Everyone knows that early diagnosis of cancer is of great importance. The earlier the cancer cells in the body, the greater the chance for full recovery. Often, the time diagnosis saves lives. Israel is one of the first places in the world as to cure cancer. In this country permanently allocated substantial funds for research and development of new and more effective tools and techniques treatment and diagnosis of this dangerous disease.
Not surprisingly, many successful medical development – comes from here. The results of these efforts appreciated by the medical community worldwide. For example, recently in Israel differs from that of a cancer patient. This fact was used by Israeli scientists – they found more than 30 different chemical compounds that are present exclusively in kotorye lung cancer patients. With the use of modern nanotechnology was designed a special device that determines the composition of exhaled air. Diagnosis is absolutely non-invasive – and therefore painless. With it, no doubt do much to improve cure rates of lung cancer – Israeli experts say. Early diagnosis of lung cancer so far is not effective.
This is due to the fact that in the early stages zabolevaniya patients As a rule, there are no symptoms or pain. Typically, a malignant tumor is discovered accidentally in the course of the next X-ray of the chest. However, even data analysis can be interpreted incorrectly – as lung tumors are difficult to distinguish on radiographs. Lung cancer is discovered in the late stages, almost defies quality recovery. It is an insidious disease is characterized by aggressiveness and bystrotecheniem – so early diagnosis of disease is crucial. A new technique for diagnosing cancer, developed by scientists from Israel, has an accuracy of over 85%. This is – very high.
With mutations in BRCA2, the risk increases to four or five times, the same increase in risk is in women carrying mutations in another gene, BRCA1. Both genes are tumor suppressors, that is the norm, they protected the cells from being able to have those cancer. In the presence of mutations, this does not happen, and chances are that the cell crossed the critical threshold, and turn into cancer, not only will cause breast cancer, and ovarian cancer. Thousands of women belong to families with a long family history of breast cancer or ovarian cancer in these families were dying from cancer of his mother, sister, grandmother and aunt. And the fact that to date, found major gene family forms of breast cancer, gives these families an additional chance to avoid the disease.
They must undergo genetic testing. If mutations are not, it falls apart with a heavy stone “tribal curses.” If, however, found a mutation in the genes BRCA, woman should take steps to reduce the risk: take regular mammograms to catch tumors at their earliest stages. To date, genetic scan mutations in these genes included a number of government programs to combat breast cancer in many countries. After all, the earlier the identification of a mutation, the easier it is to prevent disaster and save lives!
