    Asstt.Prof.,Community Medicine
    AVMCH,Pondicherry
  • 2. Definition
    A group of diseases characterized by :
    • abnormal growth of cells
    • 3. ability to invade adjacent tissues & even distant organs
    • 4. the eventual death of the affected patient if the tumourhas progressed beyond that stage when it can be successfully removed
  • Major categories of Cancer
    I.
    Carcinoma - arise from epithelial cells lining internal surfaces of various organs & from skin epithelium
    Sarcoma- arise from mesodermal cells constituting various connective tissues
    Lymphoma, myeloma & leukaemia- arise from cells of bone marrow & immune systems
  • 5. II.
    “Primary tumour” –
    cancer in the organ of origin
    “Secondary tumour”-
    cancer that has spread to regional lymph nodes and distant organs
  • 6. Problem statement
    Worldwide
    22.4 million living with cancer
    10 million diagnosed every year
    6 million deaths every year
    India
    2.5 million living with cancer
    7 lakhdiagnosed every year
    3.5 lakh deaths every year
  • 7. Worldwide
    INCIDENCE
    Lung (12.3%)
    Breast (10.4%)
    Colorectal (9.3%)
    MORTALITY
    Lung (17.4%)
    Stomach (10.4%)
    Liver (8.8%)
  • 8. Gender wise (Person) distribution of Cancer
    WORLD
    Males (LSC)
    Lung
    Stomach
    Colorectal
    Females (BCC)
    Breast
    Cervix
    Colorectal
    INDIA
    Males
    Oral
    Oesophagus
    Stomach
    Trachea/ bronchus
    Females
    Cervix
    Breast
    Oral
    Oesophagus
  • 9. Time trends
    • 6th cause of death in the 1900s
    • 10. 2ndcause of death in 2000 because of:
    • 11. Increase in life expectancy
    • 12. Better & accurate diagnosis
    • 13. Increase in cigarette smoking
  • Place distribution
    Developed countries: lifestyle and dietary habits
    e.g. Ca lung, Ca breast, Ca colorectal
    Developing countries: infective origin
    e.g. Ca Cervix, Ca Liver, Ca stomach
    Ca stomach common in Japan, not in US
    Ca Cervix more common in SEAR, not in Japan
  • 14. Causes of cancer
    I.Environmental factors
    • Tobacco
    • 15. Alcohol: oesophageal ,liver cancer,rectal cancer
    • 16. Dietary factors:
    Smoked fish-stomach cancer, beef-bowel cancer,high fat diet-breast cancer
    Also food additives & contaminants-suspicion as causative agents
    Low fruit and vegetable intake
  • 17.
  • 18. Components of a cigarette
  • 19. Artificial sweetner (Saccharin)and bladder cancer

  • 33. Asbestos and lung cancer
  • 34. Textile dyeing exposure
  • 35.
  • 36. Chernobyl nuclear tragedy
  • 37. II. Genetic Factors
    1.Mutations in genes result
    in altered proteins
    • During cell division
    • 38. External agents
    2. Most cancers result from
    mutations in somatic cells
    3. Some cancers are caused by
    mutations in germline cells
  • 39. Cancer prevention and control More than 30% of cancer deaths can be preventedPrimary prevention
    Control of tobacco and alcohol consumption
    Personal hygiene
    Radiation protection
    Occupational protection
    Immunization: HPV,Hep.B
  • 40. Primary prevention contd…
    Cautious use of foods, drugs and cosmetics

    Treatment of precancerous lesions
    Legislation
    Cancer education
  • 41.
  • 42. Cancer education:Warning signs of cancer
  • 43. Secondary prevention
    Cancer registration
    Hospital-based registry
    Population-based registry:
    Bangalore, Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Bhopal
    Early detection of case: Screening
    3. Treatment:Surgery,Radiotherapy,chemotherapy
    4. Palliative care: Relief from pain
    and other problems
  • 44. Cancer screening
    Why screening is possible?
    Precancerous or premalignant lesions
    Localized lesions initially
    75% Of cancer are at accessible body sites
  • 45. Methods of cancer screening
    Mass screening of more than one site
    (of cancer)
    Mass screening at single site
    Selective screening: high risk group
  • 46. Epidemiology of Oral cancer
