    Numerous psychosocial factors influence patients' decisions about cancer treatment. Stage 4 melanoma (advanced melanoma) means the cancer has spread from where it started to another part of the body. According to Cancer Research UK, doctors use biological therapy, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgery (for melanoma that has spread). There is a widespread belief in a conspiracy to hide cancer cures. Cancer is a mult...

      Some researchers believe that prostate cancers are caused by the accumulation of genetic mutations. Some mutations occur spontaneously when cells in the body copy their genetic material and an error is introduced into a gene. Other mutations occur in germline cells (sperm and egg) and then subsequently can be passed from parent to child, from one generation to the next. Most prostate cancers aren’t caused by in...

        Jessica Citronberg said: I think the better route to go would just be to have a healthy diet. Iron-rich red meat - beef, pork, lamb - can increase the risk of colon cancer. Cancerous cells are iron-overloaded (iron-rich, iron-saturated) cells. Primary tumors always develop at body sites of excessive iron deposits. Some might expect that since the vegan diet contains a form of iron that is not that well absorbed, vega...

          Local/Regional Iron Overload and Lung Cancer Risk. Lung cancer is the deadliest type of cancer for both men and women. Each year, more people die of lung cancer than of breast, colon, and prostate cancers combined. Lung cancer treatments (surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, biological therapy, etc.) can't successfully beat lung cancer. Clinical methods of iron deprivation can successfully suppress inoperable lung tu...

            New cancer classification system may revolutionize diagnoses and treatments. Cancers may be classified by their primary site of origin or by their histological or tissue types or even by their genetic and molecular types. Human cancer classification is currently based on the idea of cell of origin, light and electron microscopic attributes of the cancer. Recent innovative techniques in biology have provided a wealth ...
