Bowel cancer is sometimes also called Colorectal cancer and is a form of the disease which starts in either the small or large intestine or in the rectum. It is an illness that can actually begin to develop quite slowly over a period of several years, with at first, symptoms which are the same as a host of other illnesses.

One of the main symptoms to be aware of is a change in bowel habits, for instance suffering from either constipation or diarrhoea, or finding blood or mucus in the stool. It’s important to seek medical advice if this continues for longer than two weeks without any explanation.

Bowel cancer is the third most common type of cancer that is diagnosed in the United States in both men and women. Once it has been detected, however, it has a very high recovery and survival rate with treatment varying from case to case, but typically involving some surgery to remove any tumors or malignant tissue followed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

Carcinoma of the breast is typically thought of as a female only condition; however, it can affect men also. Cases in men are rarer, but are detected in exactly the same way as in women. Regular breast checks, which should be done on average once a month and can be carried out at home by you, are the best way of finding any irregularities or lumps that may occur.

Other signs and symptoms to look out for include any irregular enlargement of the breasts, discoloration of the nipples with perhaps cracking, bleeding or discharge from the area. Abnormalities such as lumps on the breastbone or under the armpit can also be signs to look out for as well.

If found early, survival rates are high and recovery after appropriate treatment such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and in some cases mastectomy, is highly likely.

Cancer that is found in the bones is usually, though not exclusively, a secondary type of the disease, which means it has spread from another area in the body. Whilst typically, many cancers will start to appear in older people, bone cancer seems to be the one form of the disease that is found more often in youngsters in it’s primary form, meaning it hasn’t spread from anywhere else. However, there are many cases in which people develop tumors in their bones that are completely benign rather than malignant.

Treatment is done by surgery to remove the tumor and the good news is that in nine out of ten cases, much of the bone can be saved and in the case of bone cancer in limbs, amputation does not need to occur.

When someone develops a tumor in their brain, the symptoms it may give are typical to a number of other conditions. They include feelings of sickness or vomiting, dull, constant headache and in some cases seizures. Other problems may include dizziness, fatigue, partial paralysis, difficulties with balance, tinnitus, visual disturbance or partial sight loss, double vision, tremor and various other symptoms which might lead to an initial diagnosis of stroke. Tumors can be positioned in different places within the brain and according to where they are they can cause the different symptoms experienced.

Treatment is entirely dependent on the size and position of the tumor. However, it usually consists of surgery, followed by either chemotherapy or radiotherapy or both. Some patient may also be prescribed steroids. These are given to help reduce any swelling in the brain tissues which can cause added problems with sickness and seizures. Malignant brain tumours (grade 4) often have a poor prognosis, little more than a year. Lower grade tumours may result in a good recovery or they may not, however early they are treated. Many will recur and some will progress to grade 4 within a few months or years. Almost all will result in some permanent deficits.

After the skin, the liver is the second largest organ in the body and it plays such an important role in keeping both the immune system and the overall general health of the body in good shape.

When cancer occurs in this organ, it can cause symptoms such as a swollen abdomen, weight loss and ultimately conditions like jaundice as the liver cannot effectively deal with the bile it produces.
Liver cancer as a primary cancer is eminently treatable and as the liver is an organ that can regenerate itself, surgeons may sometimes only have to remove a small piece of the organ before other treatments such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy can commence. It can be more difficult to treat as a secondary, but still very beatable.

Lung cancer can start either in the tissue of the lung itself or in the windpipe or the main airway. It is most likely to occur in people who have been or are heavy smokers, but can also occur in people who have been passive smokers as well.

Symptoms include a heavy, persistent cough which has got worse over time, coughing up blood or phlegm and being short of breath. Other less common symptoms might include having difficulty swallowing or a very hoarse voice.

Recovery from lung cancer very much depends on how early is detected, however, the early stages can be difficult to diagnose. Surgery may involve taking away a small part of the lung, or a removal and transplant depending on the severity of the case.

Leukaemia is another name for cancer of the blood and it has many different forms, but typically is a disease which affects the white blood cells in the body.

It is also divided into two separate subcategories. Chronic, in which it is just the blood that is affected and acute, whereby the blood and bone marrow are affected. The main symptoms of the illness are cases of frequent bruising, recurrent infections that won’t clear up and sometimes abnormal bleeding that does not stop easily.

The main treatment for the illness is chemotherapy combined with perhaps a bone marrow transplant in acute cases. Leukaemia is known to affect more children than adults; however, there is an increased risk of contracting it over the age of fifty.

Ovarian cancer is often known as a silent cancer, in that its symptoms can be very hard to detect until the disease is sometimes quite advanced. However, it is one of the more curable forms of the illness with good prognosis if detected and treated as soon as possible.

Signs and symptoms of the illness include a bloated abdomen, loss of appetite may occur with the feeling of fullness after eating only relatively small amounts, weight loss may occur even thought the tummy is swollen.

Ovarian cancer can be detected by using a blood test called a CA-125 marker which can spot high levels of hormones that can trigger off the illness. However, raised CA-125 levels can also be a sign of other hormone conditions like endometriosis, so this test should not be used on its own to diagnose. In some cases a hysterectomy may be recommended alongside the traditional treatments of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Some women who have already had breast cancer opt to also have a hysterectomy too, and vice versa as family history can mean a slightly increased risk of contracting one or the other.

Just as with ovarian cancer, pancreatic cancer can also be a silent disease in that its symptoms are not easy to spot and sometimes there are none at all until the illness is quite advanced. This means that sadly, although it is treatable, the prognosis may not be as positive for anyone who has this form of cancer.

The symptoms include loss of appetite, back pain and abdominal discomfort, which can also be related to other conditions, so if any of these have been present for a while it may be worth seeking medical advice to rule out all the possible options.

This cancer is usually diagnosed by way of a CT scan. A combination of surgery, called a pacreatoduodenectomy in combination with chemotherapy and radiotherapy is a good option to give the best chance of recovery.

Stomach cancer can bring on a number of different symptoms such as indigestion, bloating and constant belching. However, in many people who have these symptoms it does not mean they have cancer, as they can be attributed to other conditions like IBS or plain anxiety.

Other symptoms include feelings of sickness and bringing up blood. The blood may be fresh and red or darker brown like coffee granules. Sometimes, there may be dark blood in the bowel motions which can look like tar.

Stomach cancer is usually diagnosed by endoscopy which is used to find and take small amounts of abnormal looking tissue for further diagnosis. Surgery to remove a tumor or diseased tissue might take place, alongside treatments such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

Special diets may also be given as surgery to remove parts of the stomach may make eating and digesting certain foods more difficult for a time. However, prognosis can be very good if this illness is detected and treated early.
