  • Screening for Specific Cancers Widespread screening for cervical, colon, and likely breast cancer is beneficial for certain age groups. A number of organizations have considered whether or not to endorse routine use of certain screening tests. Because these groups have not used the same criteria to judge whether a screening test should be endorsed, they have arrived at different recommendations. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF), the Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care, and the American Cancer Society (ACS) publish screening guidelines (Table 78-3).

  • Some people believe that if cancer has spread to other parts of the body (called metastatic cancer), it is the same as advanced cancer. This is not necessarily true. You can have widespread cancer, but it can still be treatable and sometimes curable. Examples of this are testicular cancer and certain types of leukemia and lymphoma.

  • It is hard to find adrenal carcinomas early and they are often quite large when diagnosed. Adrenal carcinomas are often found earlier in children than in adults because adrenal cancers in children more commonly secrete hormones. Children will show outward signs of excess hormone production early. For example they may develop very early signs of puberty due to the sex hormones that sometimes are produced by adrenal cancer. In adults, these tumors may be found early by accident, when a CT scan is done for some other health concern.

  • A wide array of substances derived from the diet have been found to stimulate the development, growth and spread of tumours in experimental animals, and to transform normal cells into malignant ones. These are regarded as suspected human carcinogens. So,many dietary constituents can increase the risk of developing cancer, but there is also accumulating evi- dence from population as well as laboratory studies to support an inverse relationship between regular con- sumption of fruit and vegetables and the risk of specific cancers.

To find out more about genetic testing, please see our document, Genetic Testing: What You Need to Know. The American Cancer Society recommends that women who have (or may have) HNPCC be offered yearly testing with...

  • Endometrial biopsy: This kind of biopsy can be done in a doctor's office. A very thin flexible tube is placed into the uterus through the cervix. Then suction is used to remove a small amount of endometrium. The suction usually takes less than a minute. The discomfort is much thing like menstrual cramps and can be helped by taking a drug like ibuprofen before the test. Sometimes numbing medicine is put into the cervix just before the test to help reduce the pain. Ultrasound (see below) is often done before the biopsy. This helps the doctor find any suspicious areas...

Early detection of breast cancer by routine mammographic screening of women without clinical signs or symptoms facilitates earlier treatment and has enhanced survival. As pointed out by Dr.

  • The second domain, environmental pollutants, encompasses exposures that might bring about chronic conditions or exacerbate these conditions. We include in this domain air, water, and other toxic pollutants. For example, repeated exposure to toxic waste sites may result in malignancies later in life (American Cancer Society, 2002), which in turn may lead to functional decline (Teno et al., 2001; Michael et al., 2000). Thus, exposure to water contamination or toxic wastes is likely to affect health status, particularly though cumulated effects in the lifecourse.
