Transcript of Cancer
Before surgery, however, a doctor called an anesthesiologist will make sure that the person is asleep during the operation. This medicine also prevents them from feeling any pain while to operation is happening. Chemotherapy Chemotherapy is the use of anti cancer medicines to treat cancer. These medicines are sometimes taken as a pill or an injection (shot), but usually, it's given through a special intravenous line, also called an IV line. An IV is a small plastic catheter (straw like tube thing) that is put through someone's vein, usually on the hand or arm. The line is attached to a bag or pump which puts the medicine in the blood, where it can travel throughout the body and attack the cancer cells. Radiation Radiation is a process in which the energy is given off in the firm of particles or rays. For example, the sun gives out one kind of radiation.
But the radiation therapy is also one form of treating cancer. Radiation can be given in 2 ways. A person may get external radiation, meaning that the radiation is directed to the outside of the body, or they may receive internal radiation, which is directed to the inside of one's body. The doses of radiation are small, but they are also strong enough to kill all the cancer cells. Breaks from radiation give normal cells a chance to grow back and recover. Here are some pictures of cancer cells~ Leukemia cells Breast cancer cells hodgkin's disease cells Lung cancer cells Remission Remission is a good word for anyone who has cancer. It means that all the signs of cancer are gone from the body. After surgery, chemotherapy or radiation, the doctor will do tests to see if the cancer is still there, and if there are no signs of cancer, then the person is in remission. remission is the goal when any person goes to the hospital for treatment. Sometimes, this means additional chemotherapy might be needed for a while to keep cancer cells from coming back. And luckily, for many people, continued remission is the very happy ending of their cancer experience. Good news The number of people who beat cancer goes up each year because of new treatments. The researchers do their best to come up with a way to get rid of cancer for good. We could help them by donating money to them, but in the meantime, let's be thankful for all those researchers who work so hard to put cancer in it's place. THE END! Some kinds of common cancers include: -Leukemia
-lung cancer Benign tumors are also considered to be normal tumors, however, unlike malignant tumors, they do not spread and are non cancerous. They are also less dangerous than malignant tumors. The two main kinds of tumors Malignant tumors Benign Tumors Malignant tumors are cancerous tumors that grow faster at a rate than a benign tumor. It also spreads to other body parts and can result in death.
