Cancer is one such name that nobody wants to hear. It is disease in which the cells of the human body begin to multiply around the sounding organs or tissue; such is the phenomena in almost all kinds of cancer. Some types of cancers form solid masses, also known as tumours. These tumours are actually a mass of cancerous tissue. Other kinds of cancer, such as blood cancer, also known as leukaemia (scientific name), generally is without any kinds of tumours. Unlike a natural cell, cancer cells do not follow a normal life-cycle of regular or healthy cells; in fact, it gets stronger and multiplies over a period of time.

Cancer is an umbrella term for a disease encompasses the changes in the body cells which results in unregulated or uncontrolled growth and multiplication of diseased cells. Although the progression of the disease could be similar but the speed at which the cell division occurs could vary depending upon the type of cancer there is. In some types, the speed of division of cell is very fast whereas in other kinds the process of cell division could be much slower.

Although there is no set limit for the types of cancers there are, yet the most common types of this dreaded disease are:

  • Breast cancer manifests cells of the breasts.
  • Prostate cancer is one of the most types of cancer in males. In this particular kind of cancer, the cells grow in a small walnut-sized gland producing seminal fluid.
  • Basal cell cancer is cancer of skin that starts in the basal cells.
  • Melanoma is one of the most serious and deadly type of skin cancer.
  • Colon cancer is a cancer of colon or rectum which is located digestive tract’s lower end.
  • Lung cancer as the name suggests is cancer of the lungs. People who smoke are more predisposed to this type of cancer.
  • Leukaemia is cancer that affects the body’s ability to fight off infection.
  • Lymphoma is the cancer of the lymphatic system.

Mental Health – Lucky Humpers

Last years proved that mental health plays a big role in our health and it could be responsible (in a way) for developing various types of cancer. How to improve your mental health? It’s easy, give it some quality ‘thought food’ – something like Lucky Humpers – the original series of Reality Kings where young guys are doing their best to sexually please their MILF partners. It’s explicit but it’s what makes up men happy, right? Don’t fight with your urges – have a mental release of stress and you will be feeling so much better! As for Lucky Humpers – head to and watch as many videos as you want, for free.

Common Causes Of Cancer

Common Causes Of Cancer

There is no way to outline certain factors or common factors which could cause cancer, yet the cell division which happens in this disease happens either because one’s lifestyle or could be hereditary.

Various factors which could result in gene mutation, which could lead to cancer are smoking, radiation, viruses, cancer-causing chemicals (carcinogens), obesity, hormones, chronic inflammation and sedentary lifestyle. In today’s time and age, we are exposed to various kinds of carcinogens (cancer causing chemicals) in the environment. There are various behavioural factors that can lead to cancer, such as excessive smoking, working in radioactive environment, excessive exposure to sun and radiation. Genetic pre-disposition also plays a big role in various types of cancer.

Ways To Avoid Cancer

It is believed that one of the main causes of cancer is genes or hereditary pre-disposition, but researches have shown that approximately 5% of cancer is caused due to this reason.  This shows that non-hereditary causes are more likely to cause cancer.

If such is case, then avoiding cancer by changing errant lifestyle and making better lifestyle choices can reduce the risk of cancer to a great degree. Studies have shown that certain fruits and vegetables, if incorporated in your daily diet can significantly reduce the risk of cancer. Some of those vegetables and fruits are:

Foods you should eat and avoid
  • dark, green, leafy vegetables
  • pepper
  • tomato
  • eggplant
  • citrus fruit
  • carrot
  • broccoli
  • kale

Things to avoid are:

  • tobacco
  • excessive intake junk or preserved food
  • losing or gaining too much weight
  • excessive sun exposure
  • errant lifestyle
  • inadequate medical care


There are certain kinds of cancer that are easily preventable. Cervical cancer is one such type of cancer that can be easily prevented by taking timely vaccine for the same. Other than the vaccine, there are certain tests like PAP which can safely predict the onset of the HPV virus in the body. Another tried and tested procedure to deal with cancer is chemotherapy and radiation. This particular line of treatment involves using chemical substances to treat cancer by cytotoxic and other drugs. The treatment could be aimed at prolonging life or reducing the symptoms of the disease.


“Cancer treatment”

Cancer is by far one of the world’s deadliest medical conditions. Being diagnosed with cancer often sends ripples of shivers across the spines of patients and their loved ones. It is perhaps one of the most daunting life experiences that any human being can recount. In the past, being diagnosed with cancer was equivalent to announcing a death penalty. But, the story is different today following the coming of numerous viable treatment methods. As such, there are many people who have managed to survive despite having suffered from cancer for a prolonged period of time. Here is a look at some of the most inspiring stories told by cancer survivors. These are real life stories told by real patients.

Ron, Anal Cancer

He learned that he had anal cancer in 2013 following a series of diagnoses. After being diagnosed, he signed up for treatment at one of the centres run by the Minneapolis Radiation Oncology Pa.

His life has never been the same. He has successfully managed to keep his cancer under control by means of radiation therapy.

Mary, Breast Cancer

Mary was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015, after which she went through a series of consultations to ascertain the best treatment option for her. It was determined that radiation oncology was best for her case of breast cancer. She has been on treatment since 2015 and has continued to respond positively to radiation oncology.

Brad, Prostate Cancer

Brad learned that he had prostate cancer in 2011. He quickly requested for the scrutiny of his state of cancer to determine the right treatment option. Doctors recommended the use of radiation oncology, a treatment option which he still favours up to this day.

Mellissa, Breast Cancer

“Mellissa, Breast Cancer”

Mellissa had breast cancer a few years before she was diagnosed. She and her dad Brad (indicated above) had both acquired treatment from the same treatment centre. Since her diagnosis in 2015, she has been receiving radiation oncology treatment from one of centres in Minneapolis.

All the stories above are real and were told by real cancer survivors. However, the names used are false to protect the privacy of the individuals. All the individuals indicated above had received their cancer treatment from the Minneapolis Radiation Oncology treatment centre. It is a group of highly motivated experts who are specialised in the treatment of cancer through the use of radiation oncology. Located along France Avenue in Minneapolis, the Edna centre plays host to many cases of cancer.


“Mostly grilled food
caused for cancer”

The search for the cure for cancer is ongoing. Over the years, cancer has demonstrated its unparalleled ability to cause catastrophic damage to the cells of a human being. It can spread from one body organ to another causing untold devastation in its wake.

Fortunately, keeping cancer under control is not impossible. Following the coming of various treatment options, keeping cancer on its toes is actually possible. There are actually many treatment options that are available today. Doctors have a wide range of options to go for depending on the state of the cancer patient they are dealing with. There are options such as immunotherapy, targeted therapy, radiotherapy, stem cell therapy and chemotherapy among others.

Cancer Patients And Food

“What you eat is
what you are”

But, the coming of numerous treatment options does not suggest that cancer patients do not have to worry about diet. As a matter of fact, cancer patients should be more worried about diet than any other human being alive. This is mainly because cancer affects body cells causing them to become cancerous. The body cells lose their natural state to replicate in a normal manner. This upsets the wellbeing of the body. The use of treatment options empowers the body to fight back. But, foods also have a role to play in as far as promoting the generation of healthy cells or aiding the generation of cancer cells. This is why it is always advisable to rely on a great combination of foods. Suppose you are a cancer patient and you are wondering what kind of foods you have to avoid to promote the wellbeing of your body, consider the information below.

  • Deep fried foods
  • Foods containing too much salt
  • Processed meats such as sausage, bacon and ham
  • Foods that contain too much sugar
  • Red meat
  • Salted mustered green
  • Barbecued foods
  • Baked meats
  • Oily foods
  • Most canned foods such as pickles, century eggs, jams and more
  • Grilled foods

“Healthy foods to avoid
cancer diseased”

All the foods indicated above are associated with certain attributes which make them unfit for consumption. As a cancer patient, you have to try by all means to search for foods that are able to promote your wellbeing rather than distort it. Additionally, the choice of foods often depends on the kind of treatment that has been prescribed.

For patients that are undergoing chemotherapy treatment, it is always advisable to avoid consuming foods that are rich vitamin supplements. These are to be avoided since they act as antioxidants and may affect treatment. Most processed foods are to be avoided since they may contain nitrites which may be carcinogenic. On the overall, patients living with cancer are advised to reduce the consumption of alcohol and smoking or to stop altogether.

Deep fried foods such as fish and meat are to be avoided at all costs. It is understood that subjecting animal protein to intense levels of heat leads to the production of carcinogenic substances which may affect the body in various ways. These are often referred to as heterocyclic amines.


“Cancer awareness”

There is no human being who does not dread being diagnosed with cancer. As a matter of fact, it is the last thing that any human being can imagine. You may not even wish to imagine being diagnosed with any of the forms of cancer that are known today. The medical condition is dreadful and capable of causing various side effects including damaging body organs and healthy body cells. For this reason, it is one of the leading causes of death in the world. Thousands of deaths are registered by cancer every year. This applies to all forms of cancer that exist today including breast cancer, lung cancer and even prostate cancer among others.

“Cancer diagnoses”

But, being diagnosed with cancer does not mean that you will die within a few months or even days. Rather, it just means that your health is at risk of deteriorating in the future. It may not necessarily mean that your death is around the corner. Provided the cancer is detected early, it can easily be treated through the use of one of treatment options that are available today. Suppose you are a patient of cancer and you are wondering how best you can keep your cancer under control, consider the following information.

First Things First-Undergoing Check-Ups On A Frequent Basis

“Cancer frequent check-up”

When you have been diagnosed with cancer, the last thing you can do is to shun medical check-ups. This is very important as it can have a huge impact on how well you can respond to treatment. Going for visits to your preferred medical institution can afford you an opportunity to learn about the state of your cancer. It is one of the best ways to monitor the condition and prevent the various detrimental effects that are associated with it. Your doctors will also let you know whether you are responding positively to treatment or not. In case you need to switch to another form of treatment, this will also be communicated to you following the end of the check-up process. Therefore, the need to go for screening on a frequent basis cannot be overstated.

Choosing The Right Treatment Method

“Choosing The Right
Treatment Method”

The most important thing worth bearing in mind is the fact that various treatment options are available for individuals living with cancer. This is a good development as it affords patients living with cancer an opportunity to single out a treatment option that is suited to their current state of cancer. Some of the major treatment options that are available today include radiation oncology, surgical oncology and medical oncology. Others include chemotherapy and targeted molecular therapy. Each of these options is associated with both pros and cons. Doctors analyse the state of the patient before they can come up with the right decision. Once the scrutiny of the patient is complete, the doctors are able to ascertain the right treatment option to go for. Provided the treatment option that has been administered is the right one, a patient is bound to recover.

Living On A Healthy Diet

“Living On A Healthy Diet”

Living on a healthy diet is not debatable if you have cancer. The simple fact is that having cancer simply means that the body’s wellbeing has been compromised. Consuming food that is not healthy may deprive the body of the much-needed ability to fight back. Major organs such as the heart, the kidney and the liver all become affected by diet. This also applies to the body’s immune system which has to be at its best if the right against cancer is to be won. Avoiding excessive alcohol is also one of the major ways to keep the body in perfect shape at all times.

From the information above, it is very clear that managing cancer effectively is both possible and important.

These are the major guidelines that can help you to successfully keep cancer under control and pave way for a happier and healthier life.
