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.

Cancer Vaccine

A Vaccine is a substance which is used to revive the production of antibodies and provide immunity against one or many diseases, that are prepared from the causative agent of a disease, its products, or a synthetic substitute, which act as an antigen without being inducing the disease. Cancer Vaccine (shot) is a vaccine available to treat certain kinds of cancer.  It treats the already existing cancer or prevents the development of cancer. These vaccines are broadly classified into 1. Cancer prevention Vaccine 2. Cancer treatment Vaccine Cancer prevention vaccine works in a way to prevent the human body from acquiring cancer from other diseases. The HPV vaccine, used against human papillomavirus, is used to work against cancers like cervical, vaginal, vulvar cancer and other genital cancers. Hepatitis B vaccine works against liver cancer. Cancer treatment vaccines are called therapeutic vaccines or autologous cancer vaccines, meaning derived from one’s own cancer cells. These also have an immunotherapic effect. These pump up the body’s defense mechanism. By introducing one or more antigens into the body an immune response is created which ultimately kills the potential cancer cells. Cancer treatment vaccines are different as they target the immune system to attack cancerous cells which are active in the body. These vaccines also- 1. Prevent cancer from coming back 2. Destroys any other cancer cells which are still in the body after other treatments have ended 3. Stop a tumor from growing or spreading The very first FDA approved cancer vaccine was sipuleucel-T (Provenge).  It is customized to each patient and was designed to be stimulated by a prostatic acid phosphatase, an antigen found on prostate cancer cases. The first FDA-approved oncolytic virus therapy, talimogene laherparepvec (T-VEC, or Imlygic). This is based on the herpes simplex virus. The virus affects both cancer and normal cells, but in cancer cells when the T-VEC is injected, the cells burst and die. The cells which are dying releases new viruses, GM-CSF, and a variety of tumor-specific antigens that can revive an immune response against cancer cells throughout the body. The most promising BC vaccines currently available are  NeuVax, AVX901, and INO-1400. In recent new, Virus-like-particles (VLP), a morphological virus-like identified nanostructure have been studied that overcome the immunosuppressive state of the tumor microenvironment and break self-tolerance to elicit strong cytotoxic lymphocyte activity which is some crucial factors forth both virus clearance and destruction of cancerous cells. This makes them ideal to be cancer vaccine platforms. Then there are other types, 1. Dendritic cell vaccines, made from dendritic cells are grown in a lab together with cancer cells which stimulate the immune system to attack the cancer cell. 2. DNA vaccines are made with bits of DNA from cancer cells making the cells of the immune system better at destroying cancer cells. 3. Anti-idiotype vaccines help stimulates the body to produce antibodies. 4. Whole tumor vaccines are the one which uses the whole cancer cell, not just an antigen, to make the vaccine

Breast Cancer Prevention in Women

Breast cancer is the type of cancer that has a valid preventive strategy if we’re talking about active prevention. There are about 1.38 million new cases and 458 000 deaths from breast cancer each year. Early diagnosis is a cornerstone for breast cancer care. An old saying comes true, “Prevention is better than cure” In Breast cancer, prevention does things close to a miracle. Starting from the health baits we follow to the external factors, like environment, there are several causative factors that interfere with women’s healthy bodies and make way for cancer. There are a few measures that women can take to limit their chances of getting breast cancer to save themselves from all the unnecessary health issues that come with it. Here is all that you can do to prevent your risk of Breast cancer- 1.    Limit consumption of alcohol 2.    Quit smoking 3.    Stay in a stress-free environment; be stress-free at all times. 4.    Limit or quit self-medication 5.    Consume high fiber foods 6.    Limit consumption of unhealthy fats or in other words, junk food. 7.    Limit your exposure to radiation zones 8.    Control your weight 9.    Try and refrain your exposure to environmental pollution 10.  Limit your hormone therapy 11.  Having a healthy immune system in order to fight off infections that make way for potential breast cancer cause factors 12.   Never forget to breastfeed   The World Health Organization(WHO) promotes comprehensive breast cancer control programmes as part of national cancer control plans. The early detection strategies for low- and middle-income countries which are recommended- 1.  Detection of early signs and symptoms by awareness and 2.  Routine Screening by clinical breast examination in demonstration areas.   Spreading awareness on the breast cancer issue and the process to control as well as advocating for appropriate policies and programmes are key strategies of population-based breast cancer control Mammography screening is costly and is feasible only in countries with good health infrastructure that can afford a long-term programme. Death percentage is higher in low-income countries because of lack of awareness.  Hence, awareness and preventive measure can go a long way in helping the women of such countries. Early diagnosis only focuses on reducing the proportion of patients who are diagnosed at later stages.  Hence, for in order to get more out fighting out this disease, one should consult with their family members and discuss the possibility of carrying the breast cancer gene and get into preventive actions starting from their childhood. For cases other than, genetic breast cancer, taking good care into what goes into their bodies and what is around their bodies is a vital duo of steps to fight the disease off from before it makes its way into the mammary glands and takes the shape of cancer.

Hair loss during Cancer Treatment and its Regrowth

Alopecia or hair loss is the side effects of cancer treatments like chemotherapy, targeted therapy, radiation therapy, or bone marrow/stem cell transplants. This hair loss occurs due to the medication and treatments that affect or harm the cells that help hair grow two or three weeks into the treatment cycle and the intensity of fall tends to increase after a month. Not all cancer treatments cause hair fall and rarely is there a permanent hair loss due to cancer treatment. Usually, the hair falls and regrows and the situation is temporary, as long as the treatment goes on. In some cases, the hair grows thinner and drier or may not fall out completely or permanently. The intensity and interval of hair fall depend on various factors and varies from person to person as no person undergoes same treatment plans, the dosage varies, side effects may cancel out the impact of the treatment, acceptance of the treatment by the body may differ. Chemotherapy: The Chemo drugs that have been known to cause hair fall are 1.    Altretamine (Hexalen) 2.    Carboplatin (Paraplatin) 3.    Cisplatin (Platinol) 4.    Cyclophosphamide (Neosar) 5.    Docetaxel (Taxotere) 6.    Doxorubicin (Adriamycin, Doxil) 7.    Epirubicin (Ellence) 8.    Fluorouracil (5-FU) 9.    Gemcitabine (Gemzar) 10.  Idarubicin (Idamycin) 11.  Ifosfamide (Ifex) 12. Paclitaxel (multiple brand names) 13.  Vincristine (Marqibo, Vincasar) 14.  Vinorelbine (Alocrest, Navelbine)   Radiation Therapy: In this treatment method the hair fall is seen in the regions that are exposed to radiation. Targeted Therapy:  The following are the therapy drugs used that cause alopecia in patients 1.   Afatinib (Gilotrif) 2.  Cetuximab (Erbitux) 3.   Dabrafenib (Tafinlar) 4.   Dasatinib (Sprycel) 5.   Erlotinib (Tarceva) 6.    Ibrutinib (Imbruvica) 7.    Imatinib (Gleevec, Glivec) 8.    Nilotinib (Tasigna) 9.    Panitumumab (Vectibix) 10.  Sonidegib (Odomzo) 11.   Sorafenib (Nexavar) 12.   Trametinib (Mekinist) 13.   Vemurafenib (Zelboraf) 14.   Vismodegib (Erivedge)   Hormonal Therapy:  This treatment method doesn’t lead to hair fall until some months or a year into the treatment cycle. This method doesn’t cause complete hair loss. The following are more likely to cause hair fall 1.     Tamoxifen (Nolvadex) 2.      Anastrozole (Arimidex) 3.      Letrozole (Femara) 4.      Fulvestrant (Faslodex) 5.      Octreotide (Sandostatin)   Prevention- With effects like hair fall making cancer obvious in patients, they resort to measures like prevention and management of the hair loss. Although there are only therapeutic methods available like decreased drug delivery it leads to adverse side effects like headache, nerve compression, claustrophobia. Scalp cooling/Scalp hyperthermia is one way to reduce the effect of chemo on the hair.  A closely fitted cap with chilled liquid is worn during chemotherapy. As the temperature of the cap is low this helps reduce the effect of chemo on hair. Minoxidil (Rogaine)  is a drug that helps hair regrowth after the hair loss cycle stops during chemotherapy. The drug is proven to work and is applied before and after the chemo sessions. There are no clear methods to prevent hair loss in cancer patients who undergo treatment but there are methods offered to manage hair loss. 1.    Avoid trauma to the hair like bleaching, using hair dryers at high temperatures,   curling irons, and other hair styling accessories. 2.    Use gentle hair care products on hair throughout chemo 3.    Use satin pillow while sleeping as it doesn’t affect or break the hair strands like regular cotton pillows 4.    Cut hair short 5.     Shaving the head may help in getting a wig or hairpiece 6.     Use sunscreen, hat, scarf to protect the scalp from sun and external environmental factors that could cause more harm to the head  Before, during and after the treatment sessions can include the use of gentle hair care products, consuming a healthy diet, taking protective measures for hair, scalp, and head.          


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.
