What causes cancer?
Cancer cells develop because of damage to DNA, a substance in every cell that directs all activity of the cell. Usually when DNA becomes faulty, the body is able to repair it; however, some times it is not repaired and the cell becomes abnormal. Scientists are working to better understand what causes DNA to become damaged. I hereditary forms of cancer, people inherit damaged DNA, which accounts for inherited cancers.
More often, though, cancer is caused by exposure to carcinogenic substances present in environmental (UV rays, pollution) or individual behaviors such as smoking.
What are the signs and symptoms of cancer?
The signs and symptoms vary depending on the specific kind of cancer, but there are some general signs and symptoms that may indicate a need for testing. These include fatigue, a sore that does not heal, nagging cough, pain, unexplained weight loss, fever and changes on the skin. Although there could be other reasons for these signs and symptoms, anyone experiencing these should consult their physician.

Stats prove that Second Opinion can Impact Cancer Care

45%

A study published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings last year also found between 45% of second opinions spurred a major change in diagnosis or treatment. Patients generally believed that second opinions are valuable and life altering decision.

35%

Another study published in the American Journal of Medicine found that about 35% of people choose to get second opinions after they received a diagnosis in order to identify information that may have been missed or misinterpreted during the initial diagnosis.

15%

Experts estimate that diagnostic errors happen in 10% to 15% of cases, even in the US. The figure may be higher in countries like India where quality and accreditations are not mandatory and thus causing incorrect treatment.

Hereditary Cancer Testing

Cancer is a condition triggered by mutations (changes) in the genes of a cell that result in uncontrolled, abnormal cell growth. Some families have gene mutations that are passed down from one generation to the next. Genetic testing may help you determine if your cancer was due to an inherited gene mutation and if you are at an increased risk of developing a second cancer. Hereditary risk assessment During your initial evaluation at PATHSOS, you will fill out a family history questionnaire, which includes questions regarding your personal and family history of cancer. This information will help determine if you are a candidate for genetic testing.  The following are some red flags for a hereditary cancer predisposition: Family member with a known inherited gene mutation  Breast, colon or uterine cancer diagnosed under the age of 50 Ovarian cancer diagnosed at any age Two or more close family members who have had the same type of cancer  The same type of cancer in several generations of the family  How it works Genetic testing consists of a mouthwash or blood test. Analysis of the sample can determine if you inherited a gene mutation that contributed to your diagnosis of cancer. Genetic testing might also help determine if you are at greater risk of developing same cancer again or of developing another type of cancer. Results of genetic testing Genetic testing can help you make informed decisions about how to manage future risks of cancer. For example, if it is determined that you are at greater risk than the “average” patient for breast cancer recurrence, we may recommend adding breast MRIs to your routine screenings. Also, if you are a woman who has breast cancer and you find out that you have an inherited risk, you may be at an increased risk for developing other cancers.  We will present you with options to reduce that risk. The test results can help you develop a plan of care individualized just for you. Test results can also be of great value to your family members. Before and after genetic testing, we can organize a genetic counseling session.

Am I at Risk of Breast Cancer? - PathSOS

According to the World Health Organization, Breast Cancer is the most common form of cancer diagnosed in women and has become the leading cause of mortality amongst women globally. The incidence of breast cancer is rising sharply in developing countries due to changes in reproductive factors, increasing urbanization, adoption of western lifestyles, and increased life expectancy. Thirty percent of the breast cancers in India are in the second or third decade of life and they are resistant to the conventional mode of therapies. Breast cancer starts when abnormal cells lining the breast grow in an uncontrolled way. This cancerous tumor is a mass of cells that usually felt as a lump that destroys nearby tissue. TYPES OF BREAST CANCER Ductal Carcinoma- The abnormal cells lining the milk ducts that carry milk from the lobules of the breast to the nipple. The texture of the tumor is hard. Lobular Carcinoma- It begins in the cells that line the lobules (milk glands) of the breast. They are slightly firm or hard tumor texture. Invasive Breast Cancer- It has spread outside the lining of the ducts or lobes into the nearby breast tissue through the bloodstream and lymph nodes. SYMPTOMS OF BREAST CANCER Breast cancer can have a number of symptoms, but the first noticeable symptom often appears when a tumor grows large enough to be felt as a lump in the breast or when cancer spreads to surrounding tissues and organs. Most breast changes are not cancerous however it's always best to have them checked by a health care professional experienced in diagnosing breast diseases. Breast cancer symptoms -  • Sudden nipple discharge with the blood streak • A lump or swelling like a hard knot in either of your armpits • A change in skin texture of your breast such as dimpling or puckering swollen breast        with or without a rash on or around your nipple • Change in the appearance of your nipple, such as inverted nipple• Persistent pain in your breast or your armpit   BREAST CANCER SCREENING Screening tests help find breast cancer before any symptoms develop. Mammographic screening: It is the best tool for doctors to screen healthy women for an early breast lesion however in some cases mammogram might fail to detect some breast cancers. Breast ultrasound: Breast Ultrasound is useful because it can determine whether a new breast lump is a solid mass or a fluid-filled cyst. Biopsy: Biopsy is the only confirmative way to make a diagnosis of breast cancer. During the biopsy, a small sample of breast tissue is sent for laboratory testing where experts determine whether the cells are cancerous or not. Reasons for seeking a Second Opinion Cancer is a serious disease and its care requires a collaborative approach. Nowadays getting a second opinion is considered an essential and necessary component of one’s health care plan to feel more confirm about your diagnosis and treatment plan. • Diagnosed with a rare type of cancer.• Unclear test results about the type and location of the cancer• You want to hear from experts for best treatment approaches • To help you get a better hold on your condition and give you peace of mind• You want different views about how to best manage cancer. At PathSOS we strive to give the most accurate diagnosis that our patients can trust and doctors can have confidence in our guiding vision is giving cancer patients a better chance at the cure by providing world-class online second opinion service at home.

5 Tips to Prevent Medical Errors - PathSOS

 Medical errors happen when something that was planned doesn’t work out, or when the wrong plan was used in the first place. Medical errors can occur at any time during patient care: in the diagnostic stage, treatment planning, surgery, and medications or during procedures. Most errors result from problems created by the fragmented healthcare system, especially in India. This lack of communication between patients and doctors and various medical facilities breaks the information flow. This causes important information to be lost somewhere. Also, the labs and treating doctors do not communicate adequately which may result in misdiagnosis or incomplete diagnosis that may compromise patient care. In India, errors also happen when doctors and patients don’t communicate clearly. For example, due to the extra workload, doctors may not have enough time to help their patients make informed decisions. This is especially important when discussing options for how to treat cancer best.  Research has shown that involved and informed patients are more likely to do what they need to do to make the treatment work as well as possible.  Tips to prevent medical errors. Informed patients have better treatment outcomes. Diagnostic Errors are one of the leading causes of medical errors Keep your records carefully and show them to your treating doctor on a regular basis. Take written prescriptions from your doctor every time you visit.
