The Most Fatal Cancers

Cancer is feared by everyone. Many lives were lost because of Cancer. What are the most fatal Cancers that we should be aware of?

Cancer is one of the most feared diseases. What is Cancer anyway? This is a disease wherein bad cells rapidly grow, outnumbering the good cells of the body. As a result, a cancer patient’s body will no longer be able to normally function. If left untreated a Cancer can spread in other parts of the body, especially the nearby organs from where it initially started.

There are more than a hundred types of Cancer, mostly named after the organ that is mainly affected. Others have successfully survived their fight against Cancer; others succumbed to death.

Here are two of the most fatal Cancers:

1. Prostate Cancer

This type of Cancer develops in the prostate gland, part of the male reproductive system. The most common manifestations of Prostate Cancer are difficulty when having sexual intercourse and when urinating.

In most cases, Prostate Cancer develops slowly; thus, prognosis is only discovered during its advance stage. This would normally leave the cancer patient so hopeless in his fight against Prostate Cancer.

Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is the test that will detect if the symptoms you are experiencing are symptoms of Prostate Cancer.

2. Lung Cancer

This type of Cancer is not very gender-specific. Men and women can become victims of Lung Cancer. Before 1930s this type of cancer was not prevalent. However, when tobacco and cigarette smoking became man’s habit, cases of Lung Cancer have increased rapidly.

In the United States alone, approximately 1500 people die from Lung Cancer everyday. The funny thing is there are cases recorded from which the cancer patient is not even a first-hand smoker. What does this mean? Even if you are not a first-hand smoker, you have the social responsibility to encourage these smokers to stop because your life is at stake as well.

Many say life begins after Cancer. Many cancer patients realize the beauty of life when they realized their days are counted. That, prior to their fight against cancer, these cancer patients lived an unhealthy life, where smoking, drinking, drug abuse, were habits hard to let go.

While it’s true that these Cancers may have been recorded as the most fatal, the purpose of these facts is to make people be aware that prevention is always better than cure. For those who are experiencing these diseases, if you have the determination to win your fight against cancer, you will be free from it. Help yourself get well soon.

pancreatic cancer is also part of the most fatal type of cancer. Prognosis is usually poor.

Yes, pancreatic cancer has a very low survival rate and moves very quickly. I have known a couple people who died very young with it.
