Treatment For Cancer

Cancer is the disease that is dreaded as the worst cause of deaths in the world. One, it can't be prevented unlike AIDS which has no cure but is preventable. There is no effective and safe treatment for cancer.

Treatment for cancer exists in a wide rage; surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, clinical trials, proton therapy, complementary medicine, and cutting edge technologies. All this treatments are there but none of them guarantees good end results. When one is on the operating table under going either of the treatments, it is a matter of life and death. If one is lucky to live his/her life would never be the same again. One has to bear with the side effects that come with this disease such as hair loss sometimes even one of their body part like a leg might be amputated.

Many foundations are being formed so as to assist those inflicted by cancer. The main purpose of the foundations is to assist with the finances that cancer brings about. It is very difficult for a single person to be able to pay for treatment of cancer disease.

There are also different organizations that provide assistance to the infected. There are those who give free transportation for those seeking distance treatment. Others provide free of charge accommodations and other supportive services to patients and their families when confronted with medical emergencies. While some pharmaceuticals companies have programs to assist patients of cancer cover or ease the cost of the medications they manufacture.

Before going for treatment for cancer, the ailing person must make a decision before choosing any of the treatments. This is because they all have different complications and also it depends with the kind of cancer one may have. Otherwise let's continue wishing for a better treatment or better yet a "cure".

Generally, breast cancer is a much more violent disease in younger women. Generally a lump that is cancerous will not be tender to the touch; it will be stiff, non-movable, and not change quickly in size. If a lump is gentle, it may possibly be a cyst or a swollen lymph node. Genetic counseling and genetic testing should be advisable for families who may carry a history of hereditary form of cancer.
