Cancer types

Skin cancer occurs more often in older people (with equal frequency in men and women). Usually it appears on the face and skin, usually on the scar spots, open sores and fistulas. Sometimes the birthmark and warts turn into cancer. Any long-term skin lesions that have the propensity to thickening, always have the potential to transform into cancer.

Lip cancer develops in all cases on the places of cracks and damaged lip tissue. Sometimes these spots can be covered with crust, and after it falls, you would notice the cancer infected area. The development of this form of cancer is usualy caused by smoking.

Breast cancer is often a painless solid tumor, and in most cases it is discovered accidentally. All women over 40 years old are encouraged to regularly conduct self-examination of their mammary glands and see the doctor at least once a year.

Esophageal cancer signs start with difficulties in swallowing of rough food, then even liquids. The Esophageal cancer is often accompanied by pain in the chest area.

Uterine cancer often occurs on the cervix (cervix cancer) on the spot of erosion, polyps, etc. Sometimes uterine cancer is caused by the uterus damage during abortion and childbirth. Cancer of the uterus has no symptoms for a long time and is manifested only when the tumor reaches fairly large sizes. The first symptoms of the disease would be heavy whites, longer menstrual cycle and bleeding, the pain usually appears much later.

Rectum Cancer often develops in the presence of polyps in the rectum. The most frequent and obvious symptom of this form of cancer is bleeding from the rectum, when the tumor begins to crumble. Cancer of the rectum can be mixed with hemorrhoidal bleeding and the patient does not see the doctor on time. Hemorrhoids are not considered a precancerous condition, but the disease may occur at the same time with rectum cancer.

Stomach cancer is usually preceded by lengthy stomach illness: ulcers, polyps, some forms of gastritis. Stomach cancer patients do not pay attention to the initial symptoms: general body weakness, pale skin and loss in weight. Later, develops a distaste for meat food, appetite loss, nausea and vomiting. Pain appears in the final stages of the disease.

Lung cancer is first manifested by dry cough in the morning and then at night. Later the cough becomes wet with mucous sputum. In some cases there is a chest pain, increasing during coughing, sometimes shortness of breath and a slight increase in body temperature, sometimes blood spitting. The significance of smoking in the development of lung cancer is unquestionable.
