  • Interesting...If you put some of your information on other slides it would have made some of the slides easier to read...I'm not sure about your call to action other than the very graphic photos.

Caseyb.hp project 2

  1. 1. Danger of Cancer By: Casey Buechner* www.mysafetysign.com
  2. 2. What is Cancer? It’s a group of diseases characterized by uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cell. *Pg 366-367 from textbook* commons.wikimedia.org
  3. 3. How does Cancer Start and Spread? • It’s called Metastasizing – Normal cells reproduce themselves in an orderly way, but when the nuclei lose their ability to regulate and control cell growth cell division is disrupted and mutant cells can develop. Some cells keep on growing resulting in tumors, either benign or malignant. – Normally the DNA in the nucleus works to repair and replace the bad cells, but defects in the genes (from outside sources like radiation, chemicals, and viruses) allow the cell to grow into a tumor. – Once the abnormal cell has multiplied to about a million cancer cells, the tumor may go undetected for a significant period of time, not harming the human body for quite some time. – Once the tumor receives oxygen and nutrients from the blood vessels that formed into the tumor, the cancer cells can now break away and migrate to other parts of the body, where they can cause new cancer throughout the body.*pg 366-367 from textbook
  4. 4. What are we going to look into today? Oral Cancer*http://my.firefighternation.com/forum/topics/dipping-suggestions-on-quitting-smokless-tabbaco
  5. 5. Risk Factors with Oral Cancer Heavy use of tobacco Excessive alcohol consumptionhttps://encrypted-tbn1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd http://blog.cleveland.com/open_9GcSlrnPwIcex8- impact/2009/05/large_Snus-4jP99hqeQe0rMM8mrQXlUCLIgtE3fc Tobacco-smokeless.jpg_wA_2-_nRA Sexually transmitted virus called HPV Poor nutrition http://www.dreamstime.com/unhealthy- food-pyramid-thumb7331111.jpg *http://www.bloomberg.com/image/i5WVnEBO_GOQ.jpg***1.

  6. 6. Symptoms of Oral cancer• A sore that doesnt heal• A lump or thickening of the skin or lining of your mouth• A white or reddish patch on the inside of your mouth• Voice changes• Persistent bad breath• Feeling that something is caught in your throat *http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/mouth-cancer/DS01089/DSECTION=symptoms *http://www.idph.state.il.us/cancer/factsheets/oralcancer.htm
  7. 7. How can You Prevent it???? STOP USING TOBACCO! Smokers are six times more likely than nonsmokers to develop these cancers. Smokeless tobacco ("snuff" or chewing tobacco) is associated with cancers of the cheek, gums and inner surface of the lips. Smokeless tobacco increases the risk of these cancers by about 50 times. http://www.thedrum.com/uploads/drum_basic_article/98543/main_images/no_smoking-http://www.idph.state.il.us/cancer/factsheets/oralcancer.htm 2158_0.jpg
  8. 8. Drink alcohol only in moderation, it at all! Chronic excessive alcohol use can irritate the cells in your mouth, making them vulnerable to mouth cancer. If you choose to drink alcohol, limit yourself to one drink a day if youre a woman or two drinks a day if youre a man.*http://alcoholrehabsite.net/images/alcohol-rehab-1.jpg*http://www.idph.state.il.us/cancer/factsheets/oralcancer.htm
  9. 9. Monthly Self Exams and Regular dentist Visits See a dentist or doctor if any symptoms occur. At least once a year, ask a doctor or dentist to screen you for oral cancer.*http://rankmydentist.com/knowledgebasegallery/ORALCANCER_EXAM.jpgo http://www.idph.state.il.us/cancer/factsheets/oralcancer.htm
