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!

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:
- dark, green, leafy vegetables
- citrus fruit
Things to avoid are:
- 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.
