Women with a first-degree relative with breast cancer have a 40-fold higher risk of breast cancer
According to the latest statistics published by the World Health Organization, cancer is a disease that is increasingly affecting people around the world: it is estimated that in 2018 the number of illnesses will reach 18.1 million and the death to 9.6 million.
Doctor Pătrulescu admits to seeing many cases of advanced colorectal cancer – about 70 percent of the diagnoses he says are so. Many young people end up in such a limiting situation and at the height of many doctors, as the expert says in oncology.
"There are also cervical cancers of the recent HPV, but most of them have a precursor HPV infection. HPV strains 16 and 18 are the most aggressive. In most cases, if the infection persists and is not monitored, it leads to the development of cancer. For cervical cancer, the symptoms appear late in development and when there is little – bleeding, pelvic pain – and the disease is widespread. Therefore, gynecological checks should be performed regularly and lesions should be discovered early. Cervical cancer is treatable cancer if detected early"The doctor says.
The situation is not happy even with breast cancer, many patients have reached a doctor with large tumors, even 12 cm. Oncologists say that many breast cancers develop slowly, sometimes even in 7 years. All the time ultrasound and mammography can reveal and lead doctors to the most effective therapies. These are based on biopsy, essential in the treatment of cancer, but in view of the suspicion of many people.
"It is further assumed that if the biopsy tumor is "dispersed" to use the language of the patient. Non-tubed tumor can not be treated, a tumor that will not be treated sooner or later will metastasize. Unfortunately, we have heard medical experts who believe this and many other educated people. If I get a biopsy patient in my office, like an oncologist, I'll tell him I can not cure a tumor if I do not know what type of tumor is. The term "cancer" is not enough. There are many subtypes that are treated differently, you need to know all the details of the disease before you decide on the treatment. And when I say I need a biopsy, I often have a question and it will not be scattered? The answer is: No, it will not be scattered"He explains to the oncologist the importance of the biopsy.
Prejudice also persists in the effectiveness of chemotherapy, radiotherapy or surgery. There are still patients who postpone a doctor's visit and use natural therapies.
"You do not know how many young patients die in the eye because they choose this naturist treatment. And if it's honest, alternative treatment is not so natural. The more exotic the plants, the more they believe. It is very difficult to fight these prejudices. I'm trying to tell patients that oncology treatment, which includes radiotherapy, chemotherapy and surgery, is the only effective one. Cancer is an aggressive disease that we must treat aggressively. Perhaps natural treatment will help, but there is still no evidence in medical literature to prove their effectiveness. They have not been studied and have often been associated with side effects that may be serious: liver failure, renal insufficiency. A study published on Medscape has shown that natural treatments reduce the survival of cancer patients"Warns Dr. Andreea Patrulescu.
The same hopes also concern anticancer diet. This is not scientifically proven, so specialists recommend caution when accepting them. The diet of patients with cancer should be balanced, rich in vegetables, fruits, cereals, olives, fish and fermented dairy products.
