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.

Alternative therapies for Cancer

Many people who have cancer are rather interested in trying anything that can cure them out of this in one piece including complementary and alternative cancer therapies. Alternative cancer treatments can offer some feeling of control over cancer but many alternative cancer treatments are unproven and can be even dangerous. Alternative treatments may not play a direct role in curing cancer but they can help the patients cope up with signs and symptoms such as anxiety, fatigue, nausea, and vomiting and pain difficulty in sleeping and stress may be lessened by alternative cancer treatments. Before taking any kind of alternative treatment is largely advised that the patients should go on a one on one sit down with their doctor and discuss everything. Many alternative treatments for cancer is expensive. Some therapies may cost a few hundred a months whereas others might even cost up to lakhs per month. Alternative therapies- 1.  Acupuncture: In acupuncture treatment, a doctor inserts tiny needles into the skin at precise points. Studies have shown that acupuncture can help relieve nausea caused by chemotherapy also it can help relieve certain kinds of pains for people with cancer. Acupuncture is safe if it is performed by a licensed practitioner using sterile needles, acupuncture is not safe if the patient is taking blood thinners or is having low blood counts. 2.  Aromatherapy: aromatherapy involves the usage of fragrant oils to provide a calming sensation. Oils mixed with lavender can be applied on the skin during a massage session or can be mixed with the bath water. Aromatherapy may be helpful in releasing stress, pain, and nausea. Although aromatherapy is safe but the oils can cause allergic reactions on the skin and can cause inflammation. People with cancer that is estrogen sensitive especially some breast cancer types should avoid the application of large amounts of lavender oil or tea oil on the skin. 3.  Exercise: exercising can help manage signs and symptoms during and after the period of cancer treatment. Gentle exercise may help patients get relief from fatigue and stress and also help them have a good sleep. Nowadays many studies are showing that doing general exercise or any kind of exercise can help cancer patients live longer and improve the quality of their life. 4.  Hypnosis: Hypnosis is a deep state of concentration. During a hypnosis session, a therapist may hypnotize a person by taking in a gentle or low voice and helping the person calm down in a soothing way and thus helping the person relax. The therapist can even help the patients focus more on goals by controlling the pain and reducing the stress. Hypnosis can help a person with cancer who is experiencing anxiety, pain, and stress, it may even prevent anticipated nausea and vomiting is chemotherapy has made the patient sick in the past. Hypnosis should not be performed on a patient with mental illness as it can cause more diverse effects. 5.  Massage: during a massage session the practitioner can release the tension from the muscle making the patient feel light and relaxed with peace at mind. Studies have found out that massage can be used the get rid of pain from patients who have cancer. Massage can be safe if the therapist is knowledgeable. Even many cancer treatment centers have massage therapists as the staff who give massage regularly to people with cancer. However, it is better to avoid massage if the patient’s blood count is very low. Also, the massage therapist should avoid massaging near surgical scars, radiation treatment areas or tumor. 6.  Music therapy: during music therapy sessions the person may be asked to sing songs, listen to music, play musical instruments or write down lyrics. A trained music therapist may lead the patents through sessions designed to meet the specific needs of the person. Music therapy may help get rid of pain and control nausea or occasional vomiting. Musical therapy is the safest and does not require any musical talent to participate. 7.  Tai chi: it is a form of exercise that involves gentle movements and deep breathing. Practicing tai chi help relieves stress and alleviates the body and mind. Tai chi is safe and the slow movements of tai chi do not require and great physical strength.

Telemedicine in Chronic Diseases

Chronic diseases tend to become more common with age.  Chronic diseases are stated generally as conditions that last 3 months or more and need continuing medical attention or limit activities of daily living or both. Chronic diseases may be long-lived conditions that typically can be controlled but may not be cured sometimes. People living with chronic diseases usually must manage daily symptoms that have an effect on their quality of life, and experience serious health issues and complications that may shorten their lifetime. Chronic diseases - like heart disease, cancer, diabetes, stroke, and inflammatory disease - are the leading causes of abnormality and death. Although common and expensive, several chronic diseases are preventable. Several chronic diseases are connected to lifestyle choices that are within your own hands to change. Some Chronic diseases and conditions: 1.      Heart Disease 2.      Local IMPACT Project 3.      Obesity 4.      Oral Health 5.      Alzheimer's Disease and other Dementias 6.      Arthritis 7.      Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) Syndrome 8.      Tobacco Use and Related Conditions 9.      Asthma 10.     Cancer 11.      Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) 12.     Cystic Fibrosis 13.     Diabetes 14.     Eating Disorders 15.     Osteoporosis One of the most important issues for individuals with chronic diseases is continuity of care. Fixing the gaps in knowledge from one health care skilled to a different has been shown to improve patient health outcomes. Telemedicine makes this method easier, faster, and more correct. Instead of having to travel over the whole world for a new health care provider, telehealth & e-medicine will inform new doctors and nurses instantly, completely, and accurately on the health status and history of their patients. This is often notably true for those with chronic diseases who live in rural areas where doctor and nurse turnover rates are highest. Tele-medicine involves the use of electronic communications and software to provide clinical services to patients without an in-person visit. In such situations, Tele-medicine can be a great alternative to the traditional health care system: 1.    Diagnoses of common medical problems such as headache, sore throat,         back pain, digestive troubles 2.    Inquiries about various medical issues for home treatments 3.    Post-treatment check-ins or follow up for chronic care 4.    Patient inability to leave the house due to sickness

Cancer Treatment and its Expense

Cancer is a group of diseases that involves abnormal growth of cells with the potential to expand and harm the other parts of the body. Cancer can change the course of life for any living being in a matter of a few days if it is not detected early and treated likewise. Tobacco use is leading the cause of cancer cases with more than 40 percent of cancers caused due to tobacco use alone around the globe. Another 10 to 15 percent of cancer cases are due to obesity or lack of physical diet or lacking in physical health maintenance. But once detected with cancer it can cost much to heal yourself fully of the disease and start a new life. Average cancer treatment can cost around 5 to 6 lakhs per treatment which can sum up to around 20 lakhs or more in total. Cancer Treatment Costing According to research done in 2004 on the economic burdens of cancer on Indian households, the money outflow in cancer affected homes was 36-45 percent more than regular households. The borrowings and debts of those households are also greater than regular households and their outflow has risen significantly which is an indication that Cancer costing is likely to shoot out of the roof. The costs of cancer have gone up due to more expensive infrastructure, new technology-based investigation costs and the introduction of newer drugs. Specialists in this field are not only hard to come but also expensive as well. If cancer is detected and treated early it becomes effective not only from the treatment side but also is cost-effective and decreases the costing to a very much affordable level. In India around 70 percent of cancer cases are detected in the advanced stages where it is next to impossible to save the patient at this, also the cancer cells have spread out and covered more than 82 percent of the host’s body. The main reason for the staggering cost of cancer treatment is due to the cost of the machines that the hospitals use to treat their patients. A Liner accelerator which is used for radiation therapy cost around rupees 10 crores, and over that an import duty of rupees 1 crore is added.  Similarly, a PRT CT scan machine which is used to pinpoint the location of cancer cells costs somewhere between 3 to 6 crore rupees. On average research has shown patients might need more than 10 courses to get completely cured if not less which cost around rupees 75000 per course. There is no standardized cure for cancer, it could cost as low as 2.5 lakhs for 6 months of treatment to as high as 25 lakhs if not more and if the person/patient is not covered by proper health insurance then cancer treatment can be a really bad nightmare. Although there has been a rise for health insurance products in India still India seems to have the highest levels of under penetration in the world with only 0.6 percent of the total Indian population being insured for health. This creates a huge burden on the family as such and they have a hard time coming up with the billings of cancer treatment.      


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.
