    1. Chapter ElevenLiving with Cancer and Chronic Conditions

    2. Status of Cancer Today • Annually, over 1.2 million people developed cancer [U.S. 2002] • Contributing factors could be: • aging • tobacco use • high fat foods • pollution • no health insurance • lack of education

    3. Cell Regulation • Cells perform important daily functions • Regulatory genes – responsible for monitoring cell replication, specialization, DNA repair, and suppression • Oncogenes – faulty regulatory genes that fail to function properly • Proto-oncogenes –normal regulatory genes that may become oncogenes

    4. Oncogene Formation • All cells have proto-oncogenes • 3 mechanisms that contribute to oncogene formation: • genetic mutations • viral infections • presence of carcinogens, environmental agents

    5. Characteristics of a Cancerous Cell • Infinite life expectancy (telomerase enzyme) • Absence of contact inhibition • Absence of cellular cohesiveness (metastasis) • Ability to control extra blood supply (angiogenesis potential)

    6. Carcinoma Sarcoma Lymphoma Leukemia Melanoma Neuroblastoma Adenocarcinoma Hepatoma Benign vs. malignant growths are not always safe Types of Cancers

    7. How Cancer Spreads

    8. Lung Breast Uterus Vagina Ovary Lymph Cervix Prostate Testicle Colon/rectum Pancreas Skin Common Cancer Sitesof the Body

    9. Self-Check (Breast)

    10. Self-Check (Testicles)

    11. ABCDE’s of Skin Cancer Asymmetry Border Color Diameter Elevation

    12. 7 Warning Signs of Cancer Change in bowel/bladder habits Asore that won’t heal Unusual bleeding Thickening or lump Indigestion Obvious change in wart/mole Nagging cough

    13. Treatment for Cancer • Surgery • Radiation • Chemotherapy • Immunotherapy • Alternative cancer therapies

    14. Risk Reduction • Know family history • Avoid tobacco • Eat properly • Monitor environmental and occupational exposure to carcinogens

    15. Risk Reduction (cont’d) • Control body weight • Exercise regularly • Limit UV rays • Consume alcohol moderately

    16. Systemic lupus erythematosus Crohn’s Disease Multiple Sclerosis Diabetes mellitus (Type 1 and 2) Alzheimer’s Disease Sickle Cell Disease Other ChronicHealth Conditions
