National Cancer Awareness Day
Due to our food habits and lifestyle, small mistakes that we make knowingly or unknowingly can cause many fatal diseases. Cancer is one of them. Cancer can be life-threatening if not detected early and treated appropriately. According to the latest reports of the World Health Organization, cancer is the leading cause of death worldwide today. Yes. WHO revealed that most of the deaths are caused by Conyer. In 2020, nearly 10 million people died of cancer. One out of every six deaths is Conyer Annamaria.
That’s why awareness is necessary.
At present, around 45 lakh people are suffering from cancer in our country. Many studies have revealed that 40 to 50 percent of cancer patients are fighting for their lives in the last stage. Treating such people is a challenge. Unfortunately, the mortality rate is also likely to be high. Cancer treatment is long-term. During the treatment, the patient becomes depressed not only physically but also mentally. The only way to reduce cancer cases is to be aware of the symptoms and causes of cancer. What Dr. Dinesh Pendharkar, Director of Sarvodaya Cancer Institute in Faridabad says.
Early detection of cancer is not available in our country’s health system. Based on symptoms alone, treatment is started first, and then tests are done to diagnose cancer. Therefore, along with the public, doctors should also be aware of the symptoms associated with various cancers.
What are the main causes of cancer?
It is noteworthy that 40 percent of all cancers in our country are oral cancers. People above 50 years of age are especially at risk of oral cancer. Generally, cancer occurs due to four main reasons.
- Viral infections such as human papillomavirus (HPV) and hepatitis
Away from tobacco.. away.
Tobacco is the leading cause of oral cavity cancers. The risk of cancer is 40 percent higher if tobacco products are used in any form, such as chewing or smoking.
These are the symptoms of oral cancer.
Oral cancer can be detected early compared to other cancers. Users of tobacco products can easily identify by looking at their mouth area in a mirror.
- Often oral
- Inflammation of the gums
- Bleeding while brushing
- Swelling/pain in the neck area
Doctors should be consulted immediately if these symptoms appear. Doctors examine the mouth area and collect a biopsy sample of the mouth for testing. People who chew tobacco in general have a higher risk of oral cancer. Unlike the initial stage, if oral cancer is detected in the last stage, the treatment will have to be continued for years. In most cases, death ensues.
Dr. Dinesh Pendharkar suggested that the only way to prevent oral cancer is to avoid tobacco use and awareness.
