  • DIAGNOSIS • • • • Screening Self examinations Biopsy X-rays, CT scans, MRI scans, PET scans, and ultrasound scans • Molecular diagnostic test
  • TREATMENTS • • • • • • • Surgery Radiotherapy Chemotherapy Immunotherapy Hormone therapy Gene therapy Cancer-specific immune system cells to treat cancer
  • 2013 ESTIMATES
  • Cancer scenario in India Year wise total cancer prevalence in India [ICMR, 2006; ICMR, 2009]
  • Statewise depiction of the most incident cancers in India [Koul, 2010; ICMR, 2001; Somdatta, 2008; Das, 2005; Sharma, 2009; Gaur, 2006; Prasad, 2005; Malothu, 2010; Sumath STATEWISE DEPICTION OF CANCER IN INDIA Statewise depiction of the most incident cancers in India [Koul, 2010; ICMR, 2001; Somdatta, 2008; Das, 2005; Sharma, 2009; Gaur, 2006; Prasad, 2005; Malothu, 2010; Sumathi, 2009; (b) http//]
  • Cancer causes in India o o o o o Dietary habits Tobacco Alcohol Radiation Miscellaneous pollutants
  • ETIOLOGICAL FACTORS FOR DIFFERENT CANCERS IN INDIA SMOKING & HOOKAH BIDI & HOOKAH SMOKING SMOKED MEAT,TOBACCO, HOOKAH BETEL NUT, PANMASALA, ALCOHOL BETEL CHEWING TOBACCO USE IN DIFFERENT FORM PAN MASALA AND ALCOHOL NUCLEAR POLLUTION TUIBUR AIR POLLUTION GALL STONES PAN MASALA & GUTKA Etiological factors for the prevalence of different cancers in India [Koul et al, 2010; ICMR, 2001; Somdatta et al, 2008; Sharma et al, 2009; Gaur et al, 2006; Prasad et al, 2005; Malothu et al, 2010; Sumathi et al, 2009; (b): http//
  • COMPARISON OF CANCER INDIA WITH GLOBAL SCENARIO • 2020- 10 million deaths,70% in developing countries ( Murray et al,1996) • Incidence in India less than developed countries (Fenley et al ,2001) • Lung cancer worldwide 14%,all of india 6.8%(Nandakumar,2001) • South east asian countries including India, lower rates of stomach cancer (Parkin et al,1999,WHO,2001),mizoram shows increased no cases ( Hadjiiski et al, 2006)
  • INDIAN SCENARIO WITH USA (2001) Comparison of cancer; Indian scenario with USA [Fenley et al, 2001]
  • Preventive measures of cancer o physical activities o avoiding obesities o healthy dietary practices o reducing occupational and environmental exposures o reducing alcohol uses o immunization against hepatitis B virus o safe sexual practices for avoiding cancer genesis
  • RECENT STUDIES • Lifestyle changes reduce the risk of prostate cancer( published in the journal Nutrition and Cancer, was carried out by researchers at UCLA's Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center (JCCC).) • Researchers Aiming To Suppress Therapy Resistance In Brain Cancer ( • Fish Oils Reduce Risk Of Breast Cancer (
  • Life style changes reduce the risk of prostate cancer (Nutrition and Cancer" Lenore Arab, PhD, et al. Nutrition and Cancer Jun-2013) • Focuses on 8 new lifestyle recommendation by WCRF • Encouraged physical activity and consumption of food low in caloric density(under 125kcal/100 grams of food) • who followed less than 4 recommendation at higher risk(38%)
  • Research aiming to suppress therapy resistance in brain cancer (Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres. Medical News Today. MediLexicon, Intl., 29 Jun. 2013. Web) • Gliomas are malignant brain tumors, treatment combines radiotherapy with anticancer drug temozolomide • Some cases shows resistance , DNA repair mechanism aided by NAD+ molecule • QRTP enzyme break down quinolinic acid to NAD+ molecule • Agent directed against enzyme help suppress therapy resistance in brain
  • Fish oil reduces the risk of breast cancer (Nordqvist, Joseph. "Fish Oils Reduce Risk Of Breast Cancer." Medical News Today. MediLexicon, Intl., 28 Jun. 2013. Web.) • Links fish,n-3PUFA intake and risk of breast cancer • Marine n-3PUFA intake associated with 14% reduced risk of breast cancer • For every 0.1g/day increase in consumption ,risk reduced by 5%
  • CONCLUSION • • • • Increase in the no: of cancer patients every year Factors responsible should be controlled Create awareness about cancer and its prevention Careful about diet and lifestyle
