations being more likely to respond to the newer targeted therapies for lung cancer. Your age – Younger people tend to live longer than older people with lung cancer. (Lung cancer in young adults is different in many ways.) Your sex – The life expectancy for a woman with lung cancer is higher at each stage of lung cancer.

Entosis: A Cell-in-Cell Invasion and Death Process
 
02:20
When human cells wander in suspension, free of their normal attachments, many of them launch invasions into their neighbors. These "homeless" cells bore into other cells and hang out inside, where they either die or exit, apparently unscathed. This bizarre process, which the researchers term entosis, appears to underlie a natural phenomenon involving tumor cells inhabiting other tumor cells that pathologists have observed for decades. This may be relevant to cancer if entosis inhibits tumor progression by killing "homeless" cancer cells before they colonize distant sites. This work, from Professor Joan Brugge's lab, appeared in the journal Cell in 2007.

Subscribe by clicking here: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Enzymes like Telomerase and Resveratrol, though not the Fountain of Youth unto themselves, offer tantalizing clues to how we might someday soon unravel the aging process. Question: Do you think the enzyme Telomerase could be used to reverse the aging process in our lifetime? (Submitted by Paul Cellura) Michio Kaku: Paul, Telomerase hit the headlines; however, I think we have to put it into perspective. It is not the fountain of youth; however, it is a significant breakthrough. We have to put it into a much larger perspective. First of all, we know that DNA is sort of like a shoelace. It has plastic tips at the end. Every time a cell reproduces, the tips get shorter and shorter and shorter until finally they fray. And you know that your shoelace, without the plastic tips will simply fall apart. That's what happens inside a cell. A cell, for example, your skin cell, will divide about 60 times, that's called a Hayflick Limit. Then the cell goes into senescence and eventually dies. So in some sense, every cell has a biological clock. It is doomed to die after about 60 reproductions. However, Telomerase can eliminate some of the contraction of the chromosomes and the chromosomes can maintain their length. So at first you may say, "ah-ha! We can now defeat the biological clock." But not so fast, first of all, cancer cells also use Telomerase. Cancer cells are immortal. Cancer cells are immortal and that's precisely why they kill you. Why are cancer cells so dangerous? Because they are immortal. They grow and they grow and they grow until they take over huge chunks of your body, meaning that your bodily functions cannot be performed and you die. So we have to make sure that when you hit ordinary cells with Telomerase that you don't also trigger cancer in the process. Now, also you have to realize that genes are also very essential for the aging process. It turns out that we know what aging is. Aging is the buildup of error. That's all aging is. The build up of genetic and cellular error. And cells begin to age; they begin to get sluggish because genetic mistakes start to build up. Now cells; however, have a repair mechanism. They can repair damage to their cells; otherwise we would all basically rot very soon after birth. However, even the repair mechanisms eventually get gummed up and then the cell really starts to get old as a consequence. So then the question is, can you accelerate cell repair? That is another branch of gerontology which is being looked at using genes and using chemicals to accelerate the repair mechanisms. For example, if I take any organism on the planet Earth from yeast cells to spiders, insects, rabbits, dogs, and even monkeys now. And I reduce their caloric intake by 30%, they live 30% longer. In fact the only organism which has not yet been deliberately tested by scientists are homo sapiens. All the other species obey this basic rule. You starve them to death, they live longer. This is independent of Telomerase. This is a function of the wear and tear that we have on the cells. And this is the only known way of actually deliberately extending the lifespan of any organisms almost at will. Now, what we want is a genetic way of mimicking this mechanism without having to starve yourself because how many people do you know would be willing to starve themselves in order to live 30% longer? Not too many. So then the question is, are there genes that control this process. And the answer is apparently, yes. There's something called the Sirtuin genes, Sir2 being the most prominent of them. They in turn stimulate certain enzymes, among them Resveratrol, which is found in red wine, for example. So this does not mean that drinking red wine or taking Telomerase is the fountain of youth. I don't think that anyone has the fountain of youth yet. What I am saying is, we are now finding pieces of the fountain of youth, tantalizing clues that mean that perhaps in the coming decades, we might be able to actually unravel the aging process. We don't have it yet. Don't go out to the drug store and stock up on these kinds of chemicals and enzymes thinking you're going to live forever. However it is conceivable that in the coming decades we'll come very close to finding it.

Stages Of Ovarian Cancer Symptoms | 8 initial symptoms of ovarian cancer

Stages Of Ovarian Cancer Symptoms | 8 initial symptoms of ovarian cancer Ovarian cancer is one of the highest mortality cancers, but if you discover it early you can raise the survival rate to 95%. Ovarian cancer is called "silent killer". This is because, as with other types of cancer, the disease progresses considerably and subjective symptoms appear after treatment becomes difficult. As most cases are found late, the death rate per patient is the highest among gynecologic cancers. According to a recent report, only 50% of the women diagnosed with ovarian cancer can survive for 5 years from the first diagnosis. It is because there are many cases where cancer is discovered at the stage where it has progressed considerably, but medical experts say that if it is found at an early stage, survival rate can be raised up to 95%. Ovarian cancer can occur in women of any age group, but the risk increases at the age of 50 and reaches its peak at the age of 65. In order not to be too late, it is important to learn about the symptoms that may be a danger signal of ovarian cancer. However, remember that the symptoms listed below may also be related to other health problems, so do not rely on self-judgment, you must receive a doctor's diagnosis without fail.

Leukemia Symptoms -- Stages of the Disease with Warning Signs of each Stage!
 
08:23
http://utahtexans.com/ Click on the link above for a free guide to buying and choosing dietary supplements! In the most basic of definitions leukemia is when damaged blood cells take over the body and allow harmful invaders to do bad things. Almost like if the entire police force of a city decided to all take LSD, and the criminals have nothing to stop them from robbing people and destroying property. The body needs to make billions of blood cells a day to do work. These blood cells are created in a person's bone marrow and there are three types. The first type of blood cell is a red one and its job is to carry oxygen around the body giving it to organs that need it. The second type are white blood cells and there job is to fight infections, and battle harmful invaders like viruses and bacteria. The last ones are platelets and they enable blood to clot with an injury almost like a natural Band-Aid. With leukemia a defective white blood cell known as a cancer cell is created and instead of doing its job it would rather be lazy and rebel. So the body sends out a signal for the cell to kill itself, and the rebel cell decides to ignore it, and it creates copies of itself. These copies continue to grow and overcrowd the normal healthy cells, and less blood cells are created because the body believes it has enough. If a harmful virus or bacteria enters the body the white cells are supposed to stop it from doing harm. Instead of normal healthy white blood cells dealing with it, the lazy cancerous cells go over and make friends with the invader. The harmful invading virus or bacteria begins to spread and gets someone sick. Since the body has defective white blood cells the person who is infected is likely to get sick much more frequently. This could include constantly getting a fever, a runny nose, a cough, and a feeling of wanting to vomit. Next the cancerous cells have been making copies of itself and has not only crowded out the white blood cells, but also the other blood cells. This includes red blood cells, which are supposed to deliver oxygen to where it's needed and eliminate carbon dioxide. Without enough oxygen organs begin to get weaker, just like if you had a difficult time with breathing. This could result in joint and muscle pains along with muscle weakness. These red blood cells also provide color for the skin so without enough of them a person starts to look almost dead, with more white colored skin. This is known as Anemia. There are also not enough platelets and do you know what this means? If someone has a cut it's going to continue to bleed and bleed without stopping. Next something known as bleeding in the skin may take place. This is when many very small red dots appear in the skin on the lower legs. If a person has leukemia the slightest of injuries could result in bruises. Bruises appear when blood vessels break due to an injury and blood leaks out of these vessels resulting in the ugly look of the bruise. Without enough platelets someone could experience blood in their urine or feces. Next blood could come from the nose, gums and teeth frequently. If it's really bad, bleeding could occur in the brain, intestinal tract and kidneys which could be very bad and kill a person. All these symptoms really depend on how fast the cancerous cells are growing. If it's really fast this might be better, since someone is more likely to notice them. Almost like with glaucoma where usually there is a slow reduction in peripheral vision and by the time someone notices it, much permanent damage has been done. This type of leukemia where it grows slowly is known as chronic, and if it grows really rapidly it's known as acute. A lot of cases of Leukemia are found when a doctor orders a few blood tests for an unrelated health issue or for a normal checkup. One great way to detect leukemia would be to continue to get routine checkups, so if you do have it you could more easily eliminate it before it grows. If you're over the age of fifty it should be every year and every 2 to 3 years for everyone else. Once someone knows they have this disease the most common treatments are chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapy and a stem cell transplant. Stem cells are what create the blood cells in the bone marrow. All of these treatments are not really good because they have bad side effects, but eliminating the cancerous cells is the most important priority. You can reduce your chance of getting this health problem by not smoking tobacco, not eating Trans fats and ensuring you're getting all the vitamins you need. If you are interested in taking herbal remedies and dietary supplements for better health, I strongly recommend viewing a free guide I created on this topic. http://utahtexans.com/.

DESCRIPTION: Choline may be the reason egg consumption is associated with prostate cancer progression and death. If you're a long-time follower and some of this sounds familiar, it's because I had to fast-track some of this choline information to offer background for my Dr. Oz Show appearance. A longer video that covers this can be found in Carnitine, Choline, Cancer and Cholesterol: The TMAO Connection (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/carnitine-choline-cancer-and-cholesterol-the-tmao-connection/). In my last video, Eggs and Choline: Something Fishy (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/eggs-and-choline-something-fishy), I talked about what trimethylamine might do to one's body odor. With regard to the prevention of prostate cancer progression, chicken and eggs may be the worst foods to eat, but what might be the best? See my recent video Prostate Cancer Survival: The A/V Ratio (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/prostate-cancer-survival-the-av-ratio).

EARLY SIGNS OF LUNG CANCER TO WATCH OUT FOR
 
06:33
Lung cancer, also known as carcinoma of the lung or pulmonary carcinoma, is a malignant lung tumor characterized by uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. If left untreated, this growth can spread beyond the lung by process of metastasis into nearby tissue or other parts of the body. The vast majority (80–90%) of cases of lung cancer are due to long-term exposure to tobacco smoke. About 10–15% of cases occur in people who have never smoked. These cases are often caused by a combination of genetic factors and exposure to radon gas, asbestos, or other forms of air pollution, including second-hand smoke. Worldwide, lung cancer is the most common cancer among men in terms of both incidence and mortality, and among women has the third highest incidence, and is second after breast cancer in mortality. Learn the signs of lung cancer to catch the disease early and ensure a positive outcome. Below are some early signs of lung cancer according to healthline.com. No Warning 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. While a cough associated with a cold or respiratory infection will go away in a week or two, a persistent cough that lingers can be a possible sign of lung cancer. Don’t be tempted to dismiss a stubborn cough, whether it is dry or mucus-producing, as “just a cough.” 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 has a deeper or hoarse sound, or you are coughing up blood or more mucus than usual, it’s time to make a doctor’s appointment. Breathing Changes Shortness of breath or becoming easily winded are also possible symptoms of lung cancer. This symptom 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 this symptom occurs after climbing the stairs to your house, bringing in groceries, or performing another task you could previously do without finding it hard to breathe, don’t ignore it. Pain in the Chest Area Lung cancer may produce pain in the chest, shoulder, or back area. This 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, pleura (lining around the lungs), 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 lung cancer symptom, which is why it merits your doctor’s attention. If wheezing continues, don’t assume it’s asthma or allergies. Have your doctor confirm what’s causing it. 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 becomes worrisome when it hangs on 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 weight drop may result from cancer cells using energy in the body. It could also result from shifts in the way the body uses food energy. 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. 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 in people with lung cancer are associated with brain metastases. Sometimes, a lung tumor may create pressure on the superior vena cava, which is the large vein that moves blood from the upper body to the heart. This pressure can also trigger headaches. Talk with your doctor if your body shows these symptoms.

Jobs is known to have been treated for pancreatic cancer, the fourth leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. Oncologists say pancreatic cancer is hard to treat because it is difficult to diagnose. The organ is embedded deep in the abdomen, symptoms only become evident in a late stage of the disease.

Thomas Seyfried: Cancer: A Metabolic Disease With Metabolic Solutions
 
54:41
Emerging evidence indicates that cancer is primarily a metabolic disease involving disturbances in energy production through respiration and fermentation. Cancer is suppressed following transfer of the nucleus from the tumor cell to cytoplasm of normal cells containing normal mitochondria. These findings indicate that nuclear genetic abnormalities cannot be responsible for cancer despite commonly held beliefs in the cancer field. The genomic instability observed in tumor cells and all other recognized hallmarks of cancer are considered downstream epiphenomena of the initial disturbance of cellular energy metabolism. The disturbances in tumor cell energy metabolism can be linked to abnormalities in the structure and function of the mitochondria. Cancer growth and progression can be managed following a whole-body transition from fermentable metabolites, primarily glucose and glutamine, to respiratory metabolites, primarily ketone bodies. This transition will reduce tumor vascularity and inflammation while enhancing tumor cell death. A novel “press-pulse” therapeutic strategy is in development for the non-toxic metabolic management of cancer. Malignant brain cancer in preclinical models and humans will be used to illustrate general concepts. As each individual is a unique metabolic entity, personalization of metabolic therapy as a broadbased cancer treatment strategy will require fine-tuning to match the therapy to an individual’s unique physiology. Thomas N. Seyfried received his Ph.D. in Genetics and Biochemistry from the University of Illinois, Urbana, in 1976. He did his undergraduate work at the University of New England, where he recently received the distinguished Alumni Achievement Award. He also holds a Master’s degree in Genetics from Illinois State University. Thomas Seyfried served with distinction in the United States Army’s First Cavalry Division during the Vietnam War and received numerous medals and commendations. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Neurology at the Yale University School of Medicine and then served on the faculty as an Assistant Professor in Neurology. Other awards and honors have come from such diverse organizations as the American Oil Chemists Society, the National Institutes of Health, The American Society for Neurochemistry, and the Ketogenic Diet Special Interest Group of the American Epilepsy Society. Dr. Seyfried previously served as Chair, Scientific Advisory Committee for the National Tay-Sachs and Allied Diseases Association and presently serves on several editorial boards, including those for Nutrition & Metabolism, Neurochemical Research, the Journal of Lipid Research, and ASN Neuro, where he is a Senior Editor. Dr. Seyfried has over 150 peer-reviewed publications and is the author of the book “Cancer as a Metabolic Disease: On the Origin, Management, and Prevention of Cancer (Wiley Press).”

ESMO 2017 Highlights in Lung Cancer: A Paradigm Shift
 
09:36
Julien Mazières states that this meeting has been very important for the lung cancer community with practice changing results in the treatment of many NSCLC patients. The PACIFIC study in locally advanced NSCLC shows the activity of an anti-PD-L1 agent in a setting where we haven't seen any progress in a decade. Luis Paz-Ares reports an 11 months difference in median PFS, with consistent results from prior studies and manageable toxicities. It opens a new standard of care for this setting. The results from the FLAURA study are very impressive with a primary end point of 54% reduction in the risk of death or progression, reports Suresh Ramalingam. It should convince every physician to use osimertinib as first-line treatment for EGFR mutated patients. Additional data on survival and resistance mechanisms would be important to anticipate further lines of treatment. The BRAF V600E mutation is rare but patients with metastatic NSCLC should be tested for this. The C branch of the study presented by David Planchard showed excellent results with the combination of dabrafenib plus trametinib which should become the standard of care for these patients. The IFCT-0302 trial addresses the very important and practical routine question of early stage lung cancer patients’ follow-up after thoracic surgery. Virginie Westeel reports that additional CT scans did not show any benefit in the first 24 months but helped detect secondary lung cancer after 2 years.

Valter Longo, Ph.D. on Fasting-Mimicking Diet & Fasting for Longevity, Cancer & Multiple Sclerosis
 
01:18:16
Dr. Rhonda Patrick speaks with Dr. Valter Longo, a professor of gerontology and biological sciences and director of the longevity institute at the University of Southern California. Dr. Longo has made huge contributions to the field of aging, including the role of fasting and diet in longevity and healthspan in humans as well as metabolic fasting therapies for the treatment of human diseases. ▶︎ Get the show notes! https://www.foundmyfitness.com/episodes/valter-longo In this conversation, Rhonda and Valter discuss... • The effects of prolonged fasting, which refers to 2-3 day fasting intervals in mice and 4-5 days in humans. • Dr. Longo’s work on the fasting-mimicking diet, which is 5 day restricted diet that is meant to simulate some of the biological effects of prolonged fasting while still allowing some food. • How clinical trials have demonstrated efficacy for this diet for type 2 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and cancer patients. • Fasting as an inducer of differential stress resistance, where it can simultaneously make cancer cells more sensitive to death while also making healthy cells more resistant to these same death stimuli (such as chemotherapy) which might otherwise induce cell death amongst healthy cells as collateral damage. • Fasting as a biological state which humans historically experienced with extreme regularity and we may ultimately need in order to mitigate various disease states. • The effects of prolonged fasting on the immune system, namely, how it clears away damaged white blood cells via autophagy and how this causes hematopoietic stem cells to self renew and make more stem cells and also produce new blood cells to fully replenish the white blood cell population. • How prolonged fasting causes a shift in the immune cell population towards one that is more representative of youth by normalizing the ratio of myeloid cells to lymphoid cells. • The positive effects of prolonged fasting and the fasting-mimicking diet on markers of systemic inflammation, blood glucose levels and other aging biomarkers. • The conclusions of Dr. Longo & Dr. Marcus Bock’s research comparing 1 week of the fasting-mimicking diet followed by 6 months of mediterranean diet to six months of a ketogenic diet in people with multiple sclerosis. • The strange, somewhat paradoxical role of autophagy genes in cancer progression and some of the open questions surrounding the exact role that these genes are playing. • Dr. Longo’s high level thoughts on metformin as an anti-aging drug. • How the growth hormone/IGF-1 axis is one of the most important genetic pathways in aging from yeast to worms to mice to humans. ▶︎ Follow Dr. Longo on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/profvalterlongo ▶︎ Visit ProLon FMD: http://www.prolonfmd.com/ ▶︎ Visit L-Nutra: http://www.l-nutra.com/ ▶︎ Follow Dr. Longo on Amazon for his new book (coming soon): https://www.amazon.com/Valter-Longo/e/B00K17Z408/ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_1?qid=1474851961&sr=8-1 Links related to FoundMyFitness: ▶︎ Subscribe on YouTube: http://youtube.com/user/FoundMyFitness?sub_confirmation=1 ▶︎ Join my weekly email newsletter: http://www.foundmyfitness.com/?sendme=lifestyle-heuristic ▶︎ Crowdfund more videos: http://www.patreon.com/foundmyfitness ▶︎ Subscribe to the podcast: http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/foundmyfitness/id818198322 ▶︎ Twitter: http://twitter.com/foundmyfitness ▶︎ Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/foundmyfitness ▶︎ Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/foundmyfitness

10 symptoms of cancer that many ignore | Sign and symptoms of cancer Prevention and early detection are fundamental in the fight against cancer. For that reason, in case of any symptom that seems abnormal, we should go to a specialist who values ​​it. One of the main ways to fight cancer is to know how to detect it in time . Sometimes, because we are very busy, we forget about the annual medical check-ups and we let go weeks before going to the clinic if we have any pain. Did you know that cancer has initial symptoms that many of us ignore ? In this video, we tell you so that you are more attentive. Why is it necessary to detect cancer early? More and more people suffer from this disease, which in many cases causes death. Cancer diagnoses are commonplace in hospitals and clinics. Late detection of symptoms is one of the reasons why treatments do not give good results. The longer it takes to stop the progression of cancer cells, the greater the spread of the disease from different parts of the body. Prevention and timely diagnosis are two of the most useful tools to cope with cancer . New medications and treatments allow patients to continue with their lives and eliminate the disease with less chance of relapse.........For more watch video..

Combine These AMAZING FOODS to STOP CANCER, Oncologist Noticed! How to Fight Cancer with Foods?
 
13:57
Top 12 Cancer-Fighting Foods! Are You Eating Enough Cancer-Fighting Foods Every Day? Cancer is recognized worldwide to be a major health problem affecting millions of people each year. More than 1 million people in the United States alone get cancer each year, and as of 2009, a total of 562,340 deaths from cancer were projected to occur in the United States yearly. The main reason for such a high mortality rate from cancer is due to abnormal behaviors of certain cells, which usually results in cancer cell progression, tumor growth and metastasis. Many cancer survivors have been fortunate enough to use a combination of natural cancer treatments themselves at home, in conjunction with conventional medical treatments, in order to overcome their disease. This duel approach can help support the entire body and mind in the healing process that can sometimes be long and very difficult. Today, the early combination of chemotherapy and nutrition therapy is able to save the lives of thousands of cancer patients. Inflammation is the underlying issue that dictates cancerous tumor initiation, progression and growth. Studies suggest that 30 percent to 40 percent of all kinds of cancer can be prevented with a healthy lifestyle and dietary measures! And other sources claim that this number is in fact much higher, with around 75 percent of cancer cases being lifestyle-related. Practicing strategies that are fully within your own control — including things like eating a healing diet, vegetable juicing, consuming probiotic foods, taking immune-boosting supplements, busting stress and practicing healing prayer — can make you feel more empowered and hopeful when battling a disease, which goes a very long way in the healing process. Leafy Green Vegetables Leafy greens are the cornerstone of any healthy diet since they’re exceptionally rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and enzymes, yet very low in calories, fats, sodium and other toxins. Leafy greens of all kinds — nutritious spinach, kale, collard greens, romaine, arugula salad, watercress, etc. — are rich in antioxidants known to combat cancer, including vitamin C and beta-carotene (a type of vitamin A). And the benefits keep coming; as natural sources of glucosinolates, they also contain antibacterial and antiviral properties, inactivate carcinogens, help reprogram cancer cells to die off, and prevent tumor formation and metastasis. These powerhouse chemicals are known to break down during the chewing and digestion process into biologically active compounds that prevent cancer cells growth, which are referred to as indoles, thiocyanates and isothiocyanates. Isothiocyanates (ITCs) found in leafy greens, which are made from glucosinolates, have been reported to help detox your body at the cellular level. Add a handful of leafy greens to your lunch and dinner to increase your nutrient intake; to make obtaining them simpler, try juicing vegetables for near perfect health. Vegetable juices are very easy to digest and make yourself at home. The Gerson diet meal plan even advises cancer patients to drink 13 glasses of freshly prepared juice daily! Cruciferous Vegetables Cruciferous vegetables are known to be powerful cancer killers and some of the best vitamin C foods widely available. Many are rich in glutathione, known as the body’s “master antioxidant” since it has high free-radical-scavenging abilities. Nearly all members of the brassica family of cruciferous vegetables are nutrient-dense sources of a family of phytochemicals called isothiocyanates that are linked to cancer prevention. In addition to isothiocyanates, cruciferous veggies like cabbage and broccoli also contain sulforaphanes and indoles — two types of strong antioxidants and stimulators of detoxifying enzymes that protect the structure of DNA. Add one or two kinds — including broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage or Brussels sprouts — to three mostly plant-based meals daily in the form of roasted veggies, soups or stir fries, or dip them into hummus or Greek yogurt for a healthy, fast snack. Additionally, many other vegetables are beneficial for lowering cancer risk, including onions, zucchini, asparagus, artichokes, peppers, carrots and beets. 3. Berries The ORAC scores of nearly all berries are very high, making them some of the top high-antioxidant foods in the world. Blueberries, raspberries, cherries, strawberries, goji berries, camu camu and blackberries are easy to find and use in numerous types of recipes — which is good news considering they supply vitamin C, vitamin A and gallic acid, a powerful antifungal/antiviral agent that increases immunity. Berries are especially rich in proanthocyanidin antioxidants, which have been observed to have anti-aging properties in several animal studies and are capable of lowering free radical damage. High amounts of phenols, zeaxanthin, lycopene, cryptoxanthin, lutein and polysaccharides are other berry benefits. Less familiar “superfoods” mulberry,...

Staging of Lung Cancer
 
03:39
Learn more about lung cancer at http://www.YouAndLungCancer.com This animation explains how lung cancer staging is a system that doctors use to describe or classify the overall size and spread of the main tumor. Doctors need lung cancer staging information to help plan a patient’s treatment. Lung cancer is classified into several stages - the higher the stage the more advanced the spread of the disease and the more aggressive the treatment strategy. In Stage 0 the cancer is only in the top layers of the cells lining the lung’s air passages and this is the easiest stage to treat. In Stage IV the cancer has spread to the other lung, lymph nodes outside the lungs, and other parts of the body.

Getting a Stage 4 Cancer Diagnosis
 
05:01
Hey, hey, hey... I am Eden Koz, founder of a mindfulness, mediation and wellbeing company (called Just Be out of Akron, OH). Oh gosh, here I share my video which was recorded for friends/family/Just Be community for Facebook in the summer of 2016 upon being diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer. The cancer turned out to be a rare, rare infectious disease called Nocardia beijingensis. The first case of Nocardia beijingensis in the US (as far as I know) was reported in 2014. This is potentially the first case again in the US where this infection has gone to the brain. By the way, the biopsy of the mass in my lung which I speak of, didn't work... so surgery was the only option of which there were two brain surgeries. The infection almost caused death ~ twice! In this I share my outlook... which comes from my spiritual and grounding practice of meditation. To give a bit more background, if you are interested, all of this happened in a week. Everything started with a headache that wouldn't go away on Monday which quickly translated into dizziness and then to not feeling good AT ALL. I went to doc in a box on Friday then to emergency room on Sat morning where I was there rushed to a hospital. CAT scan showed single mass in my lung and three in my head. At the time of this writing, I am eight months from surgeries and doing most excellent.

Regulated lysosomal exocytosis mediates cancer progression

Regulated lysosomal exocytosis mediates cancer progression. Eda Machado et al (2015), Science Advances http://dx.doi.org/10.1126/sciadv.1500603 Understanding how tumor cells transition to an invasive and drug-resistant phenotype is central to cancer biology, but the mechanisms underlying this transition remain unclear. We show that sarcomas gain these malignant traits by inducing lysosomal exocytosis, a ubiquitous physiological process. During lysosomal exocytosis, the movement of exocytic lysosomes along the cytoskeleton and their docking at the plasma membrane involve LAMP1, a sialylated membrane glycoprotein and target of the sialidase NEU1. Cleavage of LAMP1 sialic acids by NEU1 limits the extent of lysosomal exocytosis. We found that by down-regulation of NEU1 and accumulation of oversialylated LAMP1, tumor cells exacerbate lysosomal exocytosis of soluble hydrolases and exosomes. This facilitates matrix invasion and propagation of invasive signals, and purging of lysosomotropic chemotherapeutics. In Arf−⁄− mice, Neu1 haploinsufficiency fostered the development of invasive, pleomorphic sarcomas, expressing epithelial and mesenchymal markers, and lysosomal exocytosis effectors, LAMP1 and Myosin-11. These features are analogous to those of metastatic, pleomorphic human sarcomas, where low NEU1 levels correlate with high expression of lysosomal exocytosis markers. In a therapeutic proof of principle, we demonstrate that inhibiting lysosomal exocytosis reversed invasiveness and chemoresistance in aggressive sarcoma cells. Thus, we reveal that this unconventional, lysosome-regulated pathway plays a primary role in tumor progression and chemoresistance.
