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.
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.
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.

Water is the elixir of life and food is medicine. These days, the food we get from the grocery store is sure to have two or three sections based on where the produce comes from. Genetically modified foods( GMOs), inorganic and the organic. While most of what we eat are inorganic, meaning the food has been treated and grown using inorganic fertilizers and pesticides, this increases our risk of developing cancer that such chemicals contribute to. While most of the news states that organic food we consume does not do much in reducing our risks of developing cancer, it cannot be disregarded as a myth as studies are being made to show the impact of organic foods on the human body and fighting cancer. A study of nearly 70,000 French adults who were tracked for an average of 4.5 years found that those who ate the most organic foods were less likely to develop certain kinds of cancer than the people who ate the least. In the study, it was found that glyphosate, malathion, and diazinon could be the probable causative factors of cancer alongside carcinogens, a very powerful cancer-causing substance. Also in the research, the people who consumed organic foods often had higher incomes, more education, and higher-status jobs and over-all better lifestyle. They were also more likely to exercise, to have quit smoking, and to eat higher amounts of healthful foods such as fruits and vegetables. All of these things are associated with a lower risk of cancer. It was found after taking into account all these factors that people who had access to frequent consumption of organic food were 25 percent less likely to develop any type of cancer. The women who ate organic foods most often were 34 percent less likely to receive this diagnosis than women who ate organic foods the least. Organic produce has phytochemicals like carotenoids, flavonoids among other chemicals that help fight harmful diseases and cure inflammations but they alone can not act as miracle workers. It is the series of other healthy habits that follow the consumption of organic foods that weigh in as anti-cancer causing factors. Organic foods are rich and in the natural state of growth as opposed to the conventional produce growth these days so they have better nutritional value and dietary fiber value. Most importantly, they do not contain chemicals that are seen in inorganic produce. Although research around the anti-cancer causing nature of organic food is still unclear as to crediting organic foods for lower cancer cases in people who eat such foods, it is a better option to eat conventional foods which may not always have cancer-causing chemicals in them. The benefits of conventional foods outweigh the risks of pesticide exposure. Berries, garlic, tomatoes, green tea, cruciferous veggies, turmeric, leafy greens, grapes whole grains like brown rice are some of the very few foods that have cancer-fighting properties. They have anti-oxidants that capture free radicals that cause more harm to the body and have higher chances of leading to cancer. Since the inorganic produce we get ion our supermarkets are mixed with inorganic fertilizers and pesticides that were given to them as they grow, these chemicals are stored in them and enter our bodies and create complications like cancer-based on the type of chemicals used in the pesticides. Starting from herbs and spices to fruits and vegetables, the Indian food is rich with anti- cancer-causing and anti-inflammatory properties that naturally provide our bodies with some level of cancer shield. With the advent of fast food and western food that is grown in inorganic ways, it is no doubt that organic food needs to be re-established I our food system to tackle the cancer problem that we see today. It is a clear reality to be observed that cancer cases have risen astronomically in the past decade as the rates of inorganic and fast foods have popularly increased and they are easier to find and buy, unlike the organic counterpart. With overpopulation and shortage of food resources on the rise, gaining access to organic food is a costly process that is imperative in order to reduce our risk of getting cancer through the very food we rely on for survival. It is time we spend more on making sure we eat good food, organic food not just in hopes of preventing cancer but also to lead a physically and mentally active and healthy life.Read more
The world has seen and heard enough about Artificial Intelligence and the wonders it has been helping us humans with and just when we thought AI could give us no more, there is news on how AI has been developed to tackle cancer therapy and treatment. Making the lives of cancer survivors better are AI technology, AI startups, and AI tech giants like Google Deepmind Health to name a few sources. AI uses machine language, natural language processing, algorithms, computer vision, planning, artificial general intelligence to engage in learning complex patterns; find and understand differences; draw out pathways in creating easy, feasible and reliable solutions to the medical field. Robot-assisted surgeries that operate on AI are used by surgeons for delicate conditions with precision control. With the impactful entry of Artificial Intelligence, health care is getting better, faster diagnosis is a reality with hundreds of thousands of patient cases each year, personalized patient treatment and regimen are made available thanks to one powerful aspect of AI called machine learning (MI). Powerful and fool-proof algorithms will pinpoint illnesses and prescribe treatments while a machine is fed with a patient’s medical record and his/her family medical record to collect and use the massive collection of data. AI helps in planning the treatment and predicting tumor growth and evolution, drug resistance, side effects all from the data it already has access to or with the new data made available by researchers, online cancer care portals and health care personnel and medical professionals like doctors. A new artificial intelligence (AI) tool developed by a team at the University of Toronto headed by Aaron Babies has developed software to significantly reduce the time needed to develop radiation therapy treatment plans for cancer patients. Historical radiation therapy is mined using the software and AI automates the process under twenty minutes. Data from clinical trials, drug research, drug discovery, image processing, image mapping, decoding raw data are all used in AI software. Google’s Deepmind Health integrates the data and research collected from health centers from around the world and uses AI. Application of machine learning to screen mammograms is one of the few steps done by Deepmind Health since its entering The controversial scene of collecting patient data from the UK Imperial Centre. In the recent news, Deepmind has resorted to a bitcoin-style ledger-based system to record patient data and interaction automatically and is fully visible since it’s an online ledger. MIT Media Lab has proposed a model that controls the treatment regimen it created by using “self-learning” machine learning that creates an optimal treatment plan, with the lowest possible potency and frequency of doses that reduce tumor sizes to a degree comparable to that of traditional regimens. TriNet, a global health research network that optimizes clinical research and enables discoveries through the creation of real-world evidence, data, analytics, and a researcher community together. This company based in Cambridge, Massachusetts enables a global industry exchange and liberates data with the potential to rapidly provide answers to hard questions regarding clinical problems. It supports electronic medical records and genomics analysis on over 300 million patients from “hundreds” of health care institutions in 17 countries, including the U.S., U.K., Germany, Italy, Japan, Singapore, India, and Brazil. “ With TriNet, what previously took days or weeks to determine may often be done in minutes,” says Merck Global Health Innovation Fund vice president. With around 1.6 million people diagnosed with cancer worldwide, AI acts as a revolutionary way to assist doctors, researchers, and surgeons to diagnose, layout treatment plans, review, and provide post-cancer care to patients. This does not mean AI is gaining more importance than the doctors and researchers but that robots and AI make life a little simpler and stress-free for both doctors and patients. The human connection will still be necessary for optimal patient care but the role of doctors in diagnostics may vary. It is an achievement that AI is what it is now from where we started it all from the “Turing test”. With deep learning, there is more scope in what AI could assist the cancer scene with and there is more hope in all the technological advancements that are yet to be seen.Read more
Stress is the condition when a person feels that he/she is under some mental, physical or emotional pressure. The human body responds to any kind of stress by releasing hormones which increase blood pressure, increased heart rate and increased blood sugar levels. When a person is detected with cancer, it not only affects the person but also his/her parents and family members and his close friends and relatives. A person who is detected with cancer, has to endure a hard and long journey in which his physical, mental and emotional conditions will be tested and they will be tested very hard. It can also affect his connection with his family and dear and near ones. A person’s financial condition, social status, and the psychological situation can change when he/she is detected with or undergoing the treatment of cancer. Feelings of depression, surrender, and anxiety is very common and is normal to this very life-changing experience. However, having a happy and self-motivating attitude can help the person in this tedious journey of his. A patient needs to tell his doctor about the stressful condition that he/she is facing and the feelings the person is having at that period, because a doctor is not there to help him just with the cure of cancer and prescribing medicines to the person but the doctor can also help him with his feelings and inspire him in this life-changing event of his. Reports show that as many as 40% of the time doctors did not understand the mental or emotional condition of a patient. It is mostly seen that the person affected most other than the person who has cancer is his/her spouse in the whole family circle. When a person experiences stress the body responds with a big neurological and endocrine change. Researchers have that a reduction in overall stress can be achieved when a combination of medical and psychological interventions are used. Cancer does not just affect a particular body part of a patient, it affects the whole person their near and dear ones. Coping up with Mood Swings during Cancer Talk about the emotional changes to a doctor: A doctor is the best person who can help a patient with cancer or undergoing cancer cure. Some patients hold themselves back from telling their doctor about their mood changes but this should not be done. A patient should talk freely about his/her mood changes during the cancer treatment period. Eating well: A patient should eat well and eat healthy keeping his/her health in mind. If proper and healthy food is not supplied to the body during this crucial time period, then that can be the cause of another serious issue. Doing relaxation exercises (yoga): Doing relaxation exercises can help keep the body and mind stable and also help keep a positive mood throughout the day. Doing yoga every day can also help reduce anxiety, depression, tiredness, and fatigue thus making them feel refreshed every day. Doing some regular sets of exercises: Doing some regular sets of exercises like swimming, walking, jogging or any other form of exercise can help keep the patient’s mind distracted and help them remain calm and happy. Avoiding alcohol: It is fine if the patient drinks a measured amount of alcohol with the permission and consultation of the doctor who is currently treating him. Otherwise, if alcohol is drunk without the knowledge of the doctor it might react with the drugs which are currently being used for treating the patient’s cancer and cause risky side-effects. However, it has been seen that drinking malt whiskey can help prevent cancer. Getting enough sleep: While a person is being treated for cancer his/her need for sleep may increase as the body repairs itself. Studies show that the hormone produced by the brain when the body is sleeping is melatonin which may have antioxidant properties that can help stop cancer-causing cells. Talking to other people about your feelings: Talking to people close to your heart can help a person open up and ease his mind from the negative thoughts and thus relieve him/her of the tension and stress. Reaching out to friends might help. Talk to a cancer survivor: A small talk with a cancer survivor can help the person gain some knowledge from his experience and also motivate the person to keep the negativity at bay. Also talking to a cancer survivor may help the current patient improve his body and mind more and also teach them how to cope with their fears.Read more
