Advanced Cure For Cancer In Texas!!

Nov 8th 2013 at 3:44 AM

Cancer is a category of disease identified by out-of-control cell growth. It is one of the most feared diseases in the world and has been studied since its incubation. Currently there are more than 100 types of cancer, and categorizations are based on the type of cell that is affected first.

It harms the body mainly by forming lumps or masses of tissues with budding cancer cells called tumours. It keeps on growing and spreading rapidly, thus affecting and interfering with normal body functions such as digestive, nervous, respiratory and blood flow. Since these cells are mutated, they compete with healthy cells for survival and ultimately kill them.

The factors that cause cancer is diverse, complex and even now after endless research it is still partially understood. There are many things that increase the risk of cancer; tobacco, dietary factors, certain infections and high dose of radiation being some of the most common causes.

Detection of cancer cells can be done by screening tests, medical imaging and presence of certain symptoms and signs. Once it is detected and the seriousness measured, the type of diagnosis is determined by microscopic tissue examination. Cancer is a fatal disease, the chances of surviving greatly depends on early detection, location, type and extent of the disease at the start of treatment. According to a global survey, in 2007 cancer accounted for about 13% of all human deaths worldwide.

Being a deadly and common disease, scientists and researchers have introduced many different types of cures and treatments. Depending upon the type and extent of the disease, a patient can be successfully treated and completely diagnosed. Now days, cutting-edge Cancer Center treatments are available in Texas:

Chemotherapy: It involves the use of medications and antibiotics to destroy cancer causing cells. It is one of the most common methods used, but it has serious side effects including hair loss, fatigue, anaemia and hearing impairments.

Mammosite Therapy: It is a newly developed diagnosis for breast cancer patients. Radiation that can kill cancer cells is precisely directed into the site.

Prostate Seed Implants: This involves implanting tiny radioactive pellets or seeds, near the affected area of the tumour. These pellets release low energy radiation which breaks down or decays the tumour cells.

Radiation therapy: It combines extremely precise and accurate tumour imaging process, after which hundreds of thin beams are radiated towards the exact tumour location. It is a very fast diagnostic process with minimum side effects.

With so many successfully treated cases, there is no reason to lose hope. Cancer may be fatal and dangerous, but it can be cured with the right diagnosis and care.
