Cancer is a shocking disease- the fact that it is on the increase in Leeds is frankly, alarming. A lot of this has been put down to the stresses of modern living, the foods we eat, smoking and excessive drinking. But the gene that causes cancer can also be hereditary. Identifying it- In the early stages, you may suffer from jaw ache, sore throat swelling in the neck, difficulty in swallowing or suffer constantly from weeping sores in the mouth; this is the time to get a check-up. Blood tests and tissue biopsies will identify any signs of the disease. Treating it- Normally to remove the cancer, you will require chemo or radiotherapy. In some case, physical surgery will be called upon. Healing- Once you have been cleared, you have to sit down with someone and take a long hard look at your lifestyle, because it has to change. Some people choose counselling and then opt for a new regime- vegetarian foods, healthy diets, physical exercise, stopping smoking, cutting out drinking and a strong oral hygiene program- all these have been tried by people post-cancer, because the psychological affect the disease can have on your mind can be traumatic and by healing it with a new regime, it can help you to battle against the problem returning. Cancer means a fight and if you are ready, you’ll beat it and the proof is in statistics- more and more people are beating the disease than before.
