Assalamualaikum, let me introduce myself. I’m Nor Shahirah binti Safari from DEC 5C. This blog were created due to the DNMC subject and to complete the assessment given by Mr. Zulfakri.
Well, I choose cancer as my topic because I want everyone to be aware of this disease. This is because cancer is not something that many people should neglect off! Yes. So, in this blog I’ll try my best to give full entry about the Cancer disease.
Okay, let’s get started!
First, let me brief about definition of cancer.
As we all know, cancer is the illness that most people feared of. According to National Cancer Institute, cancer is the name given to a collection of related disease. It happened when some of the body’s cells begin to divide without stopping and spread into surrounding tissues.
|4 Stages of Cancer|
We should also know that there are 4 stages of cancer. By knowing the 4 stages, it actually helps the doctors and patient to plan treatment and predict a person’s chance of recovery.
Many people won’t believe if I said there is Stage 0 in cancer disease. Stage 0 happened when the cells are still located in the place and not invaded into nearby tissues. These stages can be cured by removing the entire tumour with surgery. By doing that, we can at least free ourselves from getting cancer! Isn’t it amazing?
For Stage l, it is a small cancer or tumour that has not grown deeply into nearby tissue yet. It is also not fully spread to the lymph nodes or other part of the body. We can assume that Stage l is an early-stage of cancer.
Move to the Stage ll and lll, it happened when the indicate cancer or tumour that are larger in size have grown deeply and started to spread to the lymph nodes but not to other parts of the body yet. Usually, when the patient knew that they are already on this stages, doctors will ask them to continue doing the treatment and having a chemotherapy. This is to ensure that the cancer cells will not spread easily to other parts of the body.
Finally, we have move to the final stage which is Stage lV. If this stage has occurred, it means that the cancer has spread to the other organs of part of the body! If this problem has happened, the chances to be cured are pretty low. Patients will need to go through chemotherapy in order to be as healthy as before.
So, in order to make sure ourselves free from getting cancer, we should take serious in health matter and not just take these things for granted. If we treat our body well, we will also live well. Like people say, healthy life will lead to happy life!
