How is coronavirus transmitted?

CORONA VIRUS                               Coronavirus is a common virus that causes infections in your nose, sinuses or throat. Most coronaviruses are not dangerous. Some of them are serious. About 858 people died of respiratory syndrome (MERS) in the Middle East, first in Saudi Arabia in 2012, and then in the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and elsewhere in Europe. In April 2014, the first American was hospitalized for MERS in Indiana, another incident reported in Florida. Both have returned from Saudi Arabia. The MERS outbreak in Korea in May 2015 was the largest outbreak outside the Arabian Peninsula. In 2003, 774 people died of acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) outbreaks. As of 2015, there are no further reports of SARS patients. MERS and SARS are the types of coronary virus. What is Coronavirus? A new source of coronavirus has infected hundreds of people in China and fears it may spread throughout the world. The virus, which was confirmed to have spread to Beijing last w

Learn about lung cancer. Lung cancer treatment .

         I have chosen lung cancer as the next topic in my series. There is a close relationship between lung cancer and smoking. Lung cancer is also associated with a decreased risk of developing lung cancer. Smoking is more prevalent in men and women with lung cancer than in women.

Other causes of lung cancer include passive smoking, exposure to metals such as arsenic, chromium, beryllium, and nickel in various occupations, exposure to radiation, exposure to air pollution, and genetic causes.

Symptoms may include bleeding with the mucus, unexpected weight loss, and shortness of breath. The cause of these symptoms is lung cancer by a doctor's X-ray or CT scan.

Once diagnosed with lung cancer, a biopsy is necessary to determine and treat it permanently.

Lung cancer can be divided into three main types. that,

¥ Small Cell Cancer

¥ Adeno Carcinoma

¥ Squamous cell cancer.

The combination of both adenocarcinoma and squamous cell cancer is also known as non-small cell (non-small cell).

Depending on the type of cancer, the remedies can vary greatly.

If the cancer is in its early stages, surgery can be done to remove it. Most often it is cancer that is confined to one part of the lungs and does not spread to lymph nodes or lymph nodes. CT scans, PET scans, and sometimes thoracoscopy techniques help to obtain this information.

Once removed, chemotherapy can reduce the risk of relapse by 10% over the next five years. Often, two medications (Cisplatin / Vinorelbine) should be used for treatment for about three months.

Sadly, many lung cancers cannot be diagnosed as advanced or advanced cancer.

Don't smoke 

Among the lung cancers mentioned above, small cell carcinoma is one of the fastest spreading cancers. Almost 100% of all cancers occur in patients who smoke. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy can cure a small percentage of small cell tumors if they are confined to one area of ​​the lungs.

When a small cell tumor spreads, it is treated with a combination of two types of chemotherapy. Treatment should last for three to four months. Early treatment can help control most (70-80%) of cancers. But this can only be done for about nine months. When this type of cancer begins to recur, treatment options are less likely.

The other two types of cancer, the Adeno Carcinoma and the Squamous Cell Cancer, are very different in behavior and treatment.

There is a rapid increase in therapies for adenocarcinoma cancers.

If a patient has an adenocarcinoma type, there is a specific mutation in the cancer cells. Some mutations, called EGFR and ALK, can be administered early in the course of non-chemotherapeutic drugs. In particular, the EGFR mutation is more common among non-smokers and Asian women. With the discovery of these drugs, the life expectancy of an infected patient increased from 9 months to over a year. Rarely, in a few years, there are chances that cancer can be controlled with the help of these drugs. When cancer does not comply with these drugs, the patient may need to be treated with chemotherapy based on the fitness of the patient.

Since the above mutations are not seen in squamous cell lung cancer, chemotherapy must be performed from the beginning depending on the patient's suitability.

           The suitability of the treatment should be evaluated by a CT scan, or at least an X-ray, which is performed every few months (usually once every 3 months) during the treatment of a patient with advanced cancer. Doing so can change the treatment over time.

There are several drugs that can be used to treat lung cancer. If the patient is physically fit, a combination of two medications are first used. The treatment should last about 4 months. Then, Adenocarcinoma cancers are treated for a long time, usually with only one drug, but treatment for small cell and squamous cell types can be stopped after a few months. Scan is done every 3 months and is re-treated when cancer begins to develop.

Immunotherapy (eg Nivolumab) has recently become one of the therapeutic options for cancer regrowth. The side effects of immunotherapy are less frequent than chemotherapy, and the side effects are very different from those of chemotherapy. Immunotherapy can treat recurring cancer by up to 20%. However, patients with terminal cancer often respond to the drug for a long time.

Maintaining the quality of life of every patient is very important. Radiation therapy can be used for the treatment of opioid pain relievers.

Every cancer patient has his or her own complications and I hope to explain them in a separate article.

           Generally, lung cancer is less likely to be diagnosed during its stages. According to the Cancer Organization, lung cancer is the second most common cancer in the world. According to the American Cancer Society, as of 2018, there are 234,000 recorded lung cancer deaths and 154,050 deaths from lung cancer.

Almost every year more people die from the disease than all other cancers. Worse still, the disease is most commonly caused by older people in their 70s or older. The number of lung cancer patients under the age of 45 is yet to be determined.

Men are more likely to develop the disease than women. It is estimated that one in every 17 women and one in every 15 men is at risk of developing lung cancer. Smokers and non-smokers are included in this calculation, and smokers are found to be at higher risk for the disease.

The probability of surviving the disease varies with the time of diagnosis. If the cancer is detected at the earliest possible stage, it can be completely recovered. Approximately 430,000 people live with the disease. Early detection is important if you are to get rid of the disease. The following are some of the characteristics that make lung cancer detectable in its early stages.

            01. Cough Diseases

The most common symptom that can be suspected to be lung cancer is a cough. Respiratory system coughs should be cured within a week or two, and if they persist, it may lead to lung cancer. So if you have a dry cough that lasts for several weeks, seek medical attention immediately.

02. Frequently changing coughing conditions

This is important for people who smoke regularly. If you have a persistent cough that lasts longer than the usual cough, or if you have coughing or bleeding, immediately seek medical attention. The situation may be worse than you think.

03. Difficulty in breathing

If you have frequent breathing difficulties, you may run the risk of contracting the disease. The cause is cancer, which is caused by cancer cells blocking the respiratory tract. It is also caused by the accumulation of some liquid fluids in the lungs.
So be careful if you have any breathing difficulties during minor activities, such as climbing stairs or walking.

04. Pain in the chest area

The cancer can cause pain in the chest, back, and shoulders. You may feel that the cause of these pains is frequent coughing, but the cause is lung cancer. Therefore, it is advisable to seek medical attention immediately if there is any pain in the chest area.

05. Pathology

Pathology is caused by obstruction of the respiratory tract. The reasons may vary. Although it may look like pancreatitis or allergies to certain dusts, it is best to consult a doctor. But it is not a symptom of early-stage lung cancer.

06. Sound roughness when speaking

If you notice a significant change in your voice, it matters. Your family can understand this well. Even if the voice changes because of a cold, it should be restored within a week. So, if it lasts longer, that could be the root of a bigger problem. The roughness of the voice causes the cancer cells to spread into the nerves.

07. Weight loss

One of the obvious signs that you have suspected lung cancer is the sudden onset of weight loss. This is due to the rapid absorption of cancer cells into the body.

08. Pain in bones

This is another symptom you may suspect of having lung cancer. This is a condition in patients at risk for lung cancer. It is advisable to consult a doctor if there is pain in the body during the night and excessive pain and bodywork. This can lead to conditions like breakage of eight. If not treated initially, cancer can spread to the spinal cord and to the hands and feet. So keep an eye on the pain conditions you are experiencing.

09. Headache

Untreated headache is a sign of severe lung cancer. If you have frequent headaches, you have a higher likelihood of cancer spreading to your brain. But most headaches are not cancer symptoms. But if the blood vessels in the brain are blocked due to cancer, it is a significant condition.

10. Frequent infection

Frequent bronchitis and pneumonia are the hallmarks of acute lung cancer. This is mainly due to the blockage of respiratory vessels by cancer cells.

11. Difficulty in swallowing food/water
Eating is a challenge for a lung cancer patient. This condition can also lead to diseases such as dehydration or malnutrition, which can interfere with liver function.

12. A slight shudder when speaking
This is another filling feature that you should consider. 

Lung cancer can directly interfere with the nervous system and adversely affect the coordination of the body (ie, the proper functioning of the body). This can occur during treatment or after many years of treatment.

Treatment for lung cancer

Treatment usually begins after a few initial tests. These tests help determine when the cancer is present. This includes some blood tests. Treatment varies depending on the stage of the cancer.


If detected at the onset of lung cancer, surgery may be performed to remove the lung tumors. This is why you should focus on the primary lung cancer symptoms. But if the cancer has already spread, this will fail.


This causes the destruction of lung cells. It is also a basic form of treatment.

                Many causes of cancer have been identified. 

Tobacco-based products such as cigarettes, beedi, cigarettes, chewing tobacco, and artificial sweeteners are the most common.

The most common causes of these diseases are oral cancer and lung cancer.

There are many traditional and ayurvedic medicines to cure cancer caused by any cause.

It has been identified that Murangia granules and Murangia leaves have high medicinal properties to fight any cancer.

Eating more aloe vera and aloe vera can help prevent cancer.

Inappropriate food

Foods such as bitter gourd, tomatoes, pineapple pickled salmon oils, sour bananas, and anchovies should not be taken during cancer treatment. Foods such as bitter gourd have been shown to improve the quality of herbal remedies, especially in the case of chemotherapy.
