“You know, all that really matters is that the people you love are happy and healthy. Everything else is just sprinkles on the sundae”.
What good is it to have all wealth and no health? What good is it to have everything in life and see your loved ones suffer with disease? What good is it to be there, and just be there without being the help needed?
Well, health is the most precious thing in any living being’s life span. It is a shame that how a human being spoil their own health because of their habits, ignorance and arrogance.
We human beings allegedly the most intellectual and refined animals on this planet know the good and the bad better than any other animal, but we choose wrong over right most of the time in spite of our intellect. Wrong things are more like addiction and to do the right thing there is always a choice in our human behavior.
Further narrowing down the problems of human life, let’s talk about one major health issue “CANCER”. This is one of those health problems which I personally don’t want even my worst of enemies to get. Basically cancer is a small tumor in the body which starts as small as a dot on the white paper and becomes as big as a rock.
As I feel for every “yin” in life there is a “yang”. There is a branch of medicine which deals with cancer related problems and it is called “oncology”. And one such city in India for treatment of cancer is Hyderabad.
There are many different types of specialized oncology that oncologists in Hyderabad can provide services for:
- Surgical oncology
- Gynecologic oncology
- Pediatric oncology
- Medical oncology (Chemotherapy)
- Radiation oncology (Radiotherapy).
The basic tests to diagnose cancer are X-ray, blood test, scintigraphy, tumor markers, Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT), Positron Emission Tomography (PET), CT- scanning, MRI- scanning etc. and most of these tests are provided by these cancer institutes in Hyderabad.
In order for our body and all the internal organs to function properly; a proper and healthy diet is required with a regulated cell growth and physical activities.
The genesis of the cell changes (cancer) in one’s body is still an unclear mystery. But however, lifestyle, unhealthy diet, exposure to harmful chemicals and radiation, viral infections are few of the reasons stated as cause of this disease. An estimate of 6.7 million people across the globe die every year from cancer. Cancer can start in almost any body cell, there are many types of cancer found.
- Lung cancer
- Breast cancer
- Cervix cancer
- Ovarian cancer
- Blood cancer
Many cancer hospitals in Hyderabad provide treatment for cancer affected patients. Treatments involve surgery or Radiotherapy or Chemotherapy.
- Radiotherapy is a process of shrinking the affected cancerous cells through high energy X-rays.
- Chemotherapy is the process of killing these cancerous cells through drugs.
- Surgery is removing the tumor physically in the form of surgery.
It is predicted that the number of people dying from cancer will increase in the next 15 years as the world population is growing tremendously.
All we can say is
EAT => RUN => SLEEP
And then REPEAT! 🙂
Until next time,
