Breast Cancer Awareness

Stage I

 Is Either a tumor mass 2 centimeters or smaller within the breast; a tumor 2 cm or less along with small clusters of cancer cells in the lymph nodes; or cancer cells (no tumor) found in the lymph nodes. Treatment may involve mastectomy or lumpectomy and radiation; sometimes chemo or hormone therapy. The five-year survival rate is high—88 percent.

Stage II

Stage IIA can include any tumor that’s 2 to 5 cm but hasn’t spread to the lymph nodes, or is smaller than 2 cm and has spread to up to three nodes under the arm or near the breastbone. A stage IIB tumor is either 2 to 5 cm with cancer also in lymph nodes, or is larger than 5 cm with no lymph nodes involved. Surgery, chemo and/or hormone therapy may be needed.

Stage III

There are several different scenarios. For instance, it may be a tumor of any size that has also invaded the chest wall or skin; the cancer may also have reached lymph nodes in the collarbone area or have affected 10 or more lymph nodes under the arm. Treatment may involve chemo, surgery (possibly mastectomy), often radiation and appropriate drugs.

Stage IV

 Is a small percentage of cancers are diagnosed at this stage, in which cells have spread from the bloodstream, tissue or lymph system (typically to bones, lungs, liver or brain). Treatments such as drugs for hormone-sensitive cancers, chemo and targeted therapies have progressed—docs can now keep some stage IV cancers at bay for up to 20 years.

The Benefits of Exercise when Cancer is Lurking

Don’t Forget to Include Exercise in Your Cancer Treatments!

how-exercise-can-complement-cancer-treatmentExercise is an important part of any cancer treatment program. Cancer develops as a result of free radicals forming in the body. Exercise helps to release toxins and free radicals from the body naturally without medications. Cancer treatments can take a toll on the body, so it is important to build a healthy immune system beforehand in order to maintain a successful treatment program. Here are the primary benefits of exercise in cancer patients.

Improve Prognosis With Exercise
After a cancer diagnosis, exercise! It seems counter-intuitive, but you should exercise to keep the blood pumping and the body in the best shape it can be. When all of your body’s systems are operating properly, the toxins can be expelled, and cancer is less likely to grow and spread throughout the body. If the toxins and free radicals are expelled faster, the cancer cells will not have what they need to grow and thrive in your body. Exercise is one of the best defenses that cancer patients can supplement their treatments with. cancer awareness
Fight Cancer Naturally With Exercise
Exercise helps cancer patients fight cancer naturally, in addition to the measures they may take with their doctor. Vitamin C and other natural regimens are effective, but exercise is essential to fighting cancer. Research has shown that people who are physically fit will heal faster. After surgery and tumor removal, faster healing times will be important. This is one of the most difficult things to convince patients to do, but once people exercise, they tend to feel more energetic, positive and even motivated!

Reduce the Risk of Cancer and Recurring Episodes With Exercise
Once you have kicked your cancer into remission, you should continue to exercise to prevent recurring incidents of cancer. Most oncologists recommend 30 minutes daily for five times per week, but this will vary depending upon the patient’s energy level and condition. Whether you are fighting breast cancer or mesothelioma, it is important to talk to your doctor to develop a plan that will work for you.
