Cancer is one of the most deadly diseases in the Modern World. Thousands of people surrender to death induced by the cancer in a single day. People are too frightened on this fatal disease.
The highest death rate due to cancer is reported in the United States of America (USA). On an average, about 1500 people die due to cancer in the US. Why cancer is so dangerous that it kills so many people ?
Before that let us know something about cancer
What is cancer?
Cancer is a disease caused by the uncontrolled division of abnormal cells in a particular part of the body.
The peculiar part of the body results in the various types of cancer like adrenal cancer, bone cancer, lung cancer, leukemia and so on. Cancer is found to be dreadly and fatal, even though, the technology is so much progressed. Chemotherapy and bone marrow transplant are the two most effective treatments performed worldwide against cancer.
How cancer is caused?
Cancer is caused when cells in the body start to grow rapidly and doesn’t die even after the actual cell lifetime ; instead they continuously grow and divide to form a tumour which later spreads to the various parts of the body .
If cancer is found in the initial stage, it can be taken out and cured by a surgery. If it’s matured, it will have a tendency to move to other parts of the body.
The movement of cancer cells from organ to organ is called “metastasis”. It requires a medium in order to move to other part, so it enters into the blood or lymphatic vessels through which it reaches every part of the body. This process is called intravasation. From the next organ, it again starts to grow and divide to form a new tumour within a short period and it scatters all over the body and causing cancer which cannot be cured easily by a surgery.
Cancer is a very grievous disease – Why?
?It doesn’t show symptoms or it shows very few symptoms: One of the main reason for cancer is that the victim doesn’t show any kind of symptoms during the early stage of the tumour.
Some of the common symptoms of cancer are listed below:
- Unexplained weight loss
But people usually neglect these symptoms as they are common for other diseases too. Hence, it causes for the spreading of tumour and thereby causes cancer which leads to death.
?The Cancer cells or Malignant cells spread very fast: It is another reason why cancer is dangerous. It causes destruction of many people.
Once the tumor develops and enters the blood or lymph vessels it reaches all over the body and grows everywhere.
Leukaemia is one of the fastest spreading cancer.
?Lack of availability of better medical facilities (in some regions): In some underdeveloped countries, there is a lack of accessibility of good medical facilities and hence the death rate is high in such places as compared to developed countries.However, US has the highest death rate.
?There is no proper treatment for cancer: Even the technological advancement in research field couldn’t bring up a good curing method for cancer.
The cancer at its later stage cannot be treated perfectly and it causes to death, which makes it one of the most dangerous diseases in the whole world!
?All these factors cause morbidity in the victim: When the victim come to know about all these facts, it makes him overwhelmed. Thus, it again causes a bad effect on the mental health of the patient.
How can we decrease the risk of developing cancer?
“Prevention is better than cure”
