Be careful: The First Signs And Symptoms Of Lung Cancer That You Should Not Ignore First. Lung cancer is the second most common cancer in men and women, and the leading cause of cancer death according to the American Cancer Society. While you may think that smokers are the only segment of the population at risk for lung cancer, you may be surprised to know that twenty percent of lung cancer deaths are people who do not smoke. The American Cancer Society explains that air pollution, secondhand smoke, gas, and cancer-causing agents, such as asbestos and gas oil, are the main risk factors for lung cancer. The best defense against lung cancer is to know the first signs and symptoms. The sooner you visit your doctor and the sooner the cancer is diagnosed, the better chance of recovery. Continue reading to learn about the first signs and symptoms of lung cancer. Frequent illness. If you have noticed a spike in your frequency of illnesses such as colds, flu, bronchitis or pneumonia, you should talk to your doctor about the possible causes of your depressed immune system. Dr. Kelley says that when cancer sits in lung tissue and bronchial tubes, the lungs become more susceptible to the disease. Unexplained weight loss. If you have lost interest in food or feel full quickly after eating, lung cancer may be affecting your appetite. Dr. Kelley recommends having a notebook to record symptoms and possible causes, such as food poisoning, food allergy, PMS in women, or gastrointestinal diseases. If the cause is unexplained, you need the attention of your doctor. Pain of the fingers. You may be surprised to know that thick and painful fingertips are a typical symptom of lung cancer. This is because lung tumors release chemicals in the bloodstream that stimulate the growth of bones and tissues at the fingertips and under the nails. Dr. Kelley says that you should tell your doctor about any thickening, swelling, or tapping on your fingers. Pain in the torso. If you experience persistent dull pain in the chest, shoulder, back, or abdomen, you may be experiencing direct pressure from a lung tumor. According to Dr. Kelley, chest pain is a symptom in one in four patients with lung cancer. Hoarsely. If your voice sounds a little hoarse or if you feel pain when swallowing or talking, you may have lung cancer. NHS Choices says that this common symptom is a reason to call your doctor, especially when accompanied by a persistent cough, wheezing or coughing up blood. Shortness of breath. This is a common symptom in women who are often misdiagnosed as a side effect of age or inactivity. Shortness of breath is a sign of adenocarcinoma, the most common form of lung cancer in women. Weakness in the upper limbs. Weakness in the upper limbs, loss of coordination and muscle cramps are all symptoms of paraneoplastic syndrome, a condition related to lung cancer in which hormonal substances are secreted by tumors. Breast growth in men. One less talked about symptom in male lung cancer patients is enlargement of the breast around and under the nipple. Dr. Kelley explains that this is a symptom of paraneoplastic syndrome, caused by the release of hormones, proteins and other substances into the bloodstream. https://youtu.be/cALmN0f5w_g

Lung cancer, also known as carcinoma of the lung or pulmonary carcinoma, is a malignant lung tumor characterized by uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. If left untreated, this growth can spread beyond the lung by process of metastasis into nearby tissue or other parts of the body. The vast majority (80–90%) of cases of lung cancer are due to long-term exposure to tobacco smoke. About 10–15% of cases occur in people who have never smoked. These cases are often caused by a combination of genetic factors and exposure to radon gas, asbestos, or other forms of air pollution, including second-hand smoke. Worldwide, lung cancer is the most common cancer among men in terms of both incidence and mortality, and among women has the third highest incidence, and is second after breast cancer in mortality. Learn the signs of lung cancer to catch the disease early and ensure a positive outcome. Below are some early signs of lung cancer according to healthline.com. No Warning Lung cancer may not produce any noticeable symptoms in the early stages. In approximately 40 percent of people diagnosed with lung cancer, the diagnosis is made after the disease has advanced. In one third of those diagnosed, the cancer has reached stage 3. Cough That Won’t Quit Be on alert for a new cough that lingers. While a cough associated with a cold or respiratory infection will go away in a week or two, a persistent cough that lingers can be a possible sign of lung cancer. Don’t be tempted to dismiss a stubborn cough, whether it is dry or mucus-producing, as “just a cough.” Change in a Cough Pay attention to any changes in a chronic cough, particularly if you are a smoker. If you are coughing more often, your cough has a deeper or hoarse sound, or you are coughing up blood or more mucus than usual, it’s time to make a doctor’s appointment. Breathing Changes Shortness of breath or becoming easily winded are also possible symptoms of lung cancer. This symptom can occur if lung cancer blocks or narrows an airway, or if fluid from a lung tumor builds up in the chest. Make a point of noticing when you feel winded or short of breath. If this symptom occurs after climbing the stairs to your house, bringing in groceries, or performing another task you could previously do without finding it hard to breathe, don’t ignore it. Pain in the Chest Area Lung cancer may produce pain in the chest, shoulder, or back area. This aching feeling may not be associated with coughing. Tell your doctor if you notice any type of chest pain, whether it is sharp, dull, constant, or comes and goes. You should also note whether it is confined to a specific area or is occurring throughout your chest. When lung cancer causes chest pain, the discomfort may result from enlarged lymph nodes or metastasis to the chest wall, pleura (lining around the lungs), or the ribs. Wheezing When airways become constricted, blocked, or inflamed, the lungs produce a wheezing or whistling sound when you breathe. Wheezing can be associated with multiple causes, some of which are benign and easily treatable. However, wheezing is also a lung cancer symptom, which is why it merits your doctor’s attention. If wheezing continues, don’t assume it’s asthma or allergies. Have your doctor confirm what’s causing it. Raspy, Hoarse Voice If you hear a significant change in your voice, or if someone else points out that your voice sounds deeper, hoarse, or raspier, get checked out by your doctor. Hoarseness can be caused by a simple cold, but this symptom becomes worrisome when it hangs on for more than two weeks. Hoarseness related to lung cancer can occur when the tumor affects the nerve that controls the larynx, or voice box. Drop in Weight An unexplained weight loss of 10 pounds or more may be associated with lung cancer or another type of cancer. When cancer is present, this weight drop may result from cancer cells using energy in the body. It could also result from shifts in the way the body uses food energy. Don’t write off a change in your weight if you haven’t been trying to shed pounds—it may be a clue to a change in your health. Bone Pain Lung cancer that has spread to the bones may produce pain in the back or in other areas of the body. This pain may worsen at night while resting on the back. Additionally, lung cancer is sometimes associated with shoulder, arm, or neck pain, although this is less common. Be attentive to your aches and pains, and discuss them with your doctor. Headache Headaches may be a sign that lung cancer has spread to the brain. However, not all headaches in people with lung cancer are associated with brain metastases. Sometimes, a lung tumor may create pressure on the superior vena cava, which is the large vein that moves blood from the upper body to the heart. This pressure can also trigger headaches. Talk with your doctor if your body shows these symptoms.

We get patients with x-ray with abnormality show scar in the lung and we are referred for it. Is it a cancer? That’s the doubt the patients family members and the patient himself will be having. How do you go about it? First when the patient comes to us, first we see the x-ray and see the scar and measure the size and the characteristics. Does it look like cancerous? There are certain radiological characteristics for it for which it really looks like cancer? How is the lung? How is the scar? Is it away from the lungs, is it above, is it below, is it looks like calcification, is there any necessity to do any investigations and we have to keep down their anxiety level down. Most of the time it will be benign, it will be a, it should be non cancerous, then you don’t have to do anything. So sometimes we just take a history. A smoking history will be taken care. So we will ask how much cigarettes they smoke and the age. Whether they are less than 40 or more than 40. If they have significant past history of smoking and more than 40, if they have a family history of lung cancer, and we need to evaluate. If the x-ray looks distinct the next step of investigation is the CT scan of the chest. And do the Ct scan we can do more than x-ray. Its more of 3 dimensional. So if it is really like a calcification is there, most of the time we ask a history. We go into the depth of the history. If you ask a previous x-ray and if it’s more than 2 years old x-ray we ask. If the 2 year old x-ray and the size is same, and we look at the doubling time of a scar lesion. If the scar is of the same size, we don’t do anything, it is probably benign. Sometimes previous history of tuberculosis, we see a granuloma and we don’t do anything. Sometimes we see a popcorn calcification, we don’t do anything for it. So if it looks abnormal in terms of if there are irregular borders are there and eccentric calcification is there and these kind of characteristics are there then we need to evaluate it. So in a CT scan when you get that kind of a picture and if the size is less than 3 whether there is a probability of lung cancer is there, so there are other investigative modalities like a PET scan, and if it a well localized and its very very small and there is no evidence of spread in other organs like the chest mediastinal modes are there, or certain other spreads like bones it has spread, he has a back pain, whether it is liver, we need to do a PET CT and if it is early stage, and it can be receptible, and curable disease is there then we give options for doing a biopsy. If it is close to the chest wall, we ask the interventional radiologist or we ourselves can sometimes do a CT guided biopsy or FNAC to confirm the diagnosis and if it is close to the airway, we need a bronchoscopy and sometimes we will be able to get the diagnosis by a routine bronchoscopy. We need a additional bronchoscopic tool like Eiber’;s and other things might be required. Sometimes if we have a difficulty in diagnosis. Once the confirmation of diagnosis is done , then it is the staging. Then we stage it and if it is receptible, we send it to a thoracic surgeon and then take out and then the options of radiotherapy, chemotherapy and surgeries are there. Surgeries are usually used for very very early cancer where it is not involved anything. The second option is will be chemotherapy. Chemotherapy, provided their performance state will be very good, means they look at a score, they are out of the guide moving around. More than 50% they are out of the bed, then we look at them and into those things. Then they are candidates for chemotherapy and is not recommended for this thing,that is the other options for radiotherapy,. We send it for radiotherapy, they take it in sessions. So they look at this things. Sometimes if the disease is very advanced means we don’t do anything. We give a proper palliative and end of life care issues, those things will be discussed. So it all depends on the age, the characteristics and how the extent of the disease and based on that, we take a call on that. Sometimes the scar can be very very very benign. Sometimes it can be a very serious problem.

Seeing calcification in the lung is not very rare. We come across quite a few cases where the chest x-ray shows calcification in the lungs. The question is a but solitary calcification in the lung. So solitary calcification is depending upon the size and the nature of the calcification which probably has its own limitation once seen in the x-ray or depends on the site at which is seen in the x-ray. It depends on all these factors to diagnose the disease. Calcification as such means that the disease is inactive. Whatever disease is the underlying or the pathology underlying if it is calcified, it ultimately means that it has reached an inactive state but it also signifies whether there has been a diseases for which the patient has received treatment or not or whether the disease I likely to recur and what are the underlying conditions in which the calcification took place or most important is whether there has been any symptoms caused by this type of lesion. ultimately calcification in the lung in the chest x-ray, it also signifies that it is a space occupying problem and anything occupying the space in the lung should be investigated atleast to find out if there are any symptoms associated with it or it should be kept inactive and it should be kept inactive and said that we should watch it in future course and keep screening the patient.

Pain in the chest area Lung cancer may produce pain in the chest, shoulders, or back. An aching feeling may not be associated with coughing. Tell your doctor if you notice any type of chest pain, whether it is sharp, dull, constant, or comes and goes. You should also note whether it is confined to a specific area or is occurring throughout your chest.

It may be difficult to differentiate between bone and muscle pain. Bone pain is often worse at night and increases with movement.

20 early warning signs that cancer is growing in your body 1. Wheezing/shortness of breath Lung cancer patients remember noticing this as one of their first symptoms but didn't initially connect it to cancer. 2. Frequent fevers or infections Frequently a sign of leukemia, a cancer of the blood cells that starts in bone marrow. It causes the marrow to produce abnormal white blood cells that hinder your body's infection-fighting abilities. 3. Difficulty swallowing Most commonly associated with throat cancer, but can be a good indicator of lung cancer too. 4. Weakness and fatigue Such a common symptom of cancer that it should be looked at in combination with other symptoms to determine which it is. 5. Feeling full and unable to eat This is a sign of ovarian cancer. A loss of appetite even when you haven't eaten for a while is a tip-off. 6. Anorexia Could be an early sign of pancreatic cancer. A sudden disgust for coffee, wine or smoking can be linked to this as well. 7. Rectal bleeding or blood in stool Common sign of colorectal cancer. Blood in the toilet should be a big enough sign to see a doctor immediately. 8. Lumps in the neck, underarm or groin area Swollen lymph nodes indicate changes in the lymphatic system which can lead to cancer. 9. Excessive bruising or bleeding that doesn't stop Suggests abnormalities with the platelets and red blood cells, which can be a sign of leukemia. Leukemia cells crowd out red blood cells impairing your blood's ability to carry oxygen leading to clots. 10. Bloating or abdominal weight gain Ovarian cancer patients reported unexplained bloating that came on suddenly and continued for a significant amount of time. 11. Unexplained weight loss An early sign of colon and other digestive cancers. Also a sign of cancer that has spread to the liver, affecting your appetite and the body's ability to get rid of waste. 12. A red, sore, or swollen breast Indicates inflammatory breast cancer, unexplained changes should be told to a doctor immediately. A nipple that appears flattened, inverted or turned sideways had also been noticed by patients diagnosed with breast cancer. 13. Swelling of facial features Lung cancer patients have reported noticing puffiness, swelling or redness of the face. Small cell lung tumors commonly block blood vessels in the chest preventing blood from flowing freely to the head. 14. Sore/lump on the skin that bleeds, becomes crusty or doesn't heal Different types of skin cancer (melanoma, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma) can cause these, so be aware of any odd-looking growths or spots. 15. Changes in nails A brown/black dot under the nail can indicate skin cancer. Pale or white nails can be a sign of liver cancer. "Clubbing", which is the enlargement of the fingers with nails that curve down over the tips, can be a sign of lung cancer. 16. Unusually heavy or painful periods, bleeding between periods A common sign of endometrial or uterine cancer. A transvaginal ultrasound should be considered if the problem persists. 17. Chronic cough or chest pain Leukemia and lung tumors (among others), show symptoms that can mimic a bad cough or bronchitis. Some patients also reported a chest pain that extended to the shoulder and down their arm. 18. Pelvic/Abdominal pain Pain and cramping in the pelvis can be linked with the bloating signs of ovarian cancer. Leukemia also does this because it enlarges the spleen. 19. Pain in back or lower right side Often an early sign of liver cancer. Breast cancer can also be found through this as a breast tumor can press backward into the chest or spread to the spine/ribs. 20. Upset stomach Stomach cramps or a frequently upset stomach can be a sign of colorectal cancer. Subscribe ► https://goo.gl/1dVtUS Thank you for watching.

Cough That Won’t Quit Advertisement Be on alert for a new cough that lingers. While a cough associated with a cold or respiratory infection will go away in a week or two, a persistent cough that lingers can be a possible sign of lung cancer. Don’t be tempted to dismiss a stubborn cough, whether it is dry or mucus-producing, as “just a cough.” See your doctor right away.

Tell your doctor if you notice any type of chest pain, whether it is sharp, dull, constant, or comes and goes. You should also note whether it is confined to a specific area or is occurring throughout your chest. When lung cancer causes chest pain, the discomfort may result from enlarged lymph nodes or metastasis to the chest wall, pleura (lining around the lungs), or the ribs.

Sometimes, a lung tumor may create pressure on the superior vena cava, which is the large vein that moves blood from the upper body to the heart. This pressure can also trigger headaches. Easy Screening May Help Chest X-rays are not effective in detecting early-stage lung cancer. However, low-dose computed tomography (CT) scans have been shown to reduce lung cancer mortality by 20 percent, according to a 2011 study. In the study, 53,454 people at high risk for lung cancer were randomly assigned either a low-dose CT scan or an X-ray. The low-dose CT scans detected more lung cancer. There were also significantly fewer deaths from the disease in the low-dose CT group. Aimed at High-Risk Patients The study prompted the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force to issue a draft recommendation that people at high risk for lung cancer receive low-dose CT screening. The recommendation applies only to people who: have a 30-pack year or more history of smoking are ages 55 to 79 have smoked within the past 15 years Talk with your doctor about whether low-dose CT screening is appropriate for you.

This is how my dog breathed with lung cancer. He first was diagnosed with inoperable mast cell tumors but did well outside of a few seizures occasionally. Then he developed an anal sac tumor recently which then metastasized to his liver and lungs. He started coughing up spots of blood and developed a severe bladder infection. He sadly is being euthanized today. He is almost 11 and was spoiled and loved dearly.

Symptoms of lung cancer may include: A cough that doesn't go away or gets worse. Breathing trouble, like shortness of breath. Coughing up blood. Chest pain. Hoarseness or wheezing. Pneumonia that doesn't go away or that goes away and comes back. Are the lungs in the front or back of the body? The lungs are found in the chest on the right and left side. At the front they extend from just above the collarbone (clavicle) at the top of the chest to about the sixth rib down. At the back of the chest the lungs finish around the tenth rib. What were your first symptoms of lung cancer? According to the American Cancer Society, common lung cancer symptoms include: a cough that does not go away or gets worse. chest pain that is often worse with deep breathing, coughing or laughing. persistent hoarseness. unexplained weight loss and loss of appetite. coughing up blood. unexplained shortness of breath; What is interstitial pneumonia? Usual interstitial pneumonia (UIP) is a form of lung disease characterized by progressive scarring of both lungs. The scarring (fibrosis) involves the supporting framework (interstitium) of the lung. UIP is thus classified as a form of interstitial lung disease. What is the cause of interstitial lung disease? Some of the types of interstitial lung disease include: Interstitial pneumonia: Bacteria, viruses, or fungi may infect the interstitium of the lung. A bacterium called Mycoplasma pneumonia is the most common cause. Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis : A chronic, progressive form of fibrosis (scarring) of the interstitium. What are the causes of lung infection? These air sacs make up most of the lung tissue. Lung diseases affecting the alveoli include: Pneumonia: An infection of the alveoli, usually by bacteria. Tuberculosis: A slowly progressive pneumonia caused by the bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosis. What is sarcoidosis of the lungs? Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease that affects multiple organs in the body, but mostly the lungs and lymph glands. In people with sarcoidosis, abnormal masses or nodules (called granulomas) consisting of inflamed tissues form in certain organs of the body. What does lung pain feel like? Pleuritis. Also known as pleurisy, this condition is an inflammation or irritation of the lining of the lungs and chest. You likely feel a sharp pain when you breathe, cough, or sneeze. The most common causes of pleuritic chest pain are bacterial or viral infections, pulmonary embolism, and pneumothorax. What does it feel like when you have cancer? Deep, aching pain. A tumor that presses on your bones or grows into your bones can cause deep, aching pain. Bone pain is the most common type of cancer pain. Burning pain. What is Honeycombing in the lungs? Definition. In pathology, honeycomb lung refers to the fibrotic cystic changes (honeycomb changes) seen in the lungs of those with certain end-stage interstitial lung diseases (ILDs). Honeycomb lung is a pathologic finding and not a specific disease entity. What is interstitial lung disease? Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is an umbrella term that covers many different conditions. The most common of these is idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). Why do you cough up blood with lung cancer? Symptoms of lung cancer include cough, coughing up blood or rusty-colored phlegm, fatigue, unexplained weight loss, recurrent respiratory infections, hoarseness, new wheezing, and shortness of breath... 😍😍😍😍😍 Like, Share and Subscribe Our Channel if you think these video is informative and helpful.

Descriptions of Warning Signs of Colon Cancer You Shouldn’t Ignore: According to the American Cancer Society, 1 in 20 people are at a risk of developing colorectal cancer during their lifetime must get colon cancer clinical trials.. The exact cause of colorectal or bowel cancer is not known. However, it is believed to develop when healthy cells become abnormal and start growing in number and accumulate in the lining of the colon, forming polyps. Left untreated, polyps may become cancerous. As it can be difficult to treat colon cancer after it spreads to nearby areas, it is important to know what the early symptoms are. This can help you seek early treatment and give you a better chance in recovery at all you must do colon cancer treatment options and know early about what is treatment for colon cancer. Here are the top 5 sign and symptoms of colorectal cancer. 1. Constipation 01:02 Constipation is an important sign of cancer in the colon. A 2011 study published in the Asian Pacific Journal of Cancer Prevention highlights the link between constipation and colorectal cancer risk. An earlier 2004 study published in the European Journal of Cancer supported the hypothesis that constipation or laxative use increases the risk of colon cancer. A tumor present at the far end of the colon can make it very difficult to eliminate waste products, thereby causing constipation. If you persistently have fewer bowel movements per week, without any prior problem of constipation, consult your doctor to find out the exact cause. 2. Diarrhea 01:59 If you suffer from diarrhea for more than a couple of weeks, it may be an early symptom of colon cancer. When a tumor partially obstructs the bowel, it can cause alternating constipation and diarrhea due to leakage of liquid stool. You may also experience frequent gas, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. Plus, a tumor may irritate or narrow the lining of the intestine. It is important to consult your doctor when you have diarrhea that lasts more than a few days, as it can lead to dehydration, drain your body of nutrients and signal other serious problems, such as cancer. 3. Blood in Stools 02:35 Most often, blood in the stool is due to piles (hemorrhoids), where the veins in the back passage become fragile and cause a little bleeding during a bowel movement. This type of bleeding is generally red. However, if you notice dark red or black blood in your stool, it can be a sign of cancer, such as bowel, rectal or colon cancer. It can also be due to a stomach ulcer. Whether bleeding is due to piles, a stomach ulcer or cancer, it’s important to get it checked by a doctor. Proper diagnosis is essential for appropriate treatment. 4. Constant Feeling of a Bowel Movement 03:25 If you have a constant feeling of urgently needing to have a bowel movement or to strain but no stool is passed, it is not a good sign. This feeling can occur even after having a bowel movement. Changes in your pattern of bowel movements can be a sign of colon cancer. It can occur when a tumor blocks the bowel and prevents you from completely emptying your bowels. If you persistently have the sensation of incomplete evacuation after a bowel movement, discuss the problem with your doctor. 5. Narrow Stools 04:16 Thin, narrow stools are also a warning of possible colon cancer. A tumor present in the left side of the colon obstructs the passageway and often leads to narrow stools. Do not delay discussing any change in your stools with your doctor. Diverticulitis and anal cancer can also cause narrowing of the stools. Music: Royalty Free Music from Bensound

X-Rays are used extensively by doctors for it provides a thorough overview of one's dental chart. The panorama X-ray also known as Ortho-pantomogram (OPG) (alternatively known by the terms Orthopantogram or panorex) gives a panoramic dental X-ray of both the upper and lower jaws. It allows doctors to get a two-dimensional view of the patient's jaw and complete bone structure. Doctors and dentists make use of the panorama X-ray for evaluating and assessing the jaw joints, maxillary sinus, and composite bone structure of the upper and lower jaw, anterior nasal septum and even lower areas of the skull base. Using special X-ray shots like biting on a thin sheet of paper or rectangular X-ray, doctors can successfully carry out an assessment of the dental roots, jaws and caries. The dental X-ray is no different from any normal X-ray and thereby involves the same principles. It takes skill and experience for a dentist to correctly recognize the structures in the X-ray and to interpret them with exactness. The panoramic X-ray was initially conceived in the dental field so that dental practitioner can get a view of the complete jaw structure. Today, this X-ray technique is used for detecting abnormalities in other areas besides the jaw and mandible. Have a look at this video to know more about X-rays. http://www.checkdent.com

So the main thing I see for outpatients is that you have a mass or a nodule. That’s either found because you have an upper respiratory infection that doesn’t go away. You get antibiotics, get another round of antibiotics, get a chest x-ray, you have an area that looks like pneumonia. It doesn’t get better. Then you get a cat scan and it looks like a mass rather than a collapsed part of the lung. Sometimes I see people who have been involved in car crashes or they have a kidney stone and on the upper part of the cat scan they see an abnormality and you get referred to me. Other things I see people for are lymph nodes in the center of the chest, I often see people for those. We do a biopsy to see why you have enlarged lymph nodes. Fluid around the lung is a common theme, that’s called a plural effusion. That can be from you’re not able to take care of fluids, heart failure, kidney failure, inflammation. It can be due to infection or it can be due to cancer. Chest wall, if you have a mass in the chest wall, or a lump, you can come to me to see how we can take that out or how to best treat it. We talked about interstitial lung disease which is kind of an overall picture where we take a biopsy and usually you’ll go back to your pulmonologist for treatment. Lung cancers, the heart, the sack that the heart sits in if there’s fluid around the heart you’ll often come to relieve the fluid and figure out why you have it.

Oral Cancers. Overview: Oral cancer is a cancer that develops in the tissues of the mouth or throat. It belongs to a larger group of cancers called head and neck cancers. Most develop in the squamous cells found in your mouth, tongue, and lips. Oral cancers are most often discovered after they have spread to the lymph nodes of the neck. Early detection is key to surviving oral cancer. Types of oral cancers:. Oral cancers include cancers of the: *lips. *tongue. *cheek. *gums. *floor of the mouth. *hard and soft palate. Your dentist is often the first healthcare provider to notice signs of oral cancer. Risk factors for developing oral cancer:. One of the biggest risk factors for oral cancer is tobacco use. This includes smoking cigarettes, cigars, and pipes, as well as chewing tobacco. People who consume large amounts of alcohol and tobacco are at an even greater risk, especially when both products are used on a regular basis. Other risk factors include:. *HPV infection (a sexually transmitted virus). *chronic facial sun exposure. *a previous diagnosis of oral cancer. *a family history of oral or other types of cancer. *being male. What are symptoms of oral cancer?. Symptoms of oral cancer include:. *a sore on your lip or mouth that won’t heal. *a mass or growth anywhere in your mouth. *bleeding from the mouth. *loose teeth. *pain or difficulty with swallowing. *trouble wearing dentures. *lump in neck. *earache that won’t go away. *dramatic weight loss. *lower lip, face, neck, or chin numbness. *white, red and white, or red patches in mouth or lips. If you notice any of these symptoms, especially if they don’t go away or you have more than one at a time, visit your dentist or doctor as soon as possible. How is oral cancer diagnosed?. First, your doctor or dentist will perform a physical exam. This includes closely examining the roof and floor of your mouth, the back of your throat, tongue, and cheeks, and the lymph nodes in your neck. If your doctor cannot determine why you’re having your symptoms, you may be referred to an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) specialist. If your doctor finds any tumors, growths, or suspicious lesions, they will perform a brush biopsy or a tissue biopsy. A brush biopsy is a painless test that collects cells from the tumor by brushing them onto a slide. A tissue biopsy involves removing a piece of the tissue so it can be examined under a microscope for cancerous cells. In addition, your doctor may perform one or more of the following tests:. *X-rays to see if cancer cells have spread to the jaw, chest, or lungs. *CT scan to reveal any tumors in your mouth, throat, neck, lungs, or elsewhere in your body. *PET scan to determine if the cancer has traveled to lymph nodes or other organs. *MRI scan to show a more accurate image of the head and neck, and determine the extent or stage of the cancer. *endoscopy to examine the nasal passages, sinuses, inner throat, windpipe, and trachea. What are the stages of oral cancer?. There are four stages of oral cancer. Stages 1 and 2 usually involve a small tumor. In these stages, cancer cells have not spread to the lymph nodes. Stages 3 and 4 are considered advanced stages of cancer. In these stages, tumors are large and the cancer cells have usually spread to the lymph nodes or other parts of the body. The survival rate after one year for all stages of oral cancer is 81 percent. After five years, the survival rate is 56 percent, and after 10 years it’s 41 percent. The earlier the stage at diagnosis, the higher the chance of survival after treatment. This makes timely diagnosis and treatment all the more important. How is oral cancer treated?. Treatment for oral cancer will vary depending on the type, location, and stage of the cancer at diagnosis. Treatment for early stages usually involves surgery to remove the tumor and cancerous lymph nodes. In addition, other tissue around the mouth and neck may be taken out. Radiation therapy is another option. This involves a doctor aiming radiation beams at the tumor once or twice a day, five days a week, for two to eight weeks. Treatment for advanced stages will usually involve a combination of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Chemotherapy is treatment with drugs that kill cancer cells. The medicine is given to you either orally or through an intravenous (IV) line. Most people get chemotherapy on an outpatient basis, although some require hospitalization. Targeted therapy is another form of treatment. It can be effective in both early and advanced stages of cancer. Targeted therapy drugs will bind to specific proteins on cancer cells and interfere with their growth. All Photos Licensed Under CC Source : www.pexels.com www.pixabay.com www.commons.wikimedia.org

How to Screen for Lung Cancer|cancer screening center Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths among both genders in the U.S., claiming more lives than colon, prostate, ovarian and breast cancer combined. People at the greatest risk for lung cancer include smokers and those who work with or around toxic chemicals, gases and irritating particles. Screening for lung cancer is important because it's much easier to treat in the early stages before spreading or metastasizing to other parts of the body. You can sort of screen / monitor yourself by understanding common symptoms, but periodically seeing your doctor for chest x-rays, sputum samples and/or CT scans is the best strategy. 1 Remember that early symptoms can be mild and vague. One of the reasons that lung cancer is so deadly is that the disease doesn't often cause noticeable symptoms during the early stages. Furthermore, the mild symptoms of early stage lung cancer are often mistaken for a cold, bout of the flu, bronchitis or asthma. Common early signs of lung cancer (and most upper respiratory infections) include a mild, persistent cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, and weight loss. Signs and symptoms of lung cancer usually become noticeable once the disease is advanced, which is why it's such as deadly disease. The common cold, flu and bronchitis are viral infections that typically fade away two to three weeks, so if your symptoms persist, schedule an appointment with your doctor. 2 Be suspicious of a new cough that doesn't go away. One of the telltale symptoms of lung cancer is the development of a persistent cough that's either completely new or noticeably different than the typical dry, hacking smoker's cough. In contrast to the dry and unproductive cough common with smokers, coughing up foul-smelling phlegm and even blood on occasion is not unusual with the mid-stages of lung cancer. Due to the constant coughing and slow destruction of tissue in the lungs from lung cancer, chest pain invariably develops also. Along with the coughing, wheezing and hoarseness are common with lung cancer too — but it's often misinterpreted as being either emphysema or asthma. If you have a cold or flu and are full of phlegm you may need a chest x-ray. If you have a severe cold with purulent sputum, then the doctor will do a chest examination, such as an x-ray. 3 Look out for unexplained weight loss and fatigue. Another telltale sign of later-stage lung cancer (and many other cancer types) is unexplained / unintended weight loss, which is known medically as cachexia. Cachexia is best described as wasting away and it occurs because the growth and spread of the cancer burns a lot of energy, so your muscles and fat stores waste away. Unlike weight loss from dieting and exercising, cachexia leads to loss of muscle mass and a gaunt-like appearance — sunken eye sockets and cheeks, for examples. Along with weight loss, chronic fatigue develops rather quickly with lung cancer because the lungs lose their ability to absorb oxygen and transfer it to the blood efficiently.

Always seek the advice of a qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Tuberculosis, or TB, is one of the oldest and most common infectious diseases. About one third of the world population is believed to be infected with TB. Fortunately, only about 5% of these infections progress to active disease. The other 95% of infected people are said to have a dormant or latent infection; they do not develop any symptoms, and do not transmit the disease. Tuberculosis is caused by a rod-shaped bacterium, or a bacillus, called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. An infection is initiated following inhalation of mycobacteria present in aerosol droplets discharged into the atmosphere by a person with an active infection. The transmission process is very efficient as these droplets can persist in the atmosphere for several hours and the infectious dose is very low – less than 10 bacilli are needed to start the infection. Once in the lung, the bacteria meet with the body’s first-line defense - the alveolar macrophages. The bacteria are ingested by the macrophages but manage to survive inside. Internalization of the bacilli triggers an inflammatory response that brings other defensive cells to the area. Together, these cells form a mass of tissue, called a granuloma, characteristic of the disease. In its early stage, the granuloma has a core of infected macrophages enclosed by other cells of the immune system. As cellular immunity develops, macrophages loaded with bacteria are killed, resulting in the formation of the caseous center of the granuloma. The bacteria become dormant but may remain alive for decades. This enclosed infection is referred to as latent tuberculosis and may persist throughout a person's life without causing any symptoms. The strength of the body’s immune response determines whether an infection is arrested here or progresses to the next stage. In healthy people, the infection may be stopped permanently at this point. The granulomas subsequently heal, leaving small calcified lesions. On the other hand, if the immune system is compromised by immunosuppressive drugs, HIV infections, malnutrition, aging, or other factors, the bacteria can be re-activated, replicate, escape from the granuloma and spread to other parts of the lungs causing active pulmonary tuberculosis. This reactivation may occur months or even years after the initial infection. In some cases, the bacteria may also spread to other organs of the body via the lymphatic system or the bloodstream. This widespread form of TB disease, called disseminated TB or miliary TB, occurs most commonly in the very young, the very old and those with HIV infections. Tuberculosis is generally treatable with antibiotics. Several antibiotics are usually prescribed for many months due to the slow growth rate of the bacteria. It’s very important that the patients complete the course of the treatment to prevent development of drug-resistant bacteria and re-occurrence of the disease.

6 Super-Subtle Thyroid Cancer Signs I Ignored After experiencing cold- and allergy-like symptoms for two months in 2014, journalist Christine Coppa, now 36, was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. While most of the 56,870 diagnoses each year have a 90 percent survival rate, the disease primarily affects women, who comprise 75 percent of the cases. Coppa, who underwent a thyroidectomy and a round of radioactive iodine treatment taken in pill form, explains the symptoms she missed prior to her diagnosis. 1. I had a weird cough. I had a barky, dry cough for two months and didn’t see my doctor because I didn’t have a fever, sore throat, or any other symptoms of the common cold. Plus, it was springtime, and I was spending my nights on a dusty baseball field with my T-baller son, so I assumed it was allergies. But it turned out my cough was an indicator I had a tumor in my neck. “A persistent cough can be due to a thyroid mass pressing on the trachea or the windpipe,” says Tom Thomas, director of head and neck reconstructive surgery and transoral robotic surgery at Morristown Medical Center. However — and a big however — he says a cough by itself is not an indication that someone definitely has a thyroid malignancy. 2. I choked on my food. Next on the list of weird things that happened: choking on raw carrots at work and suddenly not being able to swallow the bite. I played it cool and coughed the carrot into a tissue. It never happened again but after seeing the ultrasound scan of the mass covering the right side of my thyroid, I found out why I had trouble swallowing. “The thyroid gland sits in front of the windpipe, just below the voice box,” says Christopher Fundakowski, head and neck cancer surgeon at Temple University Hospital, adding that as nodules grow, they may begin to push on the windpipe and esophagus. "Most of the time, this symptom alone does not mean you have cancer,” he says, adding that difficulty swallowing is relatively uncommon — the nodule has to be large enough and positioned in a way that it impedes the normal passage of food. Still, Dr. Fundakowski suggests making an appointment with your doctor to take a swallow study, an exam that uses X-rays to try to identify abnormalities in the movement of food and liquids from the mouth into the esophagus. He also says an ultrasound or CT scan can help diagnose the problem. 3. I was short of breath. When I think back to all of the symptoms I ignored, trouble taking a deep breath or gasping for a breath takes the cake. I’ll never forget the feeling of not being able to breathe right but because I have anxiety disorder, I counted to 10 and thought of a happy place, telling myself it was probably the onset of a panic attack. A day later, when that didn’t work, I went to a walk-in clinic. The doctor said it was allergies and prescribed an asthma inhaler. The symptom persisted but it was around the time I was set to see my doctor for my yearly checkup. “Difficulty breathing can be associated with both thyroid cancer and large thyroid goiters," Dr. Fundakowski says. “In the case of thyroid cancer, we worry about the tumor invading into the windpipe. However, this is rare." He adds that occasionally thyroid cancers will grow fairly rapidly and squeeze or push on the windpipe, which can cause shortness of breath — particularly when active, lying down, or breathing quickly when anxious. 4. My voice changed. My voice became raspy and whispery, and my friends called it sexy, but it was another indicator I had a tumor in my neck. The thyroid gland sits below the larynx, so if a nodule is pressing on the voice box, it can cause hoarseness or voice changes, according to Sandeep Samant, chief of head and neck surgery at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. "An internal evaluation of the patient's airway and movement of the vocal cords is mandatory if there’s a malignancy and surgery is required," he says. However, it's crucial not to panic — remember, hoarseness can be due to other reasons such as laryngitis. 5. My ear hurt. My weirdest symptom was mild ear pain.

While many end up being nothing to worry about, it's important to have any changes that you notice checked by a doctor -- just to be on the safe side. Here are the potential breast cancer symptoms to watch out for. Warning This video does not replace actual medical advice. Always consult your doctor with any questions or concerns. Step 1: Do a monthly self-exam Start performing a monthly self-exam as soon as your breasts are fully developed. Checking yourself regularly is important -- you need to know what your breasts feel like normally so you can recognize any changes. Examine yourself several days after your period ends, when your breasts are least likely to be swollen and tender. If you're no longer having periods, choose a day that's easy to remember, such as the first or last day of the month. Keep in mind that it's not uncommon for breasts to feel lumpy due to benign fibrocystic breast disease, cysts, scar tissue, infections, and other causes that have nothing to do with cancer. Tip For instructions on how to do a breast self-exam properly, go to "Breastcancer.org":http://www.breastcancer.org/. Step 2: Have lumps checked Know what you're feeling for: a lump that feels different from your breast's normal lumpiness, like discovering a pebble in your oatmeal. Though many lumps are benign, anything that feels new or odd should be checked by your doctor -- even if you've recently had a clean mammogram. Check for lumps in your armpits, too. Tip Cancerous lumps are more likely to be hard, painless, and unmovable. Step 3: Beware of dimpled skin Look for visible changes, like dimpled, puckered, thickened, reddened, or scaly breast skin, or a flattening or indentation on the breast. All are potential breast cancer symptoms that should be evaluated. Step 4: Note nipple changes Recognize the nipple changes that can indicate breast cancer -- pain; redness; scaliness; itching; skin thickening; the nipple turning inward; or discharge other than breast milk. Step 5: Have pain and swelling evaluated See your doctor about swelling in all or part of your breast, or breast pain. Though swelling and soreness are usually no cause for concern, these symptoms can be signs of a rare but aggressive form of the disease known as inflammatory breast cancer. Step 6: Get regular check-ups Have your doctor perform a breast examination at your yearly check-up, and begin annual mammograms at age 40. If you have a family history of the disease, tell your doctor: they may suggest that you start having mammograms at an earlier age. Knowing the signs of breast cancer -- and being proactive about knowing how to recognize them early -- is the best way to protect yourself. Did You Know? In a "Breastcancer.org":http://www.breastcancer.org/ survey of more than 2,200 women, 37 percent said they first detected their breast cancer with a self-exam.
