Colon Cancer Is Curable

The River War specialist Mary Lang-Lengton said last Thursday at the Club the Province, in the symposium Prevention and treatment of colon cancer, that a liberal intake of red meat, processed meats and foods with a high presence of fats, While reduced consumption of fruits and vegetables, increases the likelihood of colon cancer.

The meeting was organized by the Spanish Association Against Cancer, on the occasion of the celebration last March 31 Day of the disease. Colorectal cancer deaths in Spain are second in the ranking of deaths from cancer in both men and women. The celebration in March this year the European month of Colon Cancer has again underlined the importance of the disease.

For months is visible on billboards and bus shelters, and other advertising media, the campaign of the Alliance for the Prevention of Colon Cancer engaging more than a dozen medical and scientific societies. “Colon cancer is curable in 90 percent of cases if detected early,” said the message signed with several notorious image of Spanish society.
Early detection is essential in this type of tumors, as in other cancers. But perhaps even more the primary prevention of colon cancer as summarized in a healthy lifestyle.

“Diet is key,” said Maria Guerra del Río Lang-Lenton, Deputy Medical Gastroenterology, University Hospital of Gran Canaria Doctor Negrin. “The lifestyle is crucial in the prevention of cancerous diseases of the digestive area and power, definitely,” said the specialist at Club La Province.

Particular Skin Cancer Heal Without Treatment

Extremely rare, but true: a particular type of skin cancer is able to heal spontaneously without any treatment. Its genetic origin has been identified, which could help the search to discover new cancer therapies.

A tumor that expresses often means the beginning of a long struggle against cancer, based on surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy … Therefore the very idea of a cancer cure by itself is somewhat original … but it does exist! This is a skin cancer, very rare, called keratoacanthoma, Ferguson-Smith epithelioma or squamous multiple spontaneously cured (MSSE).

Characterized by the sudden appearance of a tumor at the skin cancer is composed of keratinizing squamous cells, the very ones responsible for the formation of the upper layers of the epidermis. It usually appears during childhood or adolescence or young adulthood, usually on the head. If it heals gradually, leaving more or less visible scars, new tumors often recur periodically.

SPAIN, third largest SMOKERS

SPAIN, third largest SMOKERS


“In fact, until 2000, Spain was at the bottom of Europe in the number of women smokers, but now ranks third.|

In this sense, experts say that the high prevalence should be a compelling reason, not only to enhance smoking cessation plans, regardless of gender, but also to urge the government to achieve greater political commitment to cancer research In order to find new treatments that achieve a cure or improve survival and quality of life of patients.

In his opinion, further steps should target the development of innovation aimed at the definition of clinical criteria and molecular imaging that can identify individuals with higher risk of lung cancer, the development of screening programs as efficient as possible and research of new molecules which may play a role in this struggle.

Smoking Are No The Only Lung Cancer Triggerer

Lung cancer triggers not only because of smoking. A number of carcinogenic substances such as asbestos, arsenic, chromate, nickel, chloromethyl ether, radiation, and pollution also can cause lung cancer.


About 90 percent of cases of lung cancer in men and 70 percent in women are due to smoking habits. The more smoke of cigarettes enter the lung, the greater the risk for lung cancer. The cause is because tobacco smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals, and most are carcinogenic and cause cancer.


Two major carcinogenic substances in cigarette tobacco are nitrosamines and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. However, cigarette is not the only cause of lung cancer.

Many who inhaled substances in the workplace which are carcinogenic. For example, asbestos, arsenic, chromate, nickel, chloromethyl ethers, mustard gas, and coke oven emission and radiation can cause lung cancer.

Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon has prostate cancer and will miss late-session votes

Prostate cancer news collection.


PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon has prostate cancer and will miss late-session votes that could include approval of an arms treaty with Russia and repeal of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” law on gays in the military, he said Thursday.


The 61-year-old Democrat said the cancer is in its early stage, diagnosed after his annual physical examination in late November. He said he scheduled surgery for Monday at Johns Hopkins Hospital, expecting the Senate to be in recess by then.


“However, it now appears that I will be missing votes tomorrow and possibly next week,” he said in a statement.


Wyden has surgery preparation scheduled Friday but would be available for votes on the weekend, said a spokeswoman, Jennifer Hoelzer.


On the congressional agenda are a government appropriations bill, a new arms treaty with Russia and legislation to allow openly gay servicemembers to remain in the military, but aides said the schedule is so fluid it’s not certain what votes Wyden would miss.


Regan Lachapelle, a spokeswoman for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, said time is too short for the Senate to adjust its schedule to make sure Wyden is on the floor for critical votes, and it’s not clear that his votes would be make-or-break for measures such as the repeal of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy or the arms treaty.

Smoking ups death risk due to breast cancer

A new study has revealed the women who smoke or have a history of smoking are at 39 percent higher risk of death due to breast cancer.


Although smoking is associated with lung cancer and implicated in several other cancers, it is unclear what effect smoking has on breast cancer, said Dejana Braithwaite of the University of California.


“Specifically, it is unclear how long women live following breast cancer diagnosis and whether smoking increases the risk of death because of breast cancer progression or whether there is an association between smoking and life expectancy following breast cancer diagnosis that works through affecting non-breast cancer causes of death,” she said.


Braithwaite and colleagues enrolled 2,265 multi-ethnic women diagnosed with breast cancer between 1997 and 2000. Researchers examined whether smoking affected death from breast cancer, non-breast cancer related causes and death from all causes.


Results showed that 164 deaths from breast cancer and 120 deaths from non-breast cancer causes occurred during follow-up.


Women who were current or past smokers and also had a HER2-negative tumour subtype had a 61 percent increased risk for breast cancer death compared with those who never smoked.


“The implication of this research is that it is important for physicians to improve smoking cessation efforts, especially among women newly diagnosed with breast cancer, in order to improve breast cancer specific outcomes and overall health outcomes,” said Braithwaite.


The findings were presented at the Ninth Annual AACR Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research Conference.
