What is cancer?
Cancer is the uncontrolled and uncoordinated growth of body cells which invade surrounding normal tissues and might spread to distant organs if not checked in time.
Why does cancer occur?
Cancer is caused by damage to the DNA (genetic material) within our cells. Damage to the DNA happens in all normal cells, but the majority of this damage is repaired by our own body. Sometimes this damage is not repaired properly, which can lead to changes in the properties of the cell (for example cells may acquire the ability to grow and divide rapidly). Accumulated DNA damage can eventually lead to cancer.
Are those with poor health more prone to cancer?
Cancer can affect physically fit individuals as well as individuals with poor health. People who are very immunocompromised (e.g. individuals infected with HIV, or on immunosuppressive therapy) have an increased risk of developing certain types of cancers. However, most cancers are caused by a combination of factors that may include tobacco use, alcohol use, your genetic makeup, poor diet, physical inactivity, being overweight, and exposure to chemicals.
Can smoking and tobacco use cause cancer?
Yes, smoking a cigarette, beedi, hookah, pipe or cigar increases your chance of getting cancers, some of them being preventable. Eating pan with tobacco and chewing tobacco increases your chance of getting cancers of the head and neck (mouth, lips, nose and sinuses, voice box, throat), esophagus (swallowing tube), stomach, pancreas, kidney, bladder, uterus, cervix, colon, rectum, ovary and acute myeloid leukemia (blood cancer).
Can drinking alcohol lead to cancer?
Studies have shown that people who drink alcohol are more likely to get mouth cancer, liver cancer, breast cancer, bowel cancer, and throat cancer, which includes pharyngeal cancer, laryngeal cancer and cancer of the food pipe (oesophagus).
Which cancers are more found in men than women?
Cancers of the mouth, throat, lung, skin, gullet, stomach, rectum, larynx, kidney, bladder and brain are more common in men than in women.
What are the some of the warning signs and symptoms of cancer?
  • A change in bowel or bladder habits
  • A sore that doesn’t heal
  • Unusual bleeding or discharge from any opening in the body
  • Unexplained weight loss and loss of appetite
  • Difficulty in swallowing or chronic indigestion
  • An obvious change in a wart or mole
  • A nagging cough or persistent hoarseness of voice
How does a doctor confirm you have cancer?

There is no single test available that can precisely diagnose cancer, so we need to depend on combination of tests to detect and confirm cancer.

  • A thorough history and clinical examination.
  • Diagnostic tests/procedures generally used for cancer diagnosis may include:
  • Imaging (X-rays, CT scans, and fluoroscopy)
  • Laboratory tests (including tests for tumour markers)
  • Tumor biopsy
  • Endoscopic examination
How can we protect ourselves from cancer?
If we take care of the following, we can reduce the risk of getting cancer. Awareness regarding healthy lifestyle (e.g. avoid tobacco, limit alcohol intake, maintaining a healthy body weight, awareness of warning signs and symptoms of cancers, regular health checkupsand undergoing recommended screening for cancers.
Can cancer be passed on from parents to children?
It is estimated that only 5-10% of all cancers are passed on from parents to children (hereditary cancers). However, most cancers are not caused by these rare, cancer-predisposing inherited DNA.
What is chemotherapy?
The use of drugs or chemicals to treat cancer is called chemotherapy. These drugs target and destroy dividing cells. Because chemotherapy drugs kill dividing cells, these drugs can cause side effects, since they affect healthy body tissues where the cells are constantly growing and dividing (such as the skin, bone marrow, hair follicles and lining of the digestive system).
What are the side effects of chemotherapy?

Although, chemotherapy is an effective treatment for many types of cancers, it often causes side-effects as these drugs damage the healthy cells of our body. Common side-effects include:

  • Nausea, vomiting
  • Pain/headache, muscular aches, stomach pain, tingling and numbness of fingers and toes
  • Sores in mouth and throat
  • Diarrhoea or constipation
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fever
  • Hair loss
Is the hair loss related to chemotherapy permanent?

Hair loss related to cancer treatment is usually temporary. In most cases, hair will grow back over a period of time (usually 6-12 months). Talk to your doctor/counsellor if you are concerned about hair loss related to cancer treatment. He/she will be able to guide you regarding better management of this side effect.
