Gastrointestinal cancers and 8 tips to avoid them

February 21, 2020 0 1 minute, 58 seconds read

Gastrointestinal cancers are the most common cancers worldwide. For example, one in every twenty individual will develop colon cancer.

Common GI cancers include cancers of the oesophagus, stomach, colon, gall bladder, bile duct, pancreas and liver. Their treatment depends on the stage in which they are found. If detected early and before they have spread in the body, they can potentially be cured by surgery.

However, the gastrointestinal system is encased in a protective abdominal wall and oesophagus is seated deep inside the chest.Because of their location, the symptoms develop late in the course of the disease and when they do develop they are vague and nonspecific. Hence diagnosing these cancers is difficult in early stages and best way to save yourself is to avoid them altogether. 

8 tips to loweryour risk of developing gastrointestinal cancers:

Eat a healthy diet: Eat a variety of fruits and vegetables. Consume whole grains and beans, while avoiding processed food. Limit your sugar and salt intake. Eat a moderate amount of fats and oils. 

Maintain a healthy weight: Excess weight is associated with many GI cancers including colon, pancreas and liver cancer. Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight goes a long way in the prevention of cancer. 

Regularly exercise: Regular exercise lowers the risk of various cancers including colorectal, oesophagal, liver and stomach. It does so by reducing body weight, modulating hormonal levels and boosting your immune system. 

Avoid tobacco: Tobacco consumptions in any form has been one of the major causes of cancer worldwide. Quitting tobacco is one of the best things you can do to reduce your cancer risk. 

Limit alcohol: Alcohol is known to cause liver, oesophagal and colorectal cancer. Limit your alcohol intake to reduce your chances of getting these cancers.

Get vaccinated: Hepatitis B is the major cause of liver cancer. Hepatitis B vaccination protects you from liver cancer. 

Sleep long enough: In today's smartphone-driven world, sleep deprivation is rampant. A good night’s sleep goes a long way in maintaining a healthy life. 

Get screened for cancer: Screening tests help us in detecting cancers in apparently healthy individuals. For example, colon cancer screening is done in people who are more than 45 years and those with a family history of colorectal cancer. Getting yourself screened is one of the important things you can do for your health.

Be alert and stay healthy. Happy living!

Cancer- a word that will send chills down ones spine, especially if it has been mentioned in reference to a loved one. It is the 2nd most common cause of death in the world and the most common cause of premature death (death in the age group of 30 – 69 years). Its social and economic repercussions are way beyond the individual suffering and affect the entire family and community. WHO has predicted that the total number of cancer cases will double by 2040 and will become the leading most cause of death world over.

What is cancer? It is an unregulated and unending growth of cell or group of cells which disregards normal checks and balances laid down by nature. This result in lumps or tumor formation in the body which has potential to spread to all over (metastasis) eventually leading to death. So it’s an irony – a quest of immortality of a cell resulting in demise of a billion.

Causes of cancer with anecdotal examples- Infection (hepatitis B for HCC, HPV for cervical cancer), addiction (smoking, alcohol), obesity, pollution (air pollution and lung cancer), genetic and pure misfortune (cellular accident) is how causes of cancer can be summed up.

Prevention of cancer- 1/3rd to ½ of all cancer can be prevented by reducing exposure of known risk factors.

Vaccination for Hepatitis B and HPV for prevention of liver cancer (HCC) and cancer for cervix are two of the best know examples of primary prevention of cancer. Smoking attributes to more than 90% cancer of oral cavity and 80% lung cancer and is implicated in many other cancers like esophageal, stomach, and pancreas and colon cancer. Avoiding tobacco in all its form and making once home and work place smoke free is possibly the best cancer prevention strategy. Similarly alcohol is associated with 10 different types of cancers. As per W.H.O avoiding alcohol is one of the important actionable points against cancer. Obesity has emerged as a major risk factor for cancer. It already accounts for 6% cases of breast, 8% of colon and more than 30% cases of uterine cancers. It is both the unhealthy diet and lack of physical activity which is responsible for obesity related malignancies. Correcting once lifestyle and eating habits can be preventive against cancer. Pollution especially air is an important health hazard, it now accounts for almost 20% cases for lung cancer.

If one has to draw a personal action plan against cancer it will be like follows

1 Healthy diet rich in fresh fruits, vegetables and legumes and avoiding processed packed foods and simple sugars

2 Avoid alcohol and tobacco products

3 Regular physical activities

4 Vaccinations against Hepatitis B (at birth) and HPV(for young girls)

5 Do your bit to reduce air pollution ( Plant trees, decrease consumption of fossil fuel, use your electoral power to force government in taking policy decisions ensuring clean air to its citizens)
