Cancer, cancer or cancer, is a group of diseases caused by uncontrolled cell division. Today’s science still does not know how this anomaly was caused, except that it can say with great certainty that it is a consequence of a genetic material disorder, and it relies heavily on statistics.
So, let’s see what cancer is and how it occurs in theory. The human body contains 50 – 100 billion (50,000,000,000,000 – 100,000,000,000,000) cells of various types and functions. But they all have genetic material in common. Finished, all cells (except special ones, such as sexual and nervous) have a similar life cycle and division mode. Cell division is the way our bodies grow and how new younger ones replace the older cells of our tissues. Also, the division is important because it serves to heal tissue after injury, for example.
Genes are the parts of cells that define their behavior and functions. Thus, some genes serve to multiply cells. Also, those cells serve to count its existence and not to tell when a cell will die. But damaged genes bring cells into an abnormal state in which they multiply too quickly by not fulfilling their positive purpose in the organism. Damaged genes can also delay the death of an old cell that is no longer able to perform its normal functions due to age, but since it is alive, it certainly performs some functions. One of such cells’ main functions is to make a group of similar cells around them, called a tumor. The tumor does not have to be cancer!
The tumor can be benign and malignant. Benign tumors are of regular shape, clearly demarcated from the surrounding tissue, do not have the ability to spread to other organs, and are easily obliterated. On the other hand, malignant tumors can spread through the blood and lymph fluid to other healthy tissues, where they continue to grow and form new colonies called metastases. The initial tumor is also called the primary tumor, while its metastases are also called secondary tumors.
Cancer can appear anywhere in the body, and a person can become ill without knowing it for years. In fact, when a person starts to feel symptoms, doctors know that it may be too late … However, our experience shows that there are cases that have lived much longer than doctors thought they would live.
It is known that there are several million precancerous cells (those with altered genetic material) in every organism, but man has innate mechanisms for recognizing and isolating such cells. This mechanism works by causing precancerous cells to age, thus preventing multiplying. Science has isolated certain genes without which this process is impossible, such as p53 and Pten.
This process takes place in each of us throughout life, and in people who we say have cancer, a disorder of that innate ability has actually occurred. As a result, these abnormal cells develop unhindered and unite into groups and tissues. Thus, cancer development begins. These undead tissues feed on the same sources as healthy cells – through the blood. As these cells have impaired functions and multiply too fast, far faster than healthy cells in the body, it begins to lose the battle against them.
What do the statistics say?
GLOBOCAN is 2018. He calculated that close to 13 million patients would appear in the world every year, of which over 7.5 million died of cancer. In women, breast cancer is cancer with the highest percentage of patients and mortality compared to other types of cancer. Namely, 23% of women who have cancer have breast cancer, and 14% of women who die from cancer die from the consequences of this type of cancer. In men, lung cancer is the most common, affecting 17% of those with cancer, and this cancer causes 23% of deaths. In women, lung cancer accounts for 11% of all people living with cancer.
This research also showed that people from developed parts of the world are significantly more likely to get cancer. 56% of those who have cancer are from developed parts of the world, and 64% of those who die from cancer are also from more developed parts of the world.
In Serbia, about 120,000 people have cancer, and 18,000 die every year. As in the world, lung cancer in Serbia takes far more lives than other types of cancer; as many as 3-4 times more victims succumb to lung cancer than under all other cancers. Colon cancer is the second leading cause of death in our country, taking 2,300 victims a year. In women, breast cancer is the most common, followed immediately by cervical cancer. Prostate cancer in men is predicted to exceed lung cancer incidence in the future.
The causes of cancer are still largely unknown …
Scientists prefer to use the term “risk factors” instead of “causative agents.” Cancer risk factors can be listed and will certainly be listed below, but no cancer has a clear cause, and none of the risk factors work as a rule. These risk factors result from decades of research in surveys, interviews, experiments, statistical analyses, and the like. This means that in practice, smokers get lung cancer more often than non-smokers, for example. And in general, people who do not take care of their diet, lifestyle, physical activities get sick more often than those who take care of it.
Risk factors in cancer are gene mutations, immune system disorders, some hormones, certain viruses and bacteria, an unhealthy environment, and an unhealthy lifestyle, which means improper diet, lack of physical activity, smoking, long-term occupational exposure to carcinogens, and excessive exposure to ultraviolet rays and more.
The most serious disease today – cancer
According to many, cancer is the most difficult incurable disease of today. Scientists work every day to test new drugs, new therapy types, treatment methods, and treatment, but the solution eludes us. No matter how much effort is invested, it turns out that there is no cure, and the percentage of patients and mortality of this serious disease is not decreasing. On the contrary, it is constantly growing in many segments. Or is that so? Every third person gets sick in the modern world (developed areas are especially high risk). Yet, some did not die of cancer, who survived.
We try to find solutions from individuals’ and groups’ experiences. Still, we mostly rely on official Eastern medicine research, which confirms that some fungi and herbs help cure cancer. With chemotherapy, radiotherapy, change in diet and lifestyle, the products we offer will strengthen your immunity, help your body recover from debilitating types of therapies (such as chemotherapy), force your cells to start an organized fight against cancer cells by stimulating them on the microbiological level. You will feel stronger, and you will be able to cope with the disease that is bothering you.
Cancer is a disease of today. This means that people get sick because of something that was not in their lives until only a century and a half ago. Today we eat unhealthily, vegetables and fruits that must be an indispensable part of the daily diet are grown in a polluted environment and sprayed with cheap chemicals. The water we drink is treated to make it as clean as possible, but it certainly has ingredients from the environment that cannot be removed … We eat fast and unhealthily, buy food at the kiosk instead of cooking, and eat food at home. We live faster than our bodies can handle and push ourselves to the edge of our capabilities. We smoke or are a victim of smokers in the house. We drink alcohol in various quantities; we take more and more drugs that are becoming the most developed under-grain business globally. We don’t go to the doctor because something hurts us, but we take a painkiller to know exactly what it is intended for. The list goes on and on, and it is clear that we need to change something.
When the stop comes, we all try to evaporate the crooked drones, but then it may be too late. Reading this text means that you are ready to do something, both on a conscious and unconscious level. Be persistent in what you decide to change. Be disciplined. Your life is in your hands, and if you firmly decide to defy cancer proudly, only then can you expect to be cured and not get sick anymore. It’s up to you. Some people survive, so can you.
Listen to everything the doctor tells you. The doctor wishes you well and knows what is best for you about your condition. He is guided by clear and statistical calculations and tells you what the chance of survival is, and if there is none, he tells you how long you will live. We know cases that have lasted much longer than what the doctor predicted. This is because the doctor has in his head the black statistics that apply to the majority who will not move a finger, who have already surrendered and come to terms with the fact that their life is over. And there are solutions … Of course, it is much more difficult, almost impossible, when cancer metastasizes several organs and tissue types. But don’t let that happen. Preventively include what will help your body get back on its feet and cope with all kinds of diseases in your diet. When cancer has already occurred, please do not despair; take the recommended doses of what we offer you with all the therapy your doctor advises.
Of the mushrooms we advise, there is the first one reishi. Reishi strengthens the body’s immunity and is rich in various antitumor compounds. Research at the Institute National Cancer Center in Tokyo showed that reishi or Ganoderma Lucidum has a very high tumor inhibition rate (in some cases, up to 100%). Read more about it here. Shiitake also has a strong anti-cancer effect because it has a similar composition as reishi, only in a slightly weaker concentration. But shiitake is edible, unlike woody reishi, which cannot be used in food but only in drink or extract. Also, maitake is great since it is similar to these two, but we do not have it in our range. Mushroom Cordyceps Sinensis indirectly helps cancer patients by strengthening their bodies. Most importantly, Cordyceps is heavily involved in utilizing oxygen in the body. It is known that cancer cells do not need oxygen to produce life energy like healthy cells. In other words, if we made oxygen enter a cancer cell, it would start functioning normally and would no longer be a cancer cell, and Cordyceps helps with just that. How Cordyceps helps people taking chemotherapy read here. Mushroom lingzhi or Phellinus Linteus also has a strong effect on human immunity.
We especially recommend astragalus because it is rich in various minerals and vitamins necessary for human normal functioning. It also contains ingredients that a person has almost nowhere to take in a modern diet (such as selenium). Ashwagandha is another plant that has been shown to stop developing lung, breast, and colon cancer cells (albeit in the laboratory).
What are the types of cancer?
It is an increasingly common misconception that cancer is a type of disease, and people more or less know that there are more types of cancer. But how many types of cancer are there, and what are those types? What is the importance of knowing the type of cancer patient?
There are over 200 types of cancer. Our body contains about 60 different internal organs, and each of them is made up of different tissues (the man has four types of tissues: epithelial, connective, muscular, and nervous). Each tissue consists of a certain type of cells. As cancer can develop from almost any type of cell, it is clear that each organ can develop more than one type of cancer. Of course, some types of cancer on a particular organ are more common than others.
The treatment of cancer largely depends on the type of cancer, and that actually means that it is necessary to find on which organ cancer started to develop and then on which type of tissue of that organ. Only then does the treatment begin … Here, we will list and briefly describe the most common types of cancer.
Lung cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the world. By far, most people with cancer have lung cancer, and the mortality rate has been rising for more than twenty years. He takes more than 5,000 lives a year in Serbia.
Several types of lung cancer can be divided into microcellular and non-microcellular lung cancer. Microcellular occurs in 20% of cases, metastasizes early to the brain, liver, bones, and adrenal glands. Non-small cell lung cancer is far more common (80%), and some forms are adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. The rarest form is giant cell carcinoma.
Smoking is responsible for 85% of lung cancer cases. Lung cancer in non-smokers exposed to tobacco smoke is on the rise. Other risk factors are exposure to radon, asbestos dust, petroleum products, air pollution, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, tuberculosis patients, patients with previous tumors of the upper aerodigastric pathways, genetic predisposition.
Symptoms include persistent cough, coughing up blood and blood clots, difficulty breathing, frequent pneumonia, loss of appetite, weakness, anemia. With cancers that are localized in the upper part of the lungs, there is a pain in the shoulder girdle, and due to the pressure on the blood vessels, there is swelling of the veins in the neck, swelling of the eyelids …
Lung cancer can be diagnosed by lung radiography, CT, PET, bronchoscopy, FNA sampling, mediastinoscopy.
you can treat lung cancer with surgery, chemotherapy, or radiotherapy. These treatments can be performed as an individual or combined. The treatment decision is made by a multidisciplinary team depending on a large number of factors, primarily the type of tumor, stage of the disease, general condition, and internal medicine findings. Disease stages for non-small cell lung cancer and treatment options
IA T1N0M0 surgery
IBT2N0M0 surgery +/- chemotherapy
IIA T2, 3N0, 1M0 surgery +/- chemotherapy
IIB T2, 3N0 / 1M0 surgery +/- chemotherapy
IIIA T1-3N1M0 IIIB T1-4N3M0 radiotherapy + chemotherapy
IIIB T4N0-3 M0 chemotherapy IIIB T all N all M1 chemotherapy, palliative radiotherapy
Breast cancer is characterized by uncontrolled cell division, rapid growth, and metastases in both regional lymph nodes and distant tissues.
They are divided into two larger groups: more common tumors of glandular origin and fewer sarcomas tissue. Glandular tumors can be invasive or non-invasive, depending on the stage of the diseasTheyhey are divided into ductal and love according to the original place.
Factor and risk
After the age of 30, the risk increases exponentially. The most common age in which women get sick is after 60. Earlier cancer of the breast and the ovaries, uterus, or colon increases the risk of a new disease. Less important factors include: earlier first menstruation, later menopause, later first childbirth, and absence of breastfeedinPositiveive family history is a significant factor in people who have two or more close relatives with breast cancer. Other factors are obesity and lack of physical activity.
There was thickening of the breast, new changes in skin ripples, or nipple retraction—secretion from the nipple (especially bloody), new asymmetry.
Clinical examination, mammography, ultrasound examination. In exceptional cases, magnetic resonance imaging or PET is used.
The treatment decision is made in consultation, and the oncology surgeon, medical oncologist, radiology, ist, and pathologist must be present. The decision is made according to the international TNM classification.
In third place in Serbia in frequency. This cancer is completely medically curable if detected in time.
– squamous cell carcinoma – squamous epithelial cancer (85-90%)
– adenocarcinoma – cancer of the glandular epithelium (10-15% of cases)
It is widely believed that the main cause of cervical cancer is a sexually transmitted HPV virus of a certain type (the most dangerous is type 16 and type 18), which transforms cervical cells into malignant ones. The combined presence of several types of this virus is common. Therefore, risk factors would be related to promiscuity, early first intercourse, unprotected intercourse, and other types of risky sexual behavior. Also, the presence of HIV or immunodeficiency of the organism is among the risk factors.
The occurrence of vaginal secretions, bleeding after intercourse and outside the menstrual cycle, pelvic pain, frequent urination, constipation, swelling in the legs.
Gynecological palpation and speculum examination, Pap test, colposcopy, and pelvic ultrasound. If there is a suspicion that cancer has developed, a biopsy of the cervix is performed. It is necessary to do CT or magnetic resonance imaging in some cases.
At least a gynecologist, radiotherapist, and internist chemotherapist participate in the console deciding on treatment’s modality. The consortium chooses between three treatment modalities. First, in cases where cancer has not yet metastasized or has conditionally metastasized locally, surgery is performed. In stages II, III, and IV, radiation therapy is performed, and in some cases, in combination with chemotherapy. Recently, together with radiation, the so-called potency with cytostatics was performed.
