  8. November is also Stomach Cancer Awareness Month

    November is also Stomach Cancer Awareness Month Stomach cancer is caused by changes in the cells of the stomach, although it's unclear exactly why these changes occur.
    Cancer begins with a change (mutation) in the structure of the DNA in cells, which can affect how they grow. This means cells grow and reproduce uncontrollably, producing a lump of tissue called a tumor.
    Left untreated, cancer can spread to other parts of the body, usually through the lymphatic system (a network of vessels and glands called lymph nodes located throughout the body).
    Once the cancer reaches your lymphatic system, it's capable of spreading to other parts of your body, including your blood, bones and organs.
    It's not known what triggers the changes in DNA that lead to stomach cancer and why only a small number of people develop the condition.
    Causes of Stomach Cancer :
    • Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori)
    It is a common type of bacteria. In most people, these bacteria are harmless, but in some people an H. pylori infection can cause problems such as stomach ulcers, recurring bouts of indigestion or long-term inflammation of the stomach lining.
    • Age and gender
    • Smoking
    • Diet
    • Family history

  11. Liver Cancer Awareness Month

    October is also Liver Cancer Awareness Month. Please know your limit during Dashain. Drink sensibly alcohol like Raksi, Wine , Beer, Vodka,Whisky,Rum,Amaretto, Gin, Port,Tequila Shots,Brandy and Mulled Wine. In our bodies, alcohol (ethanol) is converted into a toxic chemical called acetaldehyde.It can cause cancer by damaging DNA and stopping our cells from repairing this damage. The International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified acetaldehyde formed as a result of drinking alcohol as being a cause of cancer, along with alcohol itself.Acetaldehyde also causes liver cells to grow faster than normal. These regenerating cells are more likely to pick up changes in their genes that could lead to cancer (Cancer Research UK). ‪#‎LiverCancer‬ ‪#‎Alcohol‬ ‪#‎October‬ ‪#‎Awareness‬ ‪#‎DashainFestival‬ ‪#‎KnowYourLimit‬ ...
