Hearing the word, cancer, can strike absolute fear in the strongest of a person’s heart. There are many different types of cancer and each comes with many different symptoms. However, most of the time, cancer is treated the same.
Knowing about cancer is the first step to recovery. If you unfortunately have cancer and you are looking for an alternative way to manage your pain or discomfort, consider using hypnosis for pain management at Quays Clinic.
Hypnotherapist Ian Smith has helped many people to learn effective pain management techniques.
Learn About Cancer
Cancer is a disease where the bodies cells begin to mutate and grow out of control. People get tumors, or malignant growths, due to the massive cell division that takes place.
Common Cancer Symptoms
There are a few symptoms of cancer that can be seen in all of the various cancer types:
- Skin color change.
Reproductive Cancers In Females
Annual screenings can help to diagnose these cancers, and effectively treat them in their early stages.
- Cervical cancer.
- Ovarian cancer.
- Breast cancer.
Colon cancer is also called colorectal cancer. That is because it involves not only colon cancer, but also bowel cancer and rectal cancer. Unfortunately some symptoms do not begin until the disease becomes much more advance.
Some symptoms to look out for will include bowel changes, abdominal cramping, rectal bleeding and overall weakness.
The early signs of prostate cancer are similar to testicular cancer. They both cause pain in the groin area, pain while urinating and swelling. Prostate cancer will also cause many men to have a hard time urinating, and then sudden urges to go to the toilet to urinate.
Unfortunately once the symptoms are present, the cancer has often spread. Just like breast cancer, these cancers can often be diagnosed with regular screenings which then can be effectively treated.
The main types of lung cancer include non-small cell lung cancer, small cell lung cancer, and lung carcinoid tumors.
The most common form of lung cancer, however, is the non-small cell lung cancer. The symptoms include chest pain, a nagging cough, inability to catch your breath, feelings of weakness and constant wheezing.
Lung cancer unfortunately spreads quickly so once the symptoms are spotted, treatment must be immediately sought from your doctor.
The most common type of cancer is actually skin cancer. There are three main types, melanoma and lymphoma.
Basal skin cancer is extremely common and is caused by too much exposure to the sun. Skin cancer can be prevented for the most part with protection from the sun.
My personal advice would be only to stay in the sun for a maximum of fifteen minutes at any one time and forget about trying to get a tan.
Very little is known about stomach cancer except that it affects far more men more than women, and often at retirement age.
The most common form of stomach problems is not cancer, but rather is Helicobacter Pylori, which may be a precursor to the cancer itself.
Liver cancer can be very difficult to diagnose and incredibly difficult to treat. It is often diagnosed with blood tests and often strikes those who drink far too much alcohol.
There is always hope so please do not just give in to cancer. More and more ways to beat cancer are being discovered as cancer research grows.
A wonderful way to alleviate the pain caused by cancer is to use hypnosis and hypnotherapy. This form of therapy wont cure cancer but will definitely help with the pain and discomfort, as well as helping to get rid of the negative thoughts that cancer causes.
Please remember get regular checkups and if you are in any doubt immediately contact you doctor for further assistance.
